Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila: Comfy Stay Amidst the Rains and Floods

During the torrential rain floods since Monday night August 6, me and my boyfriend were checked in at the Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila. My boyfriend who's working for a inflight entertainment company comes here in Manila frequently. Others blog about their first experience so I thought of blogging about Hyatt Hotel since we were very happy with our stays, the food and service that we get from them since 2008. Yes it was back in 2008 when me and my bf are still together and staying in Hyatt Hotel so our relationship now is on-going for 4 years.

What do we love about Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila?

Location. It is strategically situated in the heart of Manila, 30 minutes going to and from the airport and also 1 ride going there by jeep from my residence in Sampaloc, Manila. Not to mention the scenic sunset view of the Manila Bay that you can witness at the Regency Club Lounge during late afternoons.

Food. Oh yes we love the food in Hyatt Hotel. Whether if its room service or one of their in-house restaurants, they always served good food. Most of the time I eat Continental dishes but on the photo I opted for a Filipino Breakfast (P950) which is available 24 hours a day (room service).  I ordered this for dinner because I got back late in the hotel hungry. I had to go home earlier that day to see how my cats were doing because pets are not allowed in the hotel. As a Diamond Member, we enjoyed complimentary continental breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres at the Regency Club Lounge located on the 10th floor of Hyatt Hotel.  I will write more in detail about their food on a separate post.  

Double A's (Accomodations and Amenities). We usually stay on the 33rd floor of the hotel since our room is usually a suite, Club King as they call it; either facing the Manila Bay area or the swimming pool on the other photos shown below.

Complimentary mineral water daily and fresh fruits on top of the mini-bar cabinet.
The mini-bar has a personal ref with cold drinks and liquor then on the side it has some snacks, coffee and tea, cups and glasses too. If I have my own house in the future, I want a mini-bar cabinet in my bedroom too :)

This is one of my favorite spots in our room, the windows area because I don't like a room without or has small windows. I love the curtained large windows plus the comfy red seats and red Roses on top of the coffee table. The windows are also soundproof so you can't hear it when its raining hard outside so you can enjoy a good night sleep and less worries.

My bf is business-minded and sometimes busy checking business emails, preparing for their presentations and demo; he has his own work station in the room. He was away during the day when this photo was taken. We also enjoy complimentary in-room internet access, so me and my boyfriend can be online at the same time since we both have our laptop. The wireless internet access is fast enough though there were times that it gets disconnected from time to time maybe because of the extreme weather. It wasn't like that in our previous stays.

I am also very satisfied with the housekeeping department because they always make sure that our room and bathroom has been cleaned and arranged, toiletries and fresh towels were also provided to us daily during our stay. Their bathroom has a nice interior since it has a separate toilet and shower room and made up of luxurious Italian Marble.

Friday morning was the last day of our stay. The sky was clear and its a sunny day, I can't help it but take a picture of the nice view of Manila from our hotel window. I took this photo before 7am before we headed into the Regency Club Lounge for breakfast. We checked out the hotel around 830am.

Service. We always have been served excellently by the friendly staffs working in and out of the hotel, these include the security guards and bellboys which will greet and assist you before you enter the hotel and before leaving the hotel premises especially if you need to get a metered taxi. 
For this year, this is our 4th stay in a row. Even the hotel staffs knows and greet us with a smile, "Welcome back to Hyatt Hotel sir-ma'm, its good to see you again here. "
 We looked forward into another enjoyable stay at the Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila soon :)
