Sorry if this has been covered, what's the best upgrade you have had on a rewards night?


Staying at IC Adelaide again, Rewards night, been upgraded to a suite plus club access. I'm
happy. I have had about 10 nights this year so far thou.

Love to hear of some great experiences, along your journey in life

As an RA at the IC Adelaide I can only get either club or a suite on a paid night let alone both on a rewards night! You have done well!

That's the first time, had more than a single category upgrade. Must admit I was pleasantly surprised cause it wasn't
showing on account before arrival

Same goes for me - stayed there plenty of times and have never had both club access and suite at the same time.

Hi citeck
I also stay there quite regularly, Just a tip for your next paid stay,
book a King Riverview Club Intercontinental you will receive Intercontinental
Suite with club access. I often use the PP Newsletter or bogo certificate
when booking,don't have a problem with availability on most occasions.
(Have a stay in August, that has been upgraded to a suite)

Hope that helps

Thanks - I'll give that a try next time round.

Doesn't happen.

RA's don't get a two level upgrade from River View Club Intercontinental Room to Executive Suite. They will give you a suite or club access. If you've booked a club room they'll give you a suite but only an Intercontinental Suite (floors 5 to 12?). If an RA wants to get an Executive Suite upgrade you need to book an Intercontinental Suite and ask for club access to be added (there is no option to book such a thing on the ihg site) and they will give you a one level upgrade to Executive Suite. RA's are treated the same as an Ambassador's in this regard.

All depends on room occupancy, I have booked a river view non club and been given an Exec suite multiple times as RA, with club access.

Fair point. I'd still suggest there would be a fairly minimal chance of getting such an upgrade confirmed prior to arrival though.

I've haven't received anything beyond what is expected since about mid 2013 when some of their policies and room offerings (i.e IC suite used to come with club access etc) . Guess they don't like me much haha
 
Trying to access your favourite Australian websites when overseas only to discover they have been geo-blocked? Concerned about your internet privacy especially when using unsecured wifi? NordVPN will solve both these common problems.

Hey dontgoaway

Sorry I though a royal ambassador received a double upgrade. By the way Adelaide Inter is very generous with upgrades, I'm not saying you always get one, but yes they certainly look after their regulars.
