+ staff
+ sukhumvit location works well for me
+ IC BKK is counting stays, got an extra made up Chocolate gift as nn'th visit

-Bad
- Nothing (as usual)

Value for $ or Priority Club Points?
great value on discounted corporate rate (not worth using points)
even if no corporate rate rooms left, cash is better than using points here
