Should renovate bathroom

I understand that Thistle has renovated most of the rooms and public area. However, the condition of bathroom was poor. I felt uncomfortable while showering. Please change the showerhead. Replace it with modern and portable showerhead. Also, the food served at Club Lounge was poor. Tasteless, very few choices. Please visit Amari JB and see what they serve for club room guests.
