stayed here during a business conference
main lobby is small: can get crowded during mass check-in/out events. couches may only seat up to 5 people (big issue for me). they got welcome drinks (pineapple juice, if i recall.)
only 2 elevators: again with the crowding issue. but since the hotel only goes up 12 stories, it's acceptable, i guess.
elevator has no 4th floor. are we living in the 21st century or is this superstition that prevalent?
room is pretty much ok, what is usually seen is business hotels.
only 1 chair, considering that the room houses 2 people.
there's 1 internet cable. not an issue because wifi is available. we've had connectivity issues during our stay, but their IT staff were there to help out.
food tastes great and is good for value. helps when i have no other reason to go outside except to eat dinner.
great location too: 10-min walk to ayala center cebu. and they were on sale at that time.
bathroom's got a clothesline, but no tub. also, no shelf in the shower to put soap and shampoo.
housekeeping staff also respected by request to not move my stuff (and change my bedding). daily changes are just excessive for any hotel, unless you're a germophobe or have a valid medical condition.
business venue was spacious enough for us. had an issue with the supply of extension cords, but audio-visual support was great.
was annoying that there was a lot of noise coming from the room next to us. i don't care if it's an essential part of their program: they shouldn't be doing that in rooms very close to others, and i think any event venue should screen clients if they are expected to generate loud noise levels.
