It's been too long since my last visit to K.L. to answer question #1 and 4 ...

This should be possible, but I have no contact.

Have you thought of visiting Batu Caves ? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batu_Caves

Are you looking for things to do within town or even out of town ? A trip to the coast (east or west) maybe ?

Try to get a copy of travel guide "Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei" from "Lonely Planet" (Australia). This one is a classic and even though it is aiming at budget travellers, I found the information contained most informative.
My copy is a bit older, but its ISBN is 0-86442-393-4

You are welcome !

A search on google delivers some promising results, but it might be best if you have a view yourself as (due to a lack of experience) I cannot recommend any these.
Search for "chauffeur Kuala Lumpur"
However, many of the hits primarily seem to offer point-to-point chauffeur service rather than renting a car with a driver for whole days. On the other hand, with Malaysia (to my experience) being a service oriented society that tries to please a visitor, I believe that many of these companies would also be willing and able to provide a chauffeured car for whole days. An online inquiry should be possible.

Another batch of agencies worth checking out would be the traditional rental car companies. A call to their reservation center should give answers.

Via one of these inquiries you could also indicate what type (size) of car you would prefer.

Another idea would be to check with the hotels that fall into your preferred category. I assume that those hotels catering for those customers that are not travelling on a stringent budget should either have their own limo service or could arrange it.

Most obvious thing to do would be go to the Petronas Towers and go to the Skybridge. Only thing is that you have to be there early and its free  Smile

1) A very nice hotel

AsiaRooms.com lists hotels from 5 star down to budget and rates are cheap (less than chain rates). You'll also find that people have rated them and also read their comments. Have used this site many times and had no problems. You'll be wanting a hotel in the Bukit Bintang area.  Wink Most of the high end chains are represented.

A good idea, I wouldn't drive in Malaysia...they're insane. Big grin Your hotel concierge can also arrange a car and driver. The hotel I stayed at a few times organised a taxi at an hourly rate, which was good enough for me - to get me around the 'hard to reach on foot' sights in KL itself and then a trip out to Batu Caves the next day. The rest of the time I walked around the areas or rode the monorail. Got to see quite a bit of KL that way.

Shopping, shopping, shopping... laughing   laughing   laughing  Bukit Bintang area has a multitude of malls and also over at KLCC Suria at the twin towers.
As far as everything else, that depends on your interests;
The National Museum is good for an hour or two.
For a great overview of KL try the Menara Tower (but get a taxi to that, it's a killer walk up the hill in the heat).
Chinatown - both day and night
Batu Caves
The bird park is also nice to walk through and there is a garden across the road.
A daytrip down to Melaka, well worth it.

To get to and from the airport use the KLIA Ekspres and on arrival avail yourself of their VIP Service (pre book), with transfer by limo from KL Sentral to your hotel.
