ST. GILES HOTEL: AT THE CORE OF MAJOR BUSINESS AND CULTURAL HUB

Neon lights flash on each corner.  The fusion of pub crawlers and corporate slaves is inevitable.  One weekend lead us to Metro Manila’s vibrant central business district, specifically at Makati Avenue.  From the busy and chaotic area that surrounds, there is a comfortable oasis in the name of St. Giles Hotel.

The overnight stay’s intention was simply to relax sans the night parties and drinking sprees.  But the latter is irresistible. The alternatives of a venue for a drinking spree is broad, as all those are just a door step from the hotel.  And so a short spree commenced.

The glass-walled hotel situated at the corner of Makati Avenue and Kalayaan Avenue has an interesting façade.  It is a landmark in itself when in Makati City.  Entering the reception area, the bell boy and the security guard is quick enough to assist guests of their luggage.  In my case, even the opening of the car that drops you off the entrance door became their instant duty. 

In no time, the key card was handed over to me and with security features on access to elevators, I was ushered to my assigned room.


DELUXE TWIN-BED ROOM

St. Giles Makati has 512 elegantly designed guestrooms.  Contemporary furnishings with light neutral tones embellish the room.  We were assigned to a twin-bed room that comes with broadband internet access, LCD TV with satellite channel, electronic safe, long bath and shower, coffee/tea facilities.  Complimentary toiletries and a spacious bathroom with bath tub facility is one of the standout features of the room.

The room may appear simple but it is indeed comfortable.  With blackout curtains, we could sleep for more hours without noticing it’s already late in the afternoon.

The rooftop bar and indoor pool with a panoramic view of the city skyscrapers that surround would have been a good idea at night.  But we opted to lounge on a nearby bar and instead visited the roof top before we checked out in the afternoon.  It indeed provides a good unobstructed vantage for a panoramic view of the city.

BAY LEAF RESTAURANT AND LOUNGE

Mornings at the hotel is a feast of delectable meals with an open kitchen.  The in-house restaurant is situated at Level 2 serving a fusion of Filipino, Asian and Western cuisine.  We had our complimentary breakfast at the said restaurant and providing a relaxing ambiance, we actually lounged for hours until it was time for lunch and for check-out.
