Weekend staycation at Discovery Suites Ortigas!

Last Mother’s Day, Discovery Suites Ortigas invited our whole family over for a staycation. This is actually our second time staying at this hotel, the first time was back in 2008 — I wasn’t even blogging back then.

Discovery Suites OrtigasI wasn’t quite sure what to expect since 7 years had passed. We checked in Saturday afternoon.

Discovery Suites OrtigasSurprise #1: We were given a Serendipity 3-Bedroom Suite on the 14th floor. The last time we stayed here, we were in a Junior Suite. Wow, it was like having our own luxury condo for the weekend. We were amazed by how big the space was. There’s a living room and a study area…

Discovery Suites OrtigasSurprise #3: A pillow menu! This is a unique service we tried during our stay at Discovery Suites Ortigas. A lady came knocking on our door with a rack piled high with pillows. There are orthopedic pillows, antibacterial pillows, extra soft pillows… I swear they have whatever type of pillow that tickles your fancy.

Discovery Suites OrtigasSurprise #5: I went back to Mother’s Day gifts from Discovery Suites and my family when we went back to retire after dinner at 22 Prime (will post about it separately). My hubby and kids wrote me letters and I got a big bouquet of red roses, the most delicious chocolate cake covered in fondant, and a pencil sketch of me beautifully gift-wrapped. 😀

Discovery Suites OrtigasWhen we woke up the next morning, we went down to the fifth floor for breakfast at Restaurant 5. The swimming pool area is located next to the restaurant.

Discovery Suites OrtigasRestaurant 5 had a breakfast buffet spread set up. There were cereals and drinks (milk, juices, coffee, tea, hot choco).

Discovery Suites OrtigasThere was a salad bar with cold cuts and cheeses.

Discovery Suites OrtigasI had an omelet made at this station.

Discovery Suites OrtigasThere was pork adobo and garlic rice as well as the usual breakfast fare such as sausages, bacon, bread, pancakes, fruits, yogurt, etc.

Discovery Suites OrtigasI loved the combination of these roasted tomatoes and mushrooms.

Discovery Suites OrtigasAfter breakfast we visited Discovery Suites Ortigas’ playroom for kids. It’s filled with toys and games to keep the most active toddlers engaged. There’s actually an adjoining room where older kids can play video games.

We checked out by Sunday noon. Thank you so much Discovery Suites Ortigas for making it a really memorable Mother’s Day weekend for my family and I! I really was not expecting all the surprises, I think it’s the most anyone has ever done for me on this special day. 😀

You can avail of the Serendipity 3-Bedroom Suite at Discovery Suites Ortigas at a rate of P13,300 per night, which comes out to a little over P16k after taxes. Considering it can accommodate at least 6 people comfortably, it’s very reasonable. The hotel’s location is good too since it’s right in the heart of the Ortigas business district and you only have to cross the street to get to the mall (The Podium). It’s a stone’s throw away from SM Megamall too.
