I was fortunate enough to be blessed with a free accommodation at Midas Hotel and Casino through being a Zomato food/restaurant reviewer. Of course, to make it a lot more fun, I invited my sister and closest girlfriends to join me for a night of relaxation and girl-bonding.
I remember Midas Hotel that it was Hyatt Hotel which I’ve been to before. It was renovated and re-branded a few years ago. It is located along the service road of Roxas Blvd. just beside the Japan Embassy. It’s easily accessible and transportation to Midas practically easy. It is just 5 minutes or less away from SM Mall of Asia and the business districts in Pasay City and Manila City.
Although they do not have a grand drop off area like most top hotels in Metro Manila, their lobby is quite majestic. I love the high ceiling and the huge open space with the orange (maybe representative of gold) and the sparkling decors.
In every place that you go to, the lobby always sets the mood for your visit or stay; and Midas Hotel’s lobby gave me a great preview of what I am to experience for our staycation. You can find a café, a boutique, the front desk and the entrance to the hotel casino at the lobby area.
What I enjoyed the most though were the unlimited supply of bacon! I mean,who doesn't love bacon? Although the bacon that they served was on the crispy side, it was ok too even though I like my bacon fried just right.
This is where most VIPs lounge around, have their buffet breakfast/lunch/dinner. I don't know why we didn't visit it the night that we were there, since it says on their website that guests from the executive rooms can go here. But after our breakfast, my friend and I checked it out and no one's there actually besides the staff. I didn't asked if we can have our breakfast there since were staying at one of the executive rooms. Anyway, I took photos of the lounge and by the way it looks, it is really fit for VIPs and businessmen who wants to have a quieter place to stay while at the hotel and outside of their rooms.
We also had to ask for ice cubes several times and they always delivered. Also, only 2 complimentary water were given as part of the accommodation, so we called if they can send us up a pitcher of regular water, instead of giving us one, they sent over a couple of bottled mineral water. Moreover, there wasn’t any hair dryer available inside the room but when we asked for one, a few minutes later a staff showed up at our door and handed us one.
Truly, if a weekend was well spent, it brings a week of content. That weekend was great! I got to spend it with a bonding sesh with my lovely friends/sisters, doing all sorts of crazy and fun stuff, a lot of catching up and shared laughters. Thanks for making it happen Midas Hotel and Casino!
