“Great staff, good location”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

Front office manager Vicky and Carlos make this place your home away from home. Great hospitality people!! Very efficient housekeeping keeps premises "ultra" clean. Cable TV has 60-70 channels. Rooms are good sized. Beds firm. Two supermarkets located 50 yards away and a fresh produce shop. Shirley's makes good salads. Free broadband and wifi in room. It doesn't get much better. Why not five stars? Mini fridge in room was a bit loud. Pillows were really hard. Lot's of foot traffic during the night due to middle of night plane arrival/departures which is not hotel's fault. Great value for money.

The biggest plus for this hotel was the price, friendly service, and on site Shirley 24 Hour coffee shop. The room was a tad dated, however it was clean. The bed was not the most comfortable but was tolerable. My biggest complaint was that my room was right above the restaurant and in the middle of the night (like 4 am) I heard silverware clanking for a good 30 minutes. If you stay here make sure you ask to get a room that is not directly above the restaurant. I wound up paying $98.00 USD (all taxes included) for a hotel and car rental for the day. I would have to pay more than this for just the hotel at most of the other hotels on the island. They did have free internet where I could print my boarding pass and free parking.

In a nutshell if price is no object to you than I would look elsewhere, but if you are concerned about price than this is an acceptable.budget hotel.

Room Tip: Book the hotel and car rental package with Avis.

After eating at Shirley's Restaurant, I decided, on the strength of the "Milk fish in tamarind broth" to stay at the hotel upstairs. Meals were not geared for tourists, rather for locals and Filipino residents. Portions were ample and very reasonable with a lunch special, for $8.95, including beef chicharones, or deep fried beef skin. Like I said, not for tourists, but lots of local color. On Ash Wednesday evening, the restaurant filled up with the devout clientele, most with ashes on their foreheads. My Japanese friend didn't have a clue. As for the hotel room, it was clean, staff was friendly, fixtures were fairly new and in great condition, soap, shampoo was better than anywhere in this price range, bed was comfortable. And the kicker, they even threw in free shuttle to their larger and more expensive partner hotel, Fiesta, or to the Grand if you wish, ($5) to use the pool and enjoy the beach and restaurants there. Another thing, the cable TV had about 70 channels, compared to the Hyatt Regency's 24. A little far from the beach and shopping, but worth the savings and comfort.

Buyer beware. Century Hotel exemplifies Saipan's culture of business corruption. I booked a 2-day hotel-car rental package in advance, and notified the hotel I wanted a twin room, with early arrival on the first day and late departure the second day. On check-in the hotel clerk claimed that the quoted rate applied only to single rooms so I was charged extra for the twin beds. Then on check-out I was charged for an extra day, and the clerk claimed that hotel "policy" required the charge and the "computer is programmed to make the charge" even though I had been quoted a different package rate on check-in. There are plenty of hotels is Saipan and they are all suffering from the island's economic collapse (which is not unrelated to the rampant corruption). So do yourself a favor. Shop around. You can get better rates and a better quality service at many many other hotels in Saipan. The hotel's restaurant, Shirley's, serves the sort of unhealthy over-salted high-fat fried food that helps make Saipan the diabetes capital of the western Pacific. Shirley's can serve you Spam in any style you please but there's no fresh island fruit or island fruit juice on the menu, even though Saipan has an abundance of delicious fruit year 'round.

The Century Hotel Saipan is a 3 star hotel that offers 5 star service. The staff (almost all Filipino) are very friendly and efficient. The rooms are cleaned punctually every day. There is a coffee shop on the main floor that can is open 24/7. The hotel is located in Garapan and a short walk away from the main shopping areas. The hotel is not on the Beach road and does not have a view of the ocean. It is quiet, clean and efficient. If you do not need pools, spa and all of that, this would be a good choice. Note: There is a night club/bar on the first floor in the back half of the building. My room was in the front on the third floor and I never heard a sound but I would imagine that someone on the second floor over the club might have a noisy experience!
