Interesting document! One wonders what the "bad spirits and the negative forces of the underworld" think about the government giving an exception to international resorts to service their guests -...

I know, it's always been one of its good features. Fun fact: Thai immigration appear to use the same Aeron chair at BKK.

Considering the awful excuses for desk chairs found in many hotel rooms, I personally would not complain about finding a good Herman Miller chair in my room!

I agree with the above poster about the Westin, but it's worth noting that the Sheraton is often only a little over 200 SGD++ and is right next to both Newton MRT and the large hawker food centre, if...

Does anyone know if the newly reopened Dali lounge opens 24 hours? If I understand recent posts on this thread correctly, if you have an overnight transit you're fine to sleep in a lounge if your...

I noticed booking with gotogate seems to take 60 off the ARN-SIN return, if that helps anyone.

Omg. Mine says it too, although the "Benefits" link takes me to a page that calls it Platinum Premier, less impressively. It's rather nice to have a separate name - Hilton doesn't do this for...

I think that would probably be a good thing - I'd rather be part of a loyalty scheme that promises reliable benefits than one that makes extravagant promises to unrealistic numbers of people.

That mention of the wet bar reminds me - I had some drinks there a couple of times recently (the last in December) and the second time they had me authorise the payment in RM, and then sneakily...

Consequences of adding award nights on at the end of a paid stay - if any

Just wanted some quick advice from anyone who may have been in the same position. I'm halfway through a 10 night paid stay at Marriott Madrid Auditorium. It's rather comfortable (they found me a...

MH don't deploy their A Team in that dining room - I find one has to be firm and clear, and have low expectations! And I think one has to feel sorry for the staff - they haven't been properly...

That's a very good point, but are MH seriously going to accept reduced or eliminated profit margins for most OWEs flying short haul? Maybe they do. Maybe it's like chain hotels' club lounges - the...

This is what I find interesting. If it's the operating carrier paying, I could see them swallowing the cost of the J lounge at KUL even if I buy a cheap ticket. The F lounge is a different matter; MH...

Is it confirmed or generally known that a carrier like MH benefits financially from keeping an F lounge open that is open to OWEs? I've always wondered whether the fact that I can show up early for a...

My conclusions after 77 Hilton nights this year are pretty similar to others:

1. OLCI if you get a good upgrade. Nothing's guaranteed, but it puts a moderate barrier in the way of the property...

I think the Hilton KL lounge food has gone downhill too, for that matter. I've stayed 6 nights at DT KL in the last few weeks, each time I was upgraded to an executive suite from a base room booked...

Sitting as I am in the Renaissance KL lounge, this is a very apt description of the afternoon tea here too!

In fairness, the Conrad BKK is also no slouch at scones with cream and jam.

Undoubtedly the Conrad. I found the Hilton this year to have rather disappointing food that was difficult to make a dinner out of. The Conrad has a decent buffet and plenty of sparkling wine. The...

I agree completely - I'm a big fan of Singapore, but service and hospitality is a consistent failing. Hotels like the Conrad, or indeed the St Regis, only make sense in Singapore when you're getting...

Thanks for these pointers. I'll bear them in mind. I'm moving to the Hilton Sukhumvit on Friday and I have a feeling I'll prefer the rooms there.

I see! I'd still prefer them to be in a drawer though! :)

Edit: Are you an expat in SIN? I recently based myself there.

I checked in here yesterday. The lounge is very good (although small) with a great selection of imported French cheese and a French sparkling wine (both hardly cheap in SE Asia), plus nice staff. The...
