A “Grand” Staycation at City Garden Grand Hotel Makati
“Make It Grand”
We all want to have time for ourselves and loved-ones, where we would only feel recreation, pampering, revitalization, and satisfaction once (or twice) in a while. I have never stayed in a 4-Star hotel in Makati City, and my first at City Garden Grand Hotel has set the bar high, with overall service being world-class, and food selections being amazingly superb!
City Garden Grand Hotel is the FIRST 4-Star Hotel of the City Garden Hotels Group, a top choice for business and leisure travellers seeking accommodations in the Metro Manila’s liveliest city. Situated in the heart of Makati City’s Business District, the hotel is a 15-minute drive from Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
The hotel is delighted with its 311 well-appointed rooms and suites that provide all that a guest needs for a grand stay. Each room is designed with a seamless interplay of Narra hardwood, floor-to-ceiling glass, marble, and onyx stone. The room also features amenities that every traveller can appreciate such as a 500-thread- count duvet, hypoallergenic pillows (with goose-down pillows available on request), independent-line high-speed internet connection, high-definition LCD TV, IDD/NDD calling, welcome amenities, and more.
Checking in at the reception area was a breeze. I was happily greeted by the front desk staff, and they all gave me warm smiles and positive aura that we usually expect as guests, but (at times) not always get. Well, that’s an easy and wonderful start!
Seeing the numbers (and smiles) above makes you more excited to go up to your room and start your staycation journey!
Lots of room for hotel guests who with free fast Wi-Fi, while pastries and snacks are also available for sale so you won’t get bored (and hungry) while waiting for your loved ones at the lobby.
After I was given my room key and provided with special instructions about my meals – very important 🤣, I headed to my room and was (LITERALLY) really satisfied, not only because it had a fantastic view, but because the room had so much space, it could fit a whole family (of around 5) + a little extra room for friends for a very affordable and competitive rate.

You could just imagine yourself being in this room, where every amenity and finishing are A-Grade. I sensed that the Hotel puts a lot of value for guests because you will have a lot of room area/space! Lots of room for your luggage, room for your kids to play, and enough room for your visitors to comfortably relax. The room ambiance oozes earth tones, and that’s a good thing! especially for me, since I am a backpacker, I really appreciate the minimalistic approach to hotel room design, not sacrificing quality and affordability.
As soon as I saw the bathtub, I already wanted to hop in and have a warm soak (even if it’s already hot outside the hotel haha) and just relax for the first few hours. Well, that didn’t happen! because I got a surprise from the hotel management!
Well it ain’t my birthday I’m pretty sure of that, but as soon as I removed the cover from the plate, I saw a slice of cake and a greeting! How thoughtful of them 🙂 and mind you, the cake slice was absolutely delightful! Thank you, City Garden Grand Hotel for the sweet welcome!
Everything inside my room was a visual treat. Including this panoramic view of Makati City through super high glass windows. I’m actually afraid of heights, so I had to compose myself before I took this shot (remote) haha.
