In preparation for my nephew’s birthday party, we’ve decided do to a staycation in Holiday Inn and Suites Makati so that we could do mini-photoshoots in the hotel and the nearby malls. We’ve had a great time and the photos turned out lovely. The guests at the party enjoyed looking at them.

Metro Manila has some of the world-class luxury hotels in the country. Among the most highly recommended (in Agoda and TripAdvisor) for family staycation is the Holiday Inn and Suites of Makati.  This hotel is located right in the heart of the Makati Business District.

Here are 10 excellent reasons why Holiday Inn and Suites should be the next staycation hotel for your family:

  1. Convenient location for entertainment

The hotel is just a few steps away from the Glorietta Shopping Mall, where you can find everything you need from designer outfits to grocery items. You and your family can shop, dine, or watch films all you want. What’s more, Glorietta is just adjacent to other marvelous shopping places, particularly the posh Greenbelt and the Landmark Department Store.

  1. Modern and spacious guest rooms

You can never get enough of the ultra-comfortable rooms complete with amenities such as mini-bar, cable TV, work area, and safe.

  1. Free Wifi access

If you can’t live without your phone, tablet and laptop, you’ll be glad to know that Holiday Inn provides free Wifi access to guests. No need to miss all the office emails and Facebook posts.

  1. Kids Eat and Stay Free Program

Kids aged 12 and younger get to eat free anytime of the day in any Holiday Inn restaurant. Restaurants feature kids’ menus to keep your young ones happy, satisfied, and full.  Nothing could be kid-friendlier!

  1. Business Center and Executive Lounge

You can mix business with pleasure, as the hotel has fully-equipped meeting and function rooms. You can attend that all-important business meeting while your family is nearby enjoying the pool and other hotel amenities. From your own hotel room, you can also make local and toll-free calls, or IDD/NDD calls (charged upon checkout). Also avail of free printing and faxing services.

  1. The Green Engage System

Effective May 1, 2016, all guestrooms of the hotel will be smoke-free to provide a green and wholesome environment for guests, especially children. No more worries about the dangers of secondhand smoke!

  1. Rooftop bar and swimming pool

Chill out at a bar alongside the swimming pool area on the rooftop.  Feel the breezes and stargaze all you want. You will definitely not get this experience at home! It was just too bad it rained while we were there and wasn’t able to use the swimming pool.

  1. Dine-in promos

From April 2016, you earn points from dining at the hotel’s restaurants and using the hotel’s amenities when you charge the bills to your room. Use the points to redeem free nights or choose your reward from the hotel’s catalog.

  1. Special seasonal discounts

The hotel indicates yearly promo periods where it grants special discounts when you book a room during a specified date range. Call the hotel for those special discount periods.

  1. Rewards Club

You can sign up for the Rewards Club. Earn points for your hotel stays at the Holiday Inn and its partner hotels worldwide. You also get bonus air miles. It’s the hotel’s way of showing appreciation for your loyalty and patronage.

And during your stay, you can depend on the friendly and ever-helpful hotel staff to attend to your every need. Incidentally, the staff is one of the hotel’s best assets!
