90K. No doubt.
+1
Although with your spg balance and your limited availability to travel at this point and time. And the fact that it's freaking cold right now if I were you I'd take the room

I just came back from a weekend away at sheraton suites and I are on the invoice that I'm being charged $100 extra. It says the reason next to it is party room ?!? Anyone have any experience with this. We did have kids with us but we did not trash the room and we even cleaned up before we left?!

And...?

Hotel: IC HKG
Year of incident: 2013
Status at time of incident: Platinum in IHG, no status w/ IC
Incident: Fire alarm went off for 10 minutes b/f 8am after we had arrived w/ kids late the night before. Turned out to be a technical issue, but it got e/o out of bed and dressed.
Compensation: 20k IHG (we had 2 rooms. One booked w/ free night cert, 1 with 45k points). They initially offered an upgrade for our next visit, but I said I didn't know when I'd return.

Great hotel by the way.

After a recent Andaz stay I got the typical survey, I had many negative complaints which I wrote down,should I call up as well, or can I expect something or a call back based on the complaints in the survey?
