The InterContinental (Manila, Philippines)

We stayed here for a few days on a stopover, and enjoyed ourselves despite the typhoon that arrived on our second day.

The staff were quick and pleasant – we ordered room service a few times and were impressed with the speed that it reached us. The hotel was in a great location: close to the airport and close to the malls – a 1 minute walk to the closest (Glorietta) malls and from there most malls interconnect though walk ways. We were able to borrow huge umbrellas from the concierge when the typhoon hit, we just had to give our room details. The onsite spa was fantastic, we had a number of massages and treatments and our room was large and clean.

On the other hand, the buffet breakfast incredibly expensive (not included in the room rate), however there is a small restaurant opposite the hotel that does a buffet breakfast for less than a quarter of the price. Internet was available in the room, however it was expensive and slow.

We booked through their website direct, with a fantastic deal, so it was well worth the money. We completely enjoyed being pampered for a few days!
