At the moment, we're at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Cebu City which is adjacent to the big mall of SM City. We checked in yesterday noon and my wife and I were amazed at the amenities of the hotel. We're billeted in a very cozy room with a big and fully furnished bathroom. Connecting to the internet via WIFI was a breeze. It's been a while since we have stayed at a hotel like this. We used to spend a few days at Marriott Hotel with our daughters for a few days in summer while they were still in school. We were then enjoying a 50% discount as employees of the bank which had some interest in the hotel. We're spending two nights here at Radisson where the reception for the wedding of my wife's goddaughter will be held tonight. We just finished breakfast a while ago and it was a very sumptuous one indeed and reminded me of the breakfast buffet at the Emerald Hotel in Bangkok where I stayed some years back while attending a forum. After breakfast, my wife and I toured the grounds of the hotel including the beautiful swimming pool and I took some pictures of the wonderful views for remembrance of our stay and to show them to our daughters who will be coming home in October. We're taking some rest at the moment and proceed to the wedding venue after lunch and come back here for the reception. Happy Sunday everyone!

I'm not sure if they would have time to surf the net. Doing so might cost them their jobs.

@sunrisefan don't they have lunch breaks, too?

@hereandthere I'm sure they have but as to using the hotel's internet, I'm curious too if they're allowed.

Yes, we had good memories of Marriott, especially our daughters. Even now, Marriott continues to send me email updates of promos and offers around the world. We liked Marriott because we only needed to walk a few steps to the Ayala Center.

@hereandthere So we don't worry too about getting a taxi ride back to the hotel even if it's at the mall's closing time already because we just need to walk a few steps.
