    Sydney Intercontinental State Suite

    Seems like an expired AMB Cert. will not be accepted ( after making some inquiries … ) I won't be risking it. I'll be renewing in April anyway ( given my booking is for June ). But won't be waisting the April expiry … I'll be doing a weekend before expiry.

    I recon you are 100% correct on this ( after asking a few questions, and looking up the T&Cs ).

    Not good enough

    The origin of this story reminds me of the 'treatment' I got, when I posted my perceived 'failure of service' as a F pax on QF last year. Too many over-entitled critics on this forum to risk putting issues on these pages anymore ...

    Same situation with me. I've started 'paying off' an AMB Cert. weekend in the Royal Opera Suite at IC Sydney. My online booking shows reservation attracts one night tariff, with two night stay. Cert. Expiry May 2020. Booking June 2020.

    Sydney Intercontinental State Suite

    Just checked the IC Sydney webpage. " …. formerly known as the State Suite". Geez, I was hoping it was the 'new name' for The Australia Suite !!!

    UPGRADED ON POINT STAY ! PLUS WELCOME BONUS

    Stayed there last week. Was too cheap to waist points on … Paid $122. INCLUDED breakfast as IHG Club Member. We already had a few drinks by 'dinner time', so ordered a hundred bucks of food to the room. All items arrived well presented and at right temperature. However, despite the 'upgraded'...
