The 5-Star Marriott Hotel Manila at Resorts World Manila
Today we take a look at the Marriott Hotel Manila, which is one of the three hotel properties at Resorts World Manila. The main focus of this hotel is probably business meetings and social events like weddings.
The lobby lounge is spacious with several zones marked by the different furnishings.
One of the areas is at the far end, near the garden with floor-to-ceiling windows, which allow you to enjoy the greenery and sunshine in air-conditioned comfort.
Fancy a glass of wine? Help yourself! This is a nifty wine dispenser, the first I've ever seen in a hotel.
The Marriott Cafe is on the ground floor.
This is where you get to enjoy your buffets (especially breakfast!) and all-day dining.
If you fancy fine-dining, there's Cru Steakhouse just around the corner from the cafe. A certified US Angus ribeye (250g) goes for PHP2,200 (about US$52). The Australian Tajima Wagyu will set you back PHP3,500 (about US$82).
Of course, the Marriott comes with a fully equipped Business Centre (left), and a spa. Quan Spa includes a 24-hour gym, sauna, steam and hot whirlpools. Work up a sweat and then relax. Sounds great.
The outdoor pool is a little small though.
But let's head inside and check out the rooms. Here's one of the one-bedroom Executive Suites.
Enter and you'll see a work area that's set in warm woods with elements of glass and steel. Internet access (high-speed, wired and wireless) is available for a fee.
Facing that is a TV lounge for you to kick back and relax after your work is done.
A nice king-size bed in this 72sq m suite.
Bathrooms are neat and elegant.
And you can see through the bathroom to the bedroom and vice versa. No worries, there is a retractable shade if you prefer privacy.
This is the only one of the three hotels we didn't get to stay at, but it's a five-star business hotel and the Marriott name we are all familiar with.
