Ambassador check-in was completed in the lobby, there doesn’t seem to be a VIP check-in or any specialist Ambassador/Priority Club staff here in Sydney. Our Ambassador gift was a box of 3 chocolates, in Bangkok & Hanoi, we received a cuddly bear & an die-cast rickshaw model respectively, c’mon Sydney give out some fun stuff will you? Our complimentary fruit plate was missing both days. On a busy Saturday, our room upgrade was not to a bigger room but a room with a slightly better view. Surprisingly no welcome letter.
The view of the harbour from the Club Lounge here is pretty impressive, any visitor from out of town will experience a picture postcard view. Sydney Harbour by day from such a height is magical, Sydney by night, beautiful. Evening drinks was relaxed with mood lighting & a great atmosphere, drinks were served by staff who offered a good selection of beers, wines, spirits & had a number of cocktails on menu. The only disappointment was food & canapés were limited to 1 tasting plate per person, unlike other InterC’s it is usually a large selection of canapés, cakes, cheese, sandwiches, dips & deserts. The 4 canapés were ok but they weren’t enough to carry through the 2 hour evening drinks service, perhaps this can be reviewed to include a self-service?
The sum of all the small annoyances were hardly worth spoiling a great occasion, an unforgettable view with a beautiful woman.
