Ever since its inception in 1938, the Admiral Hotel stands dignified and holds its position right next to what was once an airstrip during the Japanese – American occupation of Manila.
Recently revamped in 2020, the iconic building straddles between the fortified Spanish colonial city of Intramuros and the bustling business district of contemporary Manila.
The eclectic, culturally-diverse neighborhood of Malate offers a wide range of activities such as theatre and orchestral performances at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, music shows, museum tours, afternoon strolls along the Bay Walk, an animal zoo as well as historical highlights which can be reached on foot. The hotel faces Manila bay, an ideal spot for enjoying late afternoon sunset or afterwork down time and it’s a short 20-minute hop from the main international airport.
CHARACTER & STYLE
The minute one steps inside the hotel, it’s inevitable not to feel or perhaps even transported to the halcyon days of 1940’s Manila whilst paying homage to the country’s beguiling origin.
An art installation dubbed as Las Paginas de la Historia takes the beholder to a spectacular display of levitating book pages and over to a large overhead ceiling portraying a potpourri of the vibrantly rich Filipino culture.
Traditional white balustrades or barandillas cascade in repetitive fashion and set against the whimsy arrangement of Machuca tiles on the lobby floor and the rest are tastefully furnished with Art Deco fittings. The restrained elegance feels homely and intimate at the same time inviting both the imagination and soul to an old world glam retreat.
Not many hotel rooms can tell a story. Only a few and clearly The Admiral Hotel knows how to do just that. Each of the 123 guestrooms (six executive suites and a Presidential), spread amongst six themed floors, convey a sensory narrative – dark wooden panels contrasts with golden chromed outlines, marble walls to plush designed carpets on parquet floors, carefully selected details and the recurring Filipino theme as object d’art.
Every room is equipped with a large flat screen television, Bose soundbars, espresso machine, TWG tea sets, a mini bar and other tokens of modern comfort.
To imbue the guest with a sense of calm and relaxation, each room – a private personal space of comfort offers a pillow menu of varying softness, a snug pair of bathrobes, a selection of premium bath amenities (Appelles/Cinq Mondes), black out curtains with coziness very much in mind.
The bed with its firm comfortable mattresses is topped with high thread-count white linens ensuring a restful afternoon cat nap and a goodnight slumber.
