One of our family's most sought-after traditions is to spend Christmas in a Hotel. Yes. And I can't deny that just thinking of the idea never fails to makes us drool for 11 months. It is always a challenge for us to look for that perfect hotel where we would spend our Christmas at. Of course, as much as possible, we refrain from staying at the same hotel twice. So last December, we decided to stay at Dusit Thani.

Hotels are always in their best form during this season. Lobbies are well-decorated and very colourful and beaming with lights. Dusit Thani is one of the most beautiful hotels that I have stayed at, so far. The moment you set your foot on their lobby - breath of fresh air! Literally and figuratively! Our room was clean but I think it needs remodeling because it looks old, yet still well-maintained. CR was clean but the tub was a bit dusty and our electric pot was leaking.

Food is great. However, their hot coffee is not indeed hot and I think they were a little slow in refilling food trays. Some trays were already emptied, but still unrefilled.

Though there are minimal negative feedbacks about Dusit, still our stay last Christmas was one of my favorites so far.

Since I entered the lobby, I have felt the friendliness of the hotel staff. I was staying in the Club Executive Suite, so I was escorted to the Club Executive check-in on a different floor.
The check-in process was smooth!

To have the biggest club lounge in town, Dusit Thani Manila is really good in giving excellent service to the guests! It also has a reading room in the club lounge area!

The room itself was excellent. They separate the bedroom with the living room (with working desk) . The bathroom is huge, with bathtub and shower on the right side, and the dressing room on the left.
The bed is really comfy too.

Dusit Thani Manila has the best location, where you are a few meters away from Malls complex - SM Mall, Glorietta, Greenbelt!

Room Tip: Get the Club Executive Suite if you wanted the access to the biggest club lounge in town. And being...

It is a decent hotel, very well located in the heart of Makati. Very well designed without much frills, absolutely clean, fine landscape, well equipped rooms and professional service.
That is only 10%. The rest is the warmth and personal attention lavished on you by every one. This is one hotel where the bartender making great cocktails returned the tip saying it is too much. This is one place where the house keeping boy in your corridor beats you to the lift to press the button for you. This is where the phone is picked up at first ring.
The room is spacious and well appointed. I welcomed the health faucet in the toilet absent in most five star hotels.
The security is fool proof and gives you a feeling that you are well looked after.
I enjoyed my two days here.

Room n.623 it doesn't worth the 100 and more euro per night.
Furniture old especially the toilet the bath and the sink has been repainted! There is a big gap between the quality of the lobby and the room. At that time the swimming pool was under renovation but it wasn't specified when I book the hotel!

Dear Nichola78

Thank you for the review and please accept my apologies that the poolside was not available due to the improvement programme we had to undertake to address this area. I do hope that the alternative arrangements we had provided to swim nearby were to your needs.

We are undertaking an extensive programme of renovation at the hotel and I am sure that should you return and try our renovated rooms towards the end of this year you will see that they offer excellent value for the range of facilities we shall be offering.

Thank you once again and we hope to see you later this year.

This used to be my hotel of choice in Manila - a decade ago.

Now its tired - the rooms are small and the bathrooms really need an upgrade.

For the price being paid its truly not worth it ........ there are better choices in Manila
