      Forum Upgrade March 2017 - Hints, Tips and Complaints   19/03/17

      The forum is now up again and running after the upgrade - there is still the task of searching for updated versions of apps and plugins from the old version and then download, upgrade and configure    Please note any issues outside of this to this thread here where the Site Admins can then work out what needs to be reinstated when possible.         Thank you for your patience and hopefully we can provide updates on progress

  1. No joiner fee, girl friendly. Great hotel, but very pricy considering the other options. Stay there every year since I have not found a better mongering venue to use my points. I travel a LOT on business. If I had to pay out of pocket there are much better deals, but if you have IHG points to use, this is worth considering. Review with pictures from last visit. http://www.pattaya-addicts.com/forum/index.php?/topic/293385-Holiday-Inn-Pattaya---King-Suite Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk
  2. In this case I was not given the executive lounge access but did get breakfast because I was using my points for the room. That is why I was surprised I even got this type of upgrade. All on points. But for the last 4 years I have been a paying customer using about half point and half payment. Still not a bad hotel value. Another thing that happened was the first night I was not in this room. I was cashing in my annual free room you get with the IHG Credit Card and had asked not to be put in the executive tower. The executive tower is further back from the cost line so the views are not as nice. Well they messed the request up and I think they may have been trying to compensate for not meeting my request the first night. Another possibility is this room was empty since it was a busy Songkran weekend and all the other rooms were solidly booked. So I get the expensive unused room since I was not a paying customer anyway, and they could not give me a simple room that was already sold out. Sometime these things happen. There is no bad room in this hotel though. Some are just better than others and the older building actually has the nicer views. Having lounge access in Pattaya though kind of what for since there are so many low cost drink and dine options in town. But you are right, you usually get executive status and an annual free room with the card and well worth the annual fee. Supplement that with stays at the IHG hotels when on business travel and the perks add up. Using the perks at this property has been really a good deal.
  3. The real pretty girls could care less. Yes there was a Wow factor, but in the end these girls are money machines and just want to get paid and go. The one girl that stayed was one of those beer bar conquests. There is always a night or two I just hang out late, drink, play pool and inevitably some girl latches on (I go wit u). The next morning she took forever to wake up and when she did took forever to leave. But yeah, I enjoyed the room!
  4. Been visiting Pattaya using the IHG points for about 4 years now. This year I was pleasantly surprised to been provided an upgrade like I never imagined. I am a Platinum Member, travel on business quite a bit. Anyway sorry to bore you with lots of pictures, and frankly the girls may like it but they really don't care. But for those who may wonder what the room look like. Here you go. Kudos to the IHG Group, the Holiday Inn Pattaya has treated me very very well for many years. I could cash in my Hilton Points but prefer not to from what I have heard and the point cost is very high at the Hilton. Stayed at the Marriott a few time and no comparison, though the location is great. The Holiday Inn is a baht bus or motor bike ride away from just about anything.
  5. If you get the Marriot Visa or Mastercard you get a free night a year, which can be used at Pattaya. The card has an $85 usd annual fee but entitles the user to accumulate point as a rewards member. All good if you spend a lot time on international travel and use the chain. <br />The IHG has a similar arrangement and the free nights can be used at the Holiday Inn. The card annual fee is $35.<br />Hilton Pattaya probably has similar offers, but the Hilton card I have did not give free nights.<br />Last time I cashed in a few free nights at the Holiday<br />Inn and was able to upgrade to one of the most amazing views of the coast. The cost for the upgrade was relatively half of what the room would cost and you get all the bennies of platnimum. <br /><br />I guess the point I'm trying to make is that these big chain hotel may be great for the punter that has a few membership benefits and especially has reached platinum, diamond, or executive status with the chain. Then the value to amenities starts to even out. But at face value there are really competitive locations to choose, but one cant go wrong in these big chain locations. The girls actually don't give a crap. It is more for personal satisfaction.
