    I have got the best rooms and service at IHG this year on several PBs

    When they last announced PBs, we already had a booking at HI Downtown - Kuwait and being as I earn most of my points from business trips, it was only fair that I spent 15,000 points and saved my employer the bill for 3 nights.

    On PBs I like to give the hotel a bit of revenue, so I called about airport pick-up and they sent a private car + driver (30 minutes outside downtown) and told me it was complimentary.

    When I asked about buying breakfast, the receptionist told me it was not included but as a valuable Platinum member, the hotel would comp breakfast (nice spread too)

    Some HIs in the Mideast have lavish Presidential and Business Suites that are not purchased by the average HI customer and several times I have been upgraded to a nice suite.

    This suite had a kitchen, two bathrooms, 8 person dining room, large living room and big entry hall :eek:

    I hadn't had an experience on a suite upgrade using PB, though i did have one in Singapore Holiday Inn Atrium, 25000 points each for 2 standard room, upgraded to 2 suites by their Guest Experience Manager as i was celebrating 2 belated birthdays, so she kindly upgraded us...:D

    I haven't been upgraded to a suite as a Gold of course but I've got some decent service on PB nights. :)

    I'm somewhat disappointed at this round. :(

    Only 1 IC and that's in Vietnam.
