Last February and early March, we took advantage of Citibank Philippines’ promotion that offers 50% off published room rates at Holiday Inn & Suites Makati. Our family likes staying at Holiday Inn because aside from being affordable, they are very family-friendly – kids always stay and eat free! We usually book a club room with access to the executive lounge since we find it convenient and sulit (worth the money). Booking on this rate lets us check-in at an earlier time and fuss-free (no need to queue), and check-out at a much later time so we do not need to hurry when it’s time to check-out. Aside from that, we can get refreshments all day, have afternoon tea and evening cocktails on the executive lounge.
Holiday Inn & Suites Makati has its executive lounge on the 19th floor (club floors are 18th and 19th floors). Although it’s not as spacious as other hotels’ club lounges, it’s comfortable enough for families to enjoy snacks on weekends or for individuals to have work done during the weekdays. They offer an assortment of refreshments – sodas, juices, coffee and tea and light snacks like cookies, nuts and chips- ALL DAY!.
The lounge serves pastries and sandwiches which pair perfectly with coffee or specialty teas. My husband and kids loved the cookies, Mika munches on those sweet little things with cold milk. Afternoon tea starts at 3:00pm to 5:00pm
During high tea my kids just usually ask for milk or mango juice while I get some tea. The lounge has a variety of Dilmah teas, from English Breakfast to Strawberry Ceylon tea (which you can ask to be served iced!). Espresso-based drinks can also be ordered from the staff, if you prefer coffee over tea. Here are some more pastries that they serve.
Every 6:00pm to 8:00pm the lounge offers cocktails and a variety of hors d’oeuvre for guests who want to chill out with a few drinks. This is the only time the children – or teenagers under 18 are not allowed inside the lounge. Salads, breads, cheese and finger food are available for guests to consume. There’s also plenty of white and red wines, and other alcoholic drinks that you can order. I do not have much pictures since we do not go to the lounge during this time because the kids cannot go with us.
