Crowne Plaza Manila Hotel Staycation

 
What to do on a long holiday-weekend?
 
Yup, you got that one right: A family staycation at one of Ortigas premier hotels~
 
We booked ourselves a corner Deluxe Room.
 
The room is spacious (about 50sqm.), enough for my boys to run and play around. 
You don't get this much space abroad. 
 
The room has a floor to ceiling window that overlooks the hotel pool (which it shares with Holiday Inn hotel next door). 
 
 


 
My son, found his spot.  He claimed this comfortable side chair with foot stool for watching TV.
 
There is a 42inches LED TV hooked to good selection of local and international channels (obviously ours was tuned to the Nick and Disney channel the entire time).
 
  

 
Complimentary coffee and tea

 
 
Huge bathroom, with a separate shower and bath tub.



 
 
 
 
Yes, there is bidet
 
 
 
 
 Basic toiletries...
 
 Bath robe and a safety box, completes the room.
 

 
 
VERDICT
  • Location is A+. We love that it has a direct access to Robinson's Galleria mall.   
  • Service is great as expected of an IHG hotel. Staff are amiable and efficient.
  • Our room is spic-and-span. However, age is catching up and would soon require renovation and probably some upgrade,  I remember the last time we've stayed at his hotel and it was immaculately clean, smells new too.
  • Buffet breakfast is good with a wide selection of food, but fails in comparison to our previous visit. 
  • Overall it is a nice family hotel.  We would love to come stay again, just by its location alone.

  2. Looks like you had a great time! We stayed there once for a Rotary event, I agree, A+ ang location. It wasn't hard to buy stuff we need since it's directly linked with Robinson's.

    1. Oh it is really a huge room. It could fit 7 running kids and with space left for a watchful mama :P. It was cozy too and the IHG brand really spells good service.

      If you are looking for a place for staycation I also recommend MarcoPolo Hotel. http://juvyann19.blogspot.com/2015/04/luxurious-family-staycation-at-marco.html

    1. It was nice. But what I really like about Crowne Plaza is its direct access to Galeria. I can do my shopping, while the boys stays in the hotel to chillax.
