Because our annual Christmas family get-together on my side of the family was postponed to New Year, our small family of three (hubby, me and son) had nowhere to go and no celebrations to attend on Christmas Day, so hubby just booked us a room at Conrad Hotel for an overnight stay.

We simply couldn’t resist having our family pictures taken at the lobby of the hotel as it looked so Christmassy!

Conrad Manila is a 5-star hotel located in Pasay City near SM Mall of Asia. Hotel room rates go up during the holidays, so we weren’t really surprised that our bill was a little bit more expensive.

The official mascot of Conrad Hotel is Carey the Carabao.

Guests are given a Carey plushy toy as a welcome gift. For some reason, we got two. Teehee! A housekeeping employee handed us our second mascot plushy after we have returned to our room post-dinner.

Father and son immediately felt at home in our Deluxe Room.

Conrad Manila has a total of 347 rooms, all air-conditioned. All rooms have an MP3 docking station, a minibar, a 42-inch cable LCD TV, Wi-Fi, an executive desk, a phone, and a safety deposit box.

The minibar has snacks, alcoholic beverages, and tea- and coffee-making facility.

While the minibar was loaded, we actually didn’t touch anything from it since we went out after we got settled in our room. We went to SM Mall of Asia to have dinner and later hung around at S Maison.

Our room also has a separate toilet and shower with complete hotel toiletries.

We can see Conrad Manila’s lovely pool from our hotel room. I actually looked forward to dipping in that gorgeous pool, but fate wouldn’t have it, as I had my monthly period as soon as we entered our hotel room. I guess because I couldn’t swim, father and son didn’t feel like swimming, too. Sigh!

Breakfast the following day was served in two different locations located on the same floor. The main restaurant serving breakfast was jampacked, and we were led to the smaller venue. There was nothing extraordinary about their buffet breakfast, though. I actually wished they have more food choices to offer their guests. I wasn’t quite sure if the restaurant actually had more food offerings than where we opted to eat. The good thing is the place wasn’t crowded, so we had a relaxed dining experience, which provided a very good start to our day.

Overall, Conrad Manila is a beautiful hotel, and we would definitely love to come back!
