Over the Weekend at Manila Marriott Hotel

Vibe of elegance and grandeur greeted us when my friend, Elal, and me entered the lobby of Manila Marriott Hotel. It was our hotel for the weekend. We were the first to arrive and we decided to check in to our room already so we can rest for a while while waiting for the others to come. We had agendum that weekend and taking a nap for a moment will give us a little boost that could stay us longer until the wee hours. Imagine a long list of activities we have to cover over the weekend.

That weekend was jam packed of several activities to do. We were not new to such hectic schedule and I have to admit that we’re already kind of expert to manage our time whenever we have an eventful staycation. 

Manila Marriott Hotel


Our agendum that weekend includes experience the Executive Lounge of the hotel, a sumptuous dinner and breakfast at Marriott Café, an afternoon of relaxation at hotel’s Jacuzzi and outdoor pool, watch a play at Newport Theater and of course – KTV night with the group.

Marriott Hotel is situated in Newport City in Pasay City, which is just adjacent to Ninoy Aquino International Airport. The hotel is a great place to stay if you want near the airport. It is a place suitable for both business and leisure travelers. The hotel is located within an entertainment district. It is part of a nonstop-integrated tourist area that includes a casino, hotels, shopping mall, cinema and theater.

It was the next day when we were able to experience the other facilities of the hotel. We went for a swim on their outdoor pool – and spent a little time at their Jacuzzi area, just to try it before we head out.

Spending a night in Manila Marriott Hotel was definitely too short for we to be able to cover all the superb facilities that the hotel has. It wasn’t just the rooms that we enjoyed our time the most but at their exclusive facilities as well. Our group totally enjoyed hanging around at the Executive Lounge. The service and hospitality of the staff made our stay even more pleasing.
