I booked the Marco Polo for an overnight staycation given that we are celebrating our 5-year anniversary.
The Marco Polo Ortigas gave us a 5-star experience. The service was pleasant and accommodating.
The room was sufficiently big. We had TONS of pillows!
I booked the Marco Polo for the heated pool.
The jacuzzi was super hot and the pool was warm enough.
It was perfect for an early evening swim. The pool is nice because there aren’t a lot of people. Very exclusive.
The Marco Polo also has a play place for kids, which opens from 9am to 9pm:
It’s just a room in the ground floor but it’s free. Tons of books for you to read.
Breakfast on the 24th floor was included in our room.
The food was about average, the spread is diverse but the service is impeccable.
That’s the difference between a regular and a five-star hotel.
Overall, I paid php6,210 for our overnight staycation. Adding taxes, our stay amounted to php7,800.
No complaints about the Marco Polo, everything was lovely.
But I do think staycations are overrated.
Next time, we will book somewhere farther instead as our stay in a hotel feels very similar as staying in our comfortable home.
As my husband says, “It’s like home but with cable.”
At least we are together!
Happy holidays everyone!
