I used points to book this hotel and got a GREAT rate for my $/points value. Something around $0.05 USD / point. Now that is great.
Next question is was the room actually worth the rate listed of $150USD a night? (Taxes inc). IMHO it wasn't. SPG recognition here is excellent and I was upgrade to the suite right next to the Lounge. Yes another thing to note is this Four Points actually does have a lounge.
However the room was very old, so was the "newly opened" lounge. I had a lot of trouble operating the shower. Yes immediately call the operator to find out how to operate the shower when you get there. Not sure if this is the same for deluxe/standard rooms.
Room service was nothing to shout about too. And when I arrived at night 12am there was no doormen to help with luggage. Just one person at the check-in desk. Service however was very good, from room service patiently recommending me food and getting the kitchen to prepare a pasta dish not on the "overnight" menu, to the staff at the lounge and the doormen getting me a taxi the very next day.
I had to extend my stay for a day and chose to move to another SPG property instead. Will I come back again? Yes if most/all the other properties in the vicinity (including this four points) has rates that are through the roof only then will I use points to return.
