WordCamp Philippines 2009: Jupiter Suites

Jupiter Suites is located near the corner of Jupiter Street and Makati Avenue. Upon our arrival, we were greeted courteously and had someone help us with our boxes of WordCamp paraphernalia as well as our luggage. We were then ushered to our rooms after a brief stop at the front desk. The room I shared with my friends was cozy with beds that afforded us restful slumber every night. Our room had cable TV (no Discovery Channel though), a refrigerator, and a mini-bar. The bath had hot shower which was pure bliss when one was ready to turn in for the night. Jupiter Suites guests are entitled to complimentary breakfast at Jestine’s Coffee Shop, located on the second floor.


Wireless internet wasn’t available in our room but they did have a RJ-45 socket to plug into. Unfortunately, I left my ethernet cable back in Davao. No problem, they were happy to lend us one and within a few minutes, I had my MacBook Pro setup for internet sharing via Airport. Read more »
