I am a fan of the Traders chain ... great value and, in my view, ideal for business travellers.
The Manila Traders is a good example of how Traders gets things right. It has everything for which one might wish but not too many extraneous and little used "frills." It is luxurious without being ostentatious and it provides very, very good value for money.
The hotel is a fairly quick ride in from the airport ~ but it's Manila so my experience may be rare.
I checked-in in the Traders Club lounge on the 19th floor. The process was quick, friendly and helpful: ensuring I would get the best (and cheaper) transport tot eh airport, etc.
The room is big, well equipped and comfortable. A great bed, a big TV, good desk and chair, etc. My only "complaint" is that the lighting in the bathroom is a bit low for those (few) travellers like mdd who are somewhat vision impaired.
The cocktails and snacks in the lounge were very, very nice - not up to Traders Hong Kong or Traders Singapore standard, but few hotels can be that good!
The lobby and adjacent restaurant are big and bright.
All the staff were courteous, friendly and helpful ~ that's a Philippines trademark.
The views of Manila Bay from the Traders Club lounge are wonderful.
I would not hesitate to recommend Traders Manila to anyone. I will continue to stay in Traders whenever I can.
