3 great reasons to celebrate at the classy Holiday Inn in Makati

    Our experience at the Holiday Inn Makati

    Khris and I have not yet booked an overnight stay at Holiday Inn Makati. We have been here for her team's year-end celebration because of a productive and fruitful year, as well as Christmas party.

    We booked a package that included a function room and a buffet dinner through Deal Grocer when they had a promo. 

    It was really a practical choice considering that it was Holiday Inn Makati. Best of all, we had a great time and we enjoyed every bit of our time at Holiday Inn.

    Reasons to celebrate at the Holiday Inn Makati

    If you are thinking of a nice hotel in Makati where you can celebrate a special occasion, then consider Holiday Inn. Here are some of the best reasons to do so: 

    1. The food is good

    One of the most unforgettable aspects of our experience at the Holiday Inn was the food. The dinner buffet included soup, salad, Japanese food, chicken, pork, beef, fish, pasta, roast vegetables, and dessert.

    The food was really flavorful, unlike other similar dishes served in other hotels. The servings were also big and could absolutely satisfy even those with huge appetites. We were around 15 people and by the end of our buffet dinner, we were all happily stuffed.

    It was definitely worth every peso. We particularly enjoyed the roast beef because it was tender. The gravy that came with it was also good. I also liked the roast mixed vegetables as well as the lechon kawali.

    As for dessert, there were fruit slices and pastries. The brewed coffee was unlimited, which I liked to pair with the sweets.  

    2. There is no big crowd at the Holiday Inn

    One more thing that we liked about Holiday Inn is that it does not get too crowded. I know there are bigger hotels in Makati City but they also get really crowded because they are popular event venues for conferences and business forums.

    It's not really an issue to have many people walking around but it's always welcome when there are only a handful of people in the hotel lobby or the function room areas.

    3. The service is impeccable

    Good service always contributes to the overall impression of any establishment. It completes the whole experience, so to speak.

    The service staff and personnel at Holiday Inn were commendable for helping us out and for accommodating our requests as long as it's still within the scope of the package that we bought. What we couldn't forget was that the food was quickly replenished as soon as a serving tray becomes empty.

    Furthermore, the utility personnel was also kind enough to help us with the technical set up in the function room,

    Our verdict

    All in all, it's easy to recommend Holiday Inn Makati to those who are looking for a fairly affordable package for a group event or family celebration. The food was delicious, the hotel interior was nice, and the service was fast and efficient.

    We were not able to try the rooms though. Hope we could have a staycation here one of these days. From the promotional photos and write-ups, it seemed like one could get a good view of the Makati cityscape from Holiday Inn.
