Weekends at the Linden Suites

My family and I were happy to spend 2 separate weekends at the Linden Suites in Ortigas. We took advantage of their promo tie up with Smart that offered its members a whopping 70% off on Linden Suites' 3-bedroom suite/condotel. At Php 6,000, it was so worth it!

Even before we availed of their promo rate last June 12, I was already looking forward to go swimming and dipping in their indoor pool and jacuzzi. I was even more excited for my kids. The last time we booked a room here was when we celebrated Noelle's 2nd birthday in June 2008 and stayed in their standard room. That was the first time we experienced their pool and jacuzzi. In my opinion then, they have the best indoor pool and jacuzzi among the hotels in Ortigas we've checked into and that opinion of mine hasn't changed at all.

So yes, after 2 years, we were back in Linden Suites, this time we were with my brother's family. As soon as the card keys were handed to me, we were instructed to proceed to the other building where the 3-bedroom condotel was located. That meant, we had to pass through the annex. I didn't know that they already have an annex. It was a bit confusing at first because we had to take 2 elevators.

Upon opening the door to our condotel, we were surprised to see how spacious it was. Each of the three bedrooms were equipped with split-type airconditioner. The biggest bedroom had an LCD TV, queen-size bed, study desk and a bathroom with a bath tub. One of the two smaller rooms had a single type bed. I wasn't so sure if that was a queen-size or a double-size bed in the other room. After I requested for additional towels, blankets and pillows which they provided but only 1 piece of each, we spent our whole afternoon enjoying the pool and the jacuzzi.

Because of our enjoyable stay here and the reasonable rates, we recommended the place to my hubby's family. And so after just a month, I found myself emailing the Manager, Mr. Mark Guevarra. He took the liberty to book a 3-bedroom suite for us for an overnight stay. That was a sweet gesture and totally unexpected! I was delighted, to say the least.

July 17 - we arrived at the Linden Suites a few minutes before 1:00PM. We knew the check in time was at 3:00 PM but we wanted to check personally if we could check in early. And check in early, we did! Everybody at the lobby were friendly and very accommodating, from the lobby guards to the front desk staff.

It was the same room we checked into before. After a few minutes, the door bell rang and inside came a bell boy with extra towels, blankets and pillows on hand. All free of charge. Wow! I knew right then and there that we were in (again) for an enjoyable weekend. And oh, by the way, they also granted our request for a late check out - at 2:00 PM. Sweet!
