A night's stay costs less than 60 USD. Free Wi-Fi (ave 2Mbps), Free Breakfast Buffet, wide selection of breakfast food. Free use of gym (small one), Fee use of swimming pool (for kids) only 4ft deep and approx 15mtrs long. Accredited Taxis are queued outside the hotel. Nearest mall is the Abreeza (an Ayala Mall). Pleasant experience, nothing to complain and nothing to get really excited. I stayed here for a business trip for 6 days.

Spacious room, friendly staff, fast room service, ample parking space at the back.
Just that cigarettes can be smelled from a distance.

I conducted a seminar recently with this hotel..From start to end of our seminar there were numerous problems encountered. They have a really bad service and coordination..their staff looks like they are not trained to handle customers and guests..they have security issues (they give keycards to customers to rooms that have already check-in guests (imagine that?!) even if I already have a contract with them (and my company have been their customer for several past activities) still the mishandling of the staff and sales officers/executive..i will totally recommend that this hotel be banned from sending us a quotation in case we again conduct another event (which is very possible)..it gave me a lot of headache..readers/tourists/organizers, you are warned..

Stayed for a week in this hotel. Staffs are friendly and service is average. Room needs refurbishing. Not so clean but spacious. Advantage is the room is comfortable. Breakfast has improved sinced we were there last 2 years ago. Taste better this time although it has no wide selection as in other hotels. Location is outside the city proper but accessible by taxis,lots of them. Easily can reach the new mall, Abreeza Ayala Mall. Tips for gamblers, casino just adjacent the building. Gym is okay but swimmjing pool is too small. The staffs are helpful and friendly. Price is average for a 3 stars hotel.

We stayed there to attend a convention. The staff are friendly. However, one would not call the rooms grand nor regal. Their idea of a room meant for triple-sharing is placing a foldable bed in a room meant for two. The centralized switch for the aircon, lights and alarm is cool though. They provide the usual towel, soap and shampoo but that's it. No dental or shaving kits. The room has no ref. There's no snack bar. There's cable TV but there's no wifi (only on the upper floors or lobby). The rooms are cleaned daily but unfortunately for us, we stayed at the end of the hallway, where they dumped the soiled linens and unclean dishes they get from all the rooms. Room service is inconsistent. Upon check in, if you have no credit card, they will ask you to pay cash upfront.

Room Tip: Do not get the rooms at the end of the hallways. This is where they dump all of the soiled linens...

I found the Grand Regal Hotel a fantastic place. its full of Davao charm and the staff are fantastic. I was initially startled by the carpeted floors( many hotels whave polished wooden now) but hey, it goes with the place, the rooms are spacious and the price is average and affirdable, especially compared to the Marco Polo ( $500.00 US) per night wow!! When i stayed there last.
The hotel is located abot 7 Klm from town but a taxi will cost 120 pesos or you can catch a jeepny outside the hotel for 20 peso.. Its your choice of course. Perhaps you should try both.
I found the Grand Regal Hotel a great place, good security with internet in rooms ( just ask
for password at lobby desk) and of course the whole of the lobby area is free wifi also. My recommendation is to go there and enjoy the hotel. Just a small note, if you are a smoker ( Davao city has strong anti smoking laws- so dont breach them) you can smoke in designated areas and always dispose of your rubbish and cigerette butts in the right place. Davao city is a rather clean city and its good to see.

Room Tip: You can book online and it can be cheaper
