I totally felt comfortable here and would go back and highly recommend this hotel to others.
Pros: Rooms are great, we love the great big windows giving us a great view of the city and the pool.

Nice atmosphere at Long Bar.

Cons: Horrible nightmare. They threw me out on the street due to a glitch in kayaks own get a room site. Get a room claims that my credit card had issues, which Is inaccurate. On the second day of my stay, they told me to pay double or go. What a disaster!
The manager on duty showed no compassion to make a common sense decision to charge me the agreed upon rate with a new credit card. They refused to do something so simple and off I went onto the street. I will never stay at a shangri la again, the makati property gave similar problems to me and I had to pay twice in order to stay there since it was 11 pm. Shangri la is not shangri la . It is hell.

Pros: The folks at the Ascott were super friendly, from the front door, to check in on the 6th floor, the restaurant was very good, staff attending to the room all were outstanding. Have been coming to PI for 10 years 20 plus trips. 1st stays were at New World, last 6 years have been at the Dusit...price/value was better in comparison than both of those hotels...we were in the old wing, rooms were spacious, we did check out the newly remodeled wing and it is newer for sure...the location next to Glorietta was great and only a 12 minute walk thru the mall to get to the Greenbelt Mall and theaters. We will be staying at the Ascott from now on. PS loved the pool area and the Jacuzzi
Cons: There was nothing to complain about at all
Pros: service, facility, location, rates
Cons: Ascott could not locate my reservation even when given my confirmation number and booking agents number. Front desk did not know what to do, they wanted to charge me double my original paid reservation and credit my paid reservation when it came through.....WHAAAAAT! Very late and tired, no one offered to make it right, front desk seem to have attitude. I finally called Kayak and had them locate original reservation which was faxed to front desk. Front desk calls me to tell me they have fixed it and I clearly told them... I FIXED IT BY CALLING KAYAK...which is something they should've done in the first place!!!!!
Pros: We stayed here only because we missed our flight and the Holiday Inn was full. We wanted to stay near the popular shopping areas (Glorietta and Greenbelt). The location was excellent and they upgraded our room so we had a washer/dryer, kitchen and separate bedroom. This was perfect because we desperately needed to do laundry and didn't want to spend extra money on laundry service. It was also nice that we could cook our own meals and didn't have to spend a ton eating out and the Landmark grocery store was only a short walk away.
Cons: We will probably not stay here again because they allow smoking in the rooms so once we made it home, all of our clothes that we just washed smelled like cigarette smoke. The worse part was the little ants that crawled around the whole room even the dining room table. We noticed it the second day there and had all of our luggage on the floor so we were paranoid that ants got into our luggage. We even found some crawling in bed with us. We were very ready to leave.

From the moment we booked the reservation, to first arrival, first meal and checking out, the staff was amazing...helpful, cheerful, first rate service and they all clearly enjoyed their jobs very much. The manager Vanessa was fabulous as was the supervisor in the restaurant....I am guessing the owners provide a quality work environment for them. As a lifetime business owner, I truly appreciate a well run facility. We definitely plan to return to Makati City and while there are fancier hotels available right near by, we agree that City Garden will be our home in Manila. Hope this hotel remains a well kept secret so there will be space available for us when we return over Christmas.
Pros: The hotel staff FAR exceeded my expectations...as good or better than any five star resort. The breakfast buffet was fabulous! Loved the rooftop pool and gym in penthouse. We stayed for 9 days, left for a few days, then happily returned to City Garden :)
Cons: Having to leave....

Cons: Kayak site displayed error page when booking did not complete. No confirmation or notification. When booking resulted in completion, confirmation page and email notification was received almost instantaneously. Customer found out at the hotel during check-in that there were two/duplicate reservations. Hotel staff insist no-show as reason to charge the other unoccupied room unless getaroom.com validate the reason for duplicate reservations was not customer's fault. Hotel will not refund, getaroom washes hands and point to Kayak. Maybe Kayak will genuinely care for its customer to help resolve issue.
Pros: Courteous staff and always willing to lend a hand. Valet parking was available at no extra cost plus it was handed to us clean after a night's rain.
Our wifi was down during our stay but since my other family members were staying at a diff room, we did not bother to complaint and instead used their wifi.
Fireworks during the nye was scheduled at 12:10 so we waited until 12:30 but there was none.
I had a good night sleep as the bed and covers were really soft and comfy. Will stay here again for their relaxing ambience and good service.

Pros: everything about dusit thani. shoutout to robee, mai, ramil, mon flores, warren and everyone else who made our stay very special and memorable.
Pros: I could not find anything wrong with this properties amenities, customer service and their focus on customer satisfaction I have only found in 6star properties and exclusive resorts. I would definitely make this my first destination for business and family, I would also recommend Dusit Thani-Manila to all my colleagues local and abroad.
I came to this property for 2 reason's, 1st: came recommended by a family friend which I trusted and thankfully took her advice, 2nd: for our honeymoon getaway, which is close to everything(e.g. shopping, airport, other friends and easily accessible to public transportstion(e.g. Uber, Grab, taxi, buses, jeepney and tricycle).
I would highly recommend this hotel, the frontdesk staff and concierge are well above my expectation but over staff members we were awesome.
Cons: I wish I could've stayed longer but I had to get back to reality, but I can't wait for my next visit next year for my first year anniversary and to bring my extended family to experience true customer service.
Pros: Employees goes extra mile to give a good customer service , definitely my 25 th anniversarry we will stay in Dusit Manila, and everytime a family or friend will visit Philippines I will recommend Dusit hotel I really enjoy staying in that hotel.not to mention I came 14 hours ahead of my flight and Dusit was fully book but they still find a way to accommodate me that was 12 midnight and they just want to make sure I can rest that night after 20 hours flight .
Pros: The staff is very friendly and they always remember my name. The location is excellent for shopping, dining and doing business. Great buffet breakfast.
Cons: 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.
Pros: Value for money
Pros: It was a room.
Cons: 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.
Pros: Every thing about this hotel such as cleanliness , facilities,comfort , location and the friendly staff
Cons: Actually nothing
Pros: Breakfast was very good and staff pleasant
Cons: 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!
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Pros: great service. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean. Not modern but very comfortable.
Cons: perfume fragrance in the lobby
Pros: 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
