How to Get There
Stayed here for a scientific convention held at the Fiesta pavilion last October. The lobby greeters are courteous, the banquet staffs in the ballroom are attentive however, some of the receptionist are cold and insincere in dealing with their guests(barely smiled nor make an eye contact). Rarely you can find a vacant parking lot so I opted to pay for valet service all the time during my 3-day stay.
Lobby is huge and grand. Function halls (Fiesta pavilion and centennial hall) are newly renovated. Rooms are tired looking with musty carpets and long overdue for refurbishment. Elevators are slow, dilapidated and some of which can access other floors even without using your key card.
The food served on our function was ordinary. Breakfast buffet during my 3-day stay at Cafe Ilang Ilang lacked variety.
Stepping into the Manila hotel is like a time machine back in time - in a good way. Rooms are not flashy or modern instead they are old style charming. And service is great - smiles all around. I love this place.
I really enjoyed my stay at the Manila Hotel for a convention that weekend. Staff was very friendly, food was good and they had many nice amenities like a complete gym and spa. I very much enjoyed lounging in the lobby during the live music or enjoying a happy hour drink at the tap room. One thing that was a bit unpleasant that is worth noting is the smell of the pool area during low tide, although I can’t fault the hotel for something that is a Metro Manila problem.
Additionally while everything I ate was tasty, I have to say while I’m not picky with food at all but as an honest critique, the Pancit Malabon I had at the pool bar was one of the worst things I have ever eaten. All the other local dishes I’ve tried in the Philippines have been wonderful but I think the way this was prepared was absolutely gross I couldn’t take more than 3 bites. Maybe try to fix that one up a bit.
