Manila is the capital of the Philippines in Southeast Asia. As the country’s commercial hub, Manila also offers great attractions to suit all travellers. If you are in town, the Manila Marriott Hotel is a great choice to explore these attractions. As part of the Marriott Hotel group, the hotel is situated less than 1 km (slightly over half a mile) away from the Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport, allowing guests to reach the city within minutes!
A 5-star guest room
After a long flight, a comfortable hotel room is what we dream of. The Marriott Manila fulfills this wish with its 5-star guest rooms, with room rates starting from 8200 PHP (171 USD). A good variety of channels, such as HBO are available for movie addicts. Bed sheets are clean, and additional pillows can be requested to meet your comfort.
You will also be warmly welcomed with complimentary mangoes in your room. Mango is a very popular fruit in the Philippines, and they are very sweet. You must try those mangoes as well as the dried mangoes that you can purchase from the local supermarkets.
Soak away your fatigue in the bathtub
Tired travelers will be delighted to know that bathtubs are available in the bathrooms where you can soak away your tension and fatigue. There is a blind in the bathroom that you can draw up to reveal the entire bedroom, or choose to leave it down to have more privacy. The tub may be a little small for couples, but cuddling up could be fun as well!
Get healthy at the gym and pool
An open pool is available on the second level of the hotel, next to the gym. The pool is not huge, and tends to get crowded on the weekends. A pool bar is also located here, and is perfect if you intend to grab a drink and chill by the pool. On the other hand, the gym is spacious and offers several stations and equipment. Sweat it out and lose those calories before you continue your hunt for the delicious local dishes around Manila.
Grab a bottle of fruit juice to kick start the day
Breakfast is complimentary (inclusive in the room) rate at the Marriott café on level one. The busiest period is from 8:30am-9:30am, so you may want to go before or after that, as breakfast hours are from 6:30am-10am. The café offers a generous variety of food ranging from pastries to Japanese sushi. You’d also treated to unlimited bottles of juices, which you can help yourself to during breakfast. They are promised to refresh you in the morning!
Try your luck at the Resort World Casino
You may be the next jackpot winner! The Marriott Manila is connected to the Resort World Casino, which is open around the clock. The age limit for entry is 18 years old, and they will check your passport, or I.D. if you look younger than the age limit. There is a guide book in the hotel room on how you play the various games, such as Blackjack at the casino. Do read the guide if you are keen to play. Alternatively, try out the idiot-proof jackpot machines, which require no knowledge and purely luck to win.
If the casino is not your cup of tea, shopaholics will be delighted to know that the hotel is also connected to the Newport Mall. The mall carries high-end luxury brands and offers a wide variety of dining options if you do not wish to dine at the hotel.
