We have been checking out several hotels in the metro. I would be remiss if I overlooked the newly opened Conrad Hotel.
I booked an overnight stay when they offered their introductory rates. Even then, it was not cheap, especially since it didn't include breakfast. (I didn't notice that when I booked it. Sad...) Tip: the rooms with a view of Manila Bay costs considerably more. You might want to skip this if you don't intend to stay in the room for long periods or if you don't mind the view. #pooritamoves
I pushed to stay here because it's managed by Hilton Hotels, a world renowned expert on weddings. (It's owned by SM though) We were trying to hit two birds with one stone: staycation and canvassing mission. So we were all set for a relaxing stay. We checked in late that afternoon due to the traffic. Sad again... But my spirits lifted when I saw the striking structure from afar. It looked like a ship about to set sail on Manila Bay.
I was surprised at the lobby initially; I didn't think it would be that simple (despite the lovely art fixture). Surprise, it isn't... Conrad is like Marco Polo with the main lobby on a higher floor. The main lobby was huge, very airy with few seats for those waiting. It was surrounded by floor to ceiling glass windows, giving guests an unobstructed view of the bay. The light fixture complemented the view. The bar/restaurants, pool, and ballrooms can all be found on this level.
We were escorted to our room, which was gorgeous. The room was done in shades of gray; it towed the line between masculine and delicate. It was spacious and everything you require for a comfortable stay is there. TV was really nice. Bathrobe, slippers, and complete toiletries. Fast wifi. The sheets were pristine and felt so good. They even have a pillow menu so you can choose the kind of pillow you prefer. I liked the ones already provided. Most striking of all was how modern everything was--the thermostat adjusts itself according to your body temperature as you enter the room, Bluetooth automatically detected on your phone, the windows adjust it's tint-- probably the smartest room I stayed at so far. Note: I wanted to bring the desk chair home with me. It just didn't fit in my bag...
We asked to speak with the event planners, but no one was available. (it was a Saturday) This was really surprising, but I figured this was because they only recently opened. Another employee was assigned to show us the ballrooms. However, she wasn't part of Events, thus she couldn't answer a lot of my questions. She was very nice though and gracious in spite of the initial surprise.
The main ballroom was elegant but being black and gray, it wasn't what I had in mind. I was a bit crestfallen, because I felt this would limit my color palette. #bridezillamuch Silver, gold, and red would go well with it, if you are so inclined but I have something different in mind. Plus, we were doubtful if one part of the ballroom could really accommodate the number of guests they said it would. It seemed like it was going to be a squeeze. I also found the corridor between two ballrooms cold and drab, more suited to conventions. But you do pass by the lobby and the beautifully designed pool as you enter, so I felt torn.
We spent the rest of the afternoon in another meeting before eating dinner at Chibo Okonomiyaki. We also checked out S Maison, which was still kind of bare at the time, but very promising. We then had dessert at the lobby cafe, where I had a Japanese cheesecake cupcake and their signature coffee. I don't remember what it was called; I do remember the P240 price tag. The cupcake was nice but nothing spectacular. The fiancé had this huge chocolate chip cookie (or was it raisin?) but I didn't try it anymore being so full. He seemed to like it though.
Turn down service!!! yey!
The next day, we enjoyed the infinity pool but only for a short time. There is a shallow wading pool for kids. Towels were provided at the area. Still sad about the lack of breakfast buffet, but reviews from Optha friends (who had their convention here) were not stellar. I had the longganisa meal from Jollibee instead!🤣 Oooh, btw take your time showering-- the jets were soooo relaxing. We checked out a little before noon and had lunch at MOA.
To the people who are planning to have an event here: I did not like their present policies. They target corporations more than personal affairs from the looks of things. I found the staff aloof and NOT accommodating, not qualities I look for in events people. I don't think I should be the one following up. Looks like I'll be a bridezilla, huh? Too bad, since the prices were very reasonable. But, I hate hassle and I prefer people who are very easy to talk to. I think they will eventually change their policies because I doubt you will find a bride who would be amenable to their current terms.
So I think Conrad would be an excellent choice for a staycation if you have a lot of disposable income or just want to try something new. Great location, lots of parking, stunning at night, relaxing pool, luxurious rooms, and polite staff in general. They also have a lot of interesting art pieces by local artists that would appeal to enthusiasts. Very near the church, though that's a bit simpler in terms of interiors (without A/C too). It would be a great place for wedding preps too, just imagine the aerial shots!

Disclaimer: My overnight stay was paid for by my company because of an event. But, I will review it as if I paid for it with my own money.
This is my first time to stay at Conrad Manila, which is under the Hilton Chain of hotels. My expectations were high because at almost 10k a night, it better be worth it.
Parking: It was confusing at first to find a parking slot near the elevator to the hotel. There are no clear signs. I initially ended up at the S Maison side. But, the guards were helpful so I got redirected to where the hotel elevators were located.
Checking-in: When the elevators opened at the 3rd level of the Central Lobby, I was wowed! I liked the view of the Manila Bay. (First Photo).
There was initially confusion on where to leave my bags because the rooms were still unavailable. We were told it was at the third floor but turns out it was at the first level. However, since the staff were cheery, I did not mind.
Other than the bag confusion, check-in was a breeze.
Room: My room faced the side of Microtel. It had partial views of the hotel, the bay, and a construction area. Not the best view, but, I'm not complaining.
The bed was Queen sized matrimonial style bed. Nice and firm enough for my sensitive back (I have a herniated disc that I got a year ago).
The toilet was separate from the shower, which is a good thing. However, the exhaust on the toilet needs work. The lingering scent of pee remained even after spraying it with my room spray that I have on hand. A demerit in my book.
Aromatherapy and Associates Toiletries- smells manly though. Just saying. The scent should be unisex.
Weighing scale- yay! I love hotels with weighing scales in the rooms. Helps me watch what I eat in case I don't use the gym facilities.
Flat screen tv.
And the best amenity: NESPRESSO MACHINE with 6 capsules!
There was a turn down service at night. But unlike other 5-star hotels, there was no Turn-down sweets that were usually given away.
Breakfast buffet: You have 3 restaurant choices- Brasserie on 3, China Blue, and Blu Coffee Bar.
I went to Brasserie on 3.
The choices were within my expectations: sausages, bacon, egg station, bread station, waffles and crepe station, dimsum section, Filipino dishes station, and cereal station.
The notable areas for me were the cereal station with greek yogurt and the noodles section. I could make my own yogurt bowl with the selection of muesli, flax and chia seeds, nuts and sunflower seeds, and assortment of dried fruits.
In the noodles section, I asked for laksa sans noodles with lots of mushrooms! Sarap! Just the right kick and creamy taste.
Overall, it was a nice experience. Would I still book here if I'm the one paying for it, likely.

The newest luxury destination in Manila is finally here that offers the best views of Manila Bay sunset.
Conrad Manila is located at the MOA complex in Pasay City. The hulking structure shaped like a cruise ship. It's definitely new luxury hotel to stay in when in Manila. It's the newest property under Conrad Hotel & Resort, an international brand of luxury hotel and resorts, owned and operated by Hilton Worldwide.
Went here 5 days ago to book a room for my mom Elaine P upcoming birthday. This is the perfect birthday treat for mom. A good mom deserves a good treat
All i can say is wow!
I'll give you the complete details on my next review for Conrad Manila. Can't wait for my next visit.
