The hotel is basically a 300P drive from the Clark airport and is smack in the middle of the Angeles town action on Walking Street. No use pretending why you are here so may as well get amongst it! ;)
The nightlife is either side of the hotel and there is even a little bar & pool at the back of the hotel where you can relax with a reasonably priced beer. But personally I think the best feature of the hotel is the restaurant area at the front of the hotel as it is the perfect place to sit, have a drink and people watch. Also the restaurant is open 24/7 and the food is actually pretty good.
The rooms are in the middle of being renovated and the work can be a little noisy but the workers don't start till a respectable 10am and honestly wasn’t a problem for me.
For those who are woken by a pin drop.....wear some ear plugs.
When I first walked into my room I thought.....hmm this is NOT a 3*, but in the scheme of things, and the fact that the room was kept very clean and the overall ambiance of the hotel is quite amazing, I think they are justified with that rating.
The rooms are very different from each other....so my room was HUGE....even had a bar and a stage equip with disco lighting and a pole in the middle of it (yes all you firemen will feel right at home) and the bed was a super jumbo. The shower area was also large, but water pressure was very poor and the water that came out smelled a lot of iron (bore water perhaps?) But again, not such a big deal.
The TV was a rear projection TV and was HUGE but was starting to lose a bit of colour, but again acceptable, and they also give you the use of a DVD player...yes they also have movie channel (HBO) for those antisocial moments you may need.
The Safe was harder to work out than the Da Vinci Code and eventually I had to get the manageress to come help me reset it, but once accomplished was big enough to chuck all your valuables in. (I was later informed that the info for the Safe is in the hotel hand book and so do NOT read the safe instructions….they are wrong :))
Overall a great stay and I would not hesitate to come back here again.
