The EDSA Tower houses residences which have been refurbished with new furniture pieces while the kitchen and entertainment amenities were also updated. Residences located in the Ayala Tower (categorized as "Suite Residences") were completely renovated from floor to ceiling and updated with modern furniture pieces and residential appliances. During my most recent stay, I requested to view residence units in both towers and in my honest opinion, I didn't see any striking difference in terms of design and furnishing.

  • In-Room Breakfast - Guests who do not have breakfast buffet included in their room package may opt to order from the in-room dining menu. This is a great option for those who prefer light breakfast. This is also a time saving option for business travelers who are on the rush to catch morning meetings. Serving time is about 30 minutes. You may also order a day in advance and have your breakfast served on your preferred time the following day.
  • Cook Your Own Breakfast - The beauty of staying at Ascott Makati is the convenience of having your own fully-equipped kitchen at the comfort of your private residence. This is also a more economical option than ordering in-room breakfast. This is however more time consuming and may not be ideal for business travelers who are traveling alone.

Metro Staycation Hack: If you are on a weekend staycation at Ascott Makati, I suggest that you cook your own breakfast when you wake up in the morning and spend the rest of the morning enjoying the swimming pool with the family. By 10:00am, you can then have your breakfast buffet at Myron's. You have until 11:00am to enjoy the buffet. There is rice, noodles, and a variety of hot dishes which can already be your lunch for the day.

I have always loved it every time I stay at Ascott Makati. Online reviews about Ascott Makati are quite a mix of good and not-so-good, but I personally have had consistently excellent stay experience here at Ascott Makati. The residences are well maintained and still look fresh as if they were renovated not too long ago. The guest facilities are also outstanding, mostly at par with, and sometimes even better than, the five-star standards of many hotels. The staff are generally nice people, very helpful and efficient.
