... that! Once I got settled in my room I hopped online to do some quick research for where I could get some authentic Filipino food for lunch and I was off.
It was hot, humid, and raining, but I was headed to the Greenbelt, which was just around the corner from the hotel. The Greenbelt is a collection of malls (Greenbelt 1-5) connected by walkways and greenery...and a koi pond. Mesa is a Filipino restaurant in Greenbelt 5 that took a little ...
... I have to assume that the underpass just collects all the fumes from the vehicles.
The area that I live in is called Bontifacio Global Center or BGC. It's a wealthy area with many office buildings, malls, restaurants and parks. I see young professionals or even nanny’s walking dogs and babies. However, just a 20 minute drive and you can see shanty towns with stray dogs and ...
... dancers were bakla (Filipino term for gay) in which many were dressed as women. In a way, I must say that it made the fire dancing more interesting to watch at times. The talent here was incredible. The singers were 'record label' potentials. We made our way around from bar to bar just slugging back some cocktails as we bobbed our heads to the music. The painters and drawers were not to be overlooked as well. Most painters worked for clothing stores; they would simply sit there ...
... enough for his special poem, thanks Eddie x I miss you guys millions...
A sign in the hostel is looking for volunteers and when I enquire what for, it's the Red Cross looking for people to help package up clothing parcels to be sent to Tacloban which was one of the worst hit areas of Typhoon Haiyan. I'm given directions from the hostel of how to get there which entails walking to the LRT line and catching a train a couple of stops before ...
... a few. It was just not just one straight tunnel either, but had many lateral tunnels branching off the main one. We had an opportunity to pay extra and walk through the tunnel to watch a "light and sound show," but we opted not to and instead, see more of the island with Stella. I actually liked this because it made for a more intimate tour AND in the end, when the rest of the group came out of the other side of the tunnel, we were able to walk in at ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Hotel And Casino Manila
So Very Classy
I stayed here for the 2nd time during May 2006. Again i was treated like a king. I even got upgraded to the best room in the entire hotel...the Presidential Suite. Room serive was prompt and they serve great hamburgers. As usual the Market Cafe was excellent. I even saw the Mayor of Manila eating at the table next to me! Everything was excellent. Please take a look at the pictures I took.
A Great Place To Stay!
I recently stayed at the Hyatt Casino in Manila and had a great time there. The Hotel is centrally located with easy access to the other parts of Manila - i usually just took a cab - the fares are cheap!!
The Hotel staff were extremely courteous and friendly and professional in every respect.
The food - especially the breakfast at the Market cafe was first class and room service was also good.
I was sick for two days and needed the attention of the Hotel doctor - no problem! The doctor came to my room within 15 minutes of the request, wrote me a prescription and that was also delivered promnptly.
I have only good things to say about the hotel, the staff and Filipinos in general!
Hopefully I will make it back again next year!
Excellent Rooms and Service from a Classy Hotel!
Firstly, the hotel was very kind to not charge me for my first night after my flight was delayed and I was not able to arrive until the next day (even though I called after the 6pm cancellation time).
Unfortunately, my room was not ready when I arrived at 3pm to check in, but when I did get my room on the top floor I was amazed by the great views and the beautiful decor.
The bathroom was huge with a giant walk in shower and tub. The bed was very comfortable with lots of pillows and down comforter.
Service was excellent. The concierge recommeded a great Italian restaurant. Bellboys were very helpful in getting taxis, which is good since this is not located in the main business area (Makati). But since taxis are so cheap it ok.
Location is great for the Convention Center and there is some very nice nightlife within walking distance and on the walkway near the bay.
Definitely would stay there again for business or pleasure.
Fabulous, Plush, High Class
I arrived to this hotel from a 18+ hour flight from the US. It was around 10am local time, but the hotel graciously allowed me to check in early. I booked a "Regency Suite". Upon check-in I was escorted to the Regency Club level on floor 10 for a more private check-in. They assigned me to a suite on floor 15. It was very nicely decorated. Very nice mood lighting.
The view from my suite was very nice. I did notice that the best views are reserved for the "Presidential" or "Executive" suites with 180 degree views of Manila Bay. But I still like my view from the "Regency" suite.
The Regency Club is also nice with free beverages and beer.
My only suggestions:
Expand the buffet hours at the Market Cafe to serve tourists from different time zones.
Awesome Service - Great Location for Partying!
Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila is definitely a high-class 5 Star hotel. The rooms are very nicely designed and the staff all provide excellent service. The hotel is in a great location if you enjoy night life. It's also within 2 to 5 minutes walking distance from a big shopping mall to keep you busy during the day. Even though the hotel is located in Malate, it's close enough for you to get to Makati within 20 to 30 minutes (cheap cab fare!) Definitely a great place to stay.
Amazing design, kind staff, very professional Food & beverage team!!
TO BE EXPERIENCED!
