I had a disastrous visit to Holiday Inn a few months ago and decided to give Somerset Millenium a try. In addition to a room, I also booked a conference/function room. I called their events/room manager a few weeks before. When I arrived, to my horror, we realised they booked a conference/function room in their sister property Ascott Makati despite me telling them I stay at the Somerset Millenium and gave them my room reservation number. I asked to give me a function room on the spot as as meeting was going to start, which they did. However, the Somerset Millenium staff had to "negotiate" with Ascott Makati to cancel the other function room. They claimed they can't rent the room out anymore as it was too late and I told them that was unacceptable.
The room is quite large, with a separate kitchen. The living room has an old non-flat screen tv but the bedroom has one. Similar to the disastrous Holiday Inn, the workdesk has a power socket but it's used by the modem, so how do we charge our laptops and work at the same time? The breakfast was awful, 2-3 stars, with variety and quality lacking. The redeeming quality is the Greenbelt Mall I guess, with several good restaurants, but several bad ones too. If you need some last minute items, just go to the mall, the convenience store opposite the hotel doesn't have much.
And after 2 days, Ascott Makati finally relented and waived the function room fee. They should have done it on the spot.
