Travel | Holiday Inn & Suites Makati

By huayyu - 8/09/2019

Anticipating another long weekend where you can relax and unwind?  No need to travel far.  Here is another one of my recommended hotel for a staycation within the Metro, Holiday Inn & Suites Makati.

Why Holiday Inn & Suites Makati?  Well, aside from their super friendly staff and clean rooms, it is how well the hotel is situated.  Right next to a mall!  Of course, you can't stay in the room all day.  Part of unwinding is also shopping!

Holiday Inn & Suites Makati's reception is located on the 2nd floor or L Floor.  The area is a bit small so it may be crowded especially during check-in and check-out times but don't worry, the staff is there to assist you especially the guards (they will control the flow of the crowd).

Located on the L Floor as well are the Food and Beverage outlets, Citron Lobby Bar and Flavors Restaurant.  We haven't tried them yet so I can't give you a review for both outlets.

Flavors restaurant is their main outlet.  It is where the buffet breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served.  They also have some awesome displays of cakes and other confectioneries.  I was late in posting this so you may notice that one of the designs is for Easter.


 We booked for their Standard Room with King Bed.  The room is 32 sqm with all the usual amenities of a hotel room.  To name a few: TV, Minibar, In-Room Safe and many more.

Need to press your clothes for a meeting?  They also have an iron and ironing board in the room.  No need to panic if you forgot to have them ironed.

Of course, we can't forget about the bathroom.  It is neat and clean.  For standard guest rooms, they only have walk-in showers.  They do also offer bathrooms with bathtub but for Suites only.  So be sure to upgrade your room if you want to enjoy a luxurious bubble bath.

What's with a staycation without swimming!  This is a must especially if you have kids.  Holiday Inn & Suites Makati has a kiddie pool and swimming pool which is located at the roof deck.  It is open from 6:00AM to 8:00PM.

Also located at the roof deck are the Spa, Gym and Oz Bar.  The spa is open from 10:00AM to 12:00AM while the Gym operates from 6:00AM to 10:00PM.  For in-house guests, you can use the Gym for 24 hours.  You just need to "0" for the operator.

As I was saying, this hotel is for shopping lovers.  They are literally next to the mall that you don't have to go out of the hotel to get there.  In the Lobby, there is a walkway that leads to the mall.

And if you go down to the Ground Floor, you will also find an entrance to the mall.  Very convenient.  For those who are bringing in their cars, you can have your ticket validated at the Concierge located on the Ground Floor.  A little bit inconvenient if you are checking out since you have to go down the Ground Floor to get the ticket validated instead of getting it validated straight at the Front Desk.

Another thing for those who are bringing in their cars, make sure to go to Basement 2 for parking as that is where the hotel's allocated parking slots are located.  There is no signage on where the allocated parking slots of the hotel once you enter the parking area so you might get confused.  My suggestion on this is that they should place signages on areas for the car to follow especially as the basement parking is big.  A lot of people who want to check-in might get confused and instead of having complimentary parking, they might have to pay if they parked on the wrong side.

Overall, the hotel staff is super friendly.  The rooms are clean and the location is perfect for tourists and locals alike who love to shop.
