Does anyone have experience with this? I'm specifically looking for what options may be available for IC properties since I have no Ambassador status. However anyone who can also advise on similar experiences at other Priority Club properties should chime in too. I'm just a lowly Platinum which means nada at IC's, I'm aware. However I intend to burn off a number of points for several nights in Wellington - either full value or points + cash - and wondered if paying at check-in is ever possible to obtain access to the lounge? If it's reasonably priced I might do it. Otherwise I'll likely just go for the loungeless Holiday Inn Wellington and hope for free breakfasts and whatever upgrades they may want to give this Plat.
