A wonderful place if you prefer to stay in a nature-based resort. You can find the best collection of orchids, butterflies and ofcourse the colourful birds.
A perfect place for weddings as well.
The flowers, birds, sculptures, the coitage accommodation. The bird show is a must to see.
It is one of the first "star-rated" hotels in the city and a by-word among business travellers. The hotel's ballroom and several function rooms make it a preferred choice for conventions and exhibitions as well as special events like wedding reception, debut, party, etc.
Living up to its name, the rooms provide a view of Mt. Apo from a distance and the busy streets below. It is also located at the intersection of several roads providing easy access to public transpo.
Aside from the pool, I like to stay here because of its fitness center. Fitness Advantage runs the center and checked-in guests can use the facilities and attend aerobic classes.
Bagobo is a minority tribe in Mindanao. But far from being a replica of the tribe's house, the hotel rooms are equipped with urban facilities. Although a bit dark for my liking (there were only 3 lamps inside the room) and not so spacious, it has aircon, TV and hot/cold water. They also provide shampoo in sachet in addition to the standard soap and towel.
There is a coffee shop at the lobby or you can request for room service. The thing I noticed and left a lasting impression on me is the very prompt service of the staff.
I like its location - directly across and short walking distance to several fast food joints (especially my McDonalds); adjacent to a department store, cinema and beauty salon; few blocks away from a pharmacy, hospital and church - practically everything you need is right at your doorstep, including cabs.
This is my second choice of hotel when I am on work travel to Davao as it is only a block away from our office.
Each room is equipped with basic amenities such as aircon, TV and hot/cold shower. They also provide basic necessities such as soap and towel.
However, not all rooms have windows which is a "must requirement" for me. Hence, when booking I make it clear and make sure that they will give me a room with a window.
Just like other standard hotels, it has a coffee shop at the lobby. But its "outstanding" feature is its swimming pool which other hotels in its class do not have.
Tower Inn is my first choice of hotel when I am in Davao for work reasons primarily due to its location. It is right beside our branch office making going to the office no sweat and no hurry. Also, I can work late into the night content in the knowledge that my hotel is just a few steps away.
Although its name classifies it as an "inn", I would say Tower Inn is comparable to other standard hotels. It has the basic amenities - aircon, TV, towels, soap and hot/cold water. It also has a coffee shop at the lobby serving continental dishes.
There's really nothing unique with the hotel except that moment I step out into the street, there are cabs and jeepneys available.
The hotel is the tallest hotel /landmark (18 floors) in Davao City, and even the whole Mindanao.
It is also relatively new, got great lobby and five star hotel amenities.
I like this hotel very much, very competitive price, great buffet breakfast @ Cafe Marco, rooms are huge, and have a view of the city.
Next to the hotel is the Aldivenco Shopping Center :-) really cool place for shopping of batik and local crafts..
The hotel got a swimming pool. Several restaurants with great view of the city.
The lobby is huge, and got an eclectic feel to it, mostly Muslim inspired, even got a local weaver weaving tinalak.
All facilities can be recommended. Personally I liked the huge variety of tropical fruits and the friendly service at the restaurant and also at the pool.
Always my favorite, outside of the city, quiet, accomodation excellent, the gardens are well kept, swimming pool or seaside beach where you can hire a boat to the nearby pearl farm.
