Stay was ok.
The worst part is if you are a member, you get to be passed around until you get a NO! worse they are not even mature enough to see where you are coming from, meaning they are the type of Hotel that does not listen much to concerns as they wanted to show who they are not how they approach and treat each hotel member's concerns.
I could stay in a Hotel so long as the all the things I like are ok but if the Customer handling is the issue, I guess this would be very hard to carry on your shoulders...When you lose your faith in a Hotel, it's quite difficult to recover...the only way they will be able to understand is for the Hotel to learn to "LISTEN", then "ADAPT", then "APPLY"... unless the management are in parallel to "blind leading a blind"...
Unique Quality: will save my comment...
Directions: corners of one sided customer handling sts and un receptive ave. and foreign driven ave. MAKATI
This is no doubt the place to be! The lobby is fantastic, grand and nice. Of course it comes with the price! But the hotel is comfortable and service is great. The location is not bad, but if you want to go to the nearby Greenbelt for shopping -- you better walk as the traffic in Manila is not the best! It is quite a walk to green belt shopping malls as compared to the other hotel like New World.
Stayed Feb 2006.
Fantastic breakfast - best I've experienced in Asia
FREE BROADBAND IN ALL ROOMS - they provide LAN cable for free
Very friendly and helpful staff
Very close to Glorietta shopping complex
10 min walk to P Burgos street
Great rates available on the internet
High security - and they have a system whereby they can tell at reception if you accidentally leave your door open, and they call you to let you know.
I saw both the President of India and Imelda Marcos in the lobby in the 3 days I stayed there!
None I can think of
I am a American and was traveling by myself. I felt safe at this hotel. And I loved the massages for $15 USD and the inexpensive manicures in the salon. I recommend calling the hotel and arranging for their Mercedes to pick you up at the airport. They had cool towels for me to freshen up with after a long flight from Europe.
The Peninsula is a more than welcome, quiet reprieve from the chaos that is Manila. No scene here. Just lots of old folks caught up in their own brand of pretense.
Unique Quality: Great full service spa, ridiculously delicious breakfast, great water pressure, salon located in the basement, charming pool, merchants come in daily to sell local art and handicrafts on the mezzanine terrace, and wireless broadband available in the lobby, business center and pool areas. Very good restaurants from which you can order in room service.
The most luxurious hotel room I've ever had the pleasure to stay at. Beautiful & well-appointed rooms, and magnificent bathroom. Full set of toiletries, fluffy bathrobes, high-quality white bedlinen. Luxurious lobby area and atrium filled with flowers galore. Staff are very polite and helpful. The spa, swimming pool and gym were perfect for relaxation between business meetings. Free internet connection (bring your own notebook and just plug it in-you can even ask for a cable if you did not bring one)
Unique Quality: Large, luxurious and beautiful room and bathroom.
The spa had the hottest and also the coldest plunge pools I've ever encountered - awaken your senses by dipping in the super hot pool, followed by a quick plunge in the icy cold pool. Alternate between the hot and cold, if you dare! The lobby is always a hive of activity where locals and business travellers meet at all hours, but rooms are still quiet.
Highly recommended for the business traveller.
Footnote: There is a uniformed butler all dressed in white on every floor. He provides security and service to you & is at your beck and call.
Directions: Corner of Ayala and Makati Avenues, within walking distance of the trendy Greenbelt area (nightspots and restaurants) and also nearby the shopping mecca of Glorietta, Rustams and ShoeMart.
The hotel's exceptional facilities and high standard of service, combined with the traditional Peninsula hospitality, create a unique sense of comfort that will suit the needs of the most discerning visitor to Manila.
Unique Quality: Elegantly furnished in classic style, The Peninsula Manila's 498 rooms and suites provide modern, technologically advanced conveniences, including complimentary broadband Internet access for all hotel guests. The Club Floor has been designed with the needs of business travelers in mind and offers an exclusive Club Lounge, serving complimentary continental breakfast, afternoon tea, and cocktails, as well as a boardroom, Business Center, and Butler service.

Actualy i didnt stay there, just on my dreams :), but it was by far the most amazing hotel in the area!
Ok, i went to a wonderful wedding party there! :)
Unique Quality: Located in the heart of Makati, Manila's business and financial district and premier shopping facilities.
Directions: Near Glorietta mall
One of the best hotel in makati. Nice, elegant, huge lobby housing many of the best fine dining restaurant/bar around the metropolis.
Wonderfule pool, nice, professional staff, spa, gym and other perks. Oh and free fruits in the room. Hehehehehe.
Unique Quality: Nothing specifically unique that you wouldn't see from shangrila or the mandarin. Maybe except the free fruit that goes with room :)
Directions: Just right in front of 6750/Glorrietta. You wont miss it.
Whe visiting Manila, the best and nicest hotel that I can recommend is the Shangrila Hotel(expensive and luxurios hotel), Mandarin Oriental( buffet breakfast is fabulous!), Manila Peninsula(they have one of the nicest lobby), the Oakwood Premiere Residence(if you like to have your own little kitchen, small living room, this is for studio type. They also have 1 bedroom and bigger suites and the best in this place is that this is located in the Glorrietta 4 called as the towers!), Dusit Hotel( next to the Glorrietta) and BSA MAnsions (near in the Greenbelt, a nice mall also) of course I've already tried this hotels with my hubby,lol;-) but it's a little bit of expensive and it'a always worth a try, so, try some hostels and inns,,the place offer alot of this one.
The photo shows a Nipa Hut, traditional hose for us Filipinos, it's very cold lying around with this hut,if you would like to try then you have to be in the countryside tours since it's not available in the big city.
Unique Quality: Across the street from shopping, of course! You'll be right in the heart of the Makati business district, too. The lobby is known for its yummy ice cream and is a favorite hang out after a late night at the bars. They have the best buffet spreads for breakfast.
Directions: Across the street from the Makati Shangrila
Around $200 a night.
Unique Quality: From the same chain as the one in HongKong, as luxurious and probably the best hotel in town. It is also located in the clean, modern and quiet area of Manila. The lobby is just huge.
