Holiday Inn Manila Galleria provided us a wonderful 2 Twin Premiere Non-Smoking room overnight stay experience to celebrate Father’s Day, that falls on a Sunday, last June 21st. The room comes with Buffet Breakfast at Fab Restaurant, which is located at the 4th floor, Holiday Inn Manila Galleria. It was our first time to stay in Holiday Inn Manila Galleria, which is a part of the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG).
Check-in usually starts at 3PM. Me and my son arrived an hour earlier and we were welcomed at the reception as soon as I’ve mentioned the reservation made under my name. It took only less than 5 minutes and the lady on the front desk handed me over our room key-cards.
After signing the fill-up form, me and my son took the elevator and went up to the 7th floor, where we spend the rest of the night at Rm. 702, after we visited the ToyCon Philippines 2015 at the SM Megamall; dined at My Singapore Food Restaurant; and watched Jurassic World at the SM Cinema 3. Our room has twin bed with an overlooking view of ADB Ave., Ortigas Center.
ToyCon Philippines was full packed when we got there. Thanks to Azrael Colladilla, who is also one of the organizer, for giving us a free pass to the event. I thought I would never spend a single centavo at ToyCon but as soon as we saw DC and Marvel comics up for sale in one of the participating booths, I ended up paying for 9 comic books of Green Lantern and HULK.
I took my son to My Singapore Food Restaurant where we had our dinner before we went watching Jurassic World. I had a high expectation for Jurassic World but sadly, the 2015 follow-up to Jurassic Park trilogy never came close to the first three films when it comes to a convincing story-line.
Anyways, that Father’s Day activities were very convenient and enjoyable for me and my son because we would never had made it that far if we weren’t able to book a hotel for the overnight stay. We had our breakfast the following day at Fab enjoying plates of tuyo, dangit, bacon, and garlic rice. We also had pancakes and fruits for dessert.
We love the atmosphere in Holiday Inn Manila Galleria. Though the elevator service was a bit slow, it’s like a go-between luxury and comfortable ‘homey’ feel type of hotel.
