THE HERITAGE HOTEL MANILA

I received an SMS from my sister saying they are checked-in at the Heritage Hotel Manila together with my parents, and it has been a week since they stayed there. Then I replied:  "wow! ang sosyal nyo naman!"

The Heritage Hotel Manila is definitely one of Manila's luxurious hotels that will pamper every visitor to an unimaginable royalty-like living and comfort at its best.  As a sojourner of the Metropolitan Manila, I have always recognized the bas-reliefs carved on this building situated at Roxas Boulevard Pasay City.  But I never had the opportunity to visit or even just wander in the vicinity of the hotel.

Thus, this is a rare opportunity to visit the hotel which I should never miss.




I am never used to staycations in Metro Manila although I have been planning to do the same when my schedule permits.  My parents were actually invited by a former PAGCOR Official (a family friend) to stay in the said hotel.  And so, with no other option as if I should have, I hurried down to The Heritage Hotel and wrapped up my meeting during that day.

The grand architecture of the hotel is a sight to behold with ceilings and interiors intricately decorated and suited to provide an elegant style of transient living.  The reception lobby is so spacious unlike other hotels and is definitely a mark of the notable structures of the "Old Manila".  While many modern and state of the art facilities' hotels mushroom the metropolis nowadays, the charm of the old ones remain, such as The Heritage Hotel Manila.



OUR FAMILY ROOM


The room was well-ventilated and lighted spacious enough for a group of four (4).  The toilet and the bath room is separated by a curtain which is a plus factor for me.  Along with the accommodations comes the complimentary toiletries like any other hotel.  

THE FOOD

The gastronomic experience at the hotel was definitely a treat fit for a royalty.  Buffet dinner was served when I arrived, and without much reviews as I am not an expert on cuisine, the photos would reveal how appetizing their entries on the cameras were. 









This is a five-star deluxe hotel and so I could not give a detailed review for fear of missing some points and I won't be able to give justice to the quality of service, facilities and amenities that this world class hotel offers.  

One could never miss the elegant facade of this Hotel as it is situated at the crossroads of Roxas Boulevard and EDSA Metro Manila's main and central thoroughfares.  It is further the home of a 24-hour PAGCOR-Heritage Casino but according to one of the former officials of PAGCOR who invited my family to stay, the casino shall be closed any time soon.  If I am not mistaken it shall end this June of 2013.

Being a rare circumstance, I am fortunate to have experienced how it feels to stay at The Heritage Manila.
