Edsa Shangrila...Comfort and Luxury
Just got back attending a 2 day convention on pediatric pulmonology and I got billeted in Edsa Shangrila where the convention was also held. My experience with this hotel chain defined comfort to a T. Anyway, unlike big hotels, check in was a breeze considering that there is a convention going and they would have to accomodate more guests. I was given a room in the garden wing on the 8th floor, which is non smoking...a blessing since im asthmatic. The room was great with very comfortable mattressess. The bathroom was clean, the carpet newly vaccummed. However the hallways have a peculiar, musty odor.. .though it didnt make me sneeze, thus maybe its not really dusty. Since there were 2 of us on the room, we asked for additional toiletries plus mouth wash...it was provided in a flash! Thats good service, right? And the breakfast was insanely delicious...goodbye diet, I simply have to indulge...though it was healthy indulgence. Food choices varied from the local taho to chinese dimsum, japanese food, assortment of fruits, for the kids and the kid at heart, choices of cereals, continental cuisine, and a lot more.
