“Great location & facilities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

This Hotel has all the ammenities you would expect, located adjacent the Glorietta mall & a short walk to the Greenbelt.
Staff are friendly - to the point of tiring with the constant greetings of "good morning/ Afternoon/ Evening Sir / Madam!
Good range of food in the breakfast buffet - evening meals were ok only - we only ate in once!
Rooms were clean & well appointed.
Rooftop deck & pool area is nice - however you may feel a little "on show" if you are swimming in the early evening whilst people are drinking at the bar or surrounds!

this location cannot be beat! step outside the doors and you're right in the middle of one of the largest malls in manila. restaurants are right next door as well. service was warm and friendly, and they were very receptive to our needs. i dare say their service exceeds the service i was provided at the "5 star" hotel across the street. the room was spacious, and the pillows were unique in that they were labeled as firm or soft. the beds were a little too firm for my back, but comfy enough. minor complaints are the noisy a/c, and the slow elevators. otherwise, i would gladly stay here again, and highly recommend this hotel!!

I dont usually write reviews but having such a great experience made me want to do so, ås a way of saying " Thank You" to all the great staff who made my experience so beautiful. It felt refreshing to see people caring to do their job so genuinely and embracing us strangers ås their own.
You have wonderfull housekeeping staff, so caring. The way they respond, so happy to assist, I never felt so welcomed in any of the hotels I have stayed so far( I wish I had taken the name of the team who was responsible for the 8 th floor cleaning on the 16 July- great team, you are very lucky to have such amazing staff)). Plus ur business centre staff, a well done to all of you.

I've stayed in a lot of hotels in Makati (Fairmont, Raffles, Dusit, New World, Ascott (back when it was called Oakwood) and Shangri-La) but have only been compelled to leave a review for Holiday Inn because I believe this is the hotel I will keep staying and returning to from now on.

Value - Reasonably priced accommodation in the heart of Makati.

Location - Direct mall access! No need to get all hot and sweaty or wet with rain while carrying your shopping purchases from Glorietta. ;-)

Amenities - Modern hotel rooms, (opened in 2013), comfy beds, firm/soft pillows, free and fast wi-fi, safe, fridge, hair dryer, adequate bathroom space, handheld shower (no bath), retractable clothesline, complimentary toiletries, etc. there's also a rooftop pool, bar, spa and gym.

Service - Service was top notch. From security staff, to front desk, to housekeeping, to management. A minor incident was resolved with speed and professionalism, you can really tell from their response how well trained the staff were. Service from all levels of staff were friendly, professional and sincere. We felt taken care of.

I wish to compliment and thank their duty managers, Micoy and Alvin
Front desk staff, Leslie and Andy
Concierge/bellhop, Nel and Arcel
Housekeeping, Justin
And lastly, the really smiley security guy (not sure what his name was), who greeted us warmly each day and recognized us when we returned for the second part of our stay.

We will be back!

The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of shopping area literally its next to the main entrance of Glorietta Mall. We stayed many holiday Inn hotels all over the world some are ok but this is more modern, nicer and newer compared to a lot of holiday inn and suites including their USA property. Staffs are friendly and helpful. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay here and no complains. We stayed in the 8th floor then booked again another night on the 12th floor and everything was great. They helped you get a cab if you wont take the hotel transport and make sure they record and log the plate number and name of the cab you ride on for safety purposes. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Great hotel, perfect location. Love the roof deck pool and bar. The kids really loved this week end. And since it is located near glorietta and greenbelt, you have a lot of choices for your dinner and breakfast. You also have reserve parking for hotel guests despite the busy week end in makati.

My husband and I stayed at Holiday Inn because of its location. The ground floor is literally next to the Glorietta Mall! Unfortunately nothing is open until 830 (supermarket) or 1000 (malls) but the fact that the hotel is next to the mall made it very convenient to us! My only complaints were the bed, AC, & the bathroom. The bed wasn't comfortable; gave us back pain. The AC was noisy and didn't feel like it kept the temperature we set it at. The water in the shower sometimes took time to drain. Otherwise, the staff was great; always smiling and helpful. They asked about our stay and did mention that we should have raised our concerns at the beginning of our stay. We probably should have.
