I stayed here in August in a sky loft room which was definitely not tired. In fact, that room type was only opened a few years ago after a renovation. The top floor hallways were clean throughout my stays, and so was the sky lounge. No complaints.

I just had a two night stay here last month as well. I was in a Passion Queen. I didn't feel the room was dirty at all, but it did have a bit more of a dated look. Unfortunately, the window was missing its shade, and the next morning when I showered the bathroom flooded quite bad (the tub drains into a floor drain below, which was backed up). I raised the issues - in particular the drain - without asking for any specific remedy beyond a fix, and while I was out for a few hours the hotel upgraded me to a skyloft for the next night. What a difference - modern, far more comfortable.

I enjoyed the breakfast (included in my rate), and thought the staff were solid.

I would definitely stay again, but would book directly into a sky loft - or look at other options.

My 2017 upgrade statistics at Klaus K, FWIW:
  • 7 upgrades to Sky Lofts on 7 paid stays
  • 0 upgrades on 1 award stay
We are definitely getting to know the bartenders, thanks to the free Sky Loft drinks (in lieu of a lounge).

Still not showing up on spg.com, but their own site now accepts bookings as from 15 Feb 2018. The lowest rate for double occupancy in the first several weeks seems to be 230

Good to see overall decent impressions of this place. We'll be staying here for a few nights during Christmas week... can't wait.
