maybe this doesn't belong here but its an upgrade nevertheless....my wife got a welcome back offer for a free weekend night if she completed one stay before 31st jan....so we booked a night at the sheraton new delhi on a low rate to take advantage of a free night that we could use at a more expensive property....i know the reservation manager at the property so she upgraded us to a club room with lounge benefits, even though the reservation was in my wife's name (preferred status)....

Yeah, the last time I've been there the service wasn't that good as well. Asked for a toothbrush to be delivered in the afternoon, it never came. Called service express at night again and they said there's no one to deliver the toothbrush at that time...
