Returned from here a couple of days ago and wondered if anyone else had their AI bands removed when they checked out. We were told it was hotel policy, but met loads of people who had kept theirs on right up to transfer. We were told that we could get drinks from the bar but we would have to pay. Choice - pay up/go thirsty.
Have e-mailed the corporate site but as yet no reply. If there is a rule like this like in many lower star hotels then fair enough so long as it applies to everyone.
