This is just one of two hotels (at least the only ones I can think of) in the metro that is adjacent to a shopping mall, and the only one that has a one-bedroom suite. The one-bedroom suite is of utmost priority as we were checking-in with our son's yaya (nanny). :-) We have always enjoyed walking in and around the Eastwood Mall.
We would assume that all one-bedroom suites are corner rooms. Ours had a view of the park/fountain-- very nice view. This was requested as we didn't want a room facing the Marikina River.
Our room had elegant and simple furniture and colors. The biggest disappointment though was having a mere queen-sized bed and not the expected king. It IS, after all, a suite room. Hmmmm. This is a first time for us to see a four (or is it five?)-star hotel without centralized air-conditioning. Had to adjust the two wall-mounted units' temperature frequently as it took a while for us to figure out how to change it. (There's this delay in the remote control's display.)
Have read so much criticisms about the slow and not-free internet connection. We paid P500 for the one-device-at-a-time 24-hour wi-fi. Connection was surprisingly fast. ;-) No complaints there.
Not a wide buffet breakfast selection offered at the brightly-lit Eastwood Cafe, perhaps due to space constraints. But they really could have made it a special one-- it was Christmas Day.
It was a hassle-free check-in and check-out for us. We took their advice (sent as phone message) of early settlement of our room charge. Paid for our room at 10 AM, and just had the room checked at exactly 12 noon by a room attendant.
Keep it up, Eastwood Richmonde. :-)
