Royalty in Crown Towers Manila

We’ve been to City of Dreams before and because of the not so good experience we had, we still want to give them a chance and celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in one of their hotels : Hyatt, Nobu or Crown Towers Manila. Among the 3 of them, only Crown Towers Manila has 6 stars. They have the biggest suites, bigger elevators and a wider hallway compared with the other 2 hotels. Crown Towers Manila caters more to the VIPs and businessmen while Nobu and Hyatt’s guests are usually checking-in for pleasure and fun. We will compare their interior, rooms, amenities and facilities on my other posts that you can read here.

Before making my final decision, I had to contact each of the hotels’ call centers (open from 9am-9pm) to compare the amenities, facilities, food and their service. To be honest, many of them cannot answer most of my detailed questions but I have to commend everyone for being patient and nice to me. There were times that I was speaking with their receptionist and front desk personnel because their call center is already closed but they were still patient and they tend to know more than their call center agents.

I’m a “hard-to-please” guest and I will make your ears sore and bore you with my questions; but among the 3 call centers, Nobu and Crown Towers Manila got my heart. In times they can’t answer my questions, they call me back. I can see that they are putting too much effort just to assist me so I decided to just find the answers on my own by staying in either Nobu or Crown Towers.

I chose Crown Towers Manila simply because I had more questions left unanswered from them and I don’t see any detailed blog posts about their suites and amenities. I am curious and I want all of them to be answered. When we stayed there, I wasn’t disappointed. All of my questions were answered and they even exceeded all our expectations. Maybe it’s good that most of my questions were unanswered. It made me clueless and expect less from them. Now Crown Towers Manila can hire me as one of their “customer service representative” because I already know a lot about their hotel. 😅

Because of curiosity, I also requested for a tour from their management and they granted it. We had the opportunity to have a tour in their 3 hotels with the beautiful Nadine. I will post all about it soon.

Let’s start with Crown Towers first. We had a very good experience in this hotel and I can go on and on and on about how perfect our stay was. I was overjoyed from our experience that you can’t stop me from bragging about this hotel.

The hotel has 2 towers. Their elevators need a card key to access it. Privacy, exclusivity and safety is too important in this hotel (City of Dreams as a whole). If you don’t have a suite/room in their towers, you cannot go up on their building that easily. Before entering the hotel premise, guard dogs are waiting in the entrance of the hotel to sniff on your luggage and guards are very strict in checking on the cars that pass by in the vicinity.

They are also very strict when it comes to the maximum people allowed in the room and their facilities. Once you reach the maximum person allowed, you are supposed to pay for another room that the exceeding person needs. Each exceeding person who wants to use a certain facility needs to pay an extra charge. In this way, privacy and security is prioritized. This is a rule that I have to agree with. Aside from the building code, it is one way for the hotel to make sure that their rooms, facilities and suites are well taken care of by the guests who stay in the hotel.

Tower 2 has the regular rooms :

Resort King and Double Queen: approximately 36 sqm

Resort Studio : approximately 50 sqm

Resort Suite : approximately 74-82 sqm (it doesn’t have a separate living room yet).

While…

Tower 1 has the elegant, posh and big lobby, bigger hallways and elevators. Here are their “special” rooms and suites :

Deluxe King and Double Queen : approximately 53-56 sqm

Premier King : approximately 66 sqm

Premier King
Premier King

Executive Suite : approximately 102-103 sqm

This is our room.

Once you enter, you’ll see a powder room with toilet, sink, towels, soap, lotion, huge mirror, and its own phone (with a soft ringing sound). Great for OC guests like us who don’t want to share our restroom with our visitors. Or it’s as simple as you want to use the bathroom before going out and right after you go in.

20150602_172924-1.jpg

After the powder room is a dining area with a couch, big dining table and 2 comfy chairs. Their interior and furniture is elegant and posh.

The chandelier is just too perfect.

On the side is a cute decor and near it is a buffet table with complimentary water, cup and saucer, plus a Nespresso coffee and coffee machine.

CYMERA_20160728_194016.jpg

There’s also an ashtray with matchstick and a cute tea set. They provide a lot of cups, glasses and utensils so there’s no worry to lack any.

20150602_173018

Their coffee and teas are too perfect to ignore. It comes in different flavors and intensity. I never had any palpitation from the Nespresso coffee.

20150602_173035
In the buffet table are wine, noodles, utensils, cork screw, Twining teas, and the Intimacy Kit. 😘

20150602_173125

The fridge is conveniently hidden inside the wooden cabinet. There are refreshments, chocolates and liquor. For convenience, a price list is placed near the fridge as well.

20150602_173140-1.jpg

It also has a separate living room with a huge and comfy sofa, big TV, DVD, large curtains (pool view), and a Cisco phone with your name on it. The side table with phone ALWAYS includes a pen and paper handy.

2015-06-04-17-17-04-1.jpg

The coffee table has a magazine on top and guests will receive a newspaper every morning inside a bag that looks like this.

20150603_095803
With this kind of set-up : the newspaper bag and the Nespresso coffee — all the news in the paper may seem to be good news after all.

CYMERA_20160728_192947.jpg

All their huge TVs have a personal greeting with my name on it. Everything is just too personal. The TV is perfect for an OC guest like me. Their channels are separated according to their category : movie, kids, foreign, news, music, religion, etc. You also have an option to choose TV or movie (pay per view). In my case, I had to read their messages from the TV over and over again then remember God’s goodness in our lives for the past 10 years.

Believe it or not, our children preferred watching the video about the other Crown Towers hotels worldwide. It made them calm. Our bigger boy even told me that he wants to visit ALL of Crown Towers’ hotels. Well it seems like they’re already a Crown Towers’ fan.

20150603_125559

They don’t have a balcony but they have floor-to-ceiling glass windows which has a pool view.

20150602_173952-1.jpg

They have an electronic control of the sheers, drapes, and lights. I love the idea that they used yellow lights all over the room. According to facts, yellow lights tend to remove the flaws on your face. Plus, yellow light is very romantic. 😍

2015-06-04 17.15.27
Our son takes good pictures already. 😊
I'm really tired at this point but the lighting made everything perfectly imperfect.
I’m really tired at this point but the lighting made everything “perfect.”

Crown Towers Manila didn’t spare any peso in giving us the best of the best pieces of furniture, lights, coffee machine, paintings, carpets, etc. They gave it all out for their guests. Everything’s perfect in this suite. The bedroom has huge and tall bed with comfy pillows and thick comforters. It also includes a comfy throw pillow and spotlights on each side.

20150602_184151
The bed is customized according to your request or needs.

Note : We didn’t request for this. We just mentioned that we’re celebrating our anniversary and we were surprised to see this on our bed. The bedroom also includes a couch and 2 side tables beside the bed with lamps and a Cisco phone (again with the guest’s name on it).

20150602_1837111-1.jpg

In the bedroom is a huge TV, menu for their in-room dining, a book about City of Dreams and Crown Towers (in Chinese and English language) plus a comfy desk chair.

2015-06-04 17.24.33
Many TVs mean more channel options for the kids and the parents. 😉

2015-06-10-19-42-35-1.jpg

On the way to the bathroom is a dresser where you can put on makeup and dry your hair.

20150602_183049
Just be careful when putting on makeup (since they’re using yellow light), your makeup might look different once you go out of the room. To make sure, take a look at the magnifying mirror (with white light) in the bathroom. 😊

There’s also a closet with hangers, iron and ironing board.

20150602_182736

Inside the closet are slippers, sewing kit and their lil shoe shine kit.

20150602_182936

20150602_1827261-1.jpg
There’s also a safe for you to keep your jewelries and other valuables.

There are plastics and paperbags in the drawer. You can use this to keep your dirty clothes.

When we saw the closet space, we immediately put out our clothes and hung them on the closet’s rod. There’s also an umbrella inside (which you can’t bring home) and a lot of hangers in the closet.

The suite has a bathroom with a big and deep bathtub that fits 2 people inside. 😍 There’s a sliding door (cannot be locked) that separates the big bathroom (dresser/closet area) from the bedroom for privacy. Disclaimer : Close the sliding door or the tub will call your name. 😁

20150602_181933-1-1.jpg

The 3rd TV can be found here. Disclaimer : Once you go in, you can’t go out because you’ll regret it your whole life. 😂 The TV, salts and scent will make it harder for you to leave the tub. You can call your butler to prepare it for you.

2015-06-10 19.40.49

Call your personal butler to do something like this :

CYMERA_20160728_204701-1.jpg
Our butler still looks professional even while preparing our tub. 😅
That's what a butler does. Turn a simple tub to something extra romantic.

Thanks to our ever artistic and pretty butler who did this for us. Crown Towers staff really put their best and give excellence in everything they do. 👏 for the lady butler who made this.

Their bathroom is well-lit. It also includes a magnifying mirror with white light. There are his and her sinks, toiletries, towels, flower in a vase, robes and a weighing scale.

Toiletries from Antica Farmacista : Lotion, Shower Gel, Shampoo, Soap and Conditioner.

I usually bring my own toiletries when I go to a hotel. I was never interested with the hotel’s toiletries; but this is the first time that we were able to use everything. We weren’t able to use our own toiletries at all. 😆 I love the smell and the effect of the shampoo and conditioner to my hair. I didn’t have hair fall nor a sticky hair.

My look after taking a bath.

Now I’m looking for this brand here in the Philippines. Because of them, we get to know this brand and they successfully introduced it to us.

20150602_1824251-1.jpg

Everything you need is basically here. I shouldn’t have brought a toiletry bag if I knew about it. 😅

20150602_182120
On the left side is the shower (hot/cold) area, place where you can actually sit or put your things, and a mat so you won’t slip. You have the option to remove the shower head in times you need the water closer to you. I love how Crown Towers prioritized their guests’ safety by providing a mat. On the right side is the toilet area. You can find the phone, trash can and tissue containers inside. It is also well-lit with frosted glass doors.

Hotel H2O has this as well but you can be seen clearly from the outside. So for me, Crown Towers still has the best bathroom ever. Tip : Outside these doors are rods that you can use as a handle to open/close the doors and a place to hang your wet towels.

20150602_182506-1.jpg

They gave us lots of towels, 2 robes and 2 small glasses that can be used for brushing teeth. Everything is well-organized and squeaky clean. I checked everything and they definitely passed an OC guest’s standards.

Deluxe Pool Villa : approximately 145 sqm
