Ever since it opened in 2014, I have always wanted to visit the Marco Polo Hotel in Ortigas, Pasig City. But due to work, marriage and now comes pregnancy I’ve forgotten all about it…
Thanks to that one faithful browsing night in Instagram, we decided to have an on the spot planning and book their weekend dine, stay and play package for superior room priced at Php 5,800 in total for 2 guests overnight stay. So comes the weekend, we had our staycation!
A complimentary parking is available for guests, and if you have a companion who wants to park in their building they charge a fee of Php 100 for the first three hours.
Their lobby is located in the 24th floor (ergo their tagline of Philippine’s First Sky Hotel) because the other lower floors were occupied by offices.
All complete: You got your mineral water, soap, shampoo, body gel, toothbrush, cotton buds, slippers and many others. But one thing that is very important and missing: They do not have a bidet 🙁
Mustering all my second trimester energy, we decided to take a dip in the pool while my sister tries their gym which I find really inviting with their modern equipment and available gym trainer. If it hadn’t been pregnant I might have a go on their Treadmill.
And so I dip and swam to my heart’s content in their pool instead, which is just the perfect temperature. They also have a jacuzzi in the corner which I didn’t get into as my condition restrain me. Their pool area in 22nd floor which is open from 6:00am-10:00pm is one of the highlights of my visit. I really enjoyed it. Why? It’s indoor with a great view, good ambience, tempting sofa seats to rest on, unlimited available dry towels and free cucumber water on standby.
Not to mention that there were only few guests or almost none when we’re there 🙂 and to cap it all off they have one of the best shower areas I’ve been to! Talk about great amenities and superb service from all the attentive staff.
Before bed time I did indulge a few hours in the bath tub. Tip though: Bring your own bath salt/foam that’s oozing with foam and scent because the one they have there seems bland.
Overall, The Marco Polo Ortigas Hotel experience is very luxurious, relaxing and simply nice. The room is spot on with all the great features, their amenities are well maintained, the restroom is clean, modern and sleek. But for me, the highlight will be that of superb attentive service from their staff plus the affordable price it all comes with.
Good Job! Marco Polo Ortigas… I will see you again soon!
