The Fairmont Makati, Manila is as good as a city hotel ought to be. The service is perfect, the decor stylish and clean, the layout is sensible and - quite simply put - I enjoyed a well designed and roomy space.
For regular business travelers, expecially those who are on the road often in this region and have some fears regarding personal safety, let me add kudos to designers of this hotel on this topic. The design of the hotel entrance has been especially well thought out, so that any vehicle wanting front door access must pass through multiple lanes of security before making the front of the building - yet this security feature was implimented so as not to incovenience you or waste time. The walk ways to the superb Greenbelt Shopping and Dining across Makati Avenue are similarly protected, but not at all annoying.
The pool area is perfect, as is the fitness center with beautiful new equipment and ultra clean changing rooms and toilet areas. The spa equally impresses.
Other minor, but significant items: the rooms have a huge desk work space with both wired and wireless access, and the wireless signal strength was never low, even during peak hours in the morning and evening. The closets are big with actual drawer areas so that you can unpack your suitcase and put it away. The bathroom is also spacious with a big shower area including both a fixed overhead shower as well as a hand-held spray - and generous water pressure.
Lastly, the food is good here, especially the breakfast buffet, with many on-premises baked items and an amazing live honey-bee colony for which I have attached a picture. Most wonderful!
