The Linden Suites | Staycation and Halloween Party
The Linden Suites is strategically situated near mega shopping malls, recreational centers and multinational company offices, at the heart of Ortigas. Linden Suites has a total of 168 guestrooms with room categories ranging from Deluxe to three bedroom suites. The hotel is known for having spacious rooms, and to date, they are continuously enhancing facilities.
Last month, we got to experience the posh hotel. We also got to attend Linden Suites’ annual kids Halloween party. All guests who book from October 21-28, 2017 were able to score complimentary tickets to the Halloween party. It was my Olivia’s first. We dressed her up as Harley Quinn and my nephew, Deandre, was The Joker.
At the registration, we were given cute ID’s. Afterwards, we had our photo taken at their photo booth. My husband managed to take these behind the scene pictures. Here are some snaps of other families as well.
The kids were oh so adorable in their costumes. There were Spiderman, Supergirl, Bumblebee, Wonder Woman, Batman, Iron Man, Captain America, Maleficent, Star Wars characters and more. Of course, this is The Linden Suites, so apparently, the winner of the best costume received an amazing prize – a stay at Linden. WHOA! I know, right? So generous 🙂 I got to talk to the mom of the winner before the party started and she’s sweet. Her kids, Stella and Chelsea are really cute. Her older kid, Chelsea, was the winner, dressed up as Star Trooper.
The party was filled with fun and games. There was also a mind boggling show by GMA 7’s Nomer Lasala. Just look at how curious and focused the kids are (of course, the adults, too hehe). He showed some magic and mental tricks. He even went around after his show to read the party attendees and parents’ minds.
Of course, what’s a party without food? We had spaghetti meatballs, fish finger, apple crumble, sandwich, ice cream and juice.
Before the party ended, the kids (and parents) had a meet and greet with, none other than, Spidey. He showed moves like the real Spiderman. He even gave a jar of treats to every single kid.
After the party, the kids went around the hotel for trick or treat. They hopped from department to department and each gave a bag full of loots. Here’s a photo of my nephew and a Front Desk Officer dressed as a wolf.
THE STAYCATION PART
The Linden Suites stands by their flagship – spacious rooms. We only had a deluxe room but it is definitely huge. We had a queen and a single bed and, still, there’s a lot more room for us to move freely. We had two kids with us and both of them kept on running and moving around. I didnt have to worry about them tripping because the floor is carpeted.
The desk my husband got to enjoy. He comfortably edited our videos for our Vlog and he was able to finish it in a matter of an hour.
Thankfully, we managed to take photos of the kids being still haha. Olivia was enjoying the view from the 16th floor while her kuya rested on that comfy chair.
Things that make my heart melt – sweet notes. To top it off, Linden Suites provided complimenatry teddy bears and jars of popcorn. How thoughful’s that? This kind of gesture greatly affects the guest’s satisfaction. Guests love to feel acknowledged and valued.
That’s me, enjoying my mug of coffee on the cozy chair before going to bed. (Yes. I drink coffee even before going to bed hehe)
Guests get complimentary buffet breakfast at The Happy Chef. However, in our case, dinner was also covered (thank you, Ms. Krisha)
These photos were taken during our dinner. Upon entering, we were greeted by the friendly F&B staff. The ambiance is inviting and warm. We sat by the windows so we can take advantage of the view of Ortigas Center.
Look at Olivia, seems like she’s also thinking of what to order haha. Mr. Ronald, the Captain Waiter himself, served us. He’s accommodating and prompt.
We ordered Siomai, Spinach Soup with clams, Greek Salad with feta and balsamic reduction, Hickory Smoked Baby Back Ribs (Happy Chef’s best seller), Spaghetti alla Carbonara with cream, egg, Italian bacon and parmigiano.
I love all the food we have ordered especially the baby back ribs and mashed potato. The mashed potato had the right texture with a butter-y taste. The baby back ribs was so tender that I was able to cut portions out using only a fork with a single hand. The ingredients are fresh and quality is definitely top notch. The dishes are absolutely mouth-watering and gastronomic, plus they are not pricey. Will definitely go back soon. Perfect for date nights or eating out with friends and family.
FACILITES AND STAFF
Aside from the suites’ kitchen facilities, guests can also enjoy the heated indoor pool, gym and sauna.
Another thing that completed our stay is the hospitality of the staff. They’re all courteous and professionally competent. At the Front Desk, Ms. Rica checked us in and Ms. Mhel checked us out. They were both friendly and accommodating.
I wanted to share my “mom brain attack” after checking in haha. So, after settling in our room, I searched for my ID that I have presented at the reception, and to my surprise, I wasn’t able to find it in my wallet. So, when we headed down for the Halloween Party, I approached Ms. Rica (the one who checked us in) and asked her if she still has my ID. She looked for it, but did not find it. I was advised that she’ll look for it and get back to me. We then headed to our room. Some time after that, I managed to find my ID in my bag. A little later, I got a call from Ms. Rica saying that I have placed my ID in my bag. Apparently, they played back CCTV footage just to find my missing ID. Aww Jahe (sorry, guys). I have caused inconvenience because of my “mom brain”. But see, this scenario shows that staff and management will go the extra mile to meet the needs of the guests.
I highly recommend The Linden Suites especially for parties or gatherings since they have really spacious rooms and suites. We’re actually thinking of celebrating my and Olivia’s birthday (since our birthdays are literally just hours apart) here next year to accommodate our extended family members.
