“Great New Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The best thing about the Fairmont is that everything is brand new and smells so clean! We had a breakfast banquet event the next day so we stayed the night not expecting much. The room was spacious for the two of us, comfortable king-size bed--we slept well. We enjoyed cocktails and breakfast at the club lounge. Seeing how new the hotel was I was surprised at the high standard of service we received from check in to club lounge to banquets to valet service. The staff are well-trained, self-assured and have good teamwork. One cannot help but notice that.

Our family had a weekend vacation at Fairmont, Makati last Aug. 17-18,2013. With all the hotels we've been stayed, Fairmont, Makati is our #1! We enjoyed our stay. The staff are sooooo great! They are friendly and accomodating. The hotel is nice. Food is excellent & reasonable for a 5-star hotel. Pool & spa is sooooo relaxing. Love Fairmont, Makati! :)

Dear Marie,

It is always humbling when our guests consider us their hotel of choice - we are very honored. Thank you for your graciousness!

I've mentioned in some of the reviews here in Trip Advisor that it is always encouraging and motivating when our guests commend the service of our hotel colleagues. I'm very fortunate to have such a passionate team and for our guests to recognize that is very rewarding.

I'm glad that you also enjoyed our food and beverage and had the opportunity to relax in our swimming pool and Willow Stream Spa.

My team and I look forward to be of service to you again on your next visit to Fairmont Makati.

Kind regards,

James Bevans

This time I stayed at Fairmont with my family, and its was every bit worth it..they really spoil you with their service and affection..my family had a great time there..
Although from a family perspective the rooms are a bit small and bathrooms not all that private, but we just over look that for the experience there..all the malls nearby mean there is plenty of action..Would just love if they can add some kids activity rooms in there..currently apart from pool kids don't have much else to do..but for lazing around with affectionate service its the BEST..

I am not staying at another 5 star except fairmont in Makati for sure.

Room Tip: take the GOLD room..the add on make it worth staying there..they pack in lots of value for that extr...

I think the best thing to be said about a hotel is when you can say that everything is exactly the way you expect it and the way you want it. Last night, Fairmont Manila fit that bill. From the minute I arrived to the minute I left I was impressed with the efficiency and knowledge of all the staff. The bell boy even greeted me by name when I stepped out of the taxi, even though I had never stayed there before. Check in was a breeze.

The room has exactly what you need and everything works. Large work desk, HDMI cable for me to attach my laptop to the flat screen tv, great bathroom and comfortable bed. Room service was fast and efficient. Checkout in the morning (at 5 am) was equally fast and a taxi was waiting when I was done.

I could easily write more, but there seems to be no need. This is how I want all hotels to be.The Farimont was my 4th 5 star hotel in Manila and Fairmont is the best by a mile. I will be staying here again. The one thing could have been a bit annoying is the fact that breakfast was not included in my rate, and since I booked myself a room where breakfast was included would have set be back an additional 50 US, which I think is a bit hefty for a breakfast. Rooms should always come with breakfast. Especially since a room at the Fairmont is still more expensive than 9 out 10, 5 star hotels in town..

There is not much to say but that this was one of the best hotel experiences I have had in the Philippines. Fantastic facilities, well-appointed rooms, excellent service, a peaceful ambience. Look no further than the Fairmont for a pleasant stay in Makati/Manila. And be sure to try the macarons in the cafe and the Singapore Slings in the hip bar.

I wish to extend to you my sincerest thank you for considering Fairmont Makati as one of your best hotel experiences. Your kind words are inspiring, motivating and humbling - thank you!

Thank you as well for recommending the macarons at Cafe Macaron. We currently have unique 24 flavors. Perhaps on your next return, you can try them all. You can also try our Doussant - our take on the popular Cronut.

I'm glad you were able to enjoy the iconic Singapore Sling at Long Bar. On your next visit, you can enjoy unlimited rounds of Slings during Happy Hour - available daily from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Again, thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful feedback about our hotel. I look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Stayed in the hotel while leading an event in the hotel. Room had great design and amenities. Good acoustics, TV. Very comfortable bed and pillows with extra ones in the cabinet. Had an extremely useful work desk and functionalities.
Bathroom has a bathtub with a toilet and Bath with separate doors. Tub can be dangerous and slippery without any anti-slip mat. Toiletries were unorganised and just all plopped there. Under bed had dust bunnies! Though everything else was clean. Great coffee and food utensils.
Local calls had charges and Internet was slow. However operator was great with personalised service.
Food was absolutely excellent.
Great location being just beside Landmark and Glorietta.
