Executive Club Lounges~

 

Don’t these pictures look lovely?

These are the eptiome of my favorite thing when staying at a hotel. Any hotel. Especially luxury ones.

I don’t technically have words to describe the feeling of having access to a Executive / Club Lounge as an in-house guest. It’s the feeling of belonging to an exclusive circle of esteemed (or so I think) guests who are viewed differrently (in a good way) from the rest of the other maybe 70% in-house guests.

[Hotel Review] The Westin Kuala Lumpur

I needed a quick 3D2N away from work and everything else in my life, so KL was a no-brainer.

I initially wanted to redeem my free night at Grand Millennium Copthorne but their room reservations decided to charge me an additional MYR450 to upgrade from the complimentary deluxe room to an Executive room with club access – when the rate difference shown on their website based on my exact dates is MYR120. When I asked why, they simply said it a special rate. Right, a specially expensive rate.

[Hotel Review] Ibis Styles Sapporo

This was the last night of of guided Hokkaido tour and boy am I glad that we were placed here! Apart from feeling like a whale from the 7days of non stop eating, maximum sleeping, and minimum walking, I managed to collect enough braincells to take pictures and remember sufficient details for a review.

[Hotel Review] The Kiroro, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel

I was part of a 7D6N guided tour in Hokkaido and this was the ‘star’ hotel of the trip – and rightfully so! Beautiful hotel grounds both inside and outside :).

The hotel is under SPG’s portfolio (Sheraton I think?) and I was skeptical that the property would be nice based on some pics I saw online but my worries turned out unfounded after all.

(some pics are from my first visit as pretty much nothing has changed)

This Jan 2016 (sorry slow review I know) is my second visit to the property – the first was when it was still a Traders back in 2014. I was looking for a chillax getaway with mum just for 2D1N and we didnt want a city-ish hotel so I decided to try this again and see what has changed now that its a Jen. I later found out…..nothing much actually haha.

[Hotel Review] Novotel Bangkok Ploechit Sukhumvit

And of course I once again stalked the Accor 40% Super Sale to secure this place at a superb deal for my 4D3N leisure trip with a slightly different agenda, other than shopping and eating hehe.

Prior to arrival, I had emailed the hotel to enquire about the upgrade in accordance with my Accor Gold membership and responses were prompt – was told they will try their best for me.

[Hotel Review] Hotel Jen Orchard Gateway

This hotel has such a youthful vibe, it makes me feel old. I’ve been here countless time to wine and dine, but never to stay. And I have to admit: the only reason why we picked this spot for our 3D2N family staycation was because this is about the only hotel in Singapore whose lounge allows kids below 12 to enter. It was such a painful experience trying to find places who welcome the little tot.
