While this is overall a very nice hotel, Priority Club members must be forewarned of several things (which, to me, make other hotel programs usable in Athens a better deal -- which, also to me, is quite alarming since you would think they would value their most loyal customers the most and make the platinum membership in their own rewards program competitively advantageous -- bad business prevails I guess): (a) NOT in the best location/neighborhood (busy business street that is not in the City centre), although they provide free shuttle service to the centre and there is a tram nearby; (b) they do NOT provide complimentary room upgrades like other platinum rewards programs; (c) their rewards rooms are their worst rooms (""Superior") and NOT their better rooms ("Deluxe" or "Club"); (d) they do NOT provide complimentary internet (and, in fact, while charging comparable to other upper-end hotels, make it a very expensive add-on); and (e) they do NOT provide any sort of complimentary American or continental breakfast (once again, while charging comparable to other upper-end hotels, this makes it a very expensive add-on). For my money, Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, etc. all treat their most loyal customers better than Intercontinental does, and, therefor, are the places to stay in Athens.
