Until I was invited by a good friend to attend his son’s birthday at Crown Plaza in Ortigas one weekend, I never imagined that one can enjoy luxurious accommodations in a top hotel’s presidential suite for a rate one would pay for a regular room in Singapore.
And part of the benefits is breakfast at the club lounge, plus afternoon tea and cocktails in the same exclusive lounge.
The presidential suite is right beside the club lounge. The room is spacious, with a king bed, and all the amenities one would expect. The bathroom is adjacent, and is the size of another hotel room.
The living room and dining is welcoming. There is a huge TV on the wall facing the sofa. The dining table sits 6. A bottle of wine and a selection of fruits and pastries welcomed me into the suite.
Well I guess if the distinguished guest wants to prepare some food, there is a kitchen adjoining the dining room.
I love the thoughtfulness. And the fact that there is a varied selection of beverages, including my favorite teas.
The view may not be spectacular when you look down from your window, as the roofs of the nearby establishments are just at the bottom. But looking farther away makes one feel the magnificence of being on the top floor of this hotel, and in a presidential suite at that.
As the hotel is quite popular and is easy to find, I am not doing a “How to get There” and not publishing their rates.
And by the way, the Seven Corners Restaurant is one of the top attractions of this hotel. Sadly, I was not able to take a photo as we were all busy partaking of the varied dishes around the many buffet tables.
I give this hotel a Perfect 10 for Value.
The description and narration about the place is factual. I am also a frequent client of Crowne Plaza and very reasons why I always keep on coming back are the “going the extra mile” attitude of the Staff plus the value for money of its services and facilities. Testament to this is the seven consecutive years that the hotel is hosting our Annual Convention of 1200 attendees and pocket meetings every month.
Thank you for inviting me to Hanns’ birthday so I got the “excuse” to book the presidential suite. What a pleasant surprise.
