Classic Hotel

Posted Aug 24, 2016
Pros: Everything from check in to check out.
Cons: I just had an embarassing experience with their security personnel when I was stopped from playing their old piano for no reason.
It was a great hotel in Manila. Staff were nice and pleasant. Our room was decent, clean and comfortable. We love the soft bed and pillows. Washroom was perfect. Fantastic buffet, so many choices and delicious, but a bit pricey though.

Enjoyable stay

Posted Aug 19, 2016
Overall the stay was great, the only problem I had was the shower door not closing all the way, there was not enough clearance between the top of the shower door and the ceiling, it was practically scrapping it.

Posted Aug 15, 2016
I expressed my dissatisfaction with privacy of private information and asked to speak with GM. Nobody contacted me back.

Needs improvement

Posted Aug 8, 2016
Public areas are excellent. Rooms need renovation. Carpeting terrible condition. Bedding is terrible. Single bed size has no room to move. I booked 3 rooms. I asked for extra bedding supplies and I was told they don't have extra. When I talk to supervisor, I got my request. My sister in the other room ask for bedding request. She was told we reached limit of bedding supply as I have already asked for it. They require to copy private information such as passport and drivers license or they will not check you in. I asked how is my information protected for privacy of info and the front desk manager asked why was I concern? I asked to speak with GM and I will receive a call. I did not receive a call for duration of stay. Please note all other staff in rank and file position are very nice but they are just following hotel policy which is so far behind any civilized prestigious hotel

Five star hotel with 5 star service

Posted Aug 4, 2016
Pros: Excellent service, great breakfast selection.
From the moment we entered the hotel we were given an excellent service. Staff is very friendly and accomodating. We lost one of the keys to one of our luggages and they came up to help us break the lock. Staff really does everything to make sure their guests are happy. We requested a tour of the McArthur Suite and we were accommodated. Excellent tour. Breakfast is the best we ever had anywhere in the world. The rooms are nicely laid out, beds are very comfortable. We booked 2 rooms, they didn't have adjoining available but we were given 2 rooms next to each other. My kids loved it so much that they want to come back. I booked through Expedia for 2 rooms, 2 adults and 1 child in one room. It said breakfast is included so I assumed its for 3 people for that room. We were charged for my 9 year old daughters breakfast. Sent Expedia several emails hoping to resolve this before we check out but never received a reply from Expedia. I'm very disappointed with Expedia for not answering my emails.

Pros: Frühstückdbuffet
Cons: Emailadressen auf der Homepage funktionieren nicht (war etwas schwierig das Hotel bezüglich Transfer zu kontaktieren)
Ausgezeichnetes Frühstück mit großer Auswahl an europäischen und asiatischen Speisen. Sehr freundliches und aufmerksames Personal. Nette Hotelbar mit guten Preisen. Flughafentransfer hat sehr gut funktioniert und war preislich in Ordnung.
