Manila is known for its hustle and bustle—big crowds, long queues, not to mention traffic that takes forever. But miracles do happen in Manila, and they happen once every year—Holy Week. That’s right, if you’re wondering when it’s best to visit the metro, come right over this March. As majority of the city’s population heads out to their respective hometowns or out of the country, the city becomes the most peaceful. Even better, what stays are the best hotels and best restaurants in Metro Manila that will surely give you and your family the most relaxing, delightful time.

Planning Ahead

With everyone looking for a nice place to spend Holy Week in, you don’t want to end up nowhere at the last minute when all places have gone fully booked. It’s best to plan ahead. If you’re looking for the best hotel deals for Holy Week, Discovery Suites Manila in Ortigas is offering a special 3-night stay rate starting at PHP 13,000nett. No need to drive long hours. Like we said, Holy Week in Manila means zero traffic. So unless you’re leaving town, why don’t you check-in to a nice, spacious suite where the whole family can relax? A 3-night stay would be a great idea. After all, the whole week is yours to enjoy! If you wish to stay just for a night, you can also book a suite for as low as PHP 4,500.

Considering the Kids

For most of us adults, long naps and good food would suffice for a getaway. But for the little ones, a little (or maybe a lot of) fun is necessary. That is why Discovery Suites has prepared egg-citing treats and games for the kids this coming Holy Week. From arts and crafts to Easter egg-hunting and games, we’ve got you covered. Our little guests can join the many activities throughout the week. Of course, loads of goodies and treats await!


Looking for Places to Eat

While many restaurants or food outlets might be closed, looking them up online is as easy as ABC, so be sure to check before hitting the road. Or visit 22 Prime, just at the 22nd floor of Discovery Suites. 22 Prime serves the best steaks and specials in the area. If you’re observing Lent, delightful Lent-friendly specials are also available for you to enjoy. So if you’re staying in Ortigas or anywhere nearby, feel free to have a delectable family meal at 22 Prime this Holy Week. If you’re staying at Discovery Suites, even better! All you have to do is press an elevator button.

Holy Week is a time to retreat, relax, and spend time with our families. It’s coming up and will have arrived before you know it! Have you made your plans yet?

22 Prime Intimate Gatherings






  • COZY AND HOMEY. This was our 6th or 7th stay and the staff is still very accommodating. The location is strategic being right beside convenience stores, mall, and restaurants… I can say we plan to make it a habit to greet the new year here.”

  • OUTSTANDING AND FRIENDLY SERVICE. The service at the facility is outstanding from arrival to departure. Any thing you ask for is done promptly and with a smile. The gym is pretty good with all the requirements of a hotel gym, with sauna, personal trainers and group classes.”

  • COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I stayed in the Discovery suites hotel for 7 weeks in March and April while in Manila for work. And it was very easy for me to start calling it home after a few days! The location is great – podium mall across the street, Starbucks next door and across the street, megamall and Robinson’s galleria only a couple of blocks away.”
