“AT LAST! Another premium but affordable hotel in Quezon City.”
That’s what I told myself as we’re invited to check out Novotel Manila Araneta Center in Cubao late last year, just a week after its soft opening.
Only a few good hotels can be found in Quezon City, and most of them are too business-y, so having Novotel brand’s first hotel in the Philippines, boasting a fusion of family-friendly and business ambiance is a nice treat.
Located just in front of the famed SMART Araneta Coliseum, and the newly-built KIA Theater, Novotel will serve as home to anyone who would be in for exciting events in these two event centers. That’s aside from its being would-be host to local and international performers who would grace Manila.
But what’s in it for travelers and locals who love staycations?
Definitely a lot. Kristine Facto, the hotel’s communication manager said as she guided us as we check the hotel’s rooms and amenities.
One of the biggest hotels in the area, Novotel Manila Araneta Center has 401 stylish rooms and suites. Novotel is a known international hotel brand with around 473 hotels operating around the world. The brand is known for family vacations, and weekends away but also specializes in meeting and conference room hire. To add to that, it is being managed by Accorhotels, one of the leading hotel groups across the globe.
To tell you honesty, I like everything about Accor, that I signed up (and now a member) of the hotel’s Le Club, it’s loyalty program that offers discounts, promos, and the likes. That’s why I am loving Novotel Manila without a doubt.
Foodies will be treated to experience contemporary casual dining at Food Exchange Manila (check out our experience on a separate blog post), and Gourmet Bar by Novotel. Its trendy Pool and Lounge Bar is also in to giving guests their favorite drinks while chilling out after a busy day.
The hotel also features Premier Lounge, outdoor Bridal Garden, pillarless Grand Ballroom, and seven spacious meeting rooms.
For staycationers and those who would like to commute, the hotel has direct access to LRT and MRT Stations. Shoppers on the other hand could just walk to the Gateway Mall. Our staycation experience on a separate blog post.
Novotel Manila Araneta Center offers an experience and convenience every guest won’t easily forget. Don’t worry about the room rates as it starts from only P4,250. Check out their website here for more details.
