Being the frequent flyer that I am, I was expecting a little from all the hotels and did they surprise me or not?
I spent my birthday at 2 properties.
ITC Rajputana went out of their way. Got me a cake and some flowers. It was completely delightful stay and would definitely head there again.
Le Meridian Jaipur
They went away and beyond on what I could have thought. They completely decorated room for me. Entire staff gathered around me for cake cutting and it was a very memorable day for me.
What did SPG as group did for me?
Nothing. Not even greeting from them.
They offered me 10% discount coupon month in advance that could be used to book a flight in my birthday once.
I got a greeting from them and nothing else.
