Never did like Manila, this city just feels like it needs a good scrub and a major rebuilding and planning. But if one needs to be in this part of the city, Pan Pac is a comfortable choice.There are snazzier hotels like the Mandarin Oriental, Peninsular and Shangri La , which are all in modern Makati CBD. Check in took a while as the butler desk had a trouble assigning two non-smoking rooms on the same floor, so we ended up having two rooms on two different floors. While we waited, they served us complementary drinks at the bar (we chose some fruit juice). The check in staff took time to explain my room and the package which enttled us for an evening cocktail at their Pacific Lounge. And as we were leaving very early the next day, we couldn't have breakfast at the hotel, the lady offered us packed breakfast ready to be picked up at check out counter next morning. It was all professionally executed.
I ended up having the smoking room on the 9th floor, while the smell of tobacco was apparent , it wasn't bothersome. The room was ample in size with a king size bed and a nice bathroom with slding windows that open up to the bed , there's a little tv atop the bath tub , the marbled flooring looks a tad aged, though in a graceful way (this is no new hotel anyway). A 40" Flat panel TV adorned the cabinet wall A fax machine (a quaint equipment to be had these days but convenient nevertheless for those who need it) sits atop a granite counter desk and broadband internet was complementary. Shortly after checking in the room, a staff sent a nice little plate of sweets whcih I had with the coffee. Dinner wasn't needed as the canapes at the cocktail hours (lasted till 8.30pm) and free flow of drinks just filled us up. All in all a pleasant stay and a well run business class hotel and would return if I ever step foot in this city again but I hope a refurbishment is planned as some hardwares are showing its age. already and the bed wasn't as comfortable as I hoped it would be.
