I am looking forward to visiting Budapest next month and staying at the Párisi Udvar Hotel for three nights.
This stunning and opulent Art Nouveau hotel is part of the World of Hyatt. As a World of Hyatt Globalist member, I am entitled to use the hotel’s club lounge, which includes not only breakfast but also hot and cold appetizers and cocktails in the evening. I was previously advised that as a Globalist, I could choose to have breakfast in the lounge or in the hotel restaurant.
However, today I received an email notifying me that the club lounge is permanently shutting down in 5 days:
Warm greetings from Párisi Udvar Hotel Budapest!
Thank you for choosing our hotel for your upcoming stay in the Hungarian capital.
We would like to kindly inform you that our Club Lounge area will be permanently closed as of March 9, 2020 due to operational reasons.
As a Globalist, we wish to honor your loyalty with a complimentary breakfast offer. You will be able to consume a combination of an extensive buffet breakfast with hot food and drinks as well as á la carte items. Our breakfast restaurant is located on the lobby level in the middle of the Passage, where we serve breakfast daily between 06:30 and 10:30.
While breakfast in a hotel restaurant is typically better than breakfast in a lounge, I always had the option to eat breakfast either in the restaurant or the lounge. However, I was really looking forward to visiting and enjoying the food and beverage offerings in the evening. This is a valuable amenity that was initially promised that has now been removed. What do you think?
