I stayed nearly a week, for a training and then some time with friends. The room was a real s uite -- big LR, with kitchenette, and a big BR with kingsized bed, and a good bathroom with separate shower and sink. The staff is friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is safe and a good base -- with two big malls in easy walking distance. Cabs in Manila are cheap, and the right choice for most visitors most of the time. But there is an MRT stop within walking distance of the Discovery Suites. Breakfast is fine, with a good range of choice, and there are newspapers to read.

Room Tip: My room had a good view; one of my colleague's window was right up against the wall of an adjoin...

Dear Nelsontouch,

Thank you very much for your post. We hope you will return to Manila and see us again at Discovery Suites. Tell your friends in Washington about Manila and encourage them to come stay with us. We also have wonderful and award-winning hotels in Tagaytay, a lake side community just an hour away from Manila, and Boracay island where our Discovery Shores resort is recognized as one of the world's best by Travel and Leisure Magazine.

Warm regards,
David

Spent a night with my better half to celebrate my birthday. Big mistake was we drove our brand new suv not knowing that the basement parking lot driveway curves were so narrow even a mini cooper would have a difficulty navigating them. It took 2 or 3 backing up and forth to make a curve... and we had to park all the way down to the 3rd basement. What a hassle.

Booked a Junior Suite Room... it's so small they should've named it a Standard Room. The amenities were average, not the luxury hype I heard about this hotel. Small bathtub. Overall it's an old hotel that needs a renovation.

Next year we're going back to our favorite Ortigas hotel which is the Edsa Shangri-la. Better choice in that area if you're celebrating a special occasion.

This hotel was conveniently located to my office while on business travel. The suites are spacious and well-kept. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was not impressive. My main complaint was that the room was very dark. I was facing a concrete wall and there was just no light coming into my room which gives me memories of a dreary few days in Manila. This hotel is fine if you are working as it has all the conveniences you will need - free wi-fi in the room, desk, etc. Also just across from a mall and a few blocks from a major shopping center, both with plenty of dining options.

Dear claraloiza,

Thank you very much for your post!

We also appreciate your constructive inputs. We actually have more suites that have windows and great city views. However, these are the ones that get reserved and booked early.

If ever you do find yourself back in Manila, send us an e-mail so we can make arrangements for you to get a bright, cheery suite with a view.

Sincerely,

David

My stay here was very comfortable with clean, spacious rooms and at affordable rates. The staff definitely went out of their way to address any issues and assist however they could. The location is also very convenient in a major business hub.

Stayed at the Discovery Suites a few years ago. We thought the hotel was quite nice for a 4 star . It was decorated up for Christmas and had a happy feel to it. The junior suite was large with a sepearte lounge room to the bedroom. It wasn't flash but it was comfortable. There is a large shopping centre across the street, did not really get to see much of the area as we were only there for one night.

Hi, I have a booking for a 3 bedroom suite. Reading through the reviews, I now have some doubts if I should just cancel my booking. I believe that breakfast buffet is one of the most important accommodations a hotel can provide. The hotel reservation is very expensive and if the food won't be good at all, it will just be a waste of money. Hotels are not just for picture takings and no matter how good they look if you won't feel relaxed and you'll be starving for not having to eat anything else than bread and butter is really unacceptable. How expensive could a good breakfast buffet be? Hotels like these should have an excellent chef. I would appreciate a response from the Discovery Suites. Thanks

Stayed there back in 2011, actualy during the monsoon.Everyehere is flooded but it is near SM megamall ,st. francis square so it is a breeze to crossover. Buffet and massage is great, all the native favorites. Danggit and Beef tapa is to die for, and the coffe(brevved or siphon) is not to be missed. Great hotel to stay with family.
