I was wondering if I can get some opinions on a hotel for a special occasion, 2 nights in August.
We are looking for a luxury hotel with great service and facilities. We prefer a modern hotel but we are open to suggestions. Like everyone we want to feel pampered and special I guess. Would love a hotel with a warm Jacuzzi in the pool area too if possible.
Budget isn't really an issue, but we are trying to keep it to $1000-1200 for the two nights (Friday and Saturday).
We have a flexible booking at Crown for the Premier Room (same as entry level room but on a higher floor) but it's come in at $1350 for our dates. We love Crown but feel it's a bit pricey for a room only rate (no club access or breaky).
I am now leaning towards the Intercontinental. We can get a King Club Junior Suite, with club access, breaky, afternoon tea etc for approx. $1000 for the two nights. It looks great, but I am wondering if I am missing something? The rate seems very good?
Other options are the Langham (which is probably amazing but looking a bit dated) or the Sofitel.
Any opinions? Is there somewhere else we can consider?
