CS and I are certified home buddies. Aside from the occasional movie and dinner dates, we'd rather stay home and watch food or travel shows. Of course, traveling is a totally different circumstance where we are always out to explore. But when we're in town, a change in scenery would mean booking a nice hotel and staying within the vicinity as much as possible. And what's the next best thing from having a comfy bed, full blast air-conditioning and a soaking tub? The proximity of an executive lounge with unlimited food, drinks and desserts all day long.
Hyatt Hotel boasts a club lounge aside from several dining options within the hotel and in the City of Dream's entertainment complex. Among the hotels near the airport area, Hyatt is a top choice among business travelers mainly because of its exclusive club lounge features.
Ambiance and Amenities.
Modern, comfortable and cozy, Hyatt Manila's Club Lounge located on Level 7 of Tower II offers great view of the city and partial view of Manila Bay. The lounge is open everyday from 0600H to 2000H for guests staying at any of the 45 club rooms.
Variety and Abundance of Snack Choices.
Guests can enjoy a variety of light snacks all day and canapés from 1800H to 2000H. For guests who love Japanese food as much as we do, an abundance of sushi is always a great idea. Instead of displaying everything on the table, majority of the food such as sushi, cakes, desserts, cold cuts and salads are kept in the refrigerator to maintain its freshness and high quality.
Evening cocktails offer filling snacks that include your choice of laksa or chicken noodles. Both may not the best tasting meals but nothing that cannot be remedied by salt and/or pepper.
Unlimited alcoholic & non-alcoholic beverages.
Fresh fruit juices, soda and imported non-alcoholic drinks are available all day long. Also, top range wines and spirits are offered unlimited to guests between 1800H to 2000H.
- Afternoon tea - 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
- Evening cocktails - 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
- Breakfast - 6:00AM to 10:00 AM
Full Breakfast Buffet.
I love the Club Lounge's selection for its breakfast menu. It may not be as varied as other buffet breakfast in the area but since everything that I like is available, I am happy with lesser options.
I love walnuts in my bread, yogurt, waffle, salad, chocolate, cakes and in just about anything!
Everything that we tried were great except for the burnt bacon strips. I may like them crispy but never this dry and bitter. From what I've heard from the open kitchen, they let a trainee do the job and the chef failed to check up on the orders before the staff delivered it to us.
Other Perks & Services Offered.
Checking out on a Sunday usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes depending on the hotel occupancy and how efficient the front desk staff are, but if you're staying in a club room, there are hotels that offer express check out as long as a credit card is used to pay for incidentals. With Hyatt Hotel, guests are still required to proceed to the club lounge for proper check out but instead of waiting in line, you can grab some snacks and order drinks so you'll never feel like waiting at all.
It may be hotel standard or you may call it luck but I have never met a staff that were not very eager to serve (without being annoying) during our stay at Hyatt Manila. What's even more impressive is you can feel their sincerity and genuine hospitality that is becoming rare nowadays. Highly recommended and definitely worth your time and money.
