Birthday Staycation at Sheraton Manila Club

I’ve been browsing my digital albums and I noticed that for the past three years, sa Sheraton hotel lang pala kami nakapunta #hotelstaycation. Three years ago, I celebrated my birthday at Sheraton Manila and several months after that, we had a staycation at Sheraton Manila Bay. And recently, my husband celebrated his birthday at Sheraton Manila Club

Since Sheraton Manila is just across NAIA 3, I suggested to my husband na doon na lang siya magbirthday. He wanted to have a beach trip pero hindi pa kaya ng powers ko magbeach after our long trip from Norway. He did not say yes immediately because he was still checking other options. After few days of thinking, he informed me that he already booked at Sheraton Manila using his points. 

My husband booked the room only so no breakfast. And because of this, we already planned where are we going to eat our dinner, breakfast, and lunch. Fast forward to our stay, when the staff learned about his birthday, she/he upgraded our room to Club Room. Check-in time was 3PM but since the room was ready, he was able to check in early. Wow! By the way, a credit card or cash deposit of PHP5000 is needed. 

Staying in a Club Room entitles guests to have access to Sheraton Club and here are the privileges of club guests. 
  • The Sheraton Club is open from 11AM to 12MN 
  • Complimentary buffet breakfast at the S Kitchen from 6:30AM to 10:30AM 
  • Hors d’oeuvres from 5:30PM to 7:30PM 
  • All-day coffee, tea, and sodas, with dry snacks from 11AM to 12MN 
  • Cocktails and desserts from 5:30PM to 8:30PM 
  • Complimentary use of computer workstations with internet access (on a first come first serve basis)
  • Basic Business Centre Services: photocopying, facsimile, printing, and scanning. 
Our arrival is still late in the afternoon so my husband went to Sheraton Club and enjoyed the complimentary snacks while waiting for us. I just called my husband when we already got our luggage and from the airport, we arrived at the hotel after 9 minutes. There is a hygiene kit, welcome fruit, and cake. 

I prefer this room kasi mas maliwanag but I don’t like the bathroom. Hindi ko talaga type yung mga open, semi-open, see-through or translucent na bathroom. I don’t know if it is already a trend kasi ganyan din experience namin sa Narra Villa of The Farm at San Benito, and Chateau Hestia Room.

I wanted to take a rest but when I checked the time, past 6PM na pala. We don’t want to miss the “Hors d’oeuvres” so we immediately went to the 10th floor. 

My son and I only experienced Sofitel Club Millisime and walang hors d’oeuvres doon so we really took our time trying the foods here, I love the hot dishes served in small bowls. I can’t recall the name of each dish, but there is chicken, pork, fish, and beef. Aside from that, there are cold cuts, cheeses, salad, desserts, soup, bread, and drinks.

After our hearty meal, we went back to our room to freshen up and rest. This was our view outside the room. 

We overslept so it was almost 9AM when we arrived at S Kitchen, good thing that the buffet breakfast ends at 10:30AM so we still have time to enjoy the breakfast. Since we were late, may mga food na naubos na, like champorado na naghintay pa ako ng refill. Also, I was looking forward to “Paluto” that I’ve experienced three years ago pero wala na pala ngayon. Anyway, we still enjoyed our breakfast at the S Kitchen, ang tagal ko ng nagcrave sa Filipino Foods. 

We went back to our room and we found a birthday cake. This is small compared to their complimentary cake before but no complaint. It is the thought that counts and nahirapan nga kami ubusin yung dati so mas okay yung ganitong size. Masarap din ang chocolate cake nila.  

Since we had brunch, busog pa kami for lunch so we just had snacks at Sheraton Club. The buffet spread is limited lang so we ate cookies and fruits, and we had drinks before going to the pool. 

Check-out time is 12NN but they allowed us to stay until 4PM so we had time for quick swimming at Vega pool. We had our late lunch at Oori Korean Restaurant, I will blog about that in a separate post. Overall, it was indeed a good birthday staycation. #eatsleepandrepeat
