What is your Priority Club status?
Platinum

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

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?

Good:
-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.

Bad:
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.
