Staycation - Quest Hotel

On the last two days of 2013, we checked-in at Quest Hotel. It is located at Cebu Business Park, just a few cartwheels and a back flip away from Ayala Center.

The hotel lobby/reception has a low ceiling but they made up for the play of mirrors to create an illusion of space.

Mirrors, mirrors on the wall.

This is the hallway that leads to the lifts. At the right is a life size poster (or I don't know what's it called) of Kris Aquino.

The view from our room. Forgive the pants as it was unaware of me taking photos.

The vanity table, full with our mess.

Twin beds?! It turned out that there were no more other rooms available so we settled for this room because we want to take advantage of the special discount rates of the holidays! Little did I know that even on Christmas and New Year's holidays, demand for hotels in the city are high even for local tourists.

We had to push the other bed against the wall for Amber's safety. The bed was designed for one person which gave me a not so good night's sleep considering I was sharing it with an active toddler, even when asleep. So the next night, we combined both beds to one.

The room hallways in our floor are filled with black & white photos of seashells. The subtle lighting added some luxe.

Puso Bistro & Bar. For Buffet breakfast, food selection are many but average in taste.

Again, my love for danggit dictates the need to shout out that it was served too brittle. It bothers me that hotels in Cebu can't find a decent supplier for danggit knowing this is a local delicacy.

There are two pools located at the 7th floor. The small one could pass for a jacuzzi due to its size (depth is suitable for kids). The other one, not that big, tends to get crowded at some point. Kids usually play in the pool while the adults lounge around.

The hotel, barely two years in operation, is clean and the service was nice. The furniture leans towards modern without looking too masculine.  I was actually surprised about its interior because from the outside, its facade looks residential. But I guess that's the whole point. Quest Hotel, after all, is a hotel and condo.
