What is your IHG Rewards Club status?

Spire Royal Ambassador

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 cheapest advance rate and received a Harbor View Junior Suite + upsell to club.

How are the rooms?
Spacious junior suite with walk-in closet, seperate living room and large bathroom. Nice views of HK harbor.
First time for me in a renovated one - very nice.

How is the exec. lounge?
- Friendly, attentive service
- Limited breakfast (only "standard" egg dishes to order), but large selection of fruit
- Champagne for happy hour, and varying food options. However, hot food was mostly deep fried
- Plently of bizarre guests while I was staying

Overall, a standard lounge for China, yet with flawless service.


What was good and what was bad?
GOOD

- Very nice suite
- Excellent service and friendly staff
- Price
- Location is pretty good for TST and HK Island access
- Room ready at 10 am

BAD
- It simply is a 35 year old hotel with drawbacks, like low ceilings, narrow windows etc.

Value for HKD or IHG Rewards Club Points? Would you return?
Would return when they have a good rate. HK is a city where other hotels usually have a better value than IHG's.
