Discovery Suites Three Bedroom Suite Staycation

Thursday, April 20, 2017


Discovery Suites Ortigas is one of the hotels I've been eyeing to have a staycation but can't seem to find an available room on my preferred dates. Finally after years (yes years!) of trying I was able to book a three bedroom suite to celebrate my mom's birthday. It has been a tradition for us and even though mom has left us in 2010, we still make sure the family celebrates her birthday.

Tip: Book direct on Discovery Suites Website


I book directly at hotel websites. Based on experience, I always get the best rate, best room location, and additional perks. Discovery Suites gave us a pizza and free wifi connection during our stay. 

Nine Squares of Discovery Special Pizza at Restaurant 5
Me and my family arrived 12nn at Discovery Suites. I was not expecting an early check-in considering that the hotel is fully booked. Sadly, we were also not able to secure the suite at 3pm. It was 30 minutes past check in when we were fetch at Restaurant 5. JonRey (I hope I got the name right) was the one who brought our bag. He greeted me with a warm smile and was sincerely apologetic for the delay. 


Upon entering the suite, I was surprised by the sweet treat on the table, a basket of fruits and the banner welcomed us.


Simple gestures but very heartwarming. They also offered us a late check out to make up for the delay. 

Three Bedroom Serendipity Suite


Our home in Ortigas was a spacious 140 square meters three bedroom suite. The living area can comfortably sit five people. All the bedrooms are equipped with an LCD television but you can enjoy a movie night at the living room. 


It has a mini-component system and a DVD player. The dining area has a 6-seater dining table and  a buffet table.


The kitchen has a cooking stove with oven, oven toaster, microwave, full size refrigerator, coffee and tea making facility, cookware, fine China, glassware, and utensils. There's no dish washing liquid and scrub so make sure you bring them if you plan to use the kitchen. There is also no rice cooker but you can rent one if you need. Make sure that you inform them in advance.


If you've got some work that needs to be done, there's an office desk at the living room. The master's bedroom also has a study table.


The master's bedroom has a king sized bed and it's own toilet and bath. The toilet and bath is a bit small compared to other hotels I've been to but I love that they provide a bubble bath for the tub. I was so worried I wasn't able to buy a bath bomb from Lush. Well thought detail by Discovery Suites!


Our toddler loves water. He looked overdressed for the bath tub because he just finished swimming at the indoor pool located on the 5th floor.


The second bedroom has a queen sized bed, its own LCD television, and a wardrobe closet. It shares a common toilet and bath with the third bedroom.


The third bedroom has two single beds, a LCD television, and a wardrobe closet. We’re a family of habit sleepers and each trip is somewhat of a challenge in terms of getting good sleep. With each hotel we visit the first thing on our minds is whether the two of us, and especially the kids, will find the mattresses good and comfortable enough. With the Discovery suite, that wasn’t an issue, the mattresses are thick and padded with comfy toppers. Bottom line - we all slept like babies.


If you've got kids, Discovery Suites has a huge playroom the size of a two bedroom suite. Our little toddler enjoyed playing here. 

The hotel's swimming pool is small and the water is very cold! But there's a heated jacuzzi if you are like me who can't stand cold water. They also offer free unlimited coffee at the pool area. For the fitness buffs, guests are entitled to unlimited gym access at the Balance Life Fitness Club. The club has state of the art fitness equipment to meet your fitness needs.


Buffet breakfast is served from 630am to 1030am at Restaurant 5. There is a complimentary buffet breakfast for 6 adults for three bedroom suite. If you are staying in a Junior or One bedroom suite, you are entitled to a complimentary buffet breakfast for two adults, and four adults for two bedroom suite.


How would you like your bacon? Crispy or soft fried?


My DIY Pancake topped with chocolate cookie butter, dried mango and apricot, walnuts and strawberry preserve.


Not to be missed is the Chicken Arroz Caldo. Believe me when I say this is better than the PAL's signature arroz caldo at the Mabuhay Lounge.

Overall, it was a wonderful overnight staycation for the family at Discovery Suites Ortigas. We wished we could have stayed one more night.
