Marco Polo – A Hotel in Davao City Really Worth Going To
As if heading to Davao City on the Cebu Pacific Air Wi-Fi-full flight and staying at Banana Beach Tagum for a few nights wasn’t enough of a treat, I was also able to experience a peaceful stay at Marco Polo when I went to Davao City last month.
After my insane, activity-filled Tagum days, Marco Polo was exactly what I needed. Although located right in the middle of Davao City, being inside Marco Polo gave me a sense of serenity the minute I walked in. I was also in a bit of a culture shock. After the beach-y vibe of Banana Beach Tagum and the activities that I went through there, seeing such a clean and elegant place took me for a loop – in a good way. It was exactly what I needed to get proper work done and to just relax after having exhausted myself in Tagum.

The minute I saw the room I was going to stay in, I knew it was exactly what I needed. It was simple. It was clean. And it was professional-looking. I felt like a businesswoman on an important business trip (say that in Barney Stinson’s voice). And, most importantly, the beds were extremely soft and comfy. Every single night I was there, I never wanted to get up out of bed. If I didn’t have a bladder, I probably would’ve stayed in bed all day every day, to be honest.
Speaking of bladders, I’m pretty sure everyone will agree with me when I say that cleanliness is the most important thing that comes with a hotel bathroom. Well, Marco Polo definitely did not disappoint. They also provide anything you could possibly need in excess, which is a good thing, so you don’t have to constantly call room service for more towels/soap/shampoo/bath gel/toilet paper, etc.
While staying in Marco Polo in itself already made me feel safe, in general, it is nice to know that they go the extra mile by providing safes for all of their clients to store their expensive belongings in, too. Better safe than sorry, after all!
For coffee addicts like me, Marco Polo has everything covered, as well. A well-stocked coffee-making area ensures that you can get your coffee fix any time of day.
Since I am also a workaholic, having this pretty executive desk to work at everyday made my stay even better. Not only was it ultra comfy, but it also inspired me to get out of bed and actually get a lot of work done while resting and relaxing at the same time. Did I mention that their Wi-Fi in the rooms are really fast? Coz they are! Win-win-win all the way!
Bookworms can also enjoy this cozy lil nook. (I eventually moved this chair to the executive desk coz it was just so darn comfy!) As you can see, there really is no need to leave the hotel room anymore once you reach Marco Polo because everything that you could possibly need can be found in your room alone. (The mini bar is well-stocked, too!)
Aside from all of the things mentioned above, all rooms at Marco Polo also have IDD telephones with voice mail facilities, fax modem ports, and LCD TVs with cable.
Marco Polo has room types for various price ranges from comfy Superior Rooms to luxurious Continental Club rooms to opulent Presidential Suites.
