One of the only luxe hotel in all Manila combining perfectly business and leisure. Not far from the airport, the main business area, the Asia mall shopping area and with many in house facilities for travelers on holiday, including a world class spa and a beautiful pool and garden facing the sea. Restaurants are all excellent, as expected from an...

Staying here even for the nth time still makes one satisfied for many reasons. Service is always good. Food at Spiral is always the best. The atmosphere is just always welcoming! We missed the glorious Manila sunset though this time!

Like many of the top hotels in Manila, the staff make up for small infrastructure challenges. The food in the Spiral restaurant is outstanding. Especially if you are a Francophile. Their selection of cheeses can surely not be bettered in SE Asia. Breads and (illy) coffee add to the quality. The hotel has many good features from the warm welcome...

I booked through a website which offers miles per usd4. I specifically selected this hotel because I was curious about the talked about breakfast buffet.

Celebrated my birthday in this hotel and i truly had a blast. The service is fine but the facilities are fantastic. I particularly liked the swimming pool and the Manila bay view of the room. The Spiral buffet is arguably the best in Manila.

The hotel is a little off the beaten track but less than a ten minute cab ride ( depending on the often intense traffic) from many of the things you may want to visit.
