I stayed for 2 night in this hotel under my boss' name as we conduct recruitment last Aug 2014.
The lobby wasn't that big but the ambience and the smell is really splendid. This is very close to Glorietta and I was advised that there are under passages in the hotel to the shopping malls. We opt not to use it as my boss is a bit uncomfortable with under passages. There are CCTV's within that area but I feel safer walking in Global City. If you need a lot of shopping then this is the best hotel to stay. All big malls are closeby, and unlike Global City, this is where you can find stuff cheaper than Global City.
Breakfast - it is php 1300++ (not included in php 11k+/- per night) I would say is over priced for the taste in addition that Menu selection was just half of Heat (EdsaShangrila). Staff are friendly and helpful too.
Business Lounge - My boss stayed at 7th floor (I was on the 3rd) I would say I prefer the business lounge than the restaurant when it comes to food. In here, they serve light snack on soup spoons that is tasty and satisfying. There are also unlimited and fair selection of beverages that you can't compare than that of the restaurant. The ambience in the lounge is pleasant and the staff are accommodating.
Room - I love the room. I am not sure about the size but the only thing I found different from my boss' room from mine is that oh so wonderful and comfy office chair; and espresso coffee maker.
The room is big and it has high ceiling which is different from other 5 star hotels. The bed and pillows were so comfortable (I chose soft pillows). The baby's cot is waaay better than all other hotels in manila and my baby loved the baby pillows as we'll. (my husband and baby stayed with me on the second night). The phone, electrical outlets and the switches are modern. The room is classy.
Bathroom - the bathroom is classy and spacious. The overhead shower is what I love in it. Even the quality of the slippers is the best I've seen so far. (They should provide L'occitane for toiletries dusit Thani does).
Pool - the Fairmont hotel pool was under construction so the husband and the toddler used the Raffles one and they enjoyed it. It was clean according to the husband.
Business Center - is small but cheaper rates (printing etc.) than Shangrila.
I love this hotel and will definitely come back! Staff are very considerate, helpful and accommodating (until 5pm late check out) thank you.
