IC Medellin, Colombia

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

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked cheapest, got executive suite incl. club access

How are the rooms?
Size of approx. 2 regular rooms. Living room with worktable, sofa, chair etc. Bedroom with good size bed. Wooden floor with carpet below the bed. Big bathroom with separate tub and shower. The room seems to have been recently renovated, but they left a few old items in place, like the door to the bathroom, the bathtub and fixtures which makes it look weird.
Hotel itself looks somewhat dated - from the outside it looks like a tear down

How is the exec. lounge?
Weird. They just took a few rooms an both sides of the corridor and added a door between some of the rooms. They have food between 2 pm and 8 pm. Not much selection and very mediocre quality. After 6 pm you can also order hot dishes (around 10 different) and deserts (3 different) from a menu. They need to order from room service and it takes almost half an hour. It seems they are mainly regular appetizers from the restaurant. Service is very friendly and very inefficient.

Did you receive a welcome gift?
Points, fruits (only first day) and water

How was the minibar?
Below average. Some beers, juices and soft drinks


What was good and what was bad?

-Good
- Upgrade to suite plus club
- Staff was very friendly, but often extremely inefficient
- Concierge extremely helpful
- Pool is nice

-Bad
- Club lounge (layout and food)
- Location: you need to take taxis for everything (not expensive, around 3-4 USD to malls and restaurants
- Breakfast in the main restaurant: very small selection of lower quality item. It was more like you would expect at a 3 star place
- Agria. And not even big bottles in the suite.
- Very dim lighting. No reading lights at the bed.
- No power outlets next to bed

Value for $ or Priority Club Points?
The rate was pretty reasonable, but I would rather spend more and have a better experience


Would you return?[/QUOTE]
Most likely not
