This hotel is the one nearest the Greenbelt 2, 3, and 5 so shoppers and business people love to stay here.
Maybe the lobby is not as grandiose as The Manila Hotel, but it is very spacious. I love the faux water falls outside and even from Greenbelt, I love looking at it.
The staff are very, very helpful and courteous.
They also have good in-house restaurants and dessert places(Jasmine, Cinnabar, M2M Cafe, and the Splash Pool Bar).
Unique Quality: My business partners and I held meetings here and we were served well.

One of the members of the St. Francis de Sales Hearing Impaired Foundation Inc. , Pia Nolasco (she works here/Sales), spearheaded the project (Christmas Party for the Joseph Gualandi School for the Hearing Impaired found at Tropical Avenue, BF Homes Las Pinas City, near Southville International). The staff live up to the Marriott motto: Spirit to Serve and they really have big hearts... they prepared a lavish feast for these kids...preparing loots bags, gift items, food, programs etcetera, etcetera.
