Our Home Away From Home - The Peninsula - Manila

This is the hotel in Makati where I first stayed when visiting my wife. We were engaged at the waterfall in front of the hotel and became our home away from home when we go to the Philippines, suite 314. Despite the PNP shooting the hotel's lions and Christmas tree it is still the best hotel in Manila.

I recently stayed at the Peninsula for vacation in October in one of the new Makati suites. The room was abosolutely perfect.

Very large, modern, comfortable and classy. The service was first rate, everyone was wonderful and attentive. Even with construction going on I barely even noticed and they go out of there way to make sure it doesnt interfere with your stay. The pool and spa were fantastic, had a message at the spa and it was wonderful.

The food in the lobby and for room service was great. The location of the hotel is perfect for getting around and I like the size not being as big as some of the other hotels in the area for more personalized service. I really felt at home here and never was uncomfortable the entire week. The charges for services around the hotel get a little steep so you might want to monitor those, like laundry and food, but other then that for level of service you get, the price is acceptable. I plan on returning in a month for another 2 week stay and consider this hotel my home away from home in the Philippines.
