More and more hotels and resorts are embracing “staycationers” with open arms and making their properties more appealing to this type of guest. The idea of actually “checking in to stay in” as opposed to using the hotel as “just a place to crash” is changing the way we see hotels. I see myself ticking both boxes— there are times when I’m a staycationer and other times I’m a vacationer who just needs a decent place to call “home” for a few nights. When in Manila though, staycationing for the weekend is what I love to do with my family. Theo LOVES hotels so much, that he always enters the room saying “Wooooow!! NICE!!!” which always elicits a giggle from the hotel staff assigned to us. An overnighter is sometimes all you need to recharge your weary batteries as a tired mom/overworked dad! It’s amazing what 24 hours in a new environment can do to your family life 🙂 Just having room service and cuddle time with your sweethearts will help you form lots of treasured memories with your little ones.
Two weekends back, we were invited to review the newly fitted baby-friendly suites of Discovery Suites Ortigas. And I can definitely say that this is MOMMY PATTY approved! Once you book your chosen room in Discovery Suites Ortigas, you can simply call guest services and request for a baby-friendly room. They can prep your room with the baby essentials—an Aprica crib with pillows and clean sheets, and a sterilizer and bottle warmer both from Avent. These three items will save you the trouble of having to transport them from your house to the hotel—a concern that most moms raise when planning a vacation! Imagine that’s 3 major things on your must have list that you don’t have to stress over! The suites in Discovery Suites are actually very family-friendly to begin with because of all the space you get PLUS most suites are equipped with a nice kitchenette that comes complete with a refrigerator, cooktop, utensils, plates, etc.. You can feel right at home without being at home. And it’s located right across Megamall and Podium Mall, so the location makes it perfect for mid-day malling with the kids. They actually have an on going promo for Mother’s Day for bookings on May 8-15, 2017. Just click HERE to avail of the promo!
Thanks again to the wonderful team of Discovery Suites Ortigas for hosting the Filarts last weekend and for making it so comfortable for Theo. We also loved our date night at 22 PRIME. The steak was unbelievable and the prawns were equally stellar! Discovery Suites is located in the heart of Ortigas Business District. You can book your room via their website www.discoverysuites.com 🙂
