A pleasure. Definitely if taking your Mother then the lounge on 7 is a must. The window view is very hard not to be impressed by, even as a regular. For your Mother it is a great place to sit and get a uniquely wide view across Wellington Arch, the bottom end of Green Park towards Buckingham Palace and of course Hyde Park Corner towards the new Peninsular hotel.

The afternoon tea is of a nice standard. Food in the evening a little thin but reasonable quality. but drinks and champagne are plentiful. I hope the breakfast is back for you by time of your stay. It is of a very nice quality and much more efficient service wise than on ground floor. I am sure she will enjoy. And what a good way to use a BOGO.

Thanks, I'll definitely report back. And the combination of being RA as well as a BOGO is certainly hard to beat. Will keep ypu updated how the stay goes next week.

Anyone know if the $100 credit one gets by booking via Amextravel on the Plat Amex would qualify to be used towards the lounge supplement?

It says: “A $100 Onsite Credit to Spend on Qualifying Dining, Spa, and Resort Activities

Also, I don’t see any lounge rates, is that right? Only accessible via Virtuoso or by paying the supplement at the hotel?

So Deluxe rooms do get club access or just Executive rooms?

Neither I'm afraid. ICPL do major in misleading room definitions. Only the largest options come with lounge. If you have RA then of course you get it. Other wise I think it's about £120 per night.

The website says that Executive rooms get club lounge access. Are you just saying it's suites that get club lounge access?

Hi Skyteam. Is possible I misunderstood but was discussing same subject with one of the guys there a few months back (was booking a room for the son on points) and I came away with the impression that none of the rooms designated club or Exec had it. You got me interested as well now. I will ask an insider and come back to you. She is off till Tuesday but usually comes back quickly .... if that suits your time frame.

AFAIK club access isn't included on any room types until you get to their signature suites which I don't think you can book online.

I find the £110 ambassador fee for 2 adults pretty good value if you make use of all the facilities and have late checkout until 4pm the following day.

Having paid access only does keep the numbers down and it never seems to be busy unlike the O2 for example.

I'm staying on Saturday/Sunday. Anyone know whether any of the room types have fridges? If so, which? Thanks.
