There are several reasons why you go out of town these days but there are a few reasons to stay within Metro Manila. I saw one a few weeks ago in the heart of Pasay City, the Philippines gateway to the world. This new place is Remington Hotel - Manila.
Good looking, warm people welcome you upon checking in which actually just took me a few seconds. Honestly, I felt quite at home right from the get go. These guys made sure you get comfortably settled in and ask you for what they can do more to get you fixed up. This place is inside the fabulous compound of Resorts World Manila. You might think this place might be too exaggeratedly expensive because of that but it's so reasonable! Best of all, the proximity to the entertainment center, restaurants, the domestic and international airport is unbelievable you can literally walk to these structures in minutes!
Serviced Apartments are available too. You should get these for that more "intimate" and "private" moments, This has the garden as the view.
There are two room types available in Remington Hotel Manila which certainly is perfect for the budget traveler. I happened to stay in the Standard Room (costs PHP 3,900.00++) which I was able to enjoy later on. The other room is a Serviced Apartment which costs around PHP 4,900.00++ and is quite nice as well since it has its own sofa bed to entertain guests as well. How I wish I got my special someone to go with me but she had to work. I wanted to go alone up the rooms and get some rest after a long shift in the office. It's so nice this lad even assisted me with my stay, they go the extra mile to get me comfy.
They gave me 2 electronic keys so I can leave the other one in my room to get it colder, although I'd never complain about that since Remington Hotel does not disappoint in air conditioning because my room went so cold in a couple of minutes! Aesthetically I love the long hallways and common areas in the middle where you can eat or prolly share a story or two with co travelers. They'll get large comfy seats in these areas too so a conversation would take you miles as your heart wishes!
They've got your bathroom essentials covered so you basically just bring yourself to the hotel and you can do anything to your heart's content.
The Standard room could easily fit four people or 2 adults and 2 kids so if you plan to bring your family too its not a challenge for them at all! This room was intended for Two (2) adults only. Complimentary stay for up to two (2) children below twelve (12) years old without an extra bed (this one's got 2 queen size beds anyway! makes sense?!)
The room I got had a hot and cold shower, bathroom with bidet spray, the usual bathroom amenities that include soap dispensers, shampoo, bath gel, hand soap and tissue paper. 2 standard bath towels, a closet and an In-room safety box.
Don't worry staying in too much in your hotel room because this 32 inch LCD television with cable alone can entertain you morning, noon and night time. There's also Free WiFi courtesy of the hotel, simply dial 00 on your phone there and ask for it. That easy.
Your room can actually have a spectacular view of the surrounding buildings, the resorts world itself or a garden. Since this place is relatively new, they are making it extra special now by planting several local flora so you get to feel what its like in the Philippines. I saw a lot of foreigners there when I stayed overnight.
The lobby area is modern - exquisitely designed and perfect for those short conversations/meetings if you need to do some business off your Philippine trips. Right beside that is their restaurant/bar so if you plan to grab a bite or maybe get something to drink then you won't have to go out of the hotel. If you plan to do so, there are a lot of places you can go to for lunch/dinner in nearby structures. I had my friends meet here so we were talking non stop that afternoon.
