Arrow Please post your Ambassador experiences (Archive Thread 2015)

I've read a lot experence on RA benifit but seldom on Ambassador experiences. So I'm thinking to start a thread to post Ambassador experiences:


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?
- How are the rooms?
- How is the exec. lounge?
- What was good and what was bad?
- Value for $ or Priority Club Points? Would you return?

How to post

1. Put the name of the hotel in the title of the post

2. 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. I've formatted each line so that you can paste in between them having deleted these opening comments:

What is your IHG Rewards Club status?
Gold Ambassador

Were you happy with the hotel/stay?
Yes, nice room, view and great hotel location.

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked King Bed Room Club Lounge Access and received Corner Club Room on
one of the Club Floors. Fruit plate, a bottle of tasty red wine (0,7l) and of course water was waiting in the room for us.

How are the rooms?
Room was large, located at 38th floor with nice view on the culture palast.

How is the exec. lounge?
Nice lounge area, at new years eve day totally overfilled the hole day.
The days after probably normal level of people and much more smooth. Breakfast with egg menue (omlette was great) and overall good quality. Evening spread with some hot and cold staff, alcohol etc..
But lounge staff isn't very attentive for your needs.

What was good and what was bad?
+ I like the room design, available views and club lounge
- Lounge staff is not very attentive

Value for $? Would you return?
Fair prices also over new years eve, will definitly return.

What is your IHG Rewards Club status?
Platinum Ambassador

Were you happy with the hotel/stay?
Yes, nice room, great location.

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked cheapest "Standard Room Queen Skyline View", upgraded to "Superior Room River View" the next day.
A week before check in date, it upgraded to "Delxue Room".
Upon check in, the front desk offered upgrading to King Club Studio for 40EUR/night, and we can get the room immediately. (It was 10:30 AM.)
We happily took the offer. (40EUR is on the room charge, so with points, too.)

How are the rooms?
Room was large, located at 20th floor (the highest floor.)

What was your welcome gift?
A LED candel with IC Frankfurt logos on it.
Fruit.
But no personal letter.

How is the exec. lounge?
For some reason the club was closed during Christmas season.
The lounge was moved to the first floor restaurant.
We could have food, drinks and breakfast there.
The food was so so, but the breakfast was great.

What was good and what was bad?
+ Nice view of the river, quiet area.
- The original louge was closed, so no night view at 21st floor.

Value for $? Would you return?
very good value, will definitely stay here if ever return.

Intercontinental Miramar - Panama

Intercontinental Miramar - Panama
Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked Executive room got two bedroom suite

How are the rooms?
The suite was huge! I was able to have a business meeting in my own private lounge area. The suite was a little old though but I had the best view in the hotel.

How is the exec. lounge?
Really good, excellent choice of food and drinks, staff is friendly and views are amazing.

What was good and what was bad?
The staff was very friendly.
The Hotel is really nice.
Bad: they never have space on the gym or on the spa... This hotel is famous in panama and its more like a social club where high class Panamenians go and spend their day with a membership...

Value for $ or Priority Club Points? Would you return?
I would return, Paid $140 for a suite was really good!

IC Dusseldorf

What is your IHG Rewards Club status?
Platinum Ambassador

Were you happy with the hotel/stay?
Yes

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked an Executive Suite with BRG. Did not receive an upgrade which is fine.

How are the rooms?
Nice suite, though it could also be a larger Junior Suite.

What was your welcome gift?
Fruit, bottle of water and a box of chocolate.

How is the exec. lounge?
Nice food spread, unfortunately they close at 10pm.

What was good and what was bad?
+ Friendly staff, nice room and decent staff.
- I would not pay for the breakfast in the restaurant. No coffee/orange juice refills offered, way too crowded. (breakfast at the Exec Lounge is way better)

Value for $? Would you return?
Great value since it was a BRG night.
