I read some reviews by other quests and this prompted me to offer my review. I am an American from Texas and this was our first visit to the Manila Pavilion Hotel. My fiancee and I stayed Feb 23-26 2011 and we found this 3.5 star hotel to be an excellent choice for the price. The lobby is very spacious, well staffed and well appointed. We never had to touch the entrance or exit doors. Curbside as well as pool entrance security was excellent as was bell service from our taxi to our room. The interior hallways and our room was slightly dated but certainly not outdated, but then the Manila Pavilion Hotel IS a former Holiday Inn Hotel. Again, well worth the price.
Our nonsmoking room and bathroom was clean and well appointed and there was a nice daily display of complimentary shampoo, lotion and a toothbrush kit in the sparkling clean bathroom and tub/shower. The white terrycloth house robe was a nice finishing touch. Extra chairs were requested to our room and they arrived promptly with formal white slip covers attached.
The lounge has a nice band with a male (Jason) and three beautiful female singers quartet on Friday and Saturday night. I do wish the lounge bar was stocked with all the liquors that were listed on the drink menu. I got my requested drink on my third selection. The bartender and our waiter were very friendly and hospitable.
The breakfast buffet was exceptional and was well stocked with every international entree imaginable. There were two chefs who prepared custom omelets. There was every breakfast entree, cereal, juice and bread that you can imagine. The coffee was great! Our table and surrounding eating area was very clean and well appointed. I cannot stress enough how nice and fully stocked this breakfast buffet was!
To summarize, the Manila Pavilion Hotel is a very nice 3.5 star venue and it is priced right. This review is being made six weeks after our stay. The Manila Pavilion Hotel left us with a very favorable impression of our visit. I will certainly book The Manila Pavilion Hotel on a future Manila visit as well recommend it to our friends and associates. I'm confident you will also review this hotel the same as I. Again, a very nice hotel.
