I booked via Agoda and got a good deal. We got the overnight stay at a Deluxe room with breakfast.
Parking is ample so we did not have trouble with that. Also, it's free!
We were aware that it is a peak period so it is expected that there would be a line when checking in. We were lucky to have been approached by one of the front desk staff and asked to sit down so she could prepare the documents for check in. We were advised that our request for a King bed is not available. It was quite funny because we don't need 2 beds since it was just my husband and me. So the front desk staff said she'll check again and a few minutes later, we were informed that there is a room available with King bed but we have to wait for the room to be cleaned and readied. We said ok. We waited for almost an hour but then again we were willing to wait since it is weird to get 2 beds for a couple.
The bed is quite nice, clean and soft. Room is minimalistic but alright. I'll rate it a 4-star but not a 5-star though.
The bathroom is small. The door of the bathroom blocks the way to the toilet bowl.
We had a great view of the fireworks when it struck midnight though since they have a huge glass window near the bed.
Plus point is that they don't have smoking rooms. Since we are non-smokers, we appreciate that the hotel do not allow smoking in rooms.
Alabang/Filinvest though is quite tame compared to other cities in Manila so the fireworks you see is from the farther part of the metro. It's very quiet at night, hubby and I went around town to look for a place to have a snack around 1-2AM but the place is too dark and too quiet. Not the place you would go to for parties.
Breakfast though was just ok. We did not eat much since the food were not very appetizing (ie the mini ensaymada looks unappetizing, color not nice and does not look natural). It was just so-so. Some are bland, even the mini donuts did not taste good. Not much fruit available.
All in all, it was a good stay but not what you expect for a 5-star hotel. I guess because it is quite new, so it still needs lots of improvement especially on the food.
