Business Traveler (USA) - - COVER STORY -

Another trusted in­ter­na­tional brand, par­tic­u­larly among busi­ness trav­el­ers, is In­ter­Con­ti­nen­tal. Its con­sid­er­able world­wide rep­re­sen­ta­tion makes it a fail­safe choice when go­ing on far-flung trips. It is renowned for de­liv­er­ing five-star stan­dards wher­ever the lo­ca­tion, but nor­mally with a some­what higher price tag than the Manila prop­erty – par­tic­u­larly con­sid­er­ing this land­mark ho­tel stands in the center of Makati City, the na­tion’s main fi­nan­cial and com­mer­cial hub.

Fa­cil­i­ties: The 332 gue­strooms have a clas­sic earth-tone de­sign, are com­fort­able and well equipped. The health and fit­ness of­fer­ings in­clude a gym, out­door pool and saunas, as well as The Suriya Spa. The busi­ness center is staffed from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and of­fers courier, pri­vate limou­sine and sec­re­tar­ial ser­vices. With seven meet­ing rooms and 15,000 square feet of ded­i­cated space, this state-of-the-art prop­erty has one of the largest con­fer­ence and meet­ing fa­cil­i­ties in the city.

F&B: Prince Al­bert Ro­tis­serie is an old fa­vorite on Manila’s din­ing scene, while Café Jeep­ney dishes up a spread of Filipino and in­ter­na­tional trea­sures. Gam­bri­nus Bar and SolY Sombra, mean­while, serve re­fresh­ing drinks and snacks in a venue with a view of the pool and gar­den, and an al­fresco spot, re­spec­tively.

Price: A deluxe room starts at PHP5,040 ($114), ex­clud­ing tax and an­cil­lary ser­vice charges, when booked 10 days in ad­vance. Can­cel­la­tion fees ap­ply.
