The accommodating staff took me through a pleasant personalized check-in at the reception area of the Executive Nikko Club Lounge on the 26th floor. In a matter of minutes, I was whisked to my room high above the city which provided a very warm welcome with fresh fruits, cookies and delicious chocolates.

The hospitable manager, Keegan introduced the ‘Lime Margarita’ and ‘Long Island Tea’ during my visit to the lounge in the evening with my friends. I truly enjoyed the Lime Margarita served in a salt-rimmed glass. My friend, Taufulou had the Long Island Tea while Coco chose the hot Cappuccino. We lingered over the drinks and canapes before adjoining to the Serena Brasserie for the Mexican Buffet.
