    I think so, the e-upgrades usually offer it around $50 per night. It feels like I’d be paying for a breakfast I’m getting free anyway though.

    I am just plat (and plan to get AMB). If I pay for club room upgrade, would I have the option to have breakfast at either lounge or the main restaurant?

    Kimpton Paris on amb – Arrived late, both rooms upgraded to junior suite (recognised diamond, returning customer and secret pw). Breakfast comped for both rooms and champagne was sent to both rooms shortly after check in.

    Most ICs would offer you the ability to take breakfast in the main restaurant I think. The one brand that normally doesn’t is Marriott – if you get lounge access via status you have to take breakfast in the lounge (but it’s property dependent, as JWN in SIN allowed me to take breakfast in the main restaurant)

    IC Boston. Hotel seems busy as a wedding going on today. As Diamond ambassador paid stay upgraded to better view on 5th floor (not sea view). Decent sized room and apparently no suites were available. Breakfast offered immediately or 600 points. Receptionist laughed at the difference in value for a 5 night stay… was not given club access which I received the last time for a 2 week stay in December 2019. I mentioned that at check in and receptionist said that was for royal ambassadors. Spoke to manager and granted it. So worth asking.

    You’d need pretty strong binoculars to see the sea from there!
