“Surely a 5STAR!!! Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Surely a 5STAR!!! Highly Recommended
Expensive
but it's worth what you paid for :) Happy Guest here!
Luxurious, Very accommodating, Friend and Professional Hotel staff
Shangri-La Makati staff are all 5STAR Professional
They are very helpful with concerns/requests always with a smile :)

Rooms are very good, Lobby is luxurious, restaurant "RED" is a fine dinning restaurant and really good, Conway's a bar at the upper lever/2nd level is good also.

Facilities are really good and I say this is the Top hotel in Makati City.
Kudos Shangri-La Makati!

The lady in the check-counter accompanied me all the way to my room and explain how everything works. I think that is top class service!
Great wi-fi connection, facilities like swimming pool, tennis courts and gym are fantastic.

Room is very well presented and fantastic bed and pillows too.

Excellent location as well as it is right in the heart of Makati financial district and Greeenbelt is only a block away.

Check out was simply a breeze.

Stayed in this hotel for 4 days 3 nights with my sister and nieces last April 2012. Enjoyed our stay so much. Very comfortable hotel room we had. Buffet breakfast was remarkable since it has different cuisines to offer. Loved the swimming pool. So inviting! Will look forward for another stay in this hotel in the near future.

I can't say anything bad about this hotel. From the moment you enter, right up until you leave, staying in Shangri-la, just feels right, all the time. It's grand, it smells good everywhere, the staff take care of you and your requests promptly, yet it doesn't feel patronising, or intimidating at all. You are provided with complete amenities, but should something be missing, just ask and it will be provided.

The breakfast buffet at Circles is a must, so better include when booking, it is cheaper that way. Inagiku Japanese Restaurant is a favorite. I like to eat there during slow nights. Sit by the bar so you can interact with the chef and ask questions about their dish, if that's your thing.

The location is superb. Walking distance to shopping and dining havens such as Greenbelt, Glorietta, Landmark, just to name a few. There is also a Starbucks right across the other entrance.

I never get tired of Shangri-la.

The renovated rooms are nice. Staff service at check in was excellent. I took the airport pick up by hotel and when I arrived, I was greeted when I got out of the car and taken straight to the room for check in. I requested for a room change as there was a strong varnish smell. The food at paparazzi restaurant was good, but I found it very expensive. The lobby bar has a wine buffet at 700 pesos, a great value- they had 6 red and 6 white on the buffet. The breakfast had a nice spread as well. Health club was decent size and well maintained.
