Weekends fly by so quickly, and making the most of them is quite a challenge. The best way to notch your weekend is to come up with a plan that’s both time and cost-efficient. Recharge from a whole week’s worth of work in a relaxing staycation in the city where you can save yourself from spending money for toll fees and gas, and time for long travels and packing. Just find the best deals on hotels in the city, and stay, play, and spend some quality time with the whole family.


Weekend Steals

Catch Discovery Suites Manila’s Weekend Steals, and get up to 46% OFF on suites. For as low as PHP 4,500 nett, you’ll have your own Premier Junior Suite for yourself that comes with a hearty breakfast buffet. If you’re bringing your kids along, stay in a spacious One-Bedroom Suite for only PHP 5,000 nett, that comes with its own living, dining, and kitchen areas. On Saturdays, the kids can drop by the children’s playroom and join the special activities prepared just for them.

Going Around

Right at the doorstep of Discovery Suites Manila in Ortigas is a wide range of things to do and places to visit.

Count how many steps it would take to get to The Podium across the street. There, you’ll find practically anything you might want to find—fashion pieces, jewelry, make-up, health and wellness goods, and even home and lifestyle products. If you’re planning on cooking up something in your in-room kitchen, you can get everything you need at their supermarket.


A few more steps and you’ll get to one of the biggest malls in the city. Go around SM Megamall where you can spend your afternoon shopping, dining, or watching the latest movies. You can also enjoy various activities with the whole family such as bowling, archery, and ice-skating.

A short walk to the left from Discovery Suites would take you to El Pueblo. There, some restaurants, a barber and custom clothing shop for men, and a music hall and pub await you. If you’re up for some booze and music, head over to 12 Monkeys where various local artists are featured every night.

The streets of Ortigas Center are well lit and easy to navigate at night. So if you want to go further and explore, you’re in the right place. A few blocks away from Discovery Suites, you’ll find the Sapphire Bloc, where some restos and pubs are lined up. Pick your spot for the evening, or crawl from one to another. It’s really up to you.



Staying In

Nonetheless, if you prefer staying in. Kick your shoes off and bask in the comfort of your soft white bed. Catch up on your favorite series on Netflix and order some room service to go with it. Take some time to unwind in an afternoon dip in the pool or a sweat session at the fitness center.

Come dinnertime, you won’t need to get out of the building. On the 22nd floor is Discovery Suites’ flagship restaurant, 22 Prime, well-acclaimed for its sumptuous steaks. If you’re dining with the whole family, try the famous Prime’s Tomahawk for everyone to share. Their Porterhouse and Signature Steak Platter are just as delicious. So don’t stress too much over choosing which one to get!

With a proper plan, you’re sure to make the most out of your two-day break. What are you doing this weekend? Perhaps now is the best time to decide.

  • 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.”

  • 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.”
