Travel Guide to Manila Hotel
Manila Hotel. April 2010. We were invited for a Pediatrics Convention 2010 last summer, and actually went here for a swim! Manila Hotel being known as an old historic hotel gets creepy at nights and the atmosphere was something like we can’t explain, maybe it’s just me waking up at 3AM by some unknown force. But overall rating, the hotel remains to be something Filipinos to be proud of.
The hotel accommodation that time with the on-going convention we attended includes a buffet breakfast for doctors and its whole family at the Mabuhay Palace and unlimited use of the hotel’s amenities.
Here’s a few old facts about this place: Built and opened its doors in 1912 , the Manila Hotel has been known as the “Address of Prestige” to the most distinguished & discriminating guests like Gen. Douglas MacArthur, President Dwight Eisenhower, Emperor Akihito of Japan, Prince Charles, Marlon Brando & world-renowned writer Ernest Hemingway to name a few. Already dubbed as a national landmark in the heart of Manila, no other hotel can boast of being such a significant witness to Philippine history. Hence old age hotels crawl upon those who want some extra horrific adventures.
I had chills sashaying around the famous Main Lobby! I even asked the hotel staff to take random pictures of us in the Manila Hotel backdraft located at the left part of the interior. Classical music being serenaded by a group of musicians. The chandelier fascinates and gives the creeps at the same time. The Manila Hotel’s Main Lobby is famed for her beauty and old-world charm, preserved for almost a century. Philippine hospitality & a rich tradition of the Philippines’ finest embraces the moment you enter the door. Original Amorsolo paintings decorate the lobby and reflect the Manila Hotel’s heritage of grandeur. A nightly musical entertainment, bar favorites & cocktail selections, offer a good place to unwind.
Perfect to relax and unwind, with a breathtaking Manila sunset as backdrop.
Their luxury amenities includes: High speed internet access [both wired & wi-fi ready], Italian marble bath, Lavish premium bathroom amenities & toiletries (L’occitane), Coffee & tea making facilities, MP3 player-compatible AM/FM clock radio, Separate bathtub & walk-in rain shower, LCD TV in the bathroom, Individually controlled air-conditioning, Remote-control LCD TV with cable channels, Fully stocked mini-bar, In-room safe, Signature contact-less electronic door lock by VingCard, Welcome fruit basket, Free daily newspaper, Complimentary use of the swimming pool & health club facilities.
The Manila Hotel stands proudly along Manila’s main boulevard, just 20 minutes away from Ninoy Aquino International Airport. It lies on 3.5 hectares of lush green shoreline and centrally located near Manila’s most famous historic landmarks: Rizal Park & “the Walled City” of Intramuros. The Manila Hotel is also strategically accessible to Makati Central Business District as well as family fun entertainment sites like: SM Mall of Asia & Manila Ocean Park. In Malate, which stands just a drive away from the hotel, the nights are always endless. If that;s not your scene, you can play a few holes at the Club Intramuros Golf Course or visit nearby shops & galleries. Should any travel needs arise, airline & travel offices surround the hotel & are available to serve. A daily shuttle service is available at the hotel, providing guests with easy access to key locations such as SM Mall of Asia, Robinsons Ermita & Intramuros.
