Awesome Staycation
Clean Room, Spiral has exceeded my expectation when it comes to food choices
All in all it was good, there are some mishaps with their service and staff performance but I can still recommend Sofitel to people who are planning to visit Manila.

Had a lot of fun swimming
great swimming pool, nice interior, friendly staff
Take note that I made the reservation for my mother, and this is her review: We had a great time swimming in Sofitel's large pool -- they seriously have one of the best hotel pools in the Philippines. I go back again and again just because of the pool. The staff were friendly, and we generally had a pleasant stay. However, I wasn't pleased that we were given only one complementary toothbrush and that the shower stall reeked of urine when we checked in. One thing to keep in mind when visiting this hotel: It's far removed from the heart of the city, and taxis are the only mode of transportation you'll have if you don't have a car. If you ask the staff to call you a taxi, they'll have you rent one of the hotel's, and it's EXPENSIVE. We paid 300php for a 5 minute ride to MOA during our stay last year. What they don't tell you is that you can ask them to call you a regular cab so you won't have to pay as much.

I loved being pampered
Staff, decor, casino
The Sofitel is the lap of luxury. Even though the monsoon was blowing outside, indoors at Sofitel was still lively and filled the hours. LeBar is a great place for a good meal with extremely attentive service. So impressed was I on the first night that I returned two more nights in a row. Waiter Pavino was superb.

Nice hotel, big, and good for business meetings
The proactive staff, the pretty decor, the dining options
I stayed at the lounge level and all the staff were attentive and proactive. The whole team was fast, bright, and addressed me by name. I hosted some guests at the downstairs Le Bar and the staff was very helpful in sorting out a reservation for me. It's a shame my schedule meant I couldn't utilize all the facilities and amenities here, but my experience was really good so I imagine that the next time I'm in town I'll stay at the Sofitel again.

A worthwhile stay
Restaurant (Spiral), Comfortable room, clean
Overall, it was a good experience. The room was clean and well-maintained. Our room veranda's view is the Manila Bay which was really nice. There is wifi in the lobby, but you have to pay for wifi in the room. The pool is not as big, but is clean. Hotel staff are friendly and polite. Spiral restaurant is superb. I just wished there are lobby seats in the entrance of the hotel, as you would see many people standing waiting for Spiral to open, or waiting for their turn to check-in/out. However, I am very pleased with my stay in the hotel.

a bit disappointed for a luxury hotel. the curtains are stained and look old. staff a bit frazzled and weary-looking. stayed in a club room which was smaller than expected.
