Manila was the highlight of my 10 day, 4 country trip last month. Truly a gem of a city, with kind and generous people. The AG New World (AG is for Asian Gaming, since it is attached to a casino) was a delight and great respite from sprints around the city. Nicely located near the Bay, close to ferries and plenty of fun stores and business in the area.
I had an executive suite king - a huge room with great views of the harbor and part of the city. The exec. lounge was perfect for snacks, drinks and meals and the staff was more then helpful. I've been to a couple other New World properties, and this one is a not as modern and updated as them, but it was really a great experience.
Like many neighborhoods in Manila, the area around the hotel is colorful, and while some people might not feel safe walking around alone at night, I didn't have any issues that went passed "no thank you".
I was not interested in the attached casino, but it seemed like people were enjoying themselves there - but be warned, like all casinos, there is a lot of cigaret smoke.
Overall great experience, and will be back for sure.More
