Threshold factor was good… great reception from duty manager and ushered to club floor. Traders aims to be a budget Shangri-la.
After first day we are not overwhelmed… the Club check-in was poor. Despite phoning for an early check-in and told the room will be ready for 1pm and arriving at 2pm (normal checkin), the previous guest were given an extended checkout. Therefore we didn’t enter room until after 4pm ☹ Subsequently, we missed evening cocktails as we needed to re-schedule a prior meeting. We got the pointless stuffed camel toy as an apology.
Later (at 9pm) we were given a leaflet covering Club facilities and informed of services available. That meant we missed the complimentary laundry. The evening Club-lounge host (Anisa) did best to correct matters– Thank-you.
So far, not a patch on Hilton, Radisson or Hyatt Club … see my reviews. IMHO If you charge a premium for Club, make the guests feel like they belong, else it’s simply a revenue generator. Hope things improve…
The Traders suite is good size and well decorated. Our’s had a view of the intersection, but the location means there is little else to look at. Internet is very good and available through hotel.. free in rooms. Thank-you. This is very useful when you’re on business. Gym is 24hr… good. 10m pool is indoor and warm. Gym staff are helpful. There are food courts and malls within walking. Marriott and Movenpick are 30yards away.
