My wife and I travelled up from Laguna to prepare for an appointment in Intramuros early the next morning. The traffic in Manila was surprisingly light (relatively speaking) and we arrived at the hotel around midday, somewhat early for the posted 2pm check in time. The two members of staff on the front desk were most helpful, directing me to the basement car park and suggesting we have lunch whilst our room was being made ready.
The waitress in the dining room informed us the front desk had called up to say our room was ready a few minutes before 1pm, we returned to reception to complete the check in process and collect our key card. The room was most comfortable with a very pleasant bathroom.
We spent the early evening on the roof top bar before taking dinner in the dining room. As with the lunch the food was excellent and we were both well satisfied with the dining experience.
Since we did not know how long we were to be at our appointment, the young lady at the front desk had offered us a late check out for the following day, we did not need to make use of this, but her attitude and helpfulness were exhibited by all of the staff we met during our stay which we both thoroughly enjoyed.
I would imagine that we shall stay here again, and I am certainly happy to recommend this hotel to anyone else.
