A few months ago, I was invited to visit the summer capital for 3 days and 2 night’s staycation. Apart from experiencing the newest 4–star hotel in the city, I also got invited to the launch of their Caffeinated Afternoons – a new offering from their in-house restaurant – Lamisaan Dining and Bar.

The Holiday Inn Surprise

Holiday Inn Baguio City Centre [Check Rates and Availability] is one of the newest family-friendly hotels in Baguio City. They feature a Kids Stay and Eat Free program, which means kids ages 12 and under stay for free when sharing their parents’ room. Plus! Up to four kids ages 12 and under can dine for FREE in any Holiday Inn® on-site restaurant.

The hotel is conveniently located at Legarda Road, a few minutes away from the most popular attractions such as Burnham Park, Baguio Cathedral, and Session Road.

It is also accessible to the shopping and entertainment district, government offices, and hospitals.

There’s no worrying about commuting around the area, as public transportation is abundant, making roaming around Baguio light and easy.

Arrival Experience

We took the early morning non-stop JoyBus Premiere Class Bus to Baguio City, and in less than 5 hours, we finally arrived in the City of Pines. We were welcomed by the hotel staff from the Bus terminal and brought us to the hotel for check-in. The check-in was seamless, and the staff assisted with our luggage too.
