Just wanted to provide a really quick update without getting into too much detail (after all, need to keep some of the juicy stuff for the trip report). Basically went to bed at around 2:30AM last night after strolling the streets of Hong Kong between 11:30PM and 1AM and then watching a funny movie in the hotel (after all, we have to fully take advantage of RA benefits). I woke up this morning at 6:30AM, not surprisingly. We saw a lot of the sights this morning, and spent a good five hours walking around. In a bit we’re leaving for Macau for a day, after which we’ll be back to Hong Kong.
About the InterContinental Grand Stanford– This place generally gets awful reviews from RA’s for their upgrade policy. Let me just say that we were VERY pleased when we checked in last night, but today are furious. Let’s just say this involves club access (and the expectations they set for us), and I’m certainly no over entitled RA that has ridiculous demands. Hopefully they don’t ask how our stay was at check-out, as I’ll provide them all of the honest feedback they want.
Stay tuned for details on the problems (which I’ll post as soon as I upload the pics of the hotel so that I can do the whole hotel review at once.
