My Personal Review:

Snapseed

Maxx Hotel simply created a memorable weekend for me and Fris. The staff were very nice. They attended all our needs on time. Cozy rooms. Foods served were sumptuous (not an ordinary meal), big serving (per order is good for two people with an affordable price) and my breakfast in bed was delivered by their chef. He wants to check personally how was the food he prepared.

The only problem I encountered was the view from my room which is on the second floor. View was not that good because of the neighborhood but the roof deck was lit because of the jacuzzi.

I highly recommend this hotel for a weekend staycation if you’re heading to Makati for some shopping or to chill. Your friends and family will surely be pampered.
