Is Executive Club level worth it? It depends. The first thing to do if you are considering it is to join the hotel’s customer loyalty program. There are certain benefits such as free internet, preferred check-in, late check-out and often “member-only” rates. One of the very best Executive Club Levels I have had the pleasure to enjoyed have been at the Pan Pacific’s Pacific Club and Park Royal’s Orchid Club. Their Executive Club level is well worth it extra cost to upgrade.
One of my favorite hotels is the The ParkRoyal in Saigon. It is a great place to stay – actually it is a wonderful place to stay. It is close to the airport with a free airport transportation and free shuttle to city center and E-Town. The atrium-style hotel is warm and welcoming. The staff will happily meet any reasonable demand. The Garden Brasserie restaurant has an extensive array of choices and Lotus Bar is a great place to meet friends and enjoy a libation. The breakfast buffet at the Garden Brasserie is unsurpassable with selections to please any palate. There is a lovely pool and excellent spa making for an even more relaxing stay.
Savvy travelers will want to upgrade to the ParkRoyal’s Orchid Club Level. It is well worth it. But first, make sure one should become a member of Discovery Global Hotel Alliance loyalty program for even greater savings when booking a room at ParkRoyal’s Orchid Club. The benefits are outstanding and extensive.
Included in the Orchid Club package is complimentary airport transfer, welcome fruit, daily newspaper, and Internet. Guests may choose to have breakfast in the Orchid Club Lounge where one can pick from a menu or the Garden Brasserie where the buffet choices are amazing. Need a midday break? Tea time is from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. In the evening there are cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. A great place to unwind. The Orchid Club package offers benefits seldom found at hotels: significant discounts at the Garden Brasserie, Business Center, and St. Gregory Spa. And, four pieces of laundry per day! Amazing. As one might expect with club level there are upgraded amenities, priority check-in, and late checkout. Without a doubt an amazing value.
