Free shuttle bus to airport and back. Too many to list. no wifi in room.
Convenient to Airport - free shuttle.
Cleanliness No thermostat adjustment
It is only good for night life, adult guests. It was clean and staffs are friendly. Location wise is great for travelling via air. It was close to the airport and they have a shuttle free of charge. I wasn't happy with their centralized A/C. It was so cold and it was hard for my young kids. Their room phone is useless, no one answers from the front desk. There was really nothing for the kids to do in there. Price is expensive. the Rbar breakfast don't have much to offer.
It was good. The hotel was clean and staff were very attending. They need to work in the water that comes to the shower. One moment it was hot and the next very cold.
The rooms were OK. The shuttle service provided along with the resorts world manila was great. Resorts World Manila and Remington seems to have a coordinated efforts to charge as much money to tourist while you're are at their facilities. Resorts World Manila and Remington Hotel have promotions they advertised online that was a waste of time trying to get because of a coordinated effort to send you back and forth for requirements they needed for the promotions. The hotel will give you a blank look when you ask about the promotions, and the Resorts World Manila will change their requirement based on who you speak with at the membership counter. They will things like "We don't accept online booking reservation anymore", "We don't accept the hotel print out anymore", "This is not the hotel print out that we need. You have to go back to Remington and just ask for a print out. They should know", "All you have to do is show them the booking reservation", "We don't accept booking reservations anymore." It was a frustrating first night for a tourist. The free internet service they advertised is only good for checking e-mail. It's not good enough to surf anywhere. The internet speed is super slow, and I only get internet reception while I'm in the room when I stand by the doorway. Forget using it while in bed.
no bath tube just shower shower in bad shape
Location Have to walk thru traffic and rain for breakfast .and with the traffic officer the driver does not yield to the pedestrian very disrespectful to the pedestrian.it seems like the pedestrian must obey the drivers way
close to aiort, great for one night, not Could use more towels and face cloths
proximity to resorts world a plus! shuttle from airport is most important. Staff in front desk were very helpful and efficient. Only thing, staff who assisted in breakfast at late part f morning was not flexible with requests at all but staff for early morning shift was great1
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The lobby is absolutely gorgeous, but the rooms were lacking a little in cleanliness and comfort. Nice for a one night stay. Great location for shopping at the mall, just a short walk across the street. There was a crazy amount of street construction going on. It took 1.5 hours to get from airport to hotel. You must use an experienced Philippino taxi driver!!
It was a room. Hotel is old and needs renovation. I'm sure there are leaks in the bathroom behind the shower walls. Convenient to the airport at 5am.
great service. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean. Not modern but very comfortable. perfume fragrance in the lobby
Breakfast was very good and staff pleasant It's an older hotel! Way over priced! This hotel should be a $60-80 hotel! Unless they have newer rooms I haven't seen, mine was old but hot water was great for Philippines!
the staff was warming and very polite,felt like family from the start.would stay again.location was walking distance from all needs.loved my stay nothing
I asked for them for a cab and was charged 40 dollars for a 4 dollars ride to the airport. When I said I was not paying I was promptly told it was already charged. At this point I didn't have a lot of time to argue since I had to go to the airport.
Staff is beyond friendly and helpful. Go out of their way to help. Great rooms and very clean. Stayed here 7 times and will come back. Love the location. Nothing to say.
The old rooms are very bad. The moldy carpeting and musty smell will make you sick. The new rooms are nice. But they are also carpeted, and even though the carpet is new, it still smells. Stay away if you have allergies. I was initially sent to the dungeon upon arrival (old room), but was then upgraded to a new room after insisting AND paying extra. The Thai restaurant excellent. The Japanese restaurant should add traditional western wines to its menu - i.e. French, Italian, Spanish wines. The sushi is mediocre. Carpet is not a sustainable building material. Carpet accumulates dirt, allergens and mites deep within its fibers. Moreover, carpet is made of petrochemicals, it does not decompose in landfills and is generally not recycled. The room's flooring material should be tile.
Every thing about this hotel such as cleanliness , facilities,comfort , location and the friendly staff Actually nothing
Value for money
The staff were energetic, friendly and accomodating The breakfast buffet menu need to change daily or at least twice a week.
Lobby with art gallery and orchestra was outstanding. Fitness facility was one of the best. Location is ideal. Strange ardor from the hallway (carpets?) was immediately noticeable and did not fade during our stay. Apparently was on other floors as well. Check in staff member was borderline discourteous.
The staff is very friendly and they always remember my name. The location is excellent for shopping, dining and doing business. Great buffet breakfast.
Nice clean newer hotel! Like most hotels in Manila Area , they are starting to charge a premium like they are New York or Paris ect! It's still the Philippines but poeple are coming and paying these prices so I really can't blame them! I just don't see it, coming here the last 15yrs! the traffic is impossible, so plan on walking!
I liked the location, cleaness of the hotel..beautiful spacious room i think the taxes were too high
The space of the apartment was excelent... Front desk friendlyness might need to be improved.
The service and security level provided by the Ascott's was excellent and to 5 stars international standards. Honesty and responsiveness of front desk personnel is commendable. Bathroom furnishing needs to be enhanced in order to improve averall staying experince.
The floors were extremely dirty. Always had to keep shoes on otherwise feet were black on bottoms. We were even in the penthouse suite where you would think they take more care.
One word - ataraxis.
Nice and clean...It is really 5 stars hotel. The food of breakfast is so so...
I could not say anothing bad about my stay. It is my favorite hotel in Manila. We showed up 4 hours early and was able to get a room hours before check in time. I was also upgraded to a better room since they ran out of regular rooms for us. The guess relations person who helped us was very helpful and pleasant. We had a great stay and the Chi spa was an awesome experience. Though it was on the expensive side, it was well worth it. Bit on the expensive side.
Very good breakfast and gym. Very friendly personal. The booking price was given in U.S. dollars but final settlement can only be done in pesos (PHP). This becomes a problem when the hotel uses an exchange rate of 50 (correct official rate is about 46 - the official exchange rate at the front desk is about 47 something). I spent a lot of time arguing about why I would not just pay an additional 50 US$ for my stay because of this - I had to discuss it 3 times until it was eventually fixed, but I was very late for my plane because of it (even though I had gone twice before checking out to make sure it was ok!). This is my only complaint about the hotel which is otherwise very good. Just make sure you do not pay overprice because of the exchange rate also.
i very much appreciated your upgrading me to a corner room which i have enjoyed during a previous visit (room 909). for several years i stayed elsewhere in manila because i did not like the room assigned to me. but this time i was very happy -- thank you. no complaints...i was very happy at the EDSA shangri-la this visit.
Long line breakfast buffet; needs renovation at the lobby
Friendliness of staff. Safety measurements taken by Hotel. Proximity to Shopping Mall giving options for lunch and dinner. Rooms will need refurbishment pretty soon.
really nice breakfast small pool than in the picture
I was able to do early check in and late check out with no hassle. Also, left my baggage for a couple of days with no problem as well. Hotel amenities were great. Great location if your want to be near the airport and MOA.
Brand new hotel
Rooms are great, we love the great big windows giving us a great view of the city and the pool.
Great service Nice room Excellent breakfast buffet Nice atmosphere at Long Bar. 2700 php for car to airport? Must be a compromise between this and a local taxi at 200 php.
We stayed 3 different times within 3 weeks in this hotel (we went out of town twice between stays). First of all, the service is impecabble. The staff is very warm and welcoming. The location next to 2 huge malls means the availability of many restaurants and retail shops and services. Being a fairly new hotel, the interiors are very nice and clean, yet it feels homey. I totally felt comfortable here and would go back and highly recommend this hotel to others.
Top things about this hotel in order: Location (you cant find any better), Staff, The Bed, Bathroom, Minibar, Spa, The Cityview, and Security. The rates are too exaggerated, You can find other much cheaper hotels with similar qualities, nothing very special about it for such a price
Pool area and the one staff member there was nice. Oh, and the food was top notch. Aside from that, and the facility, I was not impressed. Mostly just frustrating. They told us "no" way too many times for any place in the hospitality industry. To be fair, we're not that needy. They're just a bit too strict for their own good. For one, they refused to give us free wifi access until we had reluctantly signed up to be part of the Hilton rewards club. Also, if you like to enjoy the occasional smoke, this place is similar to a hospital in that you will be told to move elsewhere if you're not in the one place they allow smoking.
This is the best hotel in the area if price and location are your priorities. It is built next to the new part of Glorietta. Elevators are slower than comparable hotel elevators in the area.
The hotel was nice and everything was practical, very business like. Much more my style than the Mandarin Oriental.
The breakfast buffet was stellar. One of the best I've ever had.
Great value for the price. Breakfast is actually more of a brunch buffet. Many choices. Water pressure was excellent. Amenities such as the gym and pool were enjoyable. Double occupancy room may be tight for American travelers; opt for a single bed room instead.
Discovery Suites is spitting distance from the ADB (which uses the hotel a lot). It's very convenient to 2 Starbucks, the Mega Mall, 7-11 and lots of restaurants. The rooms are little suites, with kitchen facilities and a very large bathroom with rain shower (low pressure) or hand held shower-attachment tub (no curtain can = wet floor, hot water supply is not limitless). There are 2 televisions with full cable packages and broadband internet for a fee ($ 15/day). Lighting in the desk area is rather weak (I had to unplug the desk lamp to plug in my laptop) and one could wish for a real lobby in which to wait for cars and people, but room-wise, it's a great location and very acceptable rooms, especially if visiting the ADB.
All things was great at this hotel. I cannot think of anything that would have made my stay better. Its close to the Mall. There are many places to get a bit to eat. The staffs was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. It easy to get a taxis transportation if need, but everything we needed was nearby. Only 45 minutes away from the airport.
From the front desk personnel which includes people that greeted you are very friendly and made me feel at home. Whether they speaking to you in person and over the phone they exceeded my expectations. Overall stay was excellent. Prompt and well informed with flight information since I have to picked a family member, they have services that will accomodate your needs. They have a nurse in house, thats an A+ for me even if I did not avail for that services, my sister was diabetic so at least I know there is help if we need one. Breakfast was okay but not much for a breakfast but I was expecting authentic foods for breakfast as choices. Coming from a different you are craving for filipino food for breakfast but service was always excellent wherever I go. My sheets are changed everyday Oh my gosh! thats an A+ since my sister has allergies, she never had any symptoms nor did I got any allergies from linens. I brought work with me so internet was my link to the other part of the globe but it was not free. It was reasonable but that was the only thing that I did not have. The place was very spacious and clean, safe and very friendly. This place is highly recommended and it is very accesible to malls and for dinning. Thank you.
had a great experience staying here. very close to everything you need. walking dist to podium and mega mall. cabs are easy to get. rooms are nice and spacious. im from los angeles and it felt like having all the comforts of home that u are used to if you are from america. the staff are mostly girls and they were all really cute! i think they only hire good looking girls, but hey thats great for a guy like me. the rooms are all modern and the beds/pillows are very soft. anytime i called for room service of any kind, they were all fast and courteous. i will definitely like to stay here again
This was my 5th stay at Discovery Suites, I will not stay anywhere else while I am in Manila. You are treated like a family member returning home. 5 star service!!!
You are treated like a family member. Excellent customer service, They pay attention to the smallest detail. The hotel is located in the perfect spot, close to shopping, food, and night life. I visit the Philippines two times a year and this is the only hotel I use.
This was my 2nd stay at this hotel with excellent service each time. The staff is a great team. If you are in Manila you must stay.!!!!!!!!!!!
I have stayed at Discovery Suites four times. The service is great. They have a fine exercise facility. The suites are clean and comfortable. It is located close to SM Mega Mall and The Podium.
Check-in is at 2pm. I arrived with a friend from the province very tired at 6am. Had breakfast at a nearby McDonalds while staff prepared a room. Allowed early check-in at 7am. Front desk staff very friendly and accommodating, Always greeted by the bell hops with a greeting and smile. Very nice lobby. Our suite was great! Very nice kitchen (fully equipped with frig., microwwave, coffeemaker, pots, dishes, utinsils, etc.), living area, desk, bedroom and bathroom. It was just like a 5 star hotel back in the U.S. The bathroom had a separate bath and shower. All the typical ammenities were included. The queen size bed was VERY comfortable. We didn't have an ironing board in the room and when asked for one, it was delivered in minutes. When also asked for extra sheets, they delivered them within minutes. Thinking we were cold, staff asked if we would like the temperature in our room to be adjusted. The location of this place is perfect! Within walking distance to SM Mega Mall and Robinsons shopping center, all within 1 to 2 blocks. No taxis needed, however, no problem in getting one. Eateries are everywhere, the Podium is right across the street from the hotel, Starbucks next door and also across the street, McDonalds and Shakeys Pizza a few steps away. The hotel is located in a not so busy street. We felt safe and secure in the hotel and walking the streets in the evening. OH MY, breakfast was included in the price of the room and we had a buffet breakfast on the 22nd floor that was to die for! Again staff was very pleasant! This hotel made an everlasting impression on me and next time I travel back to the Philippines with family, we will always stay here!!!
