There are days that we just want to rest and have a staycation without going out of town. Of recent, we opted to stay in Manila. We were looking to catch some old charm and found ourselves in a 4-star hotel in Pasay our ‘titos’ and ‘titas’ (uncle and aunts) are familiar with – The Heritage Hotel Manila.
The Heritage Hotel Manila
A few months ago, we had a lovely lunch at the Riviera Restaurant in the Heritage Hotel.
We loved their Filipino cuisine selections from the main dishes down to the Pinoy desserts. Check out our prior review of the Riviera Restaurant here.
Since then, we wanted to try and stay in the hotel to experience the ‘Heritage Hotel way of hospitality’.
The hotel has been around since the 1980’s and is still standing strong amidst competition in the urban hotel and hospitality scene.
The Heritage Hotel Manila boasts of 450 rooms featuring abstract artworks by renowned visual artist Nestor Olarte Vinluan. The hotel also offers 12 versatile function rooms from meetings to grand wedding banquet celebrations.
Staycation at the Heritage Hotel Club Room
It was our first time at the Heritage Hotel and staying in a club room just made it extra special.
From the lobby, a hotel staff assisted us to the club lounge located at the 10th floor for our check-in routine. There, we were welcomed with a serving of cold fruit juices.
Our room presented a king-sized bed, a sofa, and a working desk where we were able to catch-up with some work.
The coffee and tea facility also came in handy when we were not at the club lounge. There were complementary bottled water as well.
Amenities and Facilities
Later in the afternoon, we took a dip at the hotel’s outdoor pool followed by a visit to their wellness center to use the dry sauna and Jacuzzi.
We ended the day with a soothing Swedish massage at Paradasia Royale Spa, an in-the-hotel spa center. You may also request the massage to be served in the room as an option.
But we suggest for you to have it in their center as it is cozy, clean, and have suitable massage beds. We had ours in the couple’s room, perfect for ‘Seats For Two‘. 🙂
The Heritage Hotel Club Lounge
We spent a lot of time at the Club Lounge having coffee and juices while watching a movie or chatting with a couple friend who happened to be vacationing at the same time.
The Club Lounge serves breakfast and afternoon snacks exclusively for club room guests at 6am and 3pm, respectively.
Moist and yummy cakes and pastries, sandwiches, juices and brewed coffee abound. There are pasta dishes and a variety of fruits as well while guests can enjoy wine and beer in the evening.
For the complimentary breakfast, club members have the option to have theirs served from Riviera Restaurant to the Club Lounge upstairs.
We tried having it at the Club Lounge on the first day with an intercontinental breakfast buffet but also tried having it downstairs at the Riviera Restaurant itself. Both have their advantages where the former for convenience while the latter, if you want to have more food and wider choices. We say it depends on your appetite. 🙂
Later in the day, we also went to visit the nearby National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help , otherwise more known as the Baclaran Church.
It’s just a 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel. We’re not Catholics so Mrs. Seats For Two’s objective was revealed as she went shopping in Baclaran for affordable blouses.

Overall., there are many reasons why we would recommend the The Heritage Hotel Manila on your next trip.
The primary reason being that the hotel is near the international and domestic airports of Metro Manila which are suitable for tourists.
You can also visit a number of nearby tourists spots and business centers such as the Manila Bay (and its yacht clubs), the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), World Trade Convention Center (WTC), and SM Mall of Asia – one of the world’s largest shopping mall.
It’s also close to major transportation hubs such as the Metro Rail Transport (MRT), LRT, and bus terminals.
