Someday, this hotel will be a well oiled Marriott machine. However, it has ways to go. Meanwhile, it should not be charging rates comparable to better located, amenity-rich and well ran hotels in Makati -- the business district.
As of late November , only the bar, coffee counter and buffet restaurant are open.
Buffet items are not labeled -- leaving one to guess what they are eating half the time! In addition, the server left me the tab to sign while I was still working on my appetizer. Of course, I was told that she was in no rush (!). Wait staff seem to be running and rushing in circles -- an obvious lack of training.
Workout room ( with state of the art Life Fitness equipment) is open but not the spa. Food and beverage service is not yet available poolside .
Proximity to the domestic and international airport terminals is the the sole advantage of staying in this hotel. Since one has to contend with horrendous Manila traffic, this hotel seems like 50 miles from business and entertainment district of Makati.
Rooms are well appointed and well equipped. High speed internet is available at extra charge. The bathroom only comes with 3 towels -- very stingy for a Marriott category 4 hotel! Lastly, is very obvious that the windows of this hotel are in desperate need cleaning (see uploaded picture).
If one has to have a room very close to the airport and willing to pay top Makati hotel rates, I recommend this hotel. Otherwise, you can never go wrong by opting for either the Peninsula or the Shangri-la in Makati
