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

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
2 stays inside one week. Booked cheapest, received club room on club floor (looks like a regular room with a nespresso machine)

How are the rooms?
Tired. Lots of things broken.
One room for example had a broken doorlock (did not close), broken fixtures at the bathtub, damaged furnuture. The other had a non working drain in the sink, a broken safe. One of the two rooms was extremely dusty.

How is the exec. lounge?
Weird. It consists of two balconies off the hallway and reception desk just in front of the elevators.
Food quality is lousy and very limited. For happy hour the have a few canapes and if you know (they never will tell you) you can order some warm food (mainly inedible) which they bring from downstairs.
One of the attendants there is very nice, receptionist was inefficient (despite mentioning that we need late checkout key stopped working at noon, everything took forever - 15 min for checking out despite nobody else being there)

Did you receive a welcome gift?
One time some white paste with nuts, second time a small towel and some cookies in a box. Fruit plate, 1 bottle of water

How was the minibar?
Average. Not enough water

What was good and what was bad?

- next to a huge shopping mall
- free shuttle to/from Gautrain station

- condition of the rooms
- upgrade
- food in club
- breakfast in main restaurant (selection, quality)

Value for $ or Priority Club Points?
It is a bit expensive for what they offer

Would you return?
Only if I need more nights to maintain RA status
