After staying at the other hotel for 4 nights, I knew that a change was in order. I called AX Platinum Travel and booked by final night at Mandarin Oriental. Wow, what a difference!
The deluxe room for a Sunday night was at $420 which I upgraded to a suite for an extra $125.
This included an $85 dinner credit for two and up to $68 for breakfast. This deal was also available on a standard room at $179.
So, assuming use of the allowances, the net standard room would have been a cost of $26.
This AX package, which included a room upgrade if available at check in and a 4 pm late check out can't be improved. This was especially appreciated since my flight was at 4 pm and the check out time for the others is 12 pm.
Why stay anywhere else?
