This was the hotel which housed General MacArthur for the years after he the liberation of Manila from the Japanese after World War 2.
It boasts a splendid view of Manila Bay and its picture-worthy sunsets.
This used to be the premier hotel in the capital. These days, it's been overtaken by the Western franchises. Nevertheless, the new owners have done a splendid job of renovating and refreshing it.
Come here to stay - or at least have coffee, bibingka or puto bumbong in the lobby.
