Cagayan de Oro: The Pryce Plaza Hotel Experience

Pryce Plaza Hotel is one of the longest running luxury hotels in Cagayan de Oro City. Perched atop Carmen Hill, it offers a panoramic view of the city, Macajalar Bay and distant mountain ranges. Its location made it one of the best known landmarks in the City of Golden Friendship. With its state-of-the-art facilities and amenities, Pryce Plaza Hotel is also a popular venue for business meetings, conventions, banquets and weddings.

Being one of Cagayan de Oro's luxurious hotels, its room rates range from Php3,400 to Php9,515.00. Obviously, the rates are way beyond my usual backpacker's budget. Fortunately, I scored a good deal at Travel Book and booked a Standard Double Room for only Php1,870.00, a whooping 50% savings from its regular rate of Php3,700.00.

So with the huge discount availed, I was able to treat my family to a weekend stay in one of Cagayan de Oro's high-end hotels. Check out our Pryce Plaza Hotel experience with the photos posted below.



The hotel has a spacious lobby and reception area. After presenting my Travel Book voucher, checking in was a breeze and hassle-free.


Floor-to-ceiling windows provides natural light from the outside. Being one of Cagayan de Oro's oldest hotels, Pryce Plaza still has some outdated construction features, like traditional door knobs instead of keycard locks.


Our standard double room is very spacious. It has one double bed and a single bed. There are plenty of spaces for my kids to play and move around freely.




Our room also has a huge closet and a mini-refrigerator.


The bathroom has a fully tiled floor, wall and sink. The toilet seat has no bidet plumbing fixture though. Aside from the usual hot and cold shower it also has a bath tub and comes with a free set of toiletries.





What I love most in our room is the overlooking view of Cagayan de Oro City, Macajalar Bay and distant mountain ranges. The view is even made more amazing with the room's huge clear glass windows.


When traveling with my kids, one consideration in choosing a hotel to stay is if it has a swimming pool. We love that Pryce Plaza's pool is kept clean and me the kiddos thoroughly enjoyed swimming on it.  


Aside from the use of swimming pool, our accommodation also came with free buffet breakfast at the hotel's Cafe Cagayan and free use of their fitness gym. Since I am into running, I was happy to log in a few kilometers on the treadmill and lift some weights during our stay.

Pryce Plaza Hotel is less than 10 minutes ride to SM City and the city proper, and about 1 hour to Laguindingan Airport. Though it is a bit far from the main road, getting in and out of the hotel is not a problem as taxicabs are readily available.

Overall, it was great experience staying at Pryce Plaza Hotel. With my limited budget, it is not very often that I can treat my family in a luxurious hotel. Thanks to the huge discount availed through online booking, we were able to enjoy the amenities and facilities of a 4-star hotel without spending too much.
