The Federal Hotel was built specifically to serve the needs of our Nation and it is more than a hotel, it is a piece of Malaysian history & heritage as well as a Hotel for Merdeka as the Federal Hotel is Malaysia's first international class hotel opened just three days before the Nation's declaration of independence on 28 August 1957 to welcome all VIPs, foreign dignitaries and diplomats who arrived in KL to witness Malaya celebrates her independence on 31 August 1957 at Stadium Merdeka.
The Federal Hotel was officially opened by the late Y.T.M Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj or better known as Bapa Malaysia, just in time for the Merdeka Celebrations 60 years ago. The hotel was developed and built from encouragement of Government and personal support from our Nation's founding fathers, the late Tunku Abdul Rahman and the late Tun Razak, as well as the foresight and pioneering spirit of the late Tan Sri Dato' Low Yat.
