A template for the post is provided in this post.


Central and South America
Europe (except UK)
Middle East and Africa

Please note

This thread is dedicated to the report of the experience and not so much about discussions about each individual hotel, which should be done in the hotel. One of the moderators will add the report to the overview in each thread, which is listed in regions.

If you post here a stay in an InterContinental Hotel as Ambassador or Royal Ambassador Member, your post will be moved accordingly without further notice.

How to post

1. Do not use the "Reply with Review Button" but the regular one

2. Put the name of the hotel in the title of the post and the post

3. Use the following format by extracting it, ie by using "reply quoting", copying the content into memory, then backing out of "reply quoting" and then pasting the copied content into a new post. Each line is formatted so that you can paste in between them having deleted these opening comments:

What is your Priority Club status?

Holiday Inn Express Beijing Minzuyuan, Dec 2018
What is your Priority Club status?
Gold Elite

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?
Booked and received standard (on a discounted rate)

How are the rooms?
- Comfortable yet tired, there's a burnt hole at the carpet likely caused by cigarette, fortunately we and the hotel didn't care.
- Bedside socket and USB at desk
- Office chair is a bit flimsy

How is the exec. lounge?

What was good and what was bad?
- Gold elite recognition with canned drinks for all guests.
- Breakfast hall (Great Room) looks a lot better than TripAdvisor photos and the variety is decent as an HIX, with freshly made eggs and noodles.
- Very helpful reception; when I asked for 2 bottled water due to skipping housekeeping, they gave us whole stay's worth of water.
- Close to metro station and a local supermarket.
- It didn't bother actually but the HIX entrance sign is so in need of maintenance:
while the majority of facilities are in good conditions, and everything is functional, you'd find things here and there that looks a bit old.

Value for $ or Priority Club Points? Would you return?
Good price for its location, will return.

MrsW Jan 13, 19 9:08 am

HIX Schiphol
HIX Schiphol

What is your Priority Club status? Spire Ambassador

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

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive? Booked double and received it. One class of room only.

How are the rooms? Newish

How is the exec. lounge? NA

What was good and what was bad? Airport shuttle free and reliable. Given two bottles of mineral water at check in plus late check out.

Value for $ or Priority Club Points? Would you return? Paid €60. Bargain.
