Ideally located in the business and financial district of Makati, this hotel is just a 1km away from the Ayala and Greenbelt Commercial Centre, the country's most prestigious shopping and entertainment venue. Close to it are head offices of top corporations and banks. Guests arriving at the hotel step into an atmosphere that is distinctly Old World. One is reminded of the ambience of a gracious turn of the century Filipino house. A strong sense of tradition is reinforced by various Philippine arts and crafts that have been understatedly blended into the hotel's design and decor. Fitted with burnished wood reflecting the warmth of home, the accommodations are ideal places for rest and relaxation. Guests can enjoy a dip in the outdoor pool or visit the cosy cafe for a drink and a light snack. For a more substantial mean the in-house Japanese restaurant can be trusted.
