Stayed here with a colleague for a night only from being stranded due to typhoon Maring. But who would actually thought that there's storm outside when the moment you step into the hotel, you'll be awed with the grandeur of the lobby and soothing effect of the piano music. You'll forget you're in the tropical country of suns and rains only.
Checking in has no problem, it's fast even with lots of guests in the desk. Only thing is, they don't offer some refreshments and no bellboy assisted us. We just helped ourselves with our luggage and find where the elevator is. The room is nice and clean, just as how you would expect a 5-star hotel would have; complete with stuff you need from a fridge full of snacks and drinks to a fax machine among others for business works. The bathroom's relaxing too. I love it when I can dim the lights and listen to classical music while I souse myself with a bubble bath. Toiletries provided are also of luxury brand Davi, which I was able to have a handful extra supplies when I asked for some since we're 2 in the room, delivered right away in a basket. The next morning's breakfast is something to look forward to as well although not as excellent as the nearby hotels offer. There's more to explore in Manila Peninsula but I'm bound by time as I have to rush to the office again which is just walking distance from here. Location of hotel is a plus, it's in CBD where high-end malls, good restaurants, ATMs are everywhere.
Overall, it's truly 5-star and highly recommendable although the price says for itself.
