I have been divorced from this thread for months since my stay in Aug 2019 but my first thought is... your club lounge area has been unavailable or under renovation for much of the time since opening. Other posts makes it seems it's as haphazard as just some tables and cold plates. I never saw a good review of the "lounge" there. When I was there in Aug 2019 the lounge was closed for "refreshing the concept" (their words, not mine).

Truly disappointing. This is/could be a fantastic property, they have the hard product to rival anything in BP, the location is nearly first rate, and all the staff I interacted with were fantastic. I think Hyatt jumped the gun with the cat upgrade because this place is in no way worth 20k/nt. Is it worth more than 8k, yes probably, but pretty sure their award chart has a couple middle grounds there.

When I stayed (the month it opened) the Lounge was decent. But I may have been one of the few guests to use it since it sounds like it quickly was closed. I had a fantastic stay in July 2019 -- back when it was a steal at 8,000 points per night (plus I got the new property bonus of 500 points a night).

I stayed at the property in August and was somewhat disappointed. No real benefit as Explorist. Only benefit was a room upgrade from standard to standard with view. (And the view is you looking at the tram--presumably the no view rooms are better as they are quieter.

A la carte breakfast was mediocre.

Obviously, the lobby area is fantastic and the room design is tasteful. But I don't think the premium they charge over IC, Marriott, Sofitel, and Kempinski is justified. I think the FS has better reasons to demand that price premium over IC and co.

I stayed here October 2019, and really liked the lounge. It was a nice place to hang out for some appetizers and drinks at night. The breakfast at the lounge was very minimal, but at the time we were given full buffet breakfast as well so it was fine.
