Great stay again. Fantastic buffet breakfast, clean room, friendly and helpful staff. The Eagle Bar is a great place to catch up with friends and have a few drinks. Although some of the bar staff need more practice at Karaoke :)
This was my second visit to the Marco Polo. The staff is what makes this a great place to stay. To say that they are very helpful would be an understatement. Although I must admit that i have had nicer accomodations elsewhere I have never came
across a more professional staff anywhere. If you are a first time visitor to Davao they can help you in any area that you may need assistance. From transportation to excursions they can make it happen. Everything that they arrainged for me was top notch and very professional.
The Marco Polo is probably the best hotel in DAvao. I think that is why it was getting a five star rating. However, it does not compare to the 5 star hotels I stayed at in Makati. The bed was queen size, but very hard to sleep on. The cover and
sheet were combined into one item, so if you just wanted to use the sheet for cover, it was not possible. The bathroom had no exhaust fan. If you ran the water at a high level, the water did not drain properly. The buffet breakfast was the best part of the hotel. The selection and qualily of the food items was quite good.
Overall, it was a good hotel, but not 5 star. Because it is the best hotel in Davao, I would stay there again if I return to Davao.
As a U.S. citizen, this is what I would have expected in an upscale hotel at home. A minor irritation was that they charge to use the "business center" computer if you need to check your email, etc. Since that is the only negative thing I have
to say, I would strongly recommend this hotel to anybody.
