I enjoyed a 6 night stay in the Dusit Thani Manila in a Club Suite. The hotel is showing signs of age, there was patched and peeling wall paper in my guest room, as well as the exterior windows being caked with dirt and very unflattering and inefficient recessed lighting. However, the room had comfortable furniture, a nice bed with good linen and pillows, and a large marble bathroom with closet space and a make-up table for my girlfriend.
The staff at the Dusit Thani were very friendly and all of our requests were met quickly and completely. I had no problems with any staff member during my stay.
The new club lounge at the 17th floor penthouse is very nice. The design is excellent, comfortable and professional, with several board rooms and comfortable chairs and sofas offering good views of Makati. There is a reading room with a small library available there. We took breakfast there every morning, which was a small but filling buffet of Western, Filipino, and Asian dishes augmented by a selection of freshly prepared Filipino food like Beef Tapas and Chicken Tocino with eggs prepared to order. Evening cocktails were very nice with a small menu of hot dishes as well as a selection of deserts from the bakery downstairs.
I enjoyed my stay at the Dusit Thani, and it definitely provided the best value of the 5 star hotels in Makati. I agree with many of the other reviewers that the hotel could benefit from a renovation, especially moving from the recessed lighting to something that gives more flattering light to the decor.
