RECOMMENDED: This property was previously branded a Renaissance and was popular with US Embassy personnel due it's security (there's a blast wall on the street side). It's directly across from the safe Greenbelt shopping mall which has a number of fine restaurants and is popular with the trendy locals. The airport is an easy shot.
The property itself is a little tired but it was initially constructed with high quality ingredients so it's wearing well. Maintenance was in good order. Rooms are of good size though furnishings from a time period more appropriate for the 70's. Bedding was comfortable and linens were of good quality. Bathroom was nicely tiled and plenty of very hot water, however, it's gracefully aging as well. My room (facing the mall) was quiet at night.
My corp rate allowed me access to the executive lounge for breakfast and evening drinks and it's well worth any upgrade as easy to have meetings here. As others have noted the staff is very good (and there are lots of staff wandering about). Filipinos generally are quite friendly, accommodating and quick to smile and welcoming to foreign visitors.
This is a solid 3* hotel, it's got some rough edges, but I wouldn't hesitate to return again.
