Marco Polo 2011

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 31, 2011

The hotel has seen better days and its cost-cutting measures were obvious – from the rough toilet paper to the missing hand towels, complimentary bottled water and newspaper. Some of the marble bathroom tiles were pockmarked, and the lavatory had a crack. When the hot water was turned on, the shower pipes vibrated violently, which caused the light over the tub to turn off by itself. There is no free wifi access – not even in the dining room or lobby. Internet wifi access costs P538 for 24 hours and P264 for an hour.

On the plus side, the hotel has commenced refurbishing at the 4th floor. More importantly, it has maintained the quality of its service (except perhaps the doorman). Our requests for towels and ice cubes were promptly attended to. Front desk profusely apologized for the shortcomings, and all over you can sense that the staff are eager to please their guests, especially the staff at Cafe Marco. As to the doorman. I travelled with a small child, so I expected the doorman to be attentive and hold the door for us. He failed on three occasions.

only 5 Star Hotel in Davao City

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 17, 2011

very nice since this is the only 5 star rated hotel in Davao City. The Marco Polo Hotel is the flagship hotel of the Marco Polo Group in Davao City and the location of the Hotel is in the Downtown area, just beside the Aldevinco Shopping Arcade, some nearby fruit stalld and restaurants like chippens (see my separate tips) and across the famed Ateneo de Davao Campus. The accomodations and amenities here in Marco Polo Hotel can be described as luxurious as befitting a 5 star hotel with big and spacious rooms, several good restaurants and the famed eagles bar near the entrance and the best deal here is that there is a nearby taxi stand just beside the entrance to the hotel that you can hire to let you travel everywhere. the hotel is about a 20 minute drive away from the airport.

Unique Quality: the rooms are huge and spacious (see my pictures) and the assorted restaurants in the Complex have excellent service at food (although they are on the high side but again this is a 5 star hotel right). The swimming pool boasts of a pool bar and magnificent views of Mount Apo. other facilities include: Air-Conditioning, Satellite TV, Telephone,Internet Access (On Request), Minibar, Tea & Coffee Making Facilities, Hairdryer, Room Safe, Room Service, Sitting Area, Non-Smoking Rooms Available. Standard Room: Standard Rooms 32 sqm, located on the 4th-10th floors with city views. They are fitted with a queen size bed or single beds. Bathrooms have a bathtub with an overhead shower.

average price a night here is 200 US Dollars if a foreigner and 120 US Dollars if a balikbayan or a local.

Directions: CM Recto Street, Davao, Mindanao, 8000, Philippines

Good service

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 3, 2010

The service was exceptional. On our third day, we dropped off our clothes at a nearby laundry. As we had to depart for out of town early on the fourth day and expected to be back after dinner, the concierge picked up our clothes from the laundry and dropped them off at our room.

Concierge also made calls for us to a famous Chinese restaurant (it was closed on New Year’s Day) and informed us of church schedules.

Directions: C.M. Recto St. is approximately 1 kilometer from the city center/ city hall.

Marco Polo Davao - Leaves Much to be Desired

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 9, 2009

If you are accustom to staying in a Marco Polo Hotel you will most likely be disappointed in the Davao Hotel. Look closely and you will see it has a tired and worn look. The staff as related to management is poor. The service staff is good. Restaurants certainly over priced for what you get.

Unique Quality: I cannot think of one thing unique or great about this hotel. You certainly do not get what you pay for.

Directions: Located near Atenao University. Downtown. Across from a tourist trap selling local merchandise.
