Meranti Hotel – A getaway without really getting away

I love discovering wonderful hotels that aren’t too far from home (aka “within the metro”) which make you feel as if you’ve truly escaped from the city. Many of these places around may claim to have this kind of appeal but only a few can truly deliver.

One such establishment that happened to be a pleasant surprise is Meranti Hotel, located along Sct. Castor St. in Quezon City, just right beside the first and original Max’s Restaurant.

Meranti Hotel happens to be strategically situated in an area of Quezon City that boasts of countless restaurants and nightlife establishments.

My very brief stay at Meranti Hotel was truly a delight from the time my wife and I arrived to the time we left.

Our room

I was happily surprised with the room we stayed in at Meranti Hotel.

The dominant whites complemented by accents of wood give this modern-minimalist room design a very Zen-like atmosphere which is great since rooms are ultimately meant for rest and relaxation.

One of the more notable things that will catch your eye is the room’s toilet and bath, since there is no physical door separating it from the area of the bedroom.

As unusual as you may probably think this kind of toilet and bath design is, you can’t deny that it happens to be something that works and works quite well.

It is also worth noting that their toiletries have very cute names which just adds to Meranti Hotel’s character.

Maple House Salad

I’m not much of a vegetable eater but I enjoyed this a whole lot. Fresh Lollo Rosso and vegetables, sprinkled with maple glazed pecans and parmesan flakes with roasted shallot vegetables.

Prime Rib Tapa

OMG. The star of the evening. This is Maple’s core dish and a chef recommendation. With good reason! This Prime Rib Tapa is a TapSiLog on steroids! It also comes with two eggs cooked the way you like it with sidings of tomato-onion salsa, atchara and served with garlic rice.

Bourbon Bread Pudding
