PH | Holiday Inn & Suites Makati: One Kid-Friendly Hotel

We've been very much blessed to have enjoyed staycations in a number of hotels around the Metro.  They're great alternatives to out-of-town vacations if ever you find yourself pressed for time to get away from the city (and what we definitely do have lacking of is some quality vacation time with the Husband here in PH what with his busy schedule and all).  I've noticed, though, that very few can boast to be truly kid-friendly, except for a handful.

One such hotel that is indeed family-friendly is the new Holiday Inn & Suites in Makati.

Checking in on a weekend ensured that we enjoyed all their basic commodities plus more.

Accomodations are New!

Our rooms were tastefully furnished.  And being a newly opened hotel, we enjoyed very clean and new accommodations.  TIP: Be sure to ask for the local residents' rate.

Checking the refreshments in the bar, you'd find the usual snacks plus some more extras.

Too bad the bear and Crayola activity pack weren't free.  =)

Kids Stay and Eat Free

Breakfast the next day at their flavors restaurant was an enjoyable affair, as well.

Food aside (which, by the way, was delicious), the Little One enjoyed her meal as she was also provided with her own set of utensils.

And it being the weekend, the hotel staff also arranged a small play area for their little guests near the lobby, right beside the restaurant.

Aside from some toys, there was also a coloring station.

Plus a Wii gaming station as well (using a huge protector as a screen none the less).

Glorietta: The Next Door Neighbor

Another plus is it's very close proximity to Glorietta.  In fact, it's actually located right beside it, with an entry way leading straight to Glorietta 2.  A major plus, especially for me, since I could enjoy some quality me shopping time while the Husband and the Little One do their own thing.

Truly an enjoyable weekend.  There was something for all of us to enjoy.  J
