Holiday Inn & Suites Makati : At the Center of Everything
Not a lot of people are aware that a hotel sits on top of the New Glorietta Mall at Ayala Center in Makati. The Holiday Inn & Suites signage occupies but a narrow portion of the mall facade along Palm Drive, but it's the only one they scrimped on. On everything else, they went big.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Upon arrival, one will be led to the fourth floor where the Front Desk is located. Service is prompt and effortlessly friendly, making one feel right at home.
The rooms are well-appointed, and are fitted with thoughtful touches: free Wi-Fi connection, HDMI- and USB-to-TV plug-and-play outlets, activity kits (crayons and coloring pages) and a cute teddy bear to keep the kids entertained, adjustable bedside reading lights that allow one to read a book in bed without disturbing the others, and a choice of soft or firm pillows to ensure you get a good night's sleep in the soft, king-size bed.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
You will not run out of dining options at the Holiday Inn & Suites with its three dining outlets: Flavors restaurant offers local and international favorites, including a child-friendly menu that encourages the young ones to try different cuisines.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOWADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
If you prefer to keep to your diet, there's Citron Lobby Bar which is unique in the sense that its menu is prepared according to blood type compatibility, without compromising your taste or satisfaction. Lastly, the Oz Bar is where mom and dad could escape to once the kids are asleep for a few drinks al fresco or a quick dip in the ample-sized pool. If you're still craving for a particular type of food, the hotel is literally a few steps away from the Glorietta Mall.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
There is much to be said about the facilities and amenities of the facilities of Holiday Inn & Suites, but what one remembers upon leaving its premises is how good its people made you feel: the personalized service (the housekeeping personnel on the floor greets guests by name), the warm hospitality, and the staff's genuine desire to please. "Stay impressed," its slogan says, and indeed we are.
