Manila Hotels

Manila’s burgeoning proliferation of international-branded, high-end hotels reflects growing business travel demand rather than concessions to tourists – namely boutique charm or character offerings. However, this competition ensures abundant bargains are available at 5-star offerings particularly for those booking in advance on the internet. Budget offerings are mainly found around the Manila Bay area.

The Manila hotels below have been grouped into three pricing categories:
Luxury (over US$175)
Moderate (US$75 to US$175)
Cheap (up to US$75)
These Manila hotel prices are the starting prices for a standard double room and include taxes (VAT 12%) and breakfast unless otherwise specified.

Pan Pacific Manila

+63 2 318 0788.

This luxurious skyscraper hotel in Manila is justifiably popular because of its top-drawer location in Malate’s tourist quarter. It’s worth the extra splurge to access the top-floor, glass-surrounded Pacific Lounge – lovely in the evening for sipping cocktails and listening to the pianist. The Manila hotel also offers 24-hour butler service and Japanese, Chinese and international restaurants. Early-bird bookings on Pan Pacific’s website push prices down into the moderate bracket.
