The Month of the Heart of Winter

the new leaf of January is my Month!

Cebu 2012: Part IV –Hotel Elizabeth, the liveliest hotel in the Pearl City

Our 3D/2N stay in Cebu was made possible because of the voucher I won from Trip or Treats blog last December; in fact if not for this free accommodation at Hotel Elizabeth (take note it’s for four persons) we could have set aside yet again the plan of visiting the Queen City of the South.

Thus I cannot thank enough Ms J. Fernando for running promos every now and then. 🙂

I made our booking as early as March just to ensure the availability of the Executive Suite. Yes, the best part of my winning this time is I don’t need to shed a single cent for us four, unlike in our recent Bora trip where we tog Nanay with us I had to pay a lot for the additional head count. Don’t get me wrong I’m not complaining at all, I am just happy that I was able to share this trip with three of my favorite people with less damage on my savings account.

Anyhow, when we arrive at Hotel Elizabeth in the early morning of Jul 5, we didn’t check in yet hence I had the lobby view all alone. It’s airy and modern. And because its Mediterranean concept is designed by none other than the celebrity artist and interior designer Ms Tess Prieto-Valdez elegance was expected.

The chandelier and hand-painted murals at the lobby –both stunningly beautiful.

Flora Café and Piano Bar sits at the right wing from its entrance hall. We had breakfast at Flora Café for 2 days as inclusion of our stay. My party enjoyed the sumptuous breakfast spread. You can read my post here.

The Business Center

Following our whole day city tour that day, we arrived back at Hotel Elizabeth past 5pm. This time we really check-in, our whole day walking and driving around the city exhausted all the energy I had. That’s what I get from staying wide awake for more than 24 hours. Sigh!

Check-in was a breeze and the hotel staffs were all nice and accommodating. Our suite located at the 8th floor had all the excellent features that made our whole stay comfortable.

Take a peek inside,

The Executive Suite has one bedroom and a living room with sofa and dining area.

This is the exact view of the living room from the entrance.

There is also a writing desk which gives you a scenic view of Cebu Business Park.

And yes, Hotel Elizabeth is just a 2-minutes walking distance to Ayala Mall.

There is also a mini-bar, refrigerator and microwave oven and in-room coffee & tea setup plus complimentary bottled water.

Our bedroom has 1 King size bed with imported lines and duvet. You can smell that the pillows and cover sheets are all fresh so it guarantees a good night’s sleep and rejuvenating rest.

They set-up 2 more single beds to accommodate us four, Leoncio and I stayed at the big bed. 🙂

We have 2 Flat Screen TV with cable channels. One is at the living area.

In-room electronic safe and hair dryer.

The private toilet and bath with hot and cold shower at the master’s bedroom is also equipped with a bathtub which Sam truly enjoyed, vanity kit (includes a loofah) and toiletries were also supplied as well as slippers, bathrobe and towels.

The second bathroom which is located near the entrance door was equally spacious except that it has no bathtub.

By the way, they use electronic key card system too to open the door and power up the electrical system. Telephone and a very cool air-conditioning system were provided to make your stay even more comfortable. Wifi is also available only that it’s pretty slow especially at the master’s bedroom.

With all the amenities we had inside our suite it’s very welcoming especially for us whose all first timers in Cebu.

Oh and by the way, I just notice that our suite had eye-catching wall mirrors all over. 🙂
