Instead of paying FJD920 (€394, $514) per night for a Garden View room, I used the Priority Club Points + Cash trick to book my 4 night stay at InterContinental Fiji.  At 30K points per night, this resulted in $210 (€161) room rate.  Upon arrival at 11am I was told my Garden View room wasn’t ready yet, despite my Royal Ambassador status which guarantees 8am check-in, and no room upgrade would be given as I was staying on points.  When inquiring about my other Royal Ambassador benefits, the front desk agent responded he wasn’t sure and had to check.  As my Garden View room would only be ready by 2pm, I was suggested to wait at the Kama Lounge.  The bartender provided me with the cocktail menu and offered me a complementary drink to ease the wait.  After 15 minutes, the bartender still hadn’t returned to take my order so I asked him what was going on.  He told me his supervisor had informed him the complimentary drinks policy had changed and I would actually have to pay for my drink.  My stay at IC Fiji was off to a bad start… room wouldn’t be upgraded, front desk didn’t know if RA benefits applied or not (previous IC Fiji trip reports suggested they did including room upgrades) and a complimentary drink had to be paid for.  In this kind of situations I turn to Twitter to express my malcontent, which in many cases results in a satisfying solution.  I tweeted @IHGCare and @InterConFiji  and expressed my frustration.  Soon after, I was informed my Beachfront View room was ready, courtesy of the InterContinental Fiji marketing department.  For the Royal Ambassador benefits, local management confirmed they didn’t apply on point stays as per IHG Ambassador T&C.
