10 Pretty Hotels in Metro Manila Where You Should Totally Spend Your Holiday Staycation At
The holidays are here! And because it’s the season to be jolly, it’s the season of overbooked restaurants, bars, and resorts as well.
If you want to skip the lines this year and are eager to spend the holidays with your family, friends, or loved ones not in your home, here are X super cute hotels just in the city where you can spend a fabulous and stress-free holiday staycation at.
Probably one of my personal favorite city hotels, The Henry Hotel Manila will take you out of Manila and into slumberland even if it’s literally situated in the middle of the hustle and bustle of F.B. Harrison.
They have 4 kinds of rooms/suites you can choose from and all are nothing short of amazing. This cute, vintage boutique hotel makes you feel like you’ve stepped into a movie set - the whole place doesn’t have that usual high-rise hotel vibe and you don’t even have to travel far from the city.

If you’re feeling a bit luxe and want to not be too far from the city action, our next selections are for you. The Shangri-la hotel in Makati is known for being soshal. And if you’re eyeing for those Instagram pics ala ABS-CBN Ball vibes, stay here! They have gorgeous rooms where you can rest and relax plus they have REALLY GOOD FOOD.
They have beautiful rooms and gorgeous suites you might want to stay and live the luxurious life at for the holidays. It’s like spending Christmas in our local New York or something like that.

There’s a lot of us who take staycations even when you still have to do a ton of work. Take your loved ones on an R&R in the middle of the city and stay at Marco Polo Hotel in Ortigas. This hotel is known for hosting several events but wait until you see their beautiful, spacious rooms!
If you thought that you can’t enjoy a nice view of Manila in a pool in Ortigas, you thought wrong. Marco Polo has an indoor pool fronted by massive clear glasses that will give you that major luxurious vibe.

Classic, clean, and new, the Rizal Park Hotel could just possibly be every staycation dream come true. Their rooms have soft muted colors of browns, yellows, and teal that is totally giving out vibes.
There’s a luxurious foyer (that kinda looks like Kris Jenner’s foyer actually) and an overall vintage-y aesthetic. You can definitely feel the European influence on the Philippines here. It’s like you’re not even in Manila anymore.
Luxury hotels have been sprouting in the heart of Manila so you can enjoy the good life in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. AG New World Manila Bay has rooms that gives you the best view of the popular Manila Bay sunset.

7. I’M Hotel
Going back to the heart of Makati, we have I’M Hotel. This is the pick if you just want to staycate with friends. It has a super cool pool and bars that you’d totally enjoy! Plus the rooms are up high so you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Makati Skyline at night.
More than the cute rooms is their spa which has been quite famous for a while now. They have onsens inspired by the Japanese onsens where you can just relax and feel renewed.
If there’s anything I love more than anything about Discovery Primea, it’s the privacy of their hotel. No wonder a lot of confidential meetings happen here. Same goes personally with my staycations. You can be sure that you and your loved ones can truly relax here without any distractions. But if you want to head to the mall, there’s Glorietta and Greenbelt nearby!
They also have a packed bar so no need to worry about your celebrations. Their facilities have it set for you. This hotel also has a rooftop pool you can enjoy!
What was formerly Crown Towers Manila is now Nüwa. You can easily spot it glimmering beside Nobu when you drive along Roxas Boulevard or Macapagal Ave. Let me tell you something about this hotel - they probably have the biggest selections of room varieties in Metro Manila (don’t @ me). They have rooms, suites, and villas that are nothing short of gorgeous.
10. Vivere Hotel
Chill out in the southside of the Metro and stay at Vivere Hotel. It’s a cute hotel with a vintage vibe situated just a bit shy of the middle of the not-as-busy Alabang business area. They are most famous for their rooftop restaurant - The Nest - which gives you a 360-degree view of the Alabang skyline.
