My partner and I have been planning a split stay at Pop and WL for this coming week for a while. I was looking at rooms last night and found a Passholder Discount for AKL for the first part of our trip, so I secretly changed our stay from Pop to AKL.
It actually works out perfectly in so many ways, but now I have to figure out how to keep it a secret and how to do the reveal. We have reservations at Jiko our first night which were already planned. I’d like to go to dinner and then somehow do the surprise and let him know that’s where we are actually staying.
My idea was to slip the valet a note to ask him/her to discretely take our bags to bell services after we go inside, then at the beginning of dinner excuse myself and go check in at the front desk. Then, after dinner, I will say that I want to explore AKL a bit and then magically open our room door with my magic band.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to make this work or make it even better?? I’m scared that the guard at the gate might mention something about checking in and also concerned that the valet might not know what to do with my note.
Is there any way I can coordinate this with AKL staff?
Thanks for any ideas!!
