Emerald Suites CDO

I found the perfect accommodation in Cagayan de Oro City for mall rats! Well, actually, it was my friend who chose Emerald Suites and what a good choice it was!

Emerald Suites, located on Jose Agudo Street, is flanked my malls: SM CDO Downtown Premier and Limketkai on the east; and Centrio and Gaisano City Mall on the west. Even if I'm not a mall rat, I found this really convenient because 1) malls have many restaurants; 2) airport shuttle terminals are a short walk away—LAX Shuttle in Centrio is just a 2-minute walk from Emerald Suites, and Magnum Express in Limketkai is an 8-minute walk from Emerald Suites; and 3) Magnum Express in Limketkai has a daily shuttle (8:45am) to Dahilayan (Bukidnon).

We stayed in a Superior Room (Php 1750 regular rate / Php 1480 promo rate). The room is good for two, with breakfast. Towels and soap are provided. The room has a TV, air conditioner, cabinet, dresser, phone, and a water container and two glasses. You can call the reception and ask them to fill the water container for you. (Tip: Have your room cleaned daily and they will change the towel.)

The Superior Room can accommodate up to four persons—an extra bed (double or single) costs Php300 per night. (If you want to sleep like sardines on the bed, you only have to pay Php150 per extra person.) But the extra bed fee does not include breakfast nor towels. Extra breakfast is Php180, and extra towel is Php50 (per day).

The room we stayed in did not have a mat (minus points) outside the bathroom but did have a pair of mismatched rubber slippers. (The other Superior Room some friends were staying in had a mat.) The shower had a heater (plus points).

There were only two power outlets in the room and it was located near the door and dresser (minus points if there are three to four people staying in the room—I am sure each one has at least one gadget to recharge every day.)

Breakfast is served from 7am to 10am at the ground floor (this area is open during breakfast hours only). There are four breakfast options and the menu is changed daily (plus points).

The reception is on the second floor, and rooms are on floors two to four. A warning for those who can't pack light: There is no elevator.

You can book a seat on the LAX Shuttle (Php199) at the reception and the van will pick you up (plus points) at Emerald Suites CDO half an hour before the shuttle schedule (the LAX shuttle to Laguindingan Airport runs every hour). The ride from CDO to Laguindingan Airport takes 50 minutes to an hour.
