IF YOU happen to be in Metro Manila and are thinking of a relaxing place to stay, you should consider checking in at Savoy Hotel Manila. An “airport hotel” it definitely is, as the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 is just a stone’s throw away. Here are six reasons that Savoy Hotel should be on your hotel list:
It’s spanking new.
Savoy Hotel Manila just opened its doors last June, which means everything in the hotel is spic and span with that pleasant new hotel scent. Megaworld’s newest “airport hotel” highlights the rewarding comforts that business and leisure travelers seek: a home away from home. In case you’re wondering, the entire development cost a cool P5 billion.
The hotel’s location is luxury in itself.
It begins upon arrival at the airport: you can use Runway Manila, an enclosed air-conditioned walkway 220 meters long, to reach the hotel, which is just right across Terminal 3. If not, car transfer services take only two minutes to get you to Savoy. The expressway near the hotel also significantly cuts travel time to the neighboring business hubs of the metropolis.
All rooms are for real relaxation.
Savoy Hotel Manila has 684 comfortable rooms with ample space ranging from 23 to 27 square meters. You can choose from the most basic standard rooms like Essentials to executive suites such as The Runway, The Space, and The Deck, and rest assured, you’ll get a much-deserved respite amid the urban bustle.
It’s in the midst of a “leisure city.”
Standing elegantly within the 24/7 leisure and entertainment complex of Newport City, the 12-story Savoy Hotel Manila is just a few blocks away from leisure destinations such as Resorts World Manila and Newport Mall. If you wish, you can rent out the hotel’s stylish Mini Cooper to get there, as well as to nearby dining, shopping and entertainment options.
Savoy Hotel’s culinary treats are worth savoring.
For a satisfying gustatory experience, the hotel has three food and beverage outlets: the Savoy Cafe for buffet dining, Zabana Bar for cocktails and drinks, and The Poolside for the perfect chill and indulgence. (Don’t worry, the hotel has a state-of-the-art gym to burn all those calories.) And lastly, serving as an extension of Savoy Cafe, there’s the Connect Lounge, a club lounge exclusive for guests staying at the executive suites.
Connectedness matters at the hotel.
Savoy Hotel Manila offers amenities and facilites that highlight share-worthy experiences. Several guests floors feature these co-working spaces called The Squares, which makes collaboration, leisure, and business interactions more meaningful with high-speed internet connection, ports, books, express counters, and snack corners. All these are perfect for casual group hangouts, intimate chats, and meetings, if not some essential me-time with music and a good read.
