Holy Week is upcoming! If you haven’t decided where to spend the long weekend yet, how about considering a staycation at Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila? We wanted to rent a hotel room or condominium unit near our office to celebrate our friend’s bachelor party. We’re all girls and he’s the only male in our team. A surprise party days before his wedding would be fun, we thought, and we were right! It took months to finalize the details and agree where to book. At last, Citadines in Ortigas Center topped our team’s poll. Here are photos (before the event started) and a short review of the place.
Review of Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila (Ortigas Center, Pasig)
Citadines Millennium Ortigas is home to 293 guestrooms. All are tastefully furnished, and many even provide such comforts as scale, sofa, towels, separate living room, and desk. The property offers fantastic facilities, including fitness center, outdoor pool, garden, to help guests unwind after an action-packed day in the city.
We stayed in the 3-Bedroom Deluxe Apartment for one night only and had a good time. Equipped with a private bathroom equipped with a shower, the bedrooms are plush and snug but in classically simple patterns and textures: crisp pleats, crisp folds and crisp lines. Beige and browns dominate the elegant spaces, and the artworks on the wall portray a nice touch of creativity. Abstract art mixed in with modern pieces creates a great soft cozy look.
The kitchen opens up to the dining area, designed without any unnecessary frills and complete with electric appliances that can be conveniently used for cooking.
The living room looks sleek, with white walls, gray sofa, light stand fixture, and cabled HD TV. It’s a good section to converse with people, play games, watch TV shows, or just chill.
Overall, this deluxe unit in Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila has an easy-on-the-eye palette that’s ideal for those looking to opt for a contemporary yet relaxing setting while in the busy city of Pasig (near many corporate offices, malls, restaurants, and other lifestyle centers). We definitely felt at home and comfortable with its easygoing and welcoming vibe. I recommend staying here for a get-together with friends, staycation with family, or a short vacation from the rigors of daily life. It’s a peaceful, zen-like, and stylish space.
