We admitted in several posts that we love comfort whenever we are traveling. You will notice as well in our Hotel Overview page that we prefer to stay from mid-range to luxury hotels. We are not budget travelers, and we haven’t stayed in a hostel, a homestay or an Airbnb. We are not luxury travelers either. We can not afford to always stay in luxurious hotels and resorts. However, once in a while, we treat ourselves to luxury.
On one of Handel’s trip to the Philippines, we decided to stay in Manila Hotel. This hotel is grand, elegant, classy and gracious. The staff is even dressed in Philippine’s traditional clothes. Most of the politicians and celebrities stay in this hotel. That’s why they have a tight security. They have dogs to smell your luggage, metal detector, and baggage x-ray. You can’t even use the elevator if you don’t have a key card.
This was not our first stay at the Manila Hotel, but this was my first time staying in a suite. We were like kids in a candy store! Manila Hotel has different suites: MacArthur Suite, Sunset Suite, Presidential Suite, Intramuros Suite, Veranda Suite, Honeymoon Suite, Heritage Suite and MacArthur Executive Floor. They also have regular rooms: Superior Deluxe and Grand Deluxe.
Here’s our suite. Enjoy!
It was truly a sweet stay. We can’t wait for our next stay in a luxury hotel.
Location: One Rizal Park, Manila, Philippines, 0913

Booking a Flight. When finding cheap flights, we try a combination of search engines to ensure we’re not missing out on the best deals. We use SkyScanner, Expedia, Kiwi.com, Kayak, and Google Flights, then compare them to the prices shown on the airlines’ website.
Booking an Accommodation. We prefer staying in hotels. Booking.com is our favorite when it comes to finding the cheapest rate. Again, it won’t hurt to check the hotel’s main website. They usually offer discounts for booking directly with them. For last-minute booking, check out HotelTonight. There are also other types of accommodation like Airbnb, hostel (Hostelworld has the largest inventory), and Couchsurfing.
Sightseeing & Tours. We like DIY tours – it gives you freedom and flexibility. You can take advantage of the CityPass and Sightseeing Pass. But we have joined in several tours that maximized our time and made our trip easier. Feel free to check out Intrepid, and Trusted Tours & Attractions for discounted offers.
