Situated on a hillside overlooking Metro Cebu, Marco Polo Plaza Cebu is one of the most iconic hotels in Cebu City that’s popular with business and leisure travelers alike. It is located along the Cebu Transcentral Highway, linking Cebu City to Balamban. Lined with scenic cafes and restaurants, this mountain road offers a quick cool-weathered escape from the city.

Last year, the 329-room hotel announced the completion of its renovation of 60 Premier category rooms and suites, which were completed right before the pandemic started in 2020. Accommodation is inclusive of complimentary breakfast buffet at Cafe Marco, and complimentary use of the relaxing outdoor pool and fully-equipped gym.

While the homey deluxe rooms are still a classic, the upper-floor premier rooms feature a new look and more thoughtful amenities that keep up with the times. I recently stayed in one of the city-view premier rooms, and really appreciated all the upgrades! Here are six great reasons to book a premier room at Marco Polo Plaza Cebu on your next trip to the Queen City of the South.

Marco Polo Plaza Cebu now features 60 premier rooms and suites.
The premier rooms have a brand-new look!

Contemporary design

Upon stepping into the premier rooms, the first thing you’ll notice is the brighter and more modern interior design. Conceptualized by Architect Dewey Santos of DSFN Architects together with the hotel’s management, the refreshed accommodations are reflective of Cebu’s natural beauty. The local furnishings complement the neutral color tones with pops of bright blue.

Bedside power outlets

It’s now easy to keep your smartphones, laptops and other electronic devices within reach while they’re charging. Power outlets have been conveniently installed right next to the beds.

Flat-panel TV

The new accommodations upgraded the in-room entertainment with 43-inch flat-panel TVs. The upgraded television sets are hooked up to premium cable and movie channels to keep you entertained day and night.

Premier rooms are equipped with bidet-integrated toilets.

Spacious workspace

The premier rooms feature a redesigned workspace. It’s now more spacious and well-lit, and outfitted with USB ports for all the electronic devices you need for your business trip or vacation like your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Of course, the new rooms are still equipped with complimentary hi-speed wifi so you can get your work done in no time.

Integrated bidet toilet

The premier rooms’ toilet and bath are also now equipped with toilets integrated with bidet sprayers. Now, this puts the comfort in “comfort room”. Doing your business has never been better!

Better views

Lastly, the premier rooms are located on the topmost floors of the high-rise hotel, specifically on levels 19 to 21. Depending on whether you opt for a mountain-view or city-view room, they afford even better views, which Marco Polo Plaza Cebu is known for. Enjoy panoramic views of the metropolitan area or surrounding highlands from the comfort and privacy of your own room.
