I've stayed at this hotel so many times and really enjoyed it. Due to I'm a Platina Ambassador of the IC group I always get an upgrade to the Club Floor.
Last week when I stayed at the hotel i was as usual upgraded to a nice club room.
When I cheked out, I was told that my upgrade only was for the room and not the benefits normally included to a club room. Therefore I had to pay RMB 120/day for internet.
I told them that for all my stays at this hotel I never had to pay internet. The reply was that this has been changed since 26/6 -2011. I probably stayed at the hotel at least 6-7 times since then and never ever have to pay for internet and that I thought the charge was absolutely at a silly level. After a small discussion I paid the RMB 240 and asked them to cancel my future two reseravtions which the staff did without any notice.
All in all I think that travelling for business requires a hotel with an internet connection without charge. This is as common as a bed today. A charge of RMB 120 for internet per day is a simple way to tell the guests to find another hotel and I'm not feeling not very welcome to this hotel as a Platina member.
The advice to the hotel is to change this as soon as possible so that frequent guests feels welcome to the hotel again. Shape up!!
