A Weekday Staycation at The Linden Suites in Ortigas

Last week, we enjoyed a staycation at The Linden Suites in Ortigas, courtesy of the hotel- it was a prize from the contest I joined last year when we stayed there in early December. I got first place, so the reward was an overnight stay at their 2-bedroom suite (for four people), complete with buffet breakfast at The Happy Chef. 🎉

Awesome treat. Thankful for it. Today, I’ll show you around our suite. 

Arrival and Check In at The Linden Suites

Check-in was easy because we went on a weekday. There’s a 2,000-peso security deposit for incidental expenses during your stay (if any).

Upon entry, I was glad to see how spacious the living room was. The view from there was perfect too. There’s a dining table for four, a full-length mirror for your outfit check, a comfortable lounge chair, and a couch in front of the TV if you want to watch your show.

There is also a small study desk in the corner if you want to read a book or write in your journal with some privacy. It’s the perfect writer’s nook.

As for the kitchen, it has a built-in induction cooker, a regular-sized fridge, as well as plates and cutlery for four. There is also a coffee maker with a pack of coffee grounds (for 2-3 cups).

Now, let’s go to the equally spacious master bedroom- which I love. It has a queen bed, a full-length mirror, an executive desk, a TV set, and cabinets.

You can see Megamall and ADB Avenue from here. It provides a great view of this section of the business district. I love the view. I grew up in this city and have seen it develop over the years, but it feels different viewing it from a higher ground than walking in its streets.

The other room has two single beds, a vanity table, and a bathroom with another bathtub; this is where my family stayed when they arrived late at night.

Hotel Facilities

As for the facilities, they have a lot. They have dining, swimming, wellness, and parking facilities. There are also function rooms available for business conferences or events.

We went swimming the same afternoon we arrived, and I must say, I totally enjoyed the temperature-controlled pool and jacuzzi with the city view. We didn’t try it the last time we were here, so we stayed for an hour. 

They also have a health club. 

The Health Club

The Health Club is where you can hit the gym, enjoy the sauna, or get spa treatments (9th floor). It’s a great place to relax and unwind.

Breakfast at The Happy Chef

For breakfast, we went to The Happy Chef early. Classic Filipino favorites were served and the food was good. After breakfast, we went back up to rest a bit more while waiting to check out. I also had a soak, then watched the movie Margaux.

Staycation at The Linden, a great way to start the year


  • Booked guests are entitled to one (1) parking space;

  • There is a convenient store outside the hotel's main entrance;

  • You can also go through the back and cross to Pearl Drive for more dining options;

  • Note that moving of furniture isn’t allowed- you could get fined with a hefty amount for that (read the fine print when you book). 

Overall Experience

I highly recommend this hotel for couples and families. It’s good to be in a convenient location and have a lot of space when you’re on a quick staycation (or are working remotely from a hotel).
