Anniversary-Worthy Hotel in Makati: Best Western, A.venue Suites

It has been more than a year since Rubel and I celebrated our 6th anniversary at Best Western, A.venue Suites (December 2013). I would've blogged about it sooner. But time just got the best of me! 

Anyhow, we splurged a little bit on our 6th year together, and decided to stay for two nights at Best Western, A.venue Suites. It was a good thing that Rubel had a discount.

The check-in was a breeze. All I did was sign some papers, and I was soon ushered to our room. I came on my own to check us in, as Rubel was still at work at the time. So I was left to do everything on my own. Nonetheless, I enjoyed my time alone. I was able to eat lunch at A. Venue, and was able to do some grocery shopping at SM Marketplace for our weekend food stock. I also ordered some take-out from Chihuahua Mexican Grill & Margarita Bar for our late dinner, which we enjoyed eating that night.

Burritos and Chili Con Carne from Chihuahua Mexican Grill, matched with our favorite Asti Martini. :)


Rubel availed a One-Bedroom Studio Deluxe for our weekend staycation for just P3,400 a night. The 30-sqm suite is equipped with a kitchenette (no access to pot and pans though), dining area, separate receiving area, flat screen cable television, queen size bed and bathroom with hot & cold shower. Towels and toiletries were also provided.

Our room rate also included the following: 

· Complimentary buffet breakfast for two persons at Granvia Cafe
· Wi-Fi access 
· Use of the infinity pool and fitness center 
· Bottled Mineral Water (replenished daily
· Daily Newspaper (available upon request)

I felt so relaxed despite being confined in the room for several hours. I even fell asleep during the day, while waiting for Rubel to arrive. The bed was just so comfy, and the pillows were so plush! Even the bathroom exuded such a refreshing vibe.


Did you know that BEST WESTERN PLUS Antel Hotel has the largest pool in the area of Makati City? It's a fact! And if you're checked-in, you can swim from 7:30 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. An indoor pool and a kiddie pool are also located at the 4th level of A.Venue Tower, while an outdoor pool and a jacuzzi are situated at the 5th level of The Serenity Tower.

The water was cold for both days that Rubel and I swam. But we tried swimming in all the pools regardless of the drop in temperature. 


The buffet breakfast at Granvia Cafe was delectable. We enjoyed what they served, which was a fusion of Western and local cuisines. The food was also presented in a cozy and sophisticated dining facility. You can also request for breakfast staples like egg, which can be cooked according to your preference.

Granvia Cafe is located at the 4th level of A. Venue Suites, opens daily from 6:00 A.M. until 11:00 PM.
