New Makati hotel full after just two weeks

The two week old Holiday Inn, Makati was apparently full last night - not the first time in its short history that this has been true.

It is cheaper than Shangri-La Hotel, Makati, Fairmont Makati or Raffles Makati but a reasonably similar rate to New World Hotel Makati.

It would be interesting to know if this excellent Sunday night occupancy is another positive trend from Philippines' world leading call centre location status, whether it's a reflection of the very handy location of this new hotel next to Glorietta 2 and quite close to Greenbelt or whether the upswing in Filipino domestic tourism to about 44 million trips a year has anything to do with it.

There were British, European and Japanese businessmen checking in from early afternoon.

On the Saturday night on which I stayed, occupancy rate was about 60 per cent.

1. Re: New Makati hotel full after just two weeks

In Australia, Sunday night can be relatively low occupancy for capital city hotels as depsite potential flight delays, businessmen try to limit overnights away from home. So it's doubly amazing that this Holiday Inn filled up then despite Manila not being known for special sporting or cultural events as are many Western cities.

Holiday Inn Makati has a very good location. It's on a newly renovated area and has direct access to the Glorietta mall. I wouldn't be surprised if occupancy here would always be high.
