We're back to the real world! After a long weekend all of us get a little bit lazy to move our body around especially when it comes to going back to work. I know the feeling. If only I had loads of money I would rather spent an entire week in a hotel room.
I'm still reminiscing the events of last Saturday when me and hubby spent an overnight stay in Intercontinental Manila in Makati. It's actually our post wedding anniversary celebration since we didn't celebrate our wedding anniversary on the day itself. With the help of a dear friend, I was able to get a room for a cheaper cost and we get to enjoy a relaxing weekend especially me. No fuss on doing the laundry or any household chores for that matter.
Our check-in time was 2pm so we paid on the front desk the room rate+ Php 2000 deposit. The lobby of the hotel is not that busy. My guess is that majority of the people in the metro are all in the provinces taking advantage of the holiday.
Our room is on the 4th floor of the hotel. I noticed that the paint is new and you can smell it but not the strong, overpowering kind of smell. According to my friend, the hotel is newly renovated.

|Found our Deluxe room!|
|Closet and Mini Bar on the right and Bathroom on the left (once you entered the room from the outside)|
The closet contains two bathrobes, 2 pairs of slipper, a safety/security box, loads of hangers for different clothing, a steamed iron and an ironing board. We're unlucky to have a defective steamed iron in our room. We didn't bother to call housekeeping/ room service since we're just staying in the room overnight. If we will be staying for 2 more days then it will be a different story.
I told hubby if we could setup a minibar in our 3rd floor space back home. I'm actually after the personal/mini ref that we can use and hide in this kind of setup (see photo above). I can just stash some juices and sodas in the fridge as well as hubby's chocolates. Hopefully we can start fixing our place next year.
So what's in the mini bar? Nuts, chips, bottle of mineral water, sodas in can, snickers bars, beer in cans and some hard drinks in mini bottles. I didn't took a picture of it but I'm sure you have an idea what I meant.

What I like in their bathroom is that it's filled with lots of towels - face towel, hand towel, bath towel and even bathrobe. But the bathrobe is in the closet, the 3 towels are all inside the bathroom. Apart from that, they have lots of tissue. There are 2 rolls of tissue paper that you normally use when using the john and there's a box of facial tissue which I used to wipe the steam in the mirror whenever I took a bath =P
|A working bathtub! Hooray!|
|comfy king size bed|
|bedside desk and lamps (lamps & lights in the room are all working)|
|look who's enjoying the LG LCD TV|
|What a pleasant surprise! Found this in one of the desk drawers|
|Free Internet? I'm not really sure though|
