Foyer & Checkin
The foyer was massive with some sofas unfold on the appropriate and a few airplane design on the left. Within the night you might see guys taking part in some music. It’s a vigorous place to be.
Examine-in was fast and I used to be welcomed with a drink. I requested for an improve with lounge entry and the identical was granted (due to Gold Elite standing) with the room being positioned in the identical flooring because the lounge.
The upgraded room seems to be good but it surely wasn’t large enough to name it an improve as I didn’t really feel it spacious. But, it felt fairly premium. Listed here are a few of the snaps,
