Grand Sierra Pines Hotel in Baguio City Review: Still Our Favorite!

Grand Sierra Pines Hotel in Baguio City - room

Like what we did last year, we spent our first 3 days of 2018 in our favorite city - Baguio. We booked a Superior Room in Grand Sierra Pines Hotel for 2 nights through Agoda.

It was already our second time staying at Grand Sierra Pines. The first time was in June 2016, when I made a surprise family trip for my husband's birthday. It was all worth it. The hotel staff even helped me plan a little surprise for hubby. When we were already settled in our room a few minutes after our arrival, they came with Baguio's famous strawberry shortcake, a few balloons, and a birthday card while singing Happy Birthday. It wasn't free though - I paid P2,500 for that. But hubby was touched and happy, so it was all worth it.

The rooms are still nice and clean. Same thing with the bathroom.

Wifi? It was unstable during our whole 2-night stay, in spite of my special request to have a room with the strongest wifi because of my job.

Their breakfast buffet is still sumptuous. I just love how they cook their omelet. They also offer Batirol, which is my new favorite.

We were a bit surprised with the new additions and improvements to the hotel - there's already a fitness gym, a playground, a bar, etc. This is probably why their room rates are now higher. I remember paying Php7,000 plus last 2 years for 2 nights, instead of Php11,584.88.

I just have to comment on how their housekeeping staff handled the used cups. When I was about to make coffee on our second morning, I saw that there were still some cream build-ups on the spoons and cups. Then I realized that they weren't using any proper dishwashing stuff when they took the cups inside the bathroom after I called them the previous day to clean our room. Maybe instead of washing them in the bathroom sink, just replace them with clean ones?

Verdict

Overall, our recent 2-night stay in Grand Sierra Pines Hotel was still excellent. It's still our favorite hotel in Baguio City.

We're planning to try The Manor on our next visit, so let's see...
