The other month, Sebastian wrote (read more here here) about lack of benefits letters at some hotels.
So, the Fabulous Fridays piece this week is about the Club and Platinum benefits at the Plaza Athenee hotels in Bangkok (Starwood affiliated) that are well spelled out.
You can access Plaza Athenee’s website here.
Here are the benefits:
Like Sebastian, I have never understood why some hotels prefer to be vague about the club or elite member benefits they offer. Shouldn’t be too difficult to print out a clear benefits card like the one above that they give you at the Plaza Athenee.
Personally, I really value the laundry benefit that many hotels, although not all, offer in the region. If someone likes to have adult beverages, it is great to have this option at the hotel’s F&B outlets as well in addition to the club lounge.
The restaurant breakfast buffet at this hotel is one of the better ones. Well worth the visit if someone has bit time on their hands.
This hotel is in the process of dropping its’ Le Royal Meridien branding and moving under the Luxury Collection (both under Starwood). They have renovated all the rooms and suites. Really nice hotel now. Well worth a stay.
