Hilton’s Flagship Brand Returns to Manila

Between the ’60s and the ’80s, the name Manila Hilton was close-knit with high society. Three decades since the Hilton Worldwide’s flagship brand left the Philippine capital, it returns to the city within the integrated resort complex Resorts World Manila.

Hilton Manila offers 357 modern and elegant guest rooms furnished with Hilton’s signature features and technology, including the famed Serenity bed; a four-point bathroom comprising a vanity area, toilet, and separate bathtub and rain shower; and the innovative Digital Key “direct-to-room” technology, which allows guests to use their smartphone or tablet as their room key for seamless access — a feature exclusively available for Hilton Honors members.

Besides stylish accommodations, Hilton Manila guests can enjoy unparalleled dining options, exceptional amenities and premier MICE facilities.

It’s a culinary journey at Hilton Manila with innovative dining offerings at its three restaurants and two bars. Executive chef Dennis Leslie, who has more than 20 years of F&B experience, will bring new and exciting flavors and cuisines to the Philippine dining scene, creating a food and beverage experience that focuses on healthy, nutritious menus utilizing ingredients that are locally sourced, sustainable and organic where possible. The property’s dining outlets include:

  • Madison Lounge & Bar, located at the lobby entrance and reminiscent of New York City’s dining scene. It offers artisanal coffee and a sumptuous grab-and-go selection available during the day and exquisite cocktails, premium wines and bar bites in the evening.
  • Hua Ting, located on the second floor, introduces modern Shanghainese cuisine, using traditional recipes and locally sourced ingredients, in a casual yet upscale setting.
  • Kusina, an all-day dining restaurant that serves Filipino cuisine with a focus on fresh seafood cooked “dampa-style”, classic Filipino recipes with a twist, as well as international staples at its interactive buffet stations.
  • Port Bar, the perfect place to relish pre- or post-dinner drinks, brings in the finest range of craft beers, premium whiskies, cognacs and dark rums from around the world. The bartenders are also known for whipping up creative takes on classic cocktails.
  • Freestyle Pool Bar, where guests can enjoy a light bite and expertly concocted cocktails by the poolside.

Guests seeking exercise or relaxation can take a dip at the hotel’s expansive free-form resort-style lagoon pool, relax poolside on sun-loungers or at the swim-up bar, or work up a sweat at the 24-hour fitness center with the latest fitness equipment and free weights. There are also wet and dry play areas for children to enjoy.

All venues feature natural daylight and are fully equipped with the latest audiovisual innovations such as smart LED televisions, tech-ready connections for laptops and other video sources, high-definition video conferencing suites and wireless internet.
