"So which Baguio hotel would YOU recommend?"

Which Baguio hotel would I recommend? That is a question I have been asked a lot. The next most popular, of course, would be "Which road should we take -- Kennon or Marcos?"
And I do get to answer a whole lot of other questions about Baguio. After all, I have been a resident for the past 21 years and for more than 20 years before that it was my absolute favorite vacation place!

Baguio City is the one place in the Philippines I always dreamed of living in. Imagine all these --clear blue morning skies, foggy afternoons, and chilly romantic evenings.
So, in 1991, when we won the bid to run a restaurant in Camp John Hay, Jupiter, the horse my sister and I co-owned, moved up as well.

For it was in Baguio where I went on my first pony ride. It was here where I learned how to ride a bike, row a boat. And later on, it was here where I learned to party!
I fell in love with English-speaking natives in their indigenous dress, who would always beam you a warm, friendly smile. I fell in love with the pine trees, wide open spaces, parks and gardens, and the wild sunflowers that signal the end of the rains, with the "little America" that it used to be.

So which hotel in Baguio City would I recommend?"  I will do better than that -- I will try to list them all so you can decide what is best for you!
When I started GoBaguio! in 2003, most Baguio web sites were news-based which means 'bad news' was datelined: Baguio City Philippines all the time. What we really needed was a travel web site .. more
