Honestly, I prefer A Venue 10 times more than Dusit Hotel. Why? The interior is modern and stylish compare to the granny flat style of the Dusit, wooden floorboards compare to the ugly old carpet in the Dusit. Yes, the breakfast is much better in Dusit (more choices), but hey, I rather eat out than staying in a old-fashioned hotel like the Dusit. OK, the only complain I have is the location: you need to take a taxi to Greenbelt/Glorietta, but as mentioned before: taxi cost hardly anything (around PHP50-70). The female receptionist at the A Venue was a bit arrogant and not a smile from her, but the rest of the A Venue people were ok.
Anyway, I think the most important part is that you feel comfortable in your room, which I certainly did. My room came with an suite and a kitchenette, which included a sink, fridge, microwave and water kettle.
Also, I experienced that the location of this hotel was by fare quieter than the the Dusit (less traffic noise). The room I had in Dusit had a door to the next room which enabled me to hear any conversations they had in the next room, but most annoyingly I was able to hear the blaring of the TV early from in the morning till late at night! Also the ringing of the elevator door is very noisy I still heard it from my room, which a fare way away!
After staying in budget accommodations on Boracay it had a huge "WOW" effect on me when I saw my room in the A Venue. Trust me, you can't do wrong with this one!
