A few weeks ago, I went on a solo trip for the first time in my life. I didn’t plan on going anywhere for the next several months but my company asked me to go to our Cebu office, so of course I went. Who wouldn’t say yes to the free flight and accommodation? 😀 Sadly, my itinerary for my 3-day revolved around the office and my hotel so I didn’t get to tour around Cebu. I want to share in this blog post my experience with the hotel which was my sanctuary for the 3 days I was alone.
Upon arriving via taxi from the airport, the hotel staff immediately helped me with my single piece of luggage. One of them was kind enough to lend me money to pay the cab because the driver didn’t have any change for my money. I paid him back when I was able to exchange my money at the reception. With that alone, my first impression with Quest Hotel was very good 🙂
I arrived very early so I waited in the lobby for my check-in. I could tell that the hotel was very used to having tourists and businessmen as their guests. Their wi-fi was very strong and fast throughout the hotel so I was able to work while waiting.
I was informed that there was a gym and swimming pool at the hotel but I didn’t get to see them both 😦
They allowed me to check-in early at 11 AM without additional costs. Their usual check-in time is 2 PM. I claimed my key card at the reception and headed to my room. The staff offered their assistance but I refused because I only had 1 luggage anyways.
Upon entering, I immediately knew that everything I would need is already within the four walls of my room. The bed was huge and super inviting, but I reminded myself that I still had work for the day.
After I set up my work area, I explored the rest of my room.
The bathroom was complete with towels, toiletries and a hair dryer which I didn’t use.
My room also included a mini bar, closet, locker and coffee/tea-making facilities.
If I had to find a fault in my room, it was the welcome letter on the bedside desk – it was addressed to a different person. LOL. But it wasn’t a big deal because of the complimentary snacks beside it.
I enjoyed my room so much! If I had the choice, I would’ve worked here to whole time. LOL. The wi-fi signal is great. I was able to work smoothly and even take conference calls via Skype in my room. Continue reading
