A few weeks ago, I posted about the benefits of owning a hotel membership. Right now, I am very happy with our Manila Hotel Prestige Club Membership so I am going to talk a little more about it for people who might be interested to know more.
The membership costs P7,000 flat for a one-year membership and it comes with the following:
- One complimentary night stay (Full Rate costs around P7,150. The membership is P7,000. You’re already ahead by P150! Unfortunately, breakfast is not included.)
- Dining discounts of up to 50% when two people dine! A great excuse to go on dates. If there are 3 diners, the discount becomes 33%, if 4 diners, 25%, 5 diners or more gets 20% discount. Such a great deal. If you’re not dead set on going to a certain restaurant, why not come here instead? See this post for an example.
- Complimentary buffet for 2 at Cafe Ilang-Ilang. This is easily P1,500-P2,200++ per person, so a total of say, P4,000++? Again, if you add it all up, you’re already getting way more than the P7,000 you spent on the membership! My suggestion is to use this certificate at night and on weekends, since those are the more expensive buffets. I think they also have a bigger spread.
- Complimentary birthday cake. We haven’t claimed this yet, so I don’t know if it’s a big cake or a small cake, but at a previous membership at another hotel, I was given a whole, regular-sized cake from their bakeshop. I would estimate that it’s worth P700-1,300.
- Other benefits (I’ll post the entire thing below), but the ones above are the biggies.
The membership is also fully transferable but not replaceable. That means you can lend it to your brother, your sister, your parents, your friends, etc… In my experience, they are not very strict on how many cards you can use per table. If there are 6 of you in a group, just borrow 2 more cards from other member friends, so you’ll have 3 cards and get 50% off for everyone. And if you happen to be senior citizens? Double great! You can also whip out your senior citizen card while you’re there and get your senior discount on top of the member discount! Just keep track of who’s borrowing the card. Since it is not replaceable, if you lose your card, you lose it and have to buy a new one if you want to continue membership. For oldies but goodies, once in a while, start your day with a great breakfast, or have a great merienda, with great ambience and good service, all for less than half of what it should cost!
If you are interested in getting a membership, please call Stephanie Cabrejas at (632) 5270011 loc. 1108 and let her know that you found out about the membership from BaratAko 🙂
