We're currently staying in St. Mark's for 5 days worth. We decided to try it out when I saw the 40% discount being offered for TripAdvisor members.
I must say it's pretty new. The walls heading to our room are still undergoing some final touches, but the overall interior design, common area and the room included, have all been already laid out and well-thought of if I may add.
The rates' definitely a steal, but the deal-breaker for me is how the service have went even before we checked-in to St.Mark's. Our trip has long been planned, so it's been more than a month already when I canvassed for a place that my girlfriend and I will be staying for our Cebu trip. Suffice to say there have been plenty of offers, some among the more established hotels in Cebu, and others from recently opened ones that range from 5-star to the budget ones. What got my attention was how St. Mark's hotel's Sales Team handled our conversation over the call. It was straightforward, no on-the-side miscellaneous fees, marketing, just what I needed - the net rates for the duration of our stay. I didn't even ask for a discount but they gave me one. Marginal but nevertheless, when hotels go out of their way, that will always be a big plus.
Upon our arrival we weren't disappointed with the meals even. We did have to wait for the check-in time, and coming from a very early flight from Manila, breakfast was long overdue so well, might as well eat. Buffet is awesome and at just PhP 304.00, it's a steal if ever you just want to eat here! Service is great, snappy, and reliable. Best part is after we finished eating, their restaurant staffed informed us that there was a room ready for us and early check-in was granted.
Overall, this has been a terrific stay and experience! Kudos to Roxanne, Myra, and the rest of the staff of St. Mark's hotel for giving us a great experience with their reliable service and reasonable rates! Hope to get to stay here again soon! :)
For the bundle-savvy - morning buffet, wifi (we have our pocket wifi so we didn't avail this as much), complimentary coffee / water in-room, mini-bar, clothing iron and ironing stands, LCD screen, safe for tucking away your valuables, and a speaker dock for your audio player or Apple phone is there for the taking. Have fun and hope you enjoy your stay in St. Mark's as much we're doing! :)
