Tacloban is one of the most progressive cities in the country today, and there seems to be something new and exciting to experience with every visit. Summit Hotel Tacloban is one of the newest establishments to rise in the past year. A stone’s throw away from the junction to Daniel Z. Romualdez Airport, Downtown Tacloban, and the southbound highway to the rest of Leyte province, this new addition makes for a strategic home base when visiting the regional center of Eastern Visayas.
Moreover, the contemporary hotel – the fifth and newest of the Summit Hotels nationwide – is conveniently located right next to Robinsons Place Tacloban, the city’s biggest shopping center, which offers myriad dining outlets, retails stores, and entertainment options such as cinemas screening the latest local and foreign films.
Overall, the contemporary hotel maintains a warm and cozy atmosphere with its earth tones and natural textures. The ample-sized lobby has comfy sofa chairs and a computer lounge for guests. This pleasant ambiance extends to the grand ballroom, function halls and 138 rooms of the property. While the understated design has its appeal, I think the hotel interiors can evoke more character with well-curated artwork and decor.
An outdoor swimming pool surrounded by lounge chairs provides an excellent place to retreat after shopping at the neighboring mall or exploring the city. Unfortunately, this hotel establishment does not have a gym.
Rooms come with breakfast buffet served at one of the function rooms at the ground floor, while the hotel restaurant awaits completion. Both Western and Filipino food are offered, plus the usual egg station.
Unfortunately, lunch and dinner are not available yet at the hotel. Nevertheless, there are several options for dining out at Robinsons Place Tacloban, the shopping mall next door.
Accommodation at Summit Hotel Tacloban starts at PHP 3,200, exclusive of VAT and service charge, for a Super King Room for two adults and two children (ages 12 and below), inclusive of breakfast buffet. Find discounted room rates here!
