When we approached the Reception staff they were quite standoffish to us. As my booking was done thru Expedia they even asked for a proof of our booking, Other hotels we stayed did not hassle us - they only required our passports or I.D.s and keys were readily handed to us. Not much hiccups compared to Manila Hotel's staff.
Excellent stay and good for romantic getaway. Nice finger lickin' food that goes with your fave drinks. My kid love to stay longer with pool and kids club. Weekend cultural show is an attractions that's depends on the weather. Friendly and attractive customer relations ladies are my son's girlfriends. He's only 5 years old.
Fairmont Makati is an excellent hotel, located in the heart of the Makati City shopping district. Once you walk out the door of the hotel, there is shopping in every direction. There's an endless number of restaurants and clubs, ranging from the inexpensive to the extravagant. The hotel kitchen does a great job of providing many delicious meals, local and foreign. The staff is top-notch. When I decided I needed a larger room, the staff made the move effortless for me and my guest. All we did was walk to the other room. The staff took care of everything else. The rooms are beautifully appointed with comfortable furniture and all the electrical hook ups/outlets needed in this world of internet connectivity. The hotel is spotless! One of the cleanest I've stayed in. The hotel is also very quiet. I never heard any disturbing noise from outside construction or neighboring hotel guests. I complained that the hot water in the shower didn't stay hot long enough. I didn't run out of hot water again during the rest of my stay. The entire staff is awesome! This was my second stay at the Fairmont Makati. I love this hotel.

This hotel is opposite the boardwalk on Roxas Bvd about 1km from the main Ermita shops. I don't think it is in the general "touristy" areas and would not have stayed in Ermita/Malate had I not had business to do there. I felt safe within the hotel and the staff certainly knew how to look after me. Even with the wild weather that occurred while I was there (Typhoon Luis and Tropical Storm Mario), they made sure that all was okay with me.
Although during my stay there was a number of building works nearby (and especially next door), I did not hear or feel any disruptions. The only downside to my whole stay was when part of the building next door was being demolished and they knocked out the entire telecommunications for the G Hotel. That meant there was no phone lines into or out of the hotel nor wifi. This was by NO means any fault of the hotel and the staff were exceptional in their helpfulness when I needed outside lines to make critical phone calls (one staff member even allowed me to use their own personal mobile phone to make the calls).
Overall, although I didn't go out at night, the G Hotel is close enough to restaurants and clubs for people to enjoy the nightlife in Ermita/Malate. The Manila Zoo is just a walk away (even though I didn't have the opportunity to go) and a quick taxi ride will take you anywhere you need if you choose not to walk. The hotel facilities were great and the staff couldn't be more helpful or friendly.
