The Holiday Inn Galleria Manila, stands tall in the bustling commercial and leisure area of the Ortigas Center in Pasig City. The hotel is located 15 kilometers from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
It is conveniently connected to Robinson’s Galleria Mall, one of Manila's most modern shopping complexes in the Philippines with its movies, every kind of restaurant you can imagine, great shopping, gym, billiards, bowling center and amusement area for kids. So there is no problem if you do not want to spend all your money in the Holiday Inn Galleria, you can spend it in the Robinson’s Galleria Mall instead!
Holiday Inn Galleria’s 284 guest rooms include tastefully appointed Studio, Executive, and Penthouse Suites.
The pride of the hotel is the penthouse suite which is on two levels and a bit out of most peoples budgets, mine included. The main level has two bedrooms, two full baths, living room, dining room (8 place settings), and a large bar area with mini refrigerator. There’s a spiral staircase, which leads to the marble tiled upper level which contains a bathroom, table and chairs and a huge hot tub on a built-up platform surrounded by windows with a great view of the city.
Not to be outdone, but the master bedroom has a very spacious dressing area with more closet and dresser space than most hotels. There is also another bath with separate shower and Jacuzzi. You could really throw a great party in this penthouse suite, which I'm sure there have been, it is more like a home than a hotel.
