I told him about the Crimson Hotel Rainy Day Promo, he tried to book on the website but he was getting a different rate so he just called Crimson Hotel to reserve a room three days before my birthday. I think it is better to call to avail the promo rate.
Fast forward to my birthday, since Alabang is not really that far, we left the house past 12nn. We ate lunch first at home to save money. Hehehe! I’ve seen pictures of Crimson Hotel’s lobby but I was still amazed when I saw it up close. Sa sobrang laki, naging playground ng aking anak while we’re waiting for my husband. I thought we still need to wait till 2PM but they allowed us to check-in as early as 12:50PM. Yehey! The staff ushered us up to the elevator door.
As always, we requested for king size bed but unfortunately, it was no longer available so we settled for twin beds which is too small for 3 persons. But anyway, we love our bed, pillows and comforter. It is one thing I always look forward in our staycation. Comfortable bed and pillows.
Sharing with you the photos of the room.
We stayed in our rooms while waiting for the Afternoon Tea Time which is 3PM, it is included in our package. We’re excited because this was our first Tea Time experience. Lakas makasosyal. We were asked if we want coffee or tea and after twenty minutes they served the three tiered stand of cookies, pastries and sandwiches.
Then we went back to our room because my son wanted to swim. It was long weekend so the pool was already crowded. Good thing that hey have big pool but it was hard for me to look for vacant chair. Yes, as in sa chair ng bar na lang ko nakaupo while holding the towel and other stuff.
We went back to our room to prepare for our buffet dinner at Cafe Eight. They have promo for birthday celebrant, oh yes, I have free dinner. Good thing I have my ID with me that includes my birthday. My son is only 5 years old so he is still free.
This was my first buffet dinner in a hotel so I was really excited but when I entered the almost empty restaurant, I felt so sad because the food selections are very limited. I was checking the food station, I think they only have four or five stations and I was really disappointed.
I’ve tried buffet lunch and dinner in several restaurants, you can check it here and buffet lunch in other hotels like Acaci and Tides so I have high expectations because I know that dinner is more special.
Sabi nga ni William Shakespeare, “Expectation is the root of all heartache”. Hehehe! Imagine, natikman lahat ni hubby ang lahat ng ulam, first time yun ha. Good thing I will only pay P1500 for my husband and free kami.
|My plate. Buti na lang may salmon. I love my mango crepe.|
|Hubby and son enjoyed the birthday cake. Masarap daw.|
|My plate, omelet was not in the picture. I love the walnut twist bread.|
My son had a last minute swimming before we went home.
1. Service is very good. The staffs are approachable, friendly and there’s always smile in their face.

7. Free wifi.
8. Free shuttle
1. No bath tub
2. No laundry bag, I always bring laundry bag every time we travel but because of my last minute packing, I left it a home. I was confident that Crimson Hotel has laundry bag like other hotels but I was wrong because they only have laundry basket. We called to ask if they have laundry bag and they gave us this. Just good enough for the wet clothes.
3. The buffet price is not cheap so I hope they will improve on their buffet spread.
We celebrated our birthdays in other hotels but this was the first time that we received free dinner and cake. We really had a great time in Crimson Hotel.
