We've been frequenting Discovery Suites Ortigas since our first staycation in 2014. It's our family's favorite venue for celebrations.
Earlier this year we celebrated Little V and my sis-in-law's birthdays in a weekend staycation with families from both sides. We checked in on Saturday, had a birthday lunch on Sunday, and went home on Monday. Our little family and my in-laws got the 3-bedroom suite while my side of the family stayed in a 1-bedroom suite (my siblings were not available to spend a night at the hotel).
The 3-bedroom suite is spacious at 140 square meters, giving us plenty of room to move about.
The living area has a lounge sofa, coffee table, cable television and a mini component.

The suite features a Master’s bedroom with a king-sized bed and its own toilet and bath (this is where the bath tub is). The second room is furnished with a queen-sized bed and the third, two single beds.

Since we were a big crowd and didn't want to dine out, the great cooks in the family prepared us sumptuous meals. It was great that the Dining and Kitchen facilities included a refrigerator, stove, oven, complete cooking and dining implements, microwave, and a coffee and tea-making machine. Savings! Ka-ching! Ka-ching!

The rest of our family came over for Sunday lunch and here's a picture of us.

Happy birthday, Little V!
Tip: Accommodation only includes breakfast. To save (specially if you are a big group), do your groceries in Megamall or Robinsons so you can cook in your suite.
