- This is a hotel that breathes history. It is perfect for those who want to step back in time and imagine what Manila was like in its American influenced colonial years. The opposite of modern and glitzy, it's decorative details such as wood paneling and capiz shells lights give it an old world feel. And if you close your eyes and listen to the orchestra playing in the lobby, you can almost see General MacArthur walking through the classic grand entrance to the place he called home from 1935-41. Although about an half hour away from the modern business center of Makati, it is a good location for exploring old Manila areas such as Intramuros and Malate.
