“Consider it a lucky day, Dennise surprised me when she told me that I have a room upgrade to Executive Suite…“
I recently booked a last-minute best available room in Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria for an overnight stay during the last long weekend of the month through HotelQuickly app using the Free Nights booking reward.
It was my first time spending overnight at Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria and this wouldn’t be made possible without the HotelQuickly app.
Front desk officer Dennise Gallardo was simply accommodating from the start of our conversation. I showed her the booking confirmation on my device and she asked for my identification card and processed my room’s availability, immediately.
I asked her if I can take a photo while she processed my account. She said yes but reminded me that she’s too shy to face the camera. I just had to take a candid shot of her at the reception desk.
Consider it a lucky day, Dennise surprised me when she told me that I have a room upgrade to Executive Suite along with its amenities and free WiFi connection. It was a non-smoking room and I don’t mind at all.
That sounds great. Really. Dennise also mentioned that as an IHG member, I will be given a complementary breakfast at The Club Lounge on the 19th floor.
I was surprised to hear the great news. It was clear on the fine print information when I chose Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria that WiFi and breakfast wont be included on my Free Nights booking. I was already prepared for that. I can use my Globe data anyways, so it wont be a problem for me. Next, there are a lot of fast food stores, like McDonald’s and Jollibee, and convenience stores near the hotel.
Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria is a actually a perfect place for guests staying in the Ortigas Centre area. Robinsons Galleria mall is just beside the hotel.
The Executive Suite was way to good for me. I felt a sense of being part of an elite club as soon as I saw this huge room. It’s the Executive Suite, man! There’s two flat LED TV, a business center with a very comfortable sofa set. There’s a king sized bed properly placed in the bedroom divided by a wooden panel from the living room. The bathroom is huge. Toilet is located away from the shower room which is adjacent to a perfectly sized bath tub.
From the 12th, I enjoyed the view of the Meralco-Ortigas ADB streets. I felt like a boss!

Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria HotelQuickly Experience
I had a wonderful overnight stay at Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria. It was a dream come true for me. From the room, the service, and the people from the front desk, they’re amazing.
The experience was worthwhile. I love the TVs. I enjoyed watching two different shows at the same time while lying on the king size bed. I was glad that I was able to catch up with the first episode of Heroes Reborn in the evening that was shown earlier that day while I was outside.
The WiFi connection had some minor glitches like frequent disconnections that I have to connect several times to their server to access Internet inside the room. But it’s not a big deal. I still had a wonderful stay at the hotel. and with that, I’ll give Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria a perfect 5/5 score.
All of these things happened through the wonderful rewards from HotelQuickly. I am very satisfied of the service that I received from HotelQuickly. Best of all, it’s free.
A lot of my friends have already installed HotelQuickly on their devices and some of them became curious when they saw me using the app and posting Instagram photos of my overnight stay at Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria.
If you’re reading this and you haven’t installed HotelQuickly, I suggest you must. Don’t forget to redeem my promo code JMANI6 and you will receive PhP 600 credit which you can use for your next weekend staycation.
I’ll give HotelQuickly app a fabulous 5/5 ratings.
