Surprisingly Unpleasant

Would not recommend Mon, Apr 6, 2015
The hotel was short staffed during one of its busiest season. We were there Christmas of 2014 and the time it took for us to get checked in was ridiculous - around 90 minutes!! The shower in our room has to be hand held to be used, otherwise you won't be able to use the shower. So imagine showering holding the shower on one hand and the soap on the other???

Christmas 2014

Would not recommend Wed, Dec 31, 2014
I have 4 rooms booked and we arrived at around 1:30 pm. We were allowed to register but the rooms were not released as the check in time was at 2:00 pm. So we grabbed a late lunch and came back at 4:00 pm and the rooms were still not ready!! I was upset because the other guests who were just arriving got their rooms before us who arrived and registered at 1:30 pm. Finally at around 4:45 pm we were called and were given our room keys. The hotel was very crowded and the staff were ill prepared to handle the busy holiday season. One last thing, the shower head had to be hand held while showering as it can not be adjusted while in use. Imagine holding the shower in one hand and the soap on the other while showering??? That wouldn't be a problem if you have 3 hands.

Romance in the City

Would recommend Sat, Feb 25, 2012
Very opulent hotel and conveniently located to the airport and Mall of Asia and other important landmarks. Like the city of Manila though, the hotel was very crowded and noisy; so really didn't have the romantic evenings I had anticipated. The staff is well trained with the meet and greet protocol which of course transpires into the wholeness of hospitality and return visits. A little too pricey of a stay after experiencing upsales, taxi fare standards, and in- house dining. The room was not thoroughly cleaned and I did a room move due to pre-event construction ( around the clock). The thing that stands out most was the view of bay and city. I am undecided about a return stay on my next visit.

Money saver

Dont take a taxi from the hotel - but walk off property to find one. Their prices are at least twice and sometimes almost 4 times the norm. Their contracted taxi drivers are certified but that doesnt mean the remaining thousands are worthless. I've experienced some very professional taxi drivers outside the hotel on this visit.

Spectacular Hotel

Would recommend Thu, Mar 24, 2011
From the minute we arrived to the minute we left I loved this hotel. I can't wait to go back to the superb but pricey dinner buffet, easily organized transportation to Mall of Asia, the wonderful rooms and just really friendly and professional staff. The executive lounge made our stay the absolute best. Well worth the price. We will be back next year and will stay longer after we land, so we can enjoy all the hotel has to offer. I have stayed in a tons of hotels all over the world and this is the best.
