Good condition in room except for the toilet.

Service staff were excellent. Breakfast crew and spread were good. The room is recently renovated. The toilet is left to be desired though. Fixtures in the toilet were old and flooring is slippery when wet. If they upgraded the toilet conditions, the room would be excellent.

Should renovate bathroom

I understand that Thistle has renovated most of the rooms and public area. However, the condition of bathroom was poor. I felt uncomfortable while showering. Please change the showerhead. Replace it with modern and portable showerhead. Also, the food served at Club Lounge was poor. Tasteless, very few choices. Please visit Amari JB and see what they serve for club room guests.
