The Mediterranean-inspired Hotel Elizabeth
Our 4-bed De Luxe Room
At Hotel Elizabeth, in Baguio City, the Philippines' "Summer Capital," one can't helped be awed by the Mediterranean splendor of the place as you enter its driveway flanked by gazebos on one side and beautiful landscaping on both sides. Its lavish but tastefully-decorated atrium-like lobby is a product of the sophisticated and playful touch of professional interior designer and celebrity personality Tessa Prieto Valdez.  
Open in 2005, this boutique hotel, a 10-min. drive from the city's Central Business District, was awarded, by Midland Courier, the title of "Hotel of the Year in Baguio" three times, from 2007 to 2009. 
Its stylishly furnished and European-inspired four-pax carpeted suites (de luxe room, executive penthouse and penthouse) are equipped with airconditioning and ceiling fan, private toilet  & bath (with hot and cold shower and hair dryer), 21" cable TV, minibar, electronic door locking system, coffee/tea maker, electronic safety deposit box and private balcony. Wi-Fi is strong at the Floral Cafe, its food and beverage outlet, and in the lobby.  Nearby attractions here include the Mansion House (and its Pool of Pines) and Wright Park, both 200 m. away.  The Good Shepherd Convent and Mines View Park are also within that same distance. 
Floral Coffee Shop
Hotel Elizabeth also has 5 conference rooms, a spa (offering a wide selection of treatments),  a piano bar (featuring live music courtesy of an in-house pianist), fitness center, business center, convenience store and boutique. Guests can relax at the sun terrace and the hotel also provides free parking.
