I booked this hotel using Starwood points, where I have platinum status. Had no problem checking in upon arrival at 9:30am. Bellman and reception very friendly, offered water or OJ while completing the process. No upgraded room available, but was happy to have a chance to nap after an overnight flight from the US.
We had to switch rooms after a few days due to some soundproofing issues; our new room didn't suffer the same problem. L'Ocitane toiletries, which were very nice. Bottled water in the room is $36 pesos, but there's a supermercado a few blocks away where you can get 1.5L for $4.
There's a small gym in this hotel, or a MUCH larger (and busier) gym in the attached Sheraton. The pool and spa is also located at the Sheraton. I don't know if Sheraton guests are charged, but it's part of the room charge at the Park Tower.
We didn't have breakfast at the hotel, as it's not part of the room when you use points. We did have brunch, and it was very nice, but didn't have many of the things we're used to from US hotel brunches (no omelet or carving stations, really no breakfast items other than fruit and some pastries).
Overall, it's a very nice hotel, and the staff goes out of their way to meet your needs. We had some issues with timely communications, and I wasn't overly impressed with the concierges. We knew what we wanted, but they seemed to direct people to areas rather than particular restaurants.
