This was my first time staying at a luxury hotel and I must say it will be hard for me to go back to more modest lodgings! First thing I noticed about the Marriott are the security measures: all vehicles must enter a gate and is thoroughly inspected by guards. This is because the Marriott is a terrorist target in this part of the world. However at no time did I ever feel unsafe during my stay. Kudos to the security staff.
Rooms are spacious and stylishly furnished as one would expect. The bed I had was firm but quite comfortable. The desk chair was so nice I wanted one of my own. There are also the standard amenities: cable tv, broadband internet (for which you must pay...thumbs down for this...should be free considering the room rates). Speaking of which, my room was quoted at USD$90 but with added VAT, service charge and 'local tax' you'll end up paying close to USD$115.
The restaurant there is quite nice. The food and service are what I expected from a four star hotel. When I stayed in Jan. 2010 there is a seafood buffet every Friday and Saturday nights that is well worth the price (999 PHP). I had no complaints regarding wait staff or any other hotel employees during my stay.
Overall I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again while in Cebu City.
