Hotel hopping in the metro

Sharing this column with one of our friends from the media, Mr. Bob Zozobrado who writes for the Manila Standard. He featured two of The Manila Hotel’s restaurants/outlets: Cafe Ilang-Ilang and The Champagne Room in his column called Mercury Rising.

“At the hotel’s famous Café Ilang-Ilang, they had an extensive collection of buffet delights. As they were expecting an overflow crowd, they offered two dinner seatings, first from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and the other from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.”

“I also checked on the Champagne Room because that’s my favorite venue in the hotel. This fine-dining restaurant’s romantic design and décor are always something to marvel at. On the menu was a sophisticated culinary landscape of delectable European fare. I was almost tempted to sit down and partake of the P6000-menu but my brother preferred the buffet at the other restaurant.”

“The hotel also has an ongoing super-discounted promo rate for a de luxe room for only P10,000 nett, including a breakfast buffet for two and a dinner buffet for two. On our way out of the hotel, I saw, at the lobby, a crowd lapping up the hotel’s well-loved pralines and chocolate hearts which are perfect gifts for friends, family, or loved ones.”
