DSCN8378

It’s rainy season again. And while others are just staying at home, my friends and I went out for a staycation because “Walang makakapigil samin!” haha. No, seriously we will be watching a musical in Resorts World so we decided to spend the weekend in one of the prime hotels in Manila, no other than The Marriott Hotel.

I arrived late in the afternoon, I cant contact my friend who’s already in our assigned room. I did not know our room number so I went to the lobby and asked for assistance. I was immediately attended to by the receptionist, requested for my ID and handed me my keycard. Checking in was very quick.

One of the interesting things about the hotel is that you can only use the elevator with your room keycard. It is a security feature so non-guest cannot just easily intrude or harm the checked-in guests. Upon exiting the elevator, I was impressed with the hallway. The entire floor was carpeted, the walls are adorned with beautiful artworks like paintings and scupltures.

Our Deluxe Room

We got a Deluxe Room at the 6th floor. I saw my friend near the desk comfortly seated on the ergonomic chair while doing some of his online works. Our room is big, enough for us to easily walk around. I like the big glass window that gives us sufficient and natural light.

I love the ottoman and the side table where I sat to read my book. Aside from watching may favorite TV shows, their flatscreen TV has a special feature where they will flash a message to the guest (paperless welcome note!) and you can also view your updated hotel bill. That case, you wont be surprised to find out how much your bill is when you check out.

Aside from the furnitures, I love the lighting of the room. The warm lighting successfully achieved the homey feeling unlike other hotels that I already stayed in.

Our bathroom looks really nice and clean. My smile went up to my ears when I saw the bath tub. The bathroom also has complete set of toiletries, towels and robes.

The Marriott Cafe

We had our dinner at Marriott Cafe located in the lobby . The interior of the restaurant is sophisticated yet calm. I like how they used different styles of tables and chairs but still perfectly complimenting each other. But what is ambience if the food is not good right? Well, Marriott Cafe will not disappoint your palate. In fact, they have a great selection of menus that will suit your cravings. They have different kinds of fresh salad, bread, meat and seafood. I cant select what’s my favorite so I will make a separate feature about the Marriott Cafe in the next coming days. I will post more pictures too. Watch out for that.

After dinner, we had the chance to watch the musical “Bituing Walang Ningning” at the Newport Performing Arts Theater. It is based from the classic movie with the same title. The musical features, Cris Villonco, Monica Cuenco and Mark Bautista.

The next morning, my friends and I enjoyed swimming at the outdoor pool. I was so thankful that we have our own locker to keep and secure our stuff. Their dressing room is so clean and well-maintained.

The friendly staff was so cautious in mapping the floor from time to time to avoid any accident of being slip, since people come and go wet from swimming. The bathrooms were all occupied so I tried their jacuzzi while waiting.

The Executive Lounge

This is my favorite place in the hotel. The Executive Lounge is perfect for small meetings or if you want to have a peaceful and more private conversation. They also serve great menus here. It also has a perfect view of the Villamor Golf Course. This is where we spent the time before we went home.

Our stay in Marriott Hotel was short but unforgettable. It is not often that I feel this kind treatment as compared to other hotels I stayed in before. The hotel is within the posh Resorts World and is just located across the airport. They also offer free shuttle services in selected pick up points. Doubt about my experience? Then go and experience it for yourself. Check rates here.
