What is your Priority Club status?
Spire

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?
2 QUEEN BEDS for 25000 points
Upgraded to 2 QUEEN BEDS DELUXE on 26th floor (highest level below Club floors)

How are the rooms?
Spacious, bright, nice view (directly opposite another high-rise hotel, but can look sideways)

How is the exec. lounge?
Not given access

What was good and what was bad?
- Recognised as Spire, but appear to have received the same benefits a Plat would have, except for a thick red envelope which will go in the recycling
- Given free late check-out for 2pm; housekeeping didn't disturb until then
- Wifi was good and fast, but got a 2GB limit (this is standard in NZ due to its distance from the rest of the world)
- Staff were very helpful when I needed some extra business items

Value for $ or Priority Club Points? Would you return?
Could have gotten better value for the points elsewhere, as the cash price is quite cheap, but have too many points to burn.
