MY FAMILY had a taste, albeit briefly, of the “suite life” one weekend in July 2011. Â It was July 9, a day after Marielle’s 8th birthday.
About a month from that particular weekend my sister Kiddo gave us a Gift Certificate for an overnight stay in Peninsula Hotel Manila. Â She didn’t know what she was giving away. Â It was not for an ordinary room. Â It was for a Premium Suite. We decided to use it on the weekend following July 8, Marielle’s birthday.
We did not stay in the Premium Suite, however. Â Guess what? Â We’ve been upgraded to an Executive Suite!!! Â Holly molly wow!
Of course curiosity got the better of us and even while still in Manila Pen, using Manila Pen’s complimentary Super fast Wi-Fi, we googled the rates of Manila Pen’s rooms.
The original Premium Suite costs at least PhP 14,000+++ per room night. Â Wow. But wait, we didn’t stay in a Premium Suite, remember? Â So how much does an Executive Suite cost?
At least PhP 20,500+++. Â WOW!!! Â Even if we could afford it, and we couldn’t, we would not have paid for that room. Â Thanks a lot, Kiddo! Â We love you oh so very much.
