During my trip the Philippines back in July, we have jumped from city to city. That meant constantly bringing our luggage from one hotel to the next. Prior to our trip, we booked the major hotels in cities we knew that we would spend the most time at. The other few were last minute bookings. There were noticeable differences when we booked in advanced versus last minute. So over the course of our stay, I've taken many notes about each hotel so that for those who decide to plan to make a visit will be prepared. I will discuss my experience, pros, cons, and give my overall rating.
