The Novotel Suite Life

Novotel Manila Suite Room

Novotel Manila stands tall with 24 floors of luxurious amenities beyond what most hotels offer, one could even say Novotel Manila is a hotel resort. They have the basics and extras, guests have 3 dining outlets to choose from; the spacious buffet at The Food Exchange, The Gourmet Bar with its refined menu of carefully crafted dishes to simple bar chow to complement their alcoholic concoctions, a large outdoor Lap Pool surrounded by numerous lounge chairs, a kiddie pool, a rooftop garden, a fully-fitted Children's Playroom featuring a pall pit, a spacious gym with all the necessary equipment to keep you fit, an amazing spa with private message rooms with en suite bathroom and for those who booked club rooms / suites you get exclusive access to the 24th floor Premier Lounge with expansive views of the Metro, unlimited non-alcoholic beverages from the fridge all-day, afternoon tea snacks, evening Hors d'oeuvre (light evening snacks), and generally a pampered experience. 

Welcome Drink at Gourmet Bar

The Suite Life at Novotel Manila starts with a welcome at the Premier Lounge where guest check-in with ease and privacy, for those chauffeured by the hotel car from the airport expect a flawless in-room check-in, it's the fastest way to get on the bed of Novotel. During my stay I was in no rush as stay-cations are usually relaxed, which gave me time to experience the entirety of the service. I came at my own time and the experience is just as good.

MY EXPERIENCE

I walked-in the lobby and went straight to the nearest available receptionist, showed my reservation and identification, shortly after I was escorted to the gourmet bar for a welcome drink, while I wait for my suite to be read. I came early than the indicated 2PM check-in time, but they accommodated me with question. After an hour of sipping, chilling, and refilling (also complimentary) I was informed that my home for the weekend awaits.
