Marriott Hotel (Pampanga)

Clark Marriott Hotel has just opened this September 2018 and we were invited for an overnight staycation in this luxurious haven. 

The beacon of hospitality, Clark Mariott Hotel is located at the central business district of the country's fast-rising megalopolis and Asia's next aerotropolis--Clark Freeport Zone. The first and only 5-star hotel in North of Manila is the most accessible destination for entrepreneurs and travelers with a short 5-minute drive from Clark International Airport. 
It has 260 well-appointed rooms and suites with contemporary designs and local touches giving it a distinct and vibrant aesthetics. It has five restaurants and bars to satisfy guests' discerning palates. 
We stayed in the Deluxe Room (I was with Bettina and Jen) which was about 40sqm. The room is spacious, the beds and pillows are very comfy and I just love how cozy it is to stay here. 
There are complimentary drinks, robes, slippers, iron, laundry services/bags in the room. There is also a safety deposit box (which I was not able to take a good photo). I love their laundry bags--I love the texture. I forgot what the cloth is called, though.
The room has a television with high-definition cable channels. I was able to watch the marathon of DC movies on HBO. (Can you guess when we stayed here?)
There is also a complimentary welcome snack that awaits you in your room. In-room dining is also available. 
The bathroom is also spacious. Hot and cold water is available as well as complimentary toiletries. I love the scent of their soaps and shampoo--very calming. The only downside that I can say, though, was that they don't have a bidet. 
The view from our room is also very calming. A view away from the toxic urban area. 
We were also able to have a glimpse of their Vice-Presidential Suite and Presidential Suite. It's very spacious and sophisticated. A place where big-time celebrities stay when they are in Clark.

A fun, social, and buzzing atmosphere with great views, perfectly-blended drinks, and innovative bar snacks.

HIgh-end Korean specialty restaurant that has two private dining rooms featuring Japanese teppanyaki where diners can grill their meal or have it done by chefs at built-in tabletop barbecues. Its beverage menu offers an array of premium wines, beers, sakes, and crafted soju cocktails. I will also be talking more about Smoki Moto on another blog post.

It features crafted beverages with a 5-10-20-minute 3-meal menu program which lists immediate delivery (snacks) in five minutes, social sharing (bar food) in 10 minutes, casual entree (lounge-friendly meals) and miniature desserts in 20 minutes.

Enjoying the view. I definitely had an amazing experience here at Clark Mariott Hotel. The food was great; the staff are accommodating; the room and amenities really did let me unwind; I had an amazing massage at Quan (it was so good--this one is "bitin," though). Special shoutout to Jesse Mendoza for taking good care of us. Definitely recommending this place if you wish to stay at Clark.
