5 Ways to Get the Royal Treatment at Crowne Plaza This Weekend

by Marla Miniano-Umali

No matter what kind of year you’ve been having, a weekend of good food, great company, and well-deserved rest is always a refreshing treat.

Even better, we’ve found the place where you can experience the royal treatment that fits your idea of the perfect in-city escape. Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria is not your garden-variety staycation venue—it actually puts you at the heart of the metro so you can destress and unwind while making sure you never run out of interesting, enjoyable things to do. It’s also home to premier dining spots such as Xin Tian Di and Seven Corners, where you can bond with your family and friends over mouthwatering dishes and the most delightful flavors. If the Crowne fits (your weekend plans), wear it!

Catch Up on Much-Needed Rest

Sleep is often the first thing to go when we’re struggling to keep up with the daily grind. Now that you have the luxury of time, at least for a couple of days, you can afford to lounge around on a heavenly, ultra-comfy bed in a plush, spacious room that doesn’t fall short of modern conveniences such as a 42" LED TV, a well-stocked minibar, and speedy Wi-Fi access to keep you connected throughout your stay. The contemporary aesthetics and floor-to-ceiling windows that provide a majestic perspective of the urban skyline will take your downtime—whether it’s a disco nap or a full eight hours of glorious, uninterrupted slumber—a notch higher for a truly rejuvenating experience.

Your weekend stay in a Deluxe King OR Deluxe Queen Room comes with a Breakfast and Dinner Buffet for 2! Avail of this best-priced deal here.

Rake In the Endorphins

Working out may not seem like a luxurious activity (do blue bloods even sweat?), but nobody is above that elated, energized feeling only an endorphin rush can give. Fortunately, Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria offers you plenty of opportunities to squeeze in some exercise: take a cool dip in the outdoor pool and swim some satisfying laps, or crush your cardio routine and conquer those reps at the fully equipped fitness center. Harder, better, faster, stronger—you deserve to be all of these things; don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise!

Reward Yourself with Retail Therapy

With longtime crowd favorite Robinsons Galleria sitting pretty next door, the coolest shops and most popular stores are easily accessible when your shopping mood strikes. Get that gorgeous dress you’ve been eyeing for weeks, or slip on that statement pair of shoes that makes you feel (and look!) like a million bucks. Due for a date night? Ditch Netflix and chill just this once and catch a movie in the state-of-the-art cinemas, with a warm bucket of popcorn in one hand and your IRL love interest’s firm, reassuring grip in the other.

Satisfy Your Snack and Caffeine Cravings

Coffee runs need not be monotonous. For a special kind of coffee break that doesn’t involve you rushing through a busy sidewalk while trying not to spill your latte, get your caffeine and snack fix at in-house café Agenda, where you can take your pick from premium blends and brews, plus some seriously addictive sandwiches and pastries. Got a sweet tooth? Their cakes and pralines are must-tries as well! Savor each bite as you enjoy your treats unhurriedly, basking in some good company (which can totally be your own), or even flipping through that book you’ve been meaning to read for the longest time.

Indulge in a Sumptuous Feast at Seven Corners

They say seven is a lucky number—and when you’re #blessed with seven different stations of delicious international cuisine, you really will feel as though good fortune is on your side. Get started with some bread, cold cuts, cheese, salads, sushi, and soup, then move on to the Indian station before discovering what the themed station has in store for you this month. Twirl your forks into some hearty Asian Noodles, then say ciao to as much pizza and pasta as you can handle at the Italian station. If you’re a meat and seafood lover, prepare to drool at the sight of glistening Roasted Porkloin with Maple Mustard Sauce, tender Monterey Chicken, juicy Ribeye Steak, and fresh Pan Fried Snapper, or fill your plate with perfectly grilled Chicken, flavorful Salmon Belly, and tasty Lamb Skewers. Don’t forget to treat yourself to halo-halo, fondue, and teppanyaki ice cream for dessert, and refresh your palate in between stations with a free round of infused drinks.

Avail of a Sunday Lunch Buffet for 4 at the best price right now! Prefer to feast on another day? The Lunch Buffet for 6 (Mon-Sat) is an equally enticing offer.
