Deluxe room InterContinental Madrid

Early December, I received a disappointing downgrade letter from the InterContinental Ambassador service.  As of February 2012, I would no longer be an InterContinental Royal Ambassador.  With 30 paid nights in 2011, I did not qualify for extension of my RA membership.  A pity my RA experiences in the past 8 months were limited to InterContinental BangkokInterContinental London Park Lane and InterContinental Coex Seoul (the latter being so disappointing I lacked enthusiasms to write blog post)  Anyway, I’m very grateful to the twitter follower who offered me his Royal Ambassador Referral Certificate.

My last stay as Royal Ambassador was a weekend stay mid January at InterContinental Madrid.  While the hotel interior didn’t match my taste and the upgrade was limited to a Deluxe room, I couldn’t complain as this was a €99 two-night stay thanks to IHG Best Price Guarantee!

I’m going to miss the Royal Ambassador perks: free internet, complimentary minibar, 8am early check-in, 2-level upgrade, club lounge access with complimentary breakfast, cocktails, etc…  Fortunately IHG offers RA downgrades a soft landing to standard Ambassador membership for one year ($150 value)

  2. Oooh. That lounge is way too busy. My gf would have a fit if she saw it. But the room looks nice, and I’m sure the food was delicious. I remember plenty of good food from Madrid last August. Thanks for sharing!
