Century Park Hotel Manila
Affordable Well-appointed Comfort
The kids were scheduled for interview
for their US
for visa renewal, and we
a needed hotel in close proximity
to the US
Embassy in Manila.
So we booked at the Century
for three days and two nights stay.
Century Park Hotel
Manila used to be known as
the Century Park
Sheraton Hotel Manila and one
of the Grand Old Dame
Hotels in the city.
It had a stunning and one of the most opulent
lobbies among the hotels in Metro Manila,
...had a friendly front desk staff and we
were able to check- in fast and easy,
...and we were in our room in a jiffy.
One Bedroom Corner Suite
Our room is right at
the rear end corner of
the building where the two corridors meet.
The Century Park Suite is one of the
most spacious suite rooms I have seen.
It had a large living room area with a complete sala set and
a huge comfortable sofa that could double as an extra bed.
It had huge flat screen LCD TV.
It also had a dining room,
with buffet table on the side,
…a small kitchen with minibar,
…with a huge refrigerator.
It also had its own toilet and washroom.
The living room had panoramic windows that
offer a stunning view of Roxas Boulevard,
…and of the Manila Bay,
The bedroom was very spacious,
…and had a huge king size bed
where the whole family could fit in.
It had luxurious pillow top mattress
lots of soft, fluffy pillows and duvet.
It also had a snugly, comfortable
lounge chair by the bedside.
…just like the living room, it also
has a 40” wide flat screen LCD TV,
…a spacious walk- in closet,
…and a very huge and
...with rather limited supplies of toiletries.
The bathroom had transparent glass
wall, making the bedroom visible
from the bathroom and vice versa.
For privacy it could manually
be closed by blinds.
It also had a well equipped working desk, provided
with all kinds and
all types of electrical outlets.
And just like the living room, there
was a panoramic window that offers
a sweeping view of Roxas Boulevard,
and the scenic Manila Bay.
Connectivity is not a problem as it has
a free fast Wi Fi
…and there were five land- line phones,
one in the living room working table,
…two in the bedroom; one by the bedside,
…and another on the working table,
…and one each
on the two toilets.
The hotel is located right
in front of Harrison
…so there is really a lot of places to visit and
very close to so many dining destinations.
We also chose this hotel as it
is very close to the US Embassy,
where the kids are scheduled for
interview for their visa renewal.
The huge panoramic windows offer the best and the worst of
Bay and Roxas Boulevard.The view could be depressing
at daytime as the guests would wake of at thedismal sight
of the thick early morning smog that envelopes the horizon.
The view gets better at noon time
when the smog clears up a little bit,
…and the priceless view of the famous
and spectacular Manila
Bay sunset takes
your breath away in the late afternoon .
At night, the Ferris Wheel lights coming
from the nearby Star City theme park,
…and even the play of lights from the
distant Mall of Asia are a sight to behold.
The Suite room costs a little over 6,000 pesos
per day so it’s still a great bargain for this
huge, spacious and comfortable suite room.
