A traveller may initially visit a location to attend a business meeting or conference, but then extend their stay to turn it into a holiday or extended weekend staycation. Blurring work-life boundaries, “Bleisure” is the name given to this kind of trip which is just literally mixing business travel with leisure activities, and it is increasingly popular, especially among the millennial generation. But all too often, people fall into the mistaken belief that finding an inexpensive “Bleisure” hotel that offers full service is impossible.
Well, Prime Hotel proves that assumption wrong by offering customers a restaurant and a full bar on-site, with other amenities and add-on facilities without increasing their rates. Whether you’re visiting for business or leisure, or maybe both, Prime Hotel in Quezon City is the ideal home away from home for “Bleisure” travellers.
The 3-star Prime Hotel houses 39 cozy yet affordable rooms and suites that can make you feel relaxed and comfortable. It offers four different room types to suit your needs. All rooms are equipped with adjustable aircon, LCD TV with satellite receiver (Cignal TV), fridge, electric kettle, open-type closet, and safety deposit box. Business-friendly amenities include desks, telephones, universal outlets (220 AC), and free Wi-Fi access. All bathrooms feature hot and cold shower, bidets, slippers, and complimentary toiletries. There’s also complimentary water, coffee, and fruits for refreshments. Housekeeping is provided on a daily basis. Free self parking are also provided.
Its Standard Room is great for couples or solo travellers and has a choice of two single beds or one queen-sized bed for only Php4000 net/night – nice for its price!
3 Reasons to Choose Prime Hotel
- Convenience. The primary benefit of a full-service restaurant in your hotel is convenience. Most likely, you’re in a new area and are unfamiliar with the local establishments and roads. Having to travel to find good food before heading back to your hotel is a hassle. Having a restaurant where you’re staying simply takes one thing off of your list of worries.
Open from 7AM to 10PM daily, Lin’s Kitchen Claypot and Noodle House offers the best-tasting claypot rice meals, noodles, dimsum, and other Chinese cuisine favorites. Located at the ground floor, right across the hotel lobby, you can either dine-in or call for room service to enjoy their must-try dishes, and other specialties, including soups, desserts, and beverages. Dishes range from P100-P500 per serving.
Breakfast is also served to in-house guests at Lin’s Kitchen from 7-10AM. Choose between plated Filipino (choices of longganisa, tocino, tapa, or bangus with egg and rice) or Western (choices of bacon, ham, and Hungarian sausage served with egg and rice or with egg waffle) dishes, which you can enjoy at the restaurant or the comforts of your room.
- Safety. Everyone wants the ability to enjoy a drink or two with coworkers and friends and intend to stick to a two-drink limit. Sometimes, however, you want to let loose. One of the best aspects of having a bar situated inside your hotel is the fact that it is located right on your doorstep. This means that you can enjoy a night out without having to worry about the dreaded drunken walk home and getting home safely. Additionally, it keeps you out of unfamiliar neighborhoods at night.
For dinner and nightcap, Prime’s very own rooftop escape The Nautilus Whiskey Bar offers a refreshing nightlife experience in a relaxed setting. This Mediterranean themed restaurant is home to unique takes on familiar barchow favorites.
Enjoy your favorite beer, cocktail, or wine while being entertained by live band performances or having fun playing Beer Pong, Jenga, Air Hockey, and Spin The Shot.
- Amenities and Add-on Facilities. For those who are easily pleased, the promise of a good nights sleep and a clean room can be enough to justify an establishment as high quality. After all, not every place can provide a complementary gym on top of the services they already provide.
Prime Hotel lavishes guests with add-on facilities and amenities that make their stays comfortable and convenient. The ability to hold conferences (or personal gatherings) in your hotel; whether you’re hosting a staff event or are planning a bachelorette weekend, having the ability to gather where everyone is staying allows you to save both time and money.
Rentable spaces in the hotel include the 200-seater Grand Ballroom for weddings, debuts, product launches, and other events; and Function Rooms 1 & 2 for meetings, seminars, and intimate gatherings for 25 to 30 persons.
In the 9th Floor are the KTV and VR Rooms for the guests’ leisure and enjoyment. With a capacity of 15 persons, bring your friends and family over for a night of singing and the latest VR games using two wireless microphones for the KTV or the first rentable Oculus VR Set-Play in the Philippines.
So if you’re are heading out on a “Bleisure” or just looking for an affordable hotel for a weekend staycation with your family, Prime Hotel offers clean room, impeccable customer service, and amenities, while providing customers with a full-service bar and restaurant on-site.
