Looking to stay in a cultural artifact? Check out Baguio’s Casa Vallejo. The hotel is a legitimate cultural landmark, with the National Historical Commission of the Philippines installing a historical marker in 2014. Add a highly regarded restaurant and comfortable rooms and guests will be hard-pressed to stay anywhere else.
Casa Vallejo is near several Baguio attractions. The Baguio Cathedral is a six-minute walk away, while Burnham Park is a 10-minute walk away. SM Baguio is six minutes by foot and the Baguio Museum is nine minutes away.
Rooms at the Casa Vallejo range from the standard room, the honeymoon room, and the family room. The standard rooms and the family rooms have a fan, while the honeymoon room has air-conditioning. All three room types have cable TV and complimentary WiFi access. An en suite bathroom with a shower and complete set of toiletries is also available in all room types.
Hill Station, the hotel’s restaurant, is a favorite among locals and serves Asian, Old World Europe, and New World American cuisine. An added treat is that history buffs will definitely notice the restaurant’s callbacks to the country’s Spanish and American colonial periods.
There are also multiple leisure options available at Casa Vallejo. The North Haven Spa offers traditional Cordilleran massage with oils and scrubs made from strawberries, coffee, and other local products. Facials and other treatments are also available. Adventure gear is also for sale at Lagalag, Casa Vallejo’s in-house store. Hotel staff would also be happy to arrange outdoor activities for guests. Casa Vallejo is also home to Mt. Cloud Bookshop, a favorite haunt of bookworms not just from Baguio but from all over the country.
