Stayed here on two occasions in December and January 2013. Both times we were upgraded to a nice suite. Loved the room, the location and the common areas.
Some room for improvement:
- Most important: It is impossible to block out all the daylight with the current curtains. They may be trendy, but I have never slept in a hotel room with curtains like this. Please fix this!
- Had to wait forever to get the upgraded room. Yes, I know one should be thankful for the upgrade, but other people were also complaining about the slow housekeeping and that rooms never very ready at check in time. Hey, we are paying to get into a room from a certain time at the day!
- Had to ask slash beg for the spg platinum upgrade. How hard can it be to do this automatically as per the spg rules?
- starwood platinum continental breakfast was served at the bar area (by sale) and it was not possible to get all the items one are entitled to per the spg rules using the amount of breakfast credit you get. A violation of the spg rules that a lof of pepole has mentioned on various social media sites, but the hotel does not seem to care. Strange how this can be so difficult, as it says spesifically on the printed standard spg platinum breakfast card which items that AT LEAST should be included.
