I had to go to Abuja again for 3 nights and contemplated a lot where to stay. I spare you the decision process; I booked the Sheraton again, despite having complains when I stayed there end of January. The best deal was a 'romance package' which includes Includes daily breakfast, Chocolates or fruit and sparkling wine at arrival.
Both, the general manager and his deputy wrote me an apologetic email after my last stay and I informed them that I was coming again. Check in was relatively painless and I was upgraded to a club room on the 8th floor. I'm not quite sure what the difference between a club room and a normal room is, it is not size nor standard. It looked like any of the rooms I previously stayed in, except for the fruits, the sparkling wine and the welcome note from the deputy manager.
The good thing is that the hotel is under renovation, which is desperately needed; the bad thing is that the Elephant bar was converted into a meeting room (?) with lots of glass. There is no possibility anymore to have a drink inside (apart from the small bar on the way to the elevator, which I find depressing as the ceiling is very low) or outside (apart from the pool restaurant, far away and not very frequented). I liked the Elephant bar, it was always lively and entertaining to discuss with the fellow guests.
