Mandarin Hotels are bywords among local businessmen, expatriates and even returning tourists to the Philippines. And one of the most occupied in Makati City is Mandarin Hotel Manila, which is located in the heart of the financial center of the country.
Businessmen, United Nations organizations, European, American and even domestic companies hold their meetings, product launchings and conferences at Mandarin Hotel Manila.
Why is this?
One, the service is the best in Asia and even comparable to European standards since the hotel is managed by Europeans.
Second, it is located on Makati Avenue corner Paseo de Roxas in the heart of Makati.
Third, it has a grand ballroom convertible to function rooms when less than a hundred guests are to be accommodated.
Fourth, all your destinations are within walking distance from Mandarin Hotel Manila–church, modern library, shopping center, cinemas, hospitals, fast-food outlets, convenience stores, Japanese or Korean stores, restaurants and even night life entertainment joints.
Even embassies and other consulates are also within walking distance from Mandarin Hotel Manila. Of course you can use the hotel’s limo services if you need to travel around Metro Manila.
The Manila Golf & Country Club and the Manila Polo Club are about a three-minute drive away on a Sunday morning, when there’s no traffic in Makati.
Also, if you opt to stay at the hotel on a weekend, you can use the hotel’s swimming pool, gymnasium and nearby sports clubs at reasonable fees. A mini-golf range is also within walking distance from Mandarin Hotel Manila.
And if you want to commute around Makati, air-conditioned Filipino jeepneys pass by the hotel. Or you may take a ride in one of the two electric-solar powered jeepneys recently launched by the local government and Greenpeace and other groups to reduce gas emission in the area.
But what makes Mandarin Hotel Manila a magnet among businessmen is its menu and music and entertainment at Captain’s Bar, which is at the mezzanine of the hotel.
What’s more, the parking fees are very reasonable compared to other hotels in its class in the vicinity.
Mandarin Hotel Manila has won scores of awards given by international organizations for its superb accommodation, fast and courteous service, cleanliness, business centers and other services which are second to none in the industry.
Mandarin Hotel Manila is the usual home in the Philippines for visiting European and Asian dignitaries and even internationally known entertainers. One of the regular clients of Mandarin Hotel Manila is the country’s oldest most read magazine in the country, the Philippines Free Press, which will hold its centennial anniversary next year at the hotel.
Another popular client is the local government of Makati City, the richest local government in the Philippines. Every year the city government holds its anniversary bash and beauty pageants at the Mandarin Hotel Manila.
Hundreds of clients would swear that the services offered by Mandarin Hotel Manila are the best in the region and second to none.
