I stayed on business after two enforced stays at Channel View. They had a "special rate" for Nigeria's 50th anniversary celebrations; the flat rate was comparable to inferior places in the rest of the town, but once you added the "plus plus" on top, it hiked it up considerably.
reverting to the normal rate (adding the "plus plus" of course) put it out of my expenses range, but it was by far the best place I've stayed in Nigeria: intelligent staff, scrupulously clean, decent plumbing (though when I asked for a plug for the bath, a man mysteriously turned up at my door with a ladder. Never did get my much-needed bath). I didn't eat there as it was horribly expensive, though I had a shoddy breakfast one morning of a dry croissant with a mysterious salty brown filling that even the staff couldn't identify.
I'd definitely stay there again if it's on expenses, couldn't afford to pay myself.
