If PBCom Tower is the tallest skyscraper in the Philippines, then Marco Polo Hotel is the tallest skyscraper in the largest city (by area) in the Philippines, Davao City. This 18-storey, 245-room hotel is a well-known landmark in Davao City and offers great views of the Davao Gulf, Mount Apo, the highest mountain in the country, and Samal Island.

Quite visible in Google Maps is the hotel’s swimming pool and right across it to the east is the main campus of Ateneo de Davao, which we featured before. I haven’t been to Davao but the Marco Polo Hotel has the reputation of being the best hotel in the city. If you’ve been there, do you think it deserves that recognition?
Anyway, you might want to check out the official website of Marco Polo Davao where you can check out its list of amenities, book rooms, or see more pictures.
