I booked the "Romance Package" to spend a special night with my wife which included an executive spa suite room, two cocktails, cooked breakfast and late check out.
Check in was easy friendly and efficient. Our first impression of the room was that it was reasonably neat and tidy without being anything special.
We were having dinner with friends at Q Manhattans just around the corner but thought we would all have a drink and make use of our complimentary cocktail voucher first. Despite ordering one of their specialty cocktails the barman made it obvious verbally that he was unsure of the ingredients then left the blender going while he disappeared for 5 minutes. Then just as he was finishing my wife's drink her friend asked me to order her the same. The barman decided to use what was left from my wife's and just fill the glass about 3/4 full. We didn't stick around long and made our way to Q Manhattans where the service is great.
My other big issue was the sound. I'm quite a heavy sleeper but was kept awake/ woken by various things including other guests and music from a pub/club but especially the elevator from about 6am in the morning and had no chance of sleeping after that with both the chime and mechanical noise coming straight through the wall.
The only saving grace was breakfast. Whilst very simple the food was lovely and the staff very professional.
Whilst everything was included as stated there was nothing to make it a "romance package" as such. Even something simple and cheap like some flowers or chocolates or even some bath salts for the spa would have set it apart without being super expensive.
It was a bit of a treat for us and as its not something we do all that often were not that hard to please but in all honesty we wish we had just stayed home . It was very overpriced for the experience we had and we won't be returning.
