Elite Level: Titanium
Award stay: Yes
LNF stay: No
SNAs redeemed: Yes
Comments: Used SNAs for specific suites but cleared into the Giglio Prestige room for whatever reason. Stay was fine but they definitely do not upgrade mid-stay even if you mention that it's something you're open to at check-in.

Date(s): 7 nights in September
Room booked: Superior Room

Comments: The stay was fine but breakfast I thought was so-so in terms of quality. They provide a 10 EUR food voucher which is in addition to the breakfast as long as you choose the breakfast (or points) as your welcome amenity.

Which suite you select?
And do they give you the SNA back?

Comments: i usually get upgraded to a thikana suite here but still tried to use my suite nights as i have a few that will end up expiring at the end of the year....the system wouldn't allow me to use the suite nights but i got upgraded anyway....also, when i was checking in, the check in agent thanked me for being a titanium....i corrected her saying that i'm an ambassador but she said her system shows me as a titanium....this is the second property that shows me as titanium rather than ambassador....i've pointed this out to my ambassador....

Comments: Gratefull for the suite upgrade. Unfortunately, the suite was on the 1st floor with one of the worst view ever. “Luckily” there was bad weather for all the 2 days…! Nice size suite (not huge…but we’re in Paris) but small bathroom with single sink. Water pressure/temperature in the shower disappointing. We had 3 main service issues (1-underwhelming check-in without mention of the status, of the welcome benefits, of the restaurant location/times,…, 2-terrible service at breakfast the 1st day and 3-no turndown service even if asked (and confirmed) by chat). Great attention before arrival from a wonderful guest relation officer. Overall: fine for the price I paid…but I would be really disappointed if I had paid the full price of my suite (+/- 2500 euro) for the 2 nights.

Comments: Was originally upgraded in the app to a junior suite, but delayed arrival at the last min (property waived cancellation charge without asking). Wasn't expecting any upgrade after cancelling the first couple nights but was still upgraded on arrival, just not to a suite. Property offers free breakfast in the restaurant for plats as there is no lounge and drink / tapas vouchers.
