My schedule was a bit tight that I could not really stay at the lounge for too long. The décor of the lounge is modern and fresh. One of the good things about this lounge is that I can order one item from the menu, and they will cook it for me right away. I ordered a fish burger which was tasty.
The only reason why I picked this hotel was because Accor ran a promo in UK. Most of the hotels cost only £40 – £80, and this Novotel cost £60 per night, which I thought was really a good deal, when it compares with Hiltons. However, this hotel does not live up with the standard 4 star hotel. I have tried few Accor hotels and most of them have lots of flaws. I really won’t stay at any Accor hotel unless the price really attracts my attention.
It was New Year’s Eve and all hotels rates were sky-high in London. Therefore, it was a great way to use my final free night certificate offered by IHG (Into the Night promo). There were many high-end hotels that I wanted to choose, such as Intercontinental, but most of the hotels won’t allow me to use the certificate. I didn’t want to waste the certificate on a Holiday Inn Express, otherwise it would be a stupid mistake.
One of the good things for having a Priority Pass card is that it grants you access to the airport lounges, if you pick carefully from their list, you may enter some premium lounges in the globe.
I spent few days in Geneva and booked the Club Room at Crowne Plaza Geneva. The hotel is located a little bit out of town and it requires 20 mins of bus ride from downtown to the hotel. However, this hotel is very near the airport. Basically, all of the hotels in Geneva would provide a free bus/train ticket for the guests to ride in the area. Therefore, it is not really a big problem to stay in a hotel that is not centrally located to the main area. Also, the hotel provides free shuttle bus to and from the airport in every 20 mins, so it is very flexible for those who want to get to the airport as fast as possible.
