This is actually a gorgeous hotel. You walk into the lobby and it feels very 5-star, and ALWAYS smells like fresh flowers. :) The service is most definitely 5-star, as every staff member is eager and ready to help make every detail of your stay perfect. Proximity to the Makati district and shopping malls is a great draw (all are within walking distance.)
The spa is beautiful and serene. Food and drinks are excellent. Pool is very nice, though there is currently some construction underway on the grounds nearby that made for some excessive noise.
The rooms/bathrooms themselves are perfectly adequate and clean, but could use some updating. I realize I visited in the heat of summer, but it felt rather damp/humid inside. The mattresses were a bit on the firm side for me (pillows were flat.) I slept fine, but I've experienced better...
I highly recommend the Dusit Thani if you visit Manila!
