Opening of Hilton Manila heralds entry of flagship brand into the Philippines

The sophisticated oasis of the new Hilton Manila is strategically situated near the airport and within the city’s lifestyle and entertainment hub

MANILA, Philippines and MCLEAN, Va. — Hilton today announces the opening of Hilton Manila within Resorts World Manila, the Philippines’ first integrated entertainment and tourism resort, which is located just across the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3. The opening marks the Hilton brand’s entry into the Philippines market and is the latest addition to the Hilton portfolio.

“The opening of Hilton Manila marks a strategic milestone for Hilton as we celebrate the entry into a key market within South East Asia,” said Paul Hutton, vice president, operations, South East Asia, Hilton. “It speaks to the growth opportunities we see in the Philippines, and we are entering the city at a great time when we’re witnessing some of the strongest tourism growth, with an all-time high of foreign visitors into the Philippines in the first half of 2018. We look forward to enhancing the guest experience and playing an integral role in defining the hospitality landscape here in the Philippines.”

“Manila is a vibrant, dynamic city that, in recent years, has grown to become one of the leading destinations for travelers in the South East Asian region,” said Vera Manoukian, senior vice president and global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. “With the debut of our Hilton Hotels & Resorts portfolio in Manila, we are uniquely positioned to provide the foundation for memorable and sustainable travel experiences for guests visiting this city. Whether they’re there for business or leisure, we continue to provide guests from the Philippines and around the world with opportunities to experience the exceptional service expected from Hilton hotels.”

Hilton Manila is highly accessible from Ninoy Aquino International Airport, with direct connections to Terminal 3 via the “Runway Manila” skybridge. Nestled within the city’s most diversified integrated resort, Hilton Manila is close to key business districts and convention centers as well as museums and attractions such as the Philippine Air Force Aerospace Museum, Villamor Airbase Golf Course, Newport Performing Arts Theatre and Newport Mall. Hilton Manila is also easily connected to the popular Manila Bayside leisure and tourist hub, via the NAIA Expressway and the Makati business center by the Metro Manila Skyway — making it an ideal choice for business and leisure travelers alike.

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.

“The opening of Hilton Manila celebrates our commitment to being the most hospitable company in the world, combining renowned Hilton hospitality with the genuine warmth of Filipino service,” said Simon McGrath, general manager, Hilton Manila. “Located minutes from the airport and within Manila’s lifestyle and entertainment hub, business guests and leisure travelers will be able to capitalize on Hilton Manila as a versatile venue for conferences, meetings and social gatherings, as well as an ideal location for staycation getaways.”

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.
