Marco Polo Plaza Cebu | Hotel Review

When DH and I attended the relaunch of SuTuKil Isla Sugbo Seafood City event in Cebu last February, we extended our stay and booked an overnight stay at Marco Polo Plaza- one of the 5-star hotels in Cebu City.

PNB Credit Card has an on-going promo (until December 15, 2016 only) with Marco Polo Plaza Cebu where cardholders are entitled to 15% OFF on rooms based on available rate and an upgrade to the next room type.

Prior to availing the promo, DH and I experienced in difficulty booking a room. One of the operators we talked to told us that the hotel was fully booked- it was Valentine's Day ; p Another one told us that there was no room available upon hearing that we will be availing of the PNB Credit Card promo. It took DH perseverance (he called several times at random hours) and maybe sheer luck to finally book a room ; p

We were able to get a 15% discount and a room upgrade with breakfast for 2 and Continental Club Lounge access for only Php 6,390.91 net (inclusive of 10% Service Charge, 12.75% VAT and Local Government Tax). 

We almost always end up with a parking lot as our view from our room ; p

We were booked at Room 1723- a Continental Club Sea View Room. As part of the special privilege of staying at Continental Club floor, we enjoyed special benefits like private check-in and check-out located at the Roof Deck (see the rest of the features below).

Continental Club Room Features:

  • 32" LCD TV with Cable

  •  In-room Safe

  • Complimentary Wi-Fi Access

  • Mini Office

  • Coffee and Tea making facilities
  • Mini-Bar

  •  Toilet and Bath

  • Penhaligon Quercus

I was delighted to see the Penhaligon- a luxury British brand known for its perfume line. Closely scrutinizing the bottles, the lotion was already expired. I requested for more bottles but the expiration date had already been erased ; (

  • Bath Salts

Club Lounge Features:

  • Personalized Check-In and Check-Out Services
  • Complimentary Daily Breakfast
  • Complimentary Coffee and Tea throughout the day
  • Complimentary Cocktails
  • Complimentary Pressing and Laundry Services
  • Complimentary use of the Boardroom and Conference Room
  • Packing and Unpacking Services

  • Complimentary Fruit Tray

Marco Polo Plaza Cebu looks dated and needs improvement in terms of upkeep of the hotel. The management should start with the lighting at the lobby. The eerie dim lights gave me a creepy feeling.
