One of the perks of being a blogger is that we can check some of the hotel’s best suites and rooms and boy, I was so lucky because I was given the chance to enter the Presidential Suite which costs P600,000 per night and the historical MacArthur Suite which costs P400,000 per night at the Manila Hotel last summer. Another memorable experience was our recent wedding anniversary staycation celebration at the EDSA Shangri-la Hotel last October 30.
After our dinner at the Horizon Club Lounge, we were informed that Eddie will assist us in their most expensive suite which is the EDSA Suite. Hubby and I were so excited because their most affordable room, which is the Deluxe Room is already luxurious enough– what more if you stay in their most expensive suite? Well, I think it’s one of the anniversary treats for us 🙂
Now, are you excited as well? Okay, fasten your seatbelts and let us have a tour.
The Edsa Suite is located at the Tower Wing of the hotel and it has a total area of 215 sqm.
It has a living room with a breathtaking view of the Manila Skyline, but since we came in after dinner, it was already dark and we couldn’t show the view in the picture. Eddie has mentioned to us his funny experience when he served as a butler in this suite. He didn’t know then that a remote control is needed to open the curtain and sheer. Actually, we saw this during our tour in the Presidential suite and MacArthur Suite of the Manila Hotel, so we were not surprised anymore.
This area, aside from having a spectacular view, where you can entertain visitors and a comfortable office desk where you can work comfortably while enjoying the luxurious staycation.
THE DINING ROOM
Unlike the other rooms and suites in Edsa Shangri-la, the EDSA Suite has a dining table where you can dine with your family. The other rooms don’t have one– it’s just the center table in the living room. Here, you can have privacy while having your meals and be comfortable as well.
The kitchen is equipped with microwave oven, induction cooker, and minibar. What’s special about this minibar is that if you have consumed all the items there, you can request them to refill it for you without any charge. The overnight stay here in the Edsa Suite has also a Horizon Lounge access, wherein guests are free to have snacks from 2-4pm during afternoon tea time and pre-dinner from 5-7pm during cocktail hour. In other words, the guests really don’t need anything at all. If they are thirsty, they can go to the club lounge anytime because it’s open for 24 hours to keep guests hydrated. Anyway, because they treat guests as VIP, and this room is the most expensive one, they want their guests to be comfortable — so if they feel like they wanted to stay in the room and just be on the bed for the whole day, they have stock in their minibar 🙂
They also have assorted tea flavors for the guests, teapots and goblets.
There’s a spacious walk in closet as well where you can place your clothes and shoes.
The bathroom, just like in the Garden Suite has also a shower area, bathtub, vanity area. The only difference is the premium toiletries.
The bedroom is so spacious– it has a bed, LED Tv, working desk and a daybed. Staying here will make you feel so comfy that you just want to stay in the room and rest.
It has a connecting room that makes it the second bedroom in the suite.
What else? You have everything that you need— but here, you have your personal butler who will take care of all your needs 24/7.
Thank you, Edsa Shangri-la for this experience. Next year I will see if I can show more of their rooms and facilities. Til next post, guys!
