Hotel Room Review: Marco Polo Hotel Ortigas

 I celebrated a special family gathering at Marco Polo Ortigas recently and stayed for two nights at a Premier Suite.

Prior to this stay, I’ve had the opportunity to visit three times, twice to dine at Cucina and once at Cafe Pronto. The attentiveness of the staff made a great impression on me. So did the tastefully decorated check-in lobby at the 24th floor. Other common areas are equally well put-together.

Even more impressive were the rooms. The Premier Room is 51 square meters, with floor to ceiling windows, a king size bed (you can request for 2 doubles instead), a lounge chair, a bench chair at the foot of the bed and a round glass table with two chairs for dining.
The water closet has separate bath and shower areas, lavatory, and double basins so you and your companion can get ready at the same time. So much space!

The room is also equipped with a cute Nespresso machine and three capsules in a variety of flavors.

Even better are the price points. Because we were booked for an event, I got the room at P7,500 net. The most affordable rooms are the superior rooms, which were offered to me at P5,000 net. All rates are inclusive of buffet breakfast for two at Cucina. The buffet spread, both for breakfast and dinner, has a substantial selection of continental and Asian fare that has enough variety yet is manageable and well curated.

We booked a total of four rooms for our family but, as expected, my nieces invaded my room. JM loved soaking in the tub. I had to request for housekeeping service three times to keep my OC self sane. The staff were always obliging.

The banquet services attended to all our needs without any hassle. I expected to be badgered with paperwork and approvals but, to my delight, there was none!

The most trouble I had was figuring out which elevator led to the parking since there was no direct lift from the rooms. But I got the hang of it eventually so it didn't dampen my impression of the hotel.
