On all my adventurous trips Ive been taking lately, after weeks of cold showers, sharing my accommodations with various insects and critters, waking up to pigs and roosters, and getting very dirty getting there... I go for a splurge one night in a nice hotel.
Manila is a big city, lots of people, lots of poverty, crime, and traffic...and the …

The sunset at the Manila Bay is always a photographer's favorite subject. My version of this subject was taken with my Olympus E PL3. Vivid color, clear and crisp. Simply awesome...

A Magnifique Experience!

My suprise visit to the Philippines

A travel blog entry by claudia0105

After another long drive on a sleeper bus from Laos (Vientiane) I arrived in Bangkok at 5am. The bus should have taken us to Morchit station. However the driver just dropped us in a middle of a road, surrounded AGAIN from Tuc Tuc drivers.
We all look a bit worried because of the political commotion in Bangkok and just wanted to leave the street …

My Fav City

A travel blog entry by matchstix20

If you intend to shop, dine and enjoy, Manila is the best place to visit. Except that you have to be patient with the traffic, road system, the dusts. But, in terms of cost, this is a haven for travellers especially on shoe string budget.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila

    No customer service at all

    from

    We have 2 rooms reservation 1 room should have 2 kids and 2 adult and the other room should be 2 adult, both our rooms requested 2 beds, but instead we both got 1 king bed, I cannot imagine how 2 kids and 2 adult will fit in one king bed. Bed & bedspread are very worn out. My brother has to return to front desk 11 times before we can get our room ready, one room was ready but the other room, did not get in till 6 pm. This is the only hotel I have known that charge for ice and for the use of tennis court that they call amenities. From the front desk to restaurant there is no customer service. Food is very expensive with the limited choice of restaurant. Entry card to our room never work properly. Big mistake to prepaid our room, seven days of headache.

    Loved the view

    from

    We stayed at this hotel Jan.3 2006. Check in pretty slow but friendly and accomodating staff.We requested ocean view rooms(2 rooms) and got them both. Beautiful Manila bay at night plus pool view was amazing. Nice grounds and big rooms. Bathrooms need some renovation and need more staff on the front desk will be nice. I was pretty impressed when we went to eat breakfast(complimentary breakfast)the staff knows who we are.We will definitely stay at this hotel again . I hope next time their bathrooms will be as nice as Mandarin Hotel in Makati.

    TERRIBLE

    from

    The hotel has a nice view, I can't complain about that, however, the service is bad. First, we reserved a room for 4 people and they gave us 2 twin beds. Then, we were told that we got upgraded from a smoking room to a non-smoking room which we requested anyway when we reserved the rooms. We ask for extra pillows and they charge us 100 pesos per pillow. We played in the tennis court and the driving range and they charge us a fee plus a fee for each ball boys (4) which we did not even ask to have. They said our breakfast comes with the room, but then when we check out they charged us for the breakfast and not to mention overcharge us. Whenever we complain about the bill, each person tells us that it will be adjusted in the front desk but nobody in the front desk got notified. No security at all. My sister went to my room when we were not there and ask the cleaning person to open the door for her and they opened it. No security at the door either. They check cars coming in when they feel like it. I will never stay there again in my life.

    Very Average

    from

    We stayed at the Westin in mid Nov. Rooms have a nice view of Manila Bay, but the interior of the rooms were very disappointing - they were old, including the bathrooms and generally did not have an inviting feel. We have stayed at the Westin in Melbourne before which was FAB and were really disappointed this time.

    Westin Phil Plaza Stay

    from

    Nicely located by the seafront, we stayed here in early Nov 2005. We were first checked into an awful room on the first floor. Going back to reception, they moved us without question to the third floor.

    This room was much better, but I think the common areas throughout the hotel need refurbishing. Just general upgrading of the decorations is needed. They were rebuilding the Plaza area when we stayed there, so there was a lot of building work going on which was a bit of a nuisance.

    The grounds of this hotel are delightful - spacious and right on the Bay. We stay there mainly because of the grounds and the great pool area. Our kids love it. we would stay here again because of the good internet rates - but only after they complete the building work!

    A pleasant surprise

    from

    I had an idea that this particular hotel was one past its prime, having seen its glory days and now pretty much on the over the top of the curve. I was quite surprised at the level of service that they still have!

    Plaza was great

    from

    Had a fantastic stay at the Plaza. Food great, pool area stunning, cheap beers, fun entertainment. View from our hotel room awesome. The staff were always smiling and friendly. Lobby lounge has a patisserie with to-die-for pastries and cakes. Delicious food at the Sports Bar and Treasure Island. If I went to Manila again I would stay there.
