Hotel Review: Four Points Sheraton Bogotá
I was headed to Bogotá for a friends wedding and much of the party was staying at the Four Points. It's usually my least favorite SPG brand, though I decided to give it a go simply due to convenience. Cash rates on my corporate rate were coming in around $65 USD with tax, so I decided to pay out of pocket instead of burning 3,000 points/night.
Check-in: I had hopped off a red-eye and arrived at the hotel around 8 AM. I had reached out the hotel ahead of time and luckily enough my room was ready. I was really impressed by the lobby which had cool local art and beaming with natural light. The check-in agent outlined breakfast was to be served in the lobby restaurant and was included in the rate. The only platinum amenity was 250 SPG points and after about 5 minutes I was on my way to the room.
The Room: I was staying in a corner room on the 7th floor which had wrap around windows. The room wasn't massive, but nicely appointed and much more comfortable then many other Four Points.
The bed was large, the room was pretty clean and the furniture seemed relatively modern and in good shape. The bathroom had a large spacious shower with pretty good pressure.
In the evenings there was a turndown service and small chocolates placed next to the bed which was an impressive touch. Overall the room was pretty cozy and the perfect place to crash after a long day.
The Property: The lobby was definitely the nicest I've seen at a Four Points, and felt like an upscale hotel.
Security guards manned the entrances after 9 PM most nights and asked for ID along with a hotel to enter the hotel. In addition, guests from other floor had to be escorted to rooms on different floors which was slightly annoying but understandable.
I missed the breakfast buffet each morning I was at the hotel, but heard it was pretty good. The gym was on the top floor and quite spacious. I visited twice in the evenings and was the only person there.
The area around hotel is really pleasant and upscale. There are plenty of restaurants and shops a stones throw from the hotel, and the famous 93rd St Park is only about two blocks away as well.
The Service: I didn't have many interactions with the staff, but they were always warm and welcoming. The lady who checked me in remembered my name and made sure to say hello throughout my stay.
Tsunami Says: I enjoyed my stay at the Four Points in Bogotá more than I ever thought I would. The hotel has great location, is comfortable and relatively affordable on both points and cash rates.
