My Family (2 adults & 2 kids) stayed at the Sofitel in Manila from July 27 thru Aug. 2, 2013. Traveling with a 2.5 year old and a 10 month old, we booked a junior suite primarily for comfort.
We were pleasantly surprised with the many extras we received. Foremost, we got a beautiful spacious corner suite with an enormous bathroom on the 10th floor with a grand view of Manila Bay and the city skyline. There's also the daily retinue of complimentary gifts such as a bottle of wine, fruits and snacks. The teddy bear that came with the baby cot we requested was a winner! There were just so many finishing touches that spells "home" and makes your day. There's also a kids center on the 10th floor with an attendant. The executive lounge (also located on the 10th floor) offers complimentary "snacks" on designated hours during the day.
Above all, what separates this hotel from the best of the 5 stars and diamonds are its beautiful people. They are warm and gracious people who aim to please and try their best to deliver above & beyond what is expected. From the time you book to your arrival; the doorman and the greeter who disarms you with her vivacious smile; the concierge who stops what they're doing so they can attend to you; the attendant at the kids center who befriends your children to the beautiful ladies at the executive lounge who checks you in. All these people become part of your Sofitel experience as they make a connection and build relationships without being patronizing or intrusive.
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Manila.
BTW...The Spiral buffet eclipsed if not comparable to the best in Las Vegas.
