THE PENINSULA HOTEL - MANILA

THE PENINSULA HOTEL
MANILA, PHILIPPINES

In my opinion, The Peninsula Hotel in Manila is the finest hotel in the World. It is a sanctuary of relaxation in the middle of a very large and sometimes dirty city. Located in Makati, The Peninsula is walking distance to some of the best shopping and dining spots in the city. What I like most about the Peninsula is the great service. Every employee in the hotel recognizes you and says hello or goodbye 24 hours a day. Service here is genuine and at a level not seen at any other Peninsula or five star hotel in America or Asia. I love the grand lobby with it's towering ceiling and open air feel. Most of the day and night there is live music that fills the lobby with sounds of joy. I can sit in the lobby for hours. Eating, reading, talking or just people watching. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and super ice cream creations are served in the lobby. It is the gathering place for the Manila elite and for common folks who just want to enjoy the beauty of one of the greatest hotels on earth. I love the Peninsula Manila. This is where I stayed all the years I was courting and visiting Shirley. Our wedding reception was held on the second story of the lobby. Truly magical then and now.  Security is very tight in all of Manila. All vehicles are screened by security and bomb sniffing dogs prior to entering the driveway fronting the lobby. Prior to entering the hotel more bomb sniffing dogs check you and your bags. There is then a metal detector, body scan and search of hand held items. The entire process is quick and efficient. You encounter the same type of security when entering malls in Manila. Guards and metal detectors are everywhere.
