Go Hotels and Summit Hotels and Resorts are proud to commit their support to Caritas Manila’s Youth Leadership & Education Program (YSLEP).
YSLEP provides financial and scholastic assistance to scholars and trains and hones the youth to be exemplary in academic, social and spiritual aspects.
YSLEP is sustained through various activities, one of them being Segunda Mana, the donations-in-kind program of Caritas Manila. Proceeds from Segunda Mana are channeled to YSLEP to provide further financial assistance to their students.
Through Segunda Mana, hotel items from the different branches of Go Hotels and Summit Hotels and Resorts will be donated to fund the YSLEP.
“We are happy to partner with Caritas Manila and be able to support its YSELP,” shares Robinsons Hotels and Resorts’ General Manager, Elizabeth Gregorio. “In our own small way, we are able to open opportunities and make life more pleasant for others. This adds meaning to the work we do.”
Caritas Manila is the social services and development ministry of the Archdiocese of Manila chaired by Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle.
Go Hotels and Summit Hotels and Resorts are part of Robinsons Hotels and Resorts, a division of Robinsons Land Corporation.

Urban comforts enhanced by retro-chic details are making newly opened Summit Hotel Magnolia (SHM) in New Manila a new destination hotel for both staycationers and long-staying travelers.
The boutique hotel with 82 rooms provides a different ambience from other Summit Hotels by Robinson’s Land Corporation (RLC) with its art-deco inspired interiors, collection of artworks, and stylishly themed suites. And characteristic of an RLC hotel, it is connected to the Robinson’s Magnolia mall.
General manager Pops del Rosario shared, “This is our third property, and our management wants to grow the brand as a premier local brand but we don’t like to call it a chain. We want to call it a collection. It is a collection of different Summit Hotels that can provide you different experiences. The approach we have here in Summit is that every property we have is a totally different experience.”
Although SHM provides different experiences, the comforting staples of the Summit brand are provided to guests including complimentary WIFI with dedicated router, hot and cold shower, premium bath toiletries, windsor beds, high quality bed linens, non-allergenic pillows, duvet covers, 42-inch flat screen TV, safe, complimentary coffee/tea making facility, and more.
Taking the spotlight are the themed suites with Super King beds—the Hollywood inspired Fabulous Suite, Moorish architecture-inspired Magical Suite, Zen-inspired Divine Suite, and old Magnolia House-inspired Nostalgic Suite. One of the hotel’s most requested suites is the old Magnolia House-inspired Nostalgic Suite.
This writer personally experienced the Divine Suite—a spacious suite with minimalist interior design, and well-thought off accents that inspires one to zone out and enjoy a zen moment. Topping the experience are pampering activities like massage and nail services by Lunula Nail Salon and Day Spa, whose services are available on call.
Apart from the themed suites, SHM has Super Twin Rooms, which can accommodate two adults and two kids; Super King Rooms, which can accommodate two adults and two kids as well; and Super Family Room, which can accommodate three adults and two kids.
After a night’s rest, guests can look forward to a complimentary breakfast at Conti’s located on the ground floor of Robinson’s Magnolia. Start your day with freshly baked breads and rolls as well as plated menus of Filipino favorites such as tapa, longganisa, daing, and more. Free flowing coffee, tea, or lemonade are served with the meal.
Then, spend the day shopping or watching a movie at the award-winning Robinsons Magnolia mall. Relish a good meal in restaurants like Lombardi’s for Italian cuisine, Ramen Nagi (for ramen, of course), and at the Magnolia Flavor House, which is a tribute of sorts to the bygone days of the old Magnolia Ice Cream House and Magnolia Ice Cream plant (that has now been replaced by the mall).
“It’s really a fun hotel. We like to make our guest feel that you can have fun in our hotel,” shared del Rosario. The spacious rooms, for instance, that can accommodate families and group of friends can have enjoyable indoor activities like games, pampering sessions, or for simply catching up.
Ongoing promotions include special dining vouchers with partner establishments at Robinsons Magnolia and up to 40% off on room rates until August 2015 for Robinsons Privilege Card, Robinsons Rewards Card, and BDO cardholders.

When I was a kid, my family and I would stay in a hotel for a weekend on special occasions like Valentine’s or someone’s birthday. When my younger sister Karen and I got older, this family tradition dwindled.
Thanks to an early birthday treat from Agoda, we rediscovered the joys of hotel staycations. We spent 24 hours at one of the newest hotels in Quezon City—Summit Hotel Magnolia. I’ve been so cooped up with my deadlines and she’s been busy preparing for motherhood (she’s due for baby number one soon!) that this staycation couldn’t have come at a better time.
The Super King room My sister Karen at the lobby Because the rooms of Summit Hotel Magnolia are located on the fifth and sixth floors of Robinson’s Magnolia Mall, my preggy sister and I didn’t need to go far. We spent the whole day doing what we do best—shopping, eating, and bonding. We browsed through H&M, H&M Home, and one of the biggest Daiso Japan Stores I’ve ever visited.
Throwback to the ’90s in Manila: Magnolia Ice Cream House As for food, we took a stroll down memory lane at Magnolia Flavor House, which served classic ice cream and savory dishes like it was 1990. For dinner we got our kimchi fix at Chef’s Noodle at the food court.
Now for my review of the hotel:
This boutique hotel is best for transient corporate folk who need to be in the QC area, Manila dwellers like me who need a hotel break, and backpackers who are looking to explore another side of Manila. Most tourists end up at the Old Manila and Makati area, but there’s a rustic charm to the neighboring districts of Aurora Boulevard, where Summit Hotel Magnolia is located. A few blocks away you’ll find the artsy Cubao Expo, PETA Theater where you can catch Filipino plays, and an array of restaurants and shopping districts.
For local vacationers who prefer to just sleep in and relax, Summit Hotel Magnolia makes your stay worthwhile. When you check in, they give you pile of complimentary magazines from Summit Media and a Robinson’s Privelege Card that gives you shopping discounts at the mall. The mall has a movie theater and wide array of shops; just make sure you buy what you need before they close at 9 or 10 p.m. Complimentary breakfast is served at Conti’s restaurant downstairs. Known for their comfort food and cakes, Conti’s is bustling with hotel guests every morning.
As a beauty editor, I appreciate hotels that go beyond generic toiletries. Summit Hotel Magnolia gives guests a travel-sized set of toiletries from Storm London, which to me is a great bonus.
Overall, the hotel is clean, modern, and spacious. There’s plenty of space for storing your luggage and personal effects in the rooms. As a person with notorious restless leg syndrome (RLS), I can attest to how the king-sized bed stayed firm and squeak-less despite my constant tossing and turning. My sister slept like a baby next to me. What would you do at a hotel staycation?
Summit Hotel Magnolia is located at Doña Hemady Street corner Aurora Boulevard, New Manila, Quezon City, Philippines. For bookings and more info, visit Agoda.com.
