We had fresh flowers in the bathroom, bathrobes and a hairdryer. Also had seperate shampoo and bubble bath, not the all in one stuff we've had in the other hotels, bath and face size soaps.did you get any extra perks in your room at all?
When I was there in June, we stayed on Admiral's Floor. We did have chocolates on the pillows each evening after turn-down service. We didn't get any cuddly toys for the kids, though. I vaguely remember reading about that before going, and was vaguely surprised when we didn't see anything. But I didn't give it much thought.Belgian chocolates in the room and cuddly toys on the kids beds,
People don't seam to be mentioning this any more
We're Back! Thanks to Rob and everyone who gave advice - it all helped towrds a fabulous trip. The NBC is a lovely hotel, but the facilities are not enough to cope with all the people staying there!
Luckily we were on the Admirals Floor, in one of the rooms that fits 6 people, so we have our breakfast delivered to us. This am, I came down especially early for a last sortie with my children to be faced with a flood of people heading to the Convention Center for their breakfast as the 2 hotel restaurants could not cope with the flow of people at 8.30 am !
On our first night, I booked mid pm for a table in the hotel for dinner to be told it was fully booked. However, the bookings staff directed us towards the Sequoia, where we had a meal in the Hunters Lodge. From then on, dinner was booked 24 hours in advance, I can tell you !
In all, the staff were wonderful - full of useful suggestions and nothing was too much trouble. It did seem to me however that being organised, reading Simon's book from cover to cover several times, AND SPEAKING FRENCH really helped too......
Will report on other findings - must get all that washing done first....
