IC KUALA LUMPUR

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

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
o Booked (both times) = IC Club Room
o #1 Midweek Modded online to Amb Suite, offered Exec Suite at 6pm Checkin, held out for Amb Suite with 1hour wait at 7pm
o #2 Weekend Modded online to Exec Suite, Amb Suite given at 10am checkin


How are the rooms?
+ Hardly lived in, nicely decorated, virtually as new feel
+ Double sized Lounge cum dining room
Dining Table = 8 seater
Large sofa + 2 armchairs, beriau with large TV
kitcnettte with sink, full fridge/freezer, contained minbar drinks set up
extra closset room
extra tolier/wash-basin room
+ Large Bedroom
KingSizePlus double bed (4x extra large pilliows)
armchair and foot stool, workdesk+chair, bereau with TV
another minibar in bureau
+large bathroom
separate shower cubicle and bath
his n hers sinks
toliet room with bidet
walkin closset with safe

How is the exec. lounge?
pleasant and large lots of seating
evening food offering has hot chef station, different country theme each night
sparkling wine (so so only, preferred a beer )

Did you receive a welcome gift?
local malaysian bag

How was the minibar?
#stay1 - unplanned Amb Suite room, had full spec miniatures and beers
#stay2 - planned Amb suite roo, had no minatures
That said ask in lounge for your preference, ie sodas/beers/minaturs and it is organised. (negative they gave me warm sodas/beers top up.... doh !)

What was good and what was bad?

-Good
+ upgrade 2-cat from club->exec suite->amb suite
(hotel has 2x Amb suites, 1x Pres suite after the Exec Suites)
+ Lounge access allows restaurant b/f if preferred

Neutral
o Both stays incorrectly posted as non-qual !
o I thought restaurant b/f offerings=service was quite poor for a 5*

-Bad

Value for $ or Priority Club Points?
Indeed, at these prices why book with 30k points or book less than an IC Club Room

Would you return?[/QUOTE]
+ Definitely, paid IC Club with suite upgrade is excellnt value compared to Europe rates
+ Even if you book entry level room, you now get club room with lounge access (unlike before)
