Not sure I received the upgrade. I should ask the next time. It seems like many lower level 5 star hotels are not service oriented that well. OK but not at the 5 star level. You can use the bikes but I had to twist some arms to use them at night to get to Georgetown. Very nice to check out this town on a bike. Breakfast is OK for 5 star. Room is designed well. Pool area is well designed as well. Free mini bar.
