Best hotel ever.
Reviewed 21 hours ago

I grew up staying at this hotel when I was younger and my family visited the Philippines. It was as good as I remember. The buffet is top notch. The service stellar. I got a promotional deal and it was not expensive so I have nothing to complain about. I truly enjoyed my stay.

The room was extremely large . The bathroom and toilet were separate. Very large hotel. The breakfast table has all the stick and you hand to the waiter what you want to eat. I was disappointed that i could not choose from the main selection. The dining hall was packed. I have preferences about what to eat. I was allowed to chose pastry to eat. The hotel is expensive and it does not have the five star status.

Perfect location for my trip...

Location was so convenient and just a few steps away from the mall, shopping centers, and restaurants. The staff were very accommodating. Buffet at Circles restaurant in the hotel is a great place to meet friends or do business meetings. Lobby looks elegant and this hotel was perfect for my trip.

Stayed here overnight for a dinner symposium. Room was well maintained, amenities still very good especially their L’occitane toiletries. Bed was comfortable, and this is one of the few hotels that has a light in the middle of the room.

Whenever you are in this hotel it feels just everything is in The right place. Well, except that The interior designs is just too old for me and when i used Their Business Center to print my appointment for The German Embassy, i was surprised The computer is just as old as the Building. All else is great.
