Times have changed and hotels have been mushrooming almost everywhere. From the low-rise in sprawling lots to high-rise and modern types. Each hotel must have something new, something different, enticing promos and whatnot in order to get a potential client’s attention to try out their services.
For someone who has worked in the hotel industry, I have learned how to go the extra mile to please a guest and for them to have a more memorable and wonderful stay.
As a hotel guest, it’s not enough that I have delectable spreads. What I (and what most customers) need is a clean hotel, a clean room, close proximity to most establishments and of course, a very competent staff… and it was a joy to find out that Crimson Hotel in Alabang has all that.
Let me show you what Crimson Hotel – Alabang has to offer.
Lobby, Reception, Concierge and The Lobby Lounge on the 8th Floor
The Lobby LoungeBut more than just having a big lobby, this can also be a great space for guests to relax and have a cup of coffee or afternoon tea. The Lobby Lounge beside the reception has a nice view in the evening and they also provide music by way of a lounge singer at night. Perfect for winding down with friends and family.
Welcome DrinksNot all hotels offer welcome drinks nowadays. This simple gesture is what I always look forward to whenever I arrive at a hotel to check-in. Kinda makes you feel at home right away. (Photo courtesy of www.chuckiedreyfus.ph)
Executive Lounge (28th Floor)This was where our express check-ins were processed. This area can only be accessed by guests who have booked an Executive Suite. Also a nice spot if you want to have an afternoon snack or some evening cocktails in a more quiet and private place.
Amenities (28th Floor)
Swimming PoolCrimson boasts of adult and kiddie pools with lifeguards on duty. I noticed that the lifeguards were really strict when it comes to the safety of the kids. That’s a plus factor for us parents!
My husband and I, together with our eldest son, are gym rats. I made sure to check if Crimson Hotel has a gym by visiting their website the night before our staycation.
We tried their gym a few hours after lunch. The place had fully equipped cardio and strength machines with certified gym instructors on duty that always check-up on us. Crimson’s fitness center is open daily from 6am to 9pm. It can also be open 24 hours upon request by hotel guests.
Towels and water for you to use.
Here is a short video of me with my man and my boy.
Grand Ballroom and Meeting Rooms
Apart from your lifestyle needs, Crimson Hotel – Alabang has a ballroom on the 8th floor that can accommodate up to 300 persons for any occasion you could think of. During our staycation, I wanted to check their ballroom but it was booked (the ballroom is on the right side of this picture). They also have a Business Center located on the same floor equipped with facilities and offers a wide range of services.
And of course, the Suite!
We were given a spacious 2-room suite on the 27th floor since we have 2 kids.
The wonderful room features the following:
2 separate bedrooms with king and twin beds, in-room safe for the Master Bedroom, two-line speakerphone with voicemail, LED televisions with cable channels, DVD players, workstations and ergonomic chairs.
This is most definitely your home away from home. Everything you could possibly need is provided for. I knew from the moment I entered the room that it will be a most pleasant experience. Considering how sensitive and allergic I am to dust, I did not sneeze and didn’t get runny eyes during our entire stay. Meaning? Our suite was well cleaned and the carpet was vacuumed. Good job!
But apart from the their modern amenities, Crimson Hotel – Alabang boasts of their delectable spreads from breakfast and lunch buffets to their BBQ dinner buffet serving International dishes.
You can have your crepe customized, too. Just like ours!
During lunch, the husband asked if they had brown rice but there was none readily available. To my husband’s surprise during dinner, he was approached by a kind staff and asked if he still wanted brown rice. And there, he was given one. That’s what I call amazing service! Two thumbs-up, Crimson Hotel!
