"Great hotel in Metro Manila's Ortigas area"
In The Philippines on business, I stayed at this hotel (located in Ortigas, Pasig, in the heart of Metro Manila's business district). Location was ideal, as it was two blocks from the client's office. The accommodations—a suite, more like a small apartment—were outstanding: clean, cool, comfortable, and roomy. The suite has a complete kitchen, with a full-size refrigerator, stove, sink, microwave, dishes, and utensils. There's a combination washer-dryer in a closet; a full bath with both a tub and a large shower; a spacious bedroom, with a very comfortable bed; a living room with a couch, chair, and desk; and a small dining area with a round table and four chairs, another ideal place to work. The decorations are tasteful and understated, and the view from my room was quite nice.
The Oakwood Room, the hotel's restaurant, has excellent food and a morning breakfast buffet that's well worth the cost, roughly comparable to a breakfast buffet in most U.S. hotels, but with far more variety.
The hotel staff is both competent and very friendly.
If I find myself traveling to Manila again, this hotel will be my first choice for accommodations.
