What is your Priority Club status?

Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked Double Bed Deluxe Room, received Executive Club Room (top floor) with Lounge Access

How are the rooms?
-Rooms are great, most of them with Queen beds. Comfy enough with decent pillow choice.
-Work desk with integral power points + work chair
-40" LCD TV (with some Sky Sports channels).
-Compact bathroom with bath and shower.
-High speed Internet free to IHG members.

How is the exec. lounge?
-Small and crowded
-Food: Had tempura vegetables and deep fried calamari
-Drinks: Reg brand alcohol + some soft drinks
-Breakfast: Had a breakfast in the restaurant so can't comment on that.

What was good and what was bad?

-Great location, right opposite Blackfriars Train Station and Underground. Close to main London attractions.
-Good status recognition: got a welcome drink, 500 bonus points, room upgrade and been offered a breakfast for 5.
-2pm late check out available on request.

Nothing really

Value for $ or Priority Club Points? Would you return?
Yes! Paid 186 and got a room upgrade (worth 250+), which is a great price for Central London. I would never use 45k points here though as I'd better stick with IC Park Lane for 50k.
