We chose this hotel for our last 4 days in Manila because of the fantastic experience my wife had there early 2012, when she "placed" there by KLM after a cancellation.
The hotel is a bit in the higher price range but it is worth evert peso.
We chose the Residence Club package which cost a bit more, but includes breakfast, a very good wifi access and access to the lounge at 24th floor for free daily coctail buffets and a variety of other choices.
The room on the 12th floor was good, not very luxurious but way above average filipino hotel rooms, with a good view over Greenbelt shopping area.
There was supposed to be some renovating going on, but nothing of that disturbed us.
The bed was wonderful.
Breakfast buffet on the ground floor was HUGE and overwhelming with filipino, chinese and americano choises. If you can't find anything to your liking there you should stay hungry.
Service at the brekfast table was perfect.
We also tried the breakfast in the lounge on 24th floorther was optional with the Residence Club package and the service there was more personal with good menu choices that could be adjusted to your personal liking, and a small buffet in addition.
The staff was always smiling and very helpful. After airport pickup (PHP 2800) we were welcomed and shown to our room by the staff, and the formal check in was done in the room.
There were helpful staff all over and you really felt appriciated as a guest.
The hotel is located in a fairly short distance from NAIA airport and in the middle of the shopping and business areas of Makati. Greenbelt was just across the street and Landmark, Glorietta and others within walking distance. There are plenty of restaurants at Greenbelt just across the street of you don't want to eat at the hotel.
We used their airport picup and delivery service both ways at PHP 2800 each way and the service was good and personal, and the driver picking us up had some handy shortcuts to handle the rush hour traffic, and he informed us all the way of where he was going, in case we would notice that he deviated from the presumed shortest route.
We had a late plane leaving NAIA on departure day and a big plus for allowing late checkout at the time of our choosing without any extra charge.
We will definately return here.
