Imagine taking a 30 hour flight with two connections going half way around the world, and still arriving on time right on the dot! Pretty amazing I'd say..and enough to make me pretty happy. Exited the plane and headed to immigration. The two duty free's were there as i remembered, all priced in US dollars. Prices were pretty good …

TravelPod Member ReviewsHoliday Inn Manila Galleria Pasig
the reviews on this hotel were not the best, but using points I decided to tough it out. Well it was not tough at all. Typical Filipino hospitality right from the first minute. Great check in service, nice to have two men bring my bags to my room. Upgraded to a suite and it was very nice, all woodwork and very comfy. Mini bar was reasonably priced. Bed very comfortable, good choice of TV. Restaurent good as was room service. Not complaints at all and I highly recommend this hotel!

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Manila Galleria Pasig
The Galleria is not the Westin, duh, since it's half the price. But for its rates, it may be the best overall value in Manila. (Stayed a total of four weeks, three trips)
When I mentioned to my husband that I booked at the Holiday Inn, he was so upset about my decision. When we set foot in our room, he complemented me for choosing the hotel. The hotel is not rated five star and should not expect a five star accomodation. It is also much cheaper than Shangri La and Westin Philippine Plaza. I find it a great disservice to compare Holiday Inn with the others.
Isn't that an ordinary Holiday?
Well, all I can say about the two years straight for two weeks stay we had with this hotel is that it is convenient that it's connected to a mall, but hey, the service, the furnishings, the amenities should also be of utmost importance for the management. Holiday Inn Clarkfield is quite a better than this city hotel.
After reading the limited reviews about this hotel and since the Westin Philippines Plaza Hotel (where we have had wonderful stays before) was in the midst of leaving Westin (now its simply called the Philippines Plaza Hotel), we decided to give the Holiday Inn Galleria Manila a try.
Although we were non-paying customers (we used our priority club points), they still gave us a really great room with pool view. It's clean, and very spacious. Another plus for me was that it's connected to Robinson's Galleria! Easy access to shops, restaurants (food court, too!)and the supermarket. Great customer service, too. LOVE IT!!!
I stayed at this hotel in October, 2005 and would highly recommend it. The staff were extremely friendly and efficient, with the only problem being the cost of the phone bill upon checking out, but when questioned they quickly amended it. The rooms are extremely big, with 2 queen sized beds, the bathroom was a bit outdated and could do with being modernised, but otherwise clean. Buffet breakfast was excellent with a huge variety of food. Location was extremely good with the adjoining Galleria Shopping Centre connected to the hotel on two levels and security guards at both entrances, and the shopping was fantastic. Will definately stay there again next time.
Great Place at a Great Price
This hotel exceeds my expectations. A total 5-Star experience. The hotel's location is ideal for tourism and balikbayans, with a shopping mall just a few steps away and plenty of entertainment within close proximity. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who intends to have a great time at an affordable price.
My daughter and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Galleria Hotel on July 27 - Aug. 1, 2005 and checked in again on Aug. 5 - 13, 2005. We were very happy with this hotel (formerly Manila Galleria Suites) during the first time we stayed there in August of 2001 and were curious to see if the hotel under the new Holiday Inn management has been well maintained since our last visit -- and we were extremely happy that YES!!!, the Holiday Inn Galleria Hotel is still the best hotel in Manila!
I stayed here exactly one year ago today and enjoyed every minute. It is connected to the Galleria Mall which has everything you can imagine. The usual mall stores plus services such as spa, dental, laundry, medical, and whatever else you could think of! It was nice to know that if we needed anything we could go to the mall! It is also near other shopping destinations (Megamall and Greenhills) and close to MRT (public rail transit).
We'll be back !!!
Stayed at the Galleria for 10 days during the summer & had a wonderful time there. It is connected to the Galleria shopping center & had all the things that we needed including hair salon, movie theater, arcade, restaurants etc. The staff was very friendly & helpful. We booked a deluxe twin & later requested the end rooms which had more space. My kids loved the swimming pool. The complimentary breakfast buffet was excellent & the staff was extremely accomodating. We later stayed at the SHangrila & they said they still prefer it at Galleria. We first stayed for a week & later returned after a week of travelling. Upon returning, the kids were surprised when my husband was welcomed back & greeted by name.
