We stayed at the Manila Marriott for 4 nights, after 6 days enjoying the beaches of Coron, Palawan. I chose the Marriott for its proximity to NAIA's domestic and international terminals. It was extremely convenient arriving from Palawan, and 4 days later leaving for the US.
In one word, our stay at the Marriott was exceptional.
The room is crisp, very clean and modern. (Ultra fast Wifi!!!) The hotel lobby, restaurants and room are exactly as beautiful as online pictures! The bathroom in particular, is amazingly relaxing. The hotel gym, pool and jacuzzi facilities are new and modern.
Couple of small but very nice touches: Turn on the TV the first time, and you see a welcome greeting with your name on it. Also, call the front desk from the room phone, and they answer and greet you by name.
I came back to the room one afternoon, to find a message blinking on the phone. When I called, I got an invitation to watch the Superbowl with other guests at the lobby. The night before I checked out, they called again to ask if I had any special needs the next morning. The complimentary airport shuttles leave every hour on the hour.
The hotel staff also assisted me in purchasing VIP tickets to the King and I, at Resorts World. A staffer walked with me all the way to the box office -- and I got the 2 best tickets still available. Matinee show is conveniently at 2pm --- and it was a thoroughly enjoyable theatre show!
Breakfast buffet --- eat healthy or pigout, choices seemed limitless. I had a Filipino breakfast most mornings! (Tip- if you order halo-halo delivered to your room -- one order is more than enough for 2 people!)
We enjoyed walking to Resorts World for meals, and lucked out on several Chinese New Year shows and celebrations. I especially recommend the Filipino restaurant - Crisostomo's. We ate there at least 3 times!
Would I stay at the Marriott again? Definitely. It is the perfect hotel to stay in on the last leg of a Philippine vacation. The rooms, dining, jacuzzi, gym, entertainment --- exceptional. Special mention to the quality of service by the staff - truly exceptional.
See you next year Marriott!
