One Sweet Stay at Discovery Suites

After the suitest Oakwood Joy-Nostalg experience, here comes another suite stay. Thanks to Rob and Deal Grocer for this 50% off discount voucher. This one-bedroom suite in Discovery Suites Ortigas only costs P3,950- inclusive of breakfast for 2. Very good promo indeed, specially if you're an OFW or an expat who wishes to stay in Manila comfortably and reasonably. Discovery Suites is a good option.

I know it's not very practical to spend a night in a hotel, but come on, I haven't really traveled since that traumatic Bali incident 2 months ago. It's been a while since I last had a getaway. Daming excuses! Haha But in reality, it just all boils down the fact that I love to sleep in a luxurious bed once in a while. So thanks Rob for this treat, again!

Discovery Suites lobby

Check-in time was 3:00pm but luckily for us, our room was ready at 2:00. The staff were all nice. They were very accommodating. We didn't encounter any hassle as we used the voucher.

The 1-BR suite assigned to us was on the 20th floor. And it's quite nice to see a space to breathe in the center of the rooms.

1st time ever to wear pink nail polish ^_^

I've read a couple of mixed feedbacks regarding Discovery Suites that's why I never set any expectations. This hotel may not be brand new but I can say that the suite was well maintained and clean.

This 1-BR suite has almost all the appliances and furniture the guests might need. I think this is perfect for long term stays.

may not be high end, but all the things you need (to throw a party) are here!

or things you need to host a small get together

Living area has a cozy feel. Full sized windows freshened the ambiance. It's (like) home!

As for the room, it was spacious. Full sized windows made the room brighter. The bed was one of the most remarkable. The pillow and comforter were probably made to create a perfect sleep. And indeed, I had. It's more than some cheap holidays costa teguise.

one of the most remarkable beds = simply perfect sleep

thanks Rob, ang dami!
yes, cuervo for mang Narcing

Aside from the bedroom, the bathroom is always the highlight of a hotel stay. This suite's version is simple but slightly classy.

bath tub and shower area

and of course, complete with toiletries

The super sound sleep in that bed was very unforgettable, but this door lock is running second. See why..

how can i forget this hilarious door lock.. ^_^

Rob and I checked out the indoor pool area. Uncrowded. No one was there. And no more swimsuit shot for me. Di na keri, di na ko slim! ^_^

The 50% off voucher we availed also includes 2 breakfast buffet @Restaurant 5. This deal is really great, I told yah!

elegant setup

Can't post all the photos here, but these are some of them.

cereal, yogurt, and four seasons juice

french toast, hash brown, bacon strips, and watermelon juice
super yummy plate!

can't get enough of these hash browns and bacon strips! that's the way to start the day

Overall, Discovery Suites may not be as excellent as Oakwood, but the hotel is clean, maintained, and spacious. Not to mention the very accommodating staff. Imagine for P3,950 - you can get a sound sleep in a 1BR suite and a hearty breakfast buffet. This deal is quite a steal!

I'd also like to mention Remay for the short visit. Thanks for bringing Rero along!

but you'll have your own party on your 1st bday, soon!

I miss Discovery! I used to work in the same building. Natandaan ko yang room. Nagmahal na pala yung ganyang suite? As far as i rmmbr ganyan tlga price nya date when we used our free stay there courtesy of our company. Sa bagay matagal na kase ako nakapasok jan pero everything looks the same pa din. Ikaw na ang prinsesa ng mga posh hotel! :)

JeffZ said...

buffet breakfast FTW!..

Axl Powerhouse Production Inc. said...

Anonymous said...

ok and pwede na. Pero the best talaga si Oakwood e...hehehe :D

docgelo said...

haven't been to discovery suites but from your photos, it's not difficult to like it. tina and gabby will give their thumbs up with your cereal plate, mas mahilig sila doon kaysa sa akin.

i heard there's a must-try steak house at its 22nd floor called 22Prime. i could just imagine the ambience of the entire ortigas while dunking fork on a sumptuous plate of steak... (imagination ko lang iyon!)

saan kayang hotel kayo sa susunod na bakasyon ni rob? *just asking* hehehe...

ps : sama naman sa shangri la the fort nyo sa 2014, haha! pero treat pa din ni rob ha. hehe!

The Average Jane said...

Love the lighting fictures in the lobby. And the pool's so elegant. =)

Rizalenio said...

Love the food photos as always. Ang sweet naman ni Rob. :)

pusang kalye said...

na-excite ako sa pool. parang ang intimate--maliit pero diko nafeel yung parang dika makahinga kasi ang aliawalas ng sauna?hehehe

kg said...

parang bitin ang one day dyan! he he!

i would love to spend a day in a hotel doing nothing... but the practical side of me always wins. kaya ang labas, never pa. he he!

renevic said...

Living in luxury? whoa. ganda.

nicquee said...

Gandaaaa! I miss reading your posts!

Parang bitin ang 1 night. At sa itsura mong yan, hindi ka na slim nian? Ganda ng pool! Actually lahat nagandahan ako!

Karla said...

Wow, its a very sweet stay indeed! :D Ang sarap mag-unwind kahit saglit at syempre magswimming sa pool.

Btw, ang cute naman ni Rero! ^__^ Ano ang breed nya?

joan said...

The Nomadic Pinoy said...

after a 16-hour flight from NYC, I usually stay for a night in Manila dahil na rin sa pagod - that bed is something I want to sleep in, sana may ganyang voucher din ako next year :)

LordCM said...

Mitch said...

Hoobert the Awesome said...

Ganyan talaga pag rich, pa-hotel-hotel na lang. Hehehe. Biro lang Ate Chyng. I miss you. Di ka na napapadaan sa blog ko ah. Pero okay lang, alam ko busy ka.

I've heard a lot of good things din naman sa Discovery Suites. And mas mura pa compared sa iba. Pero di ko talaga mapigilan mapatawa dun sa door lock. Hahaha.

Invited ba ako sa birthday ni Rero? Hahaha.


lakwatsera de primera said...

sometimes kim & sometimes mj said...

Kristel said...

Nagbalik ang voucher sa Deal Grocer, but more expensive na siya. It's at P4,250 now. Sounds good still though. :)

Mo said...

We got to stay here also c/o DealGrocer and we were given free GCs at Terra Spa :) The room we stayed at is the same as yours, we would have wanted to stay in the newly renovated rooms pero they will charge an additional fee pa so we opted not to. But the room is nice nonetheless :)

I love reading your blog!

Dins said...
