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

Yes, surprisingly so.

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?

Booked standard, given Club room. The hotel was very busy. They said the previous night it was 100% full. The downtown IC was completely sold out.

How are the rooms?
All new and renovated. In fact the whole hotel seems to have had quite a refresh. My room was as good as any other new modern IC room.

How is the Club lounge?
Very nice. Almost as good as the downtown IC. And they have staff always present for check in and check out in the Club.

Did you receive a welcome gift?

A fruit bowl and a cheese plate.

How was the minibar?

Quite good. Laurent Perrier Champagne, NZ white and Sonoma Pinot. Good quality tequila and rum too.

What was good and what was bad?

-Good
The hotel renovation was well done
Good club service
Good location for the outlet malls and access to north-south highways.

-Bad
Nothing bad. This hotel has moved from the lower tier of IC's to at least mid-tier if not higher.

Value for $ or Priority Club Points?
Yes, good value.
