IC Pattaya

Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay? Yes, delighted once again
Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
o Booked = Classic Garden (Paid)
o Early Mod = Club Tropical Pavillion
o Day before = Pav 8 Rm533 (my usual room) = Club Ocean View Terrace Suite


How are the rooms?
o 540 Refurbished July2016
o Light colour sceme, lots of lighting, reading lights, power points, flatscreen TV, minibar unit, caffetiere coffee
o Deep sofa and rectangular table
o covered outside hexagonal terrace with chaiselong, ocean view over the villa
o Bathroom refurbed, really big Tub, his n hers sinks, walkin shower, nice HANN toiletries. Bathrom area is divided from bedroom half by a heavy curtain

How is the exec. lounge?
o Mid floor of infiniti building (stairs or lift) 1-level below infiniti, 1-level above beach
o Nice and large, plenty of chairs, tables, open windows, 2x PC's
o Breakfast until 11am, afternoon tea, evening canapes+drinks (including cocktails)

Did you receive a welcome gift?
Always the same, padded neck support (can buy a Big-C for 100thb )

How was the minibar?
o 6x 20cl bottles Henesy/Jim Beam/Black-Label/Gin/Smirnoff/Bacardi
o Small number of sodas/waters/beers, 375cl White wine, red wine

What was good and what was bad?

-Good
o Everything
RA benies without prompting
o instead of lesser temporary room, swapped from intended Pav8 Rm533 to Pav10 Rm540 at 10am

-Bad
Nothing (though July is now rainy season, 18th was a very wet day+night)

-Neutral
o First hotel shuttle to Pattaya Center not until 12noon. Could do with earlier shuttle service
o Multiple Conferences each day (ie both checkin + departure), taking over both infiniti bar and beach level

Value for $ or Priority Club Points?
Mostly I get rooms less than 7000++thb (35k points = usd245) so always paid nights to date.
(Probably averaged my 20nights at 6000++ = 7000thb = $210 )

Would you return?[/QUOTE]
Yes this was 5th or 6th stay for 22 or so nights since Apr2016 - Feb2017
(all as Paid nights, all as RA, all previously in Pav8 Rm533, but without a club-lounge open until this night )
