“Old but still packs a decent punch”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Usually stay here on business and stayed here again after a disastrous stay at the Waterfront hotel the previous night.

this hotel is a it dated (rooms def need a refit) but they know what needs to be done and they do it pretty well.

great and fast free wifi

some wonderful food (their pork humba with garlic rice is stunning) and a decent breakfast spread.

it is also connected to a mall which has a really really good spa from where you can order a masseuse right to your room and they are good and professional and not seedy like some of the others dotting the city.

will come back here any day

Room Tip: Go higher.

Cebu Marriott is much better than previous hotel I would stay at on my business trips. Though farther from the airport and our company's office in Mandaue, Cebu Marriott's rooms are homely - you feel at home.
Room service is quick and under 30 minutes.
Lifts and lobby are not crowded.
Furnishings look elegant and do not have the 'plasticky' feel of other, specially, newer hotels.
Food at the buffet breaksfast needs variety and improvement though. However, their coffee is great.

We have favorite hotels around Asia and in the US. When in Cebu Marriott is our choice. Location is best as it is very close to the Ayala Center. Great place to stay with close proximity for shopping and dining. Stayed for a week and enjoyed the place. Service at the executive lounge as well as the Garden Cafe was pretty good. I did liked that they have different themes for the nightly hors d'oeuvres at the executive lounge specially that we stayed for a week. This hotel is a great place to relax when in Cebu.

One of the top 3 hotels we stay at during business travels in Metro Cebu. Security is excellent so as the service of the concierge/bellhop, transportation, airport representative and the front desk. The room is spacious as well as the bathroom which is complete with all your needs. They have one of the best breakfast spread. I love the ambiance and service at the Garden Cafe. The hotel is near the Cebu City Sports Club where we had our convention. Another plus is that it is beside the Ayala Mall, the hotel has an entrance leading to the mall through its garden. Will definitly consider staying here again.

If you have the need to stay in the City of Cebu, this hotel is smack in the middle of Ayala so it provides easy access to the mall and some great restaurants. The rooms are nice and the staff is firendly. the restaruants are ok, but there are som amany places to eat at Ayala Center, I would recommend the short 2 minute walk and eat outside of the hotel.

I stayed here using my 3 free nights and I was severely disappointed by the room and the quality of the food in the restaurant. The room was musty smelling - could be the old worn out carpet and the bathroom had chipped tiles and grouting. The bathtub skid liner had black spots on them and I didn't feel comfortable stepping on the tub with my barefeet. I was too tired to ask for another room (if there was any available - because you know, I'm just staying there for free) and it was too miuch trouble to unpack - so I suffered for 3 days staying in this room - plus I had food poisoining from a restaurant at Ayala mall and did not have the energy to move or unpack and repack. My overall stay in this Marriott was very unpleasant - because compared to other Marriotts and other Marriott branch, this hotel did not live up to it's name. The only good thing about this hotel is it was just a 5 minute walk to Ayala Mall. Even their expensive buffet was really bad and unappetizing, very poor presentation and most of the food looked old and dried up.

I loved the experience of dining and drinking in the lobby lounge last May 28 to 30 together with my friends since the waitstaffs were excellent in pampering and attending to the needs of their guests. This particular staff, Raymart Cuizon offered chips and drinks in the start when he saw us not so decided on what to order. Then he started some conversation with us and made us comfortable to kick-off our drinking session. Because of his customary assistance, we ended up ordering a lot from him. I think he is a bartender/waiter. I will visit this lounge bar again soon!!!
