We chose to stay at Ascott Makati due to the wonderful reviews here on Tripadvisor and it's close proximity to the retail stores. The ease of which our extended family of 10 moved freely between Ascott, the retail stores and restaurants took the hassle out of our time in Manila. It allowed us to be together or go our own way.
The breakfast was the best hotel breakfast I've ever had by far. The selection of food was endless and the variety of breads were fantastic! Unfortunately, the breakfast experience did not extend well to lunch or dinner at this restaurant.
The 2-bedroom apartments were surprisingly spacious with decent sized living spaces and a fully functioning kitchen. There was also laundry facilities in the apartment and worked well when you can work out the instructions.
The check-in and check-out process could be improved as i took a long time even though it wasn't at all busy.
