Microtel by Wyndham is an international chain of hotels located in different parts of the world, such as the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Philippines. It is member of the Wyndham Hotel Group, a well-known brand in the hotel industry in the Philippines that brings international hotel accommodation standards at reasonable rates. Earlier this month, I was fortunate to have a complimentary 2-night stay at Microtel Inn and Suites by Wyndham at Mall of Asia in Pasay City (Check discounted rates online). Nestled within the highly-developed SM Mall of Asia complex, Microtel Mall of Asia is just minutes away from SM Mall of Asia, Manila Ocean Park, SMX Convention Center, MOA Arena, and Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
In the Philippines, Microtel by Wyndham hotels are located in key cities and provinces such as Baguio, Tarlac, Batangas, Cavite, Boracay, Davao City, General Santos City, Cabanatuan, Puerto Princesa, South Forbes (near Nuvali Sta. Rosa, Laguna), Acropolis (Quezon City), UP Techno Hub (Quezon City), and Mall of Asia in Pasay City (Check discounted rates online).
Upon entering the lobby, I was impressed by the hotel's lovely interiors. The staff warmly greeted us with sweet smiles and assisted us to the reception area.
Since we already have a reservation, checking-in was fast and efficient; it only took us less than 10 minutes and we were given our electronic access key card. We were ushered to our room located at the 12th floor by their friendly staff. I'm happy with their elevator as it is new, state-of-start and quite fast.
STANDARD DOUBLE ROOMUpon entering our room (Check discounted rates online), I instantly noticed the very nice view of Mall of Asia complex, the metropolitan skyline and the Manila Bay peeking at the window.
The room (Check discounted rates online) is spacious and features modern and classy interiors with top-notch facilities and amenities. Our well-appointed standard double room has an array of essential amenities that are needed for a comfortable stay. It has 2 queen-sized beds with chiropractor-approved mattresses that are so soft and fluffy, it is joined to one side by a small bed table with a telephone and an alarm clock; it has fresh clean white sheets, huge fluffy pillows and blankets that compliments it so well. I tried it right away and I felt like I was melting into the bed as I lay my back on it. Very relaxing!
The room smells so fresh, clean and feels very comfortable as there are not so much clutter. Only the much needed amenities are inside the room, which I like. Other features include an individually-controlled air-conditioning unit, a cabinet, a television set with cable channels, a personal refrigerator, a safety deposit box, luggage rack and a small working desk. Truly, every guest will have a relaxing stay here that you'll end up just staying inside the comforts of your room.
The toilet and bathroom has hot and cold shower with rain shower feature. It comes with basic toiletries and bathroom amenities as well. Toiletries such as shampoo, bath soap and dental care are all provided. The body and hand towels are soft and all smell fresh! I couldn't ask for more, it's quite impressive. For me, it is very important to have a bathroom that is clean and well organized. Microtel Mall of Asia did not disappoint me, from the sink to the water closet with bidet, to the shower area, they are all clean and well-kept.
Microtel Mall of Asia has a total of 150 well-appointed air-conditioned rooms. It has three room types (single, double and suite), each having its own character and offers facilities that suit the varying needs of the guests. You can choose a room with a splendid view of the sunset and the Manila Bay or a very nice view of the city.

The buffet breakfast that comes with every booking is also served at Millie's from 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM.
WIFI INTERNET CONNECTIONComplimentary internet connection are available at the lobby, the restaurant and at the pool area. There is an internet socket at the working desk inside the room, but I wasn't able to try it. I'm not sure if its also complimentary. It would be great if free wifi internet connection is available anywhere inside the hotel.
SWIMMING POOLAn added treat to hotel guests is the swimming pool at the hotel's rooftop. Since our room is at the top-most floor, we spent most of our time just lazying at the comfortable chairs at the pool side. That's one of the perks of being at the 12th floor, the swimming pool is a few steps away.
The best time to swim here is early morning or in the late afternoon with the stunning views of the sunset and the Manila bay as your backdrop.
I felt like I was instantly transported in a resort outside the busy metropolis. It was pure bliss to just enjoy the moment and the magical sunset. The sun drowned in the horizon and its rays fill the sky with radiant and vibrant colors, it's like a beautiful painting done in front of me.
FUNCTION ROOMSThey also have function rooms located at the 2nd floor ideal for private and corporate events such as wedding receptions, birthdays, meetings and conventions.
