The Manila Hotel is a beautiful, historic hotel. In the past, we usually stayed with family, so this was my first hotel experience in Manila. The hotel is a bit far from Makati, but we liked that we were away from all that hustle and bustle. We had a view of the historic walled city and it was nice to be able to walk and tour that area. I highly recommend it. The buffet breakfast at the hotel was equal to many of the 5-star hotels we have stayed in the past in Asia. You can also walk to the Ocean Park area where there are several restaurants, including a nice outdoor bar area with great views of the Manila Bay at sunset. My only complaint would be regarding the front desk staff, who could use some training in "smiling and being more friendly". They all seem to be in a bad mood, maybe because they were dressed like Disney princesses. There was once concierge who was great. He went of his way to help me with an issue. The other concierges, however, were useless. They had no restaurant recommendations and other "sightseeing" tips. Time for more training!
