If you’re looking for a quick weekend getaway within the metro, there are a lot of hotels that are great for staycations. Some people prefer to check-in a hotel instead of driving out of town to stay at a resort. They prefer convenience and proximity over long road trips.
A few weeks ago, my friend and I decided to book an overnight stay at The A Venue Hotel in Makati. After searching for numerous hotels online, we finally found a location which suited our preference. We chose the one bedroom suite which had a double bed, small living room, kitchenette and dining table.
The hotel rate was quite reasonable considering the space of the room. The A Venue Hotel is built and marketed as a condotel. There are residents staying on the upper floors while the lower floors were offered to guests.
Aside from the spacious room, we picked this hotel because it has two swimming pools. One is an indoor pool while the other is an outdoor pool. Since there were many guests at the hotel during our stay, we ended up taking a dip in the outdoor pool around 8 in the evening because there were just too many kids and adults swimming during the afternoon.
Another reason we liked this location is because it is just beside Century Mall. Plus, there’s a supermarket right across the hotel which makes it very convenient for us. Since we didn’t bring any food, we had to buy our chips, soda, and ice cream at the grocery for our chick flick movie night.
Overall, we had a pleasant stay at A Venue Hotel. I would recommend it for families or friends who just want to chill, relax, and spend some time with each other. It’s definitely a good place for your next staycation.
