InterContinental Manila to close doors after 46 Years

I have had so many good memories at InterContinental Manila Hotel ever since I joined InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) last 2009. And now, this hotel which is one of the first 5-star hotels in the country, will be "closing soon". The hotel management contract ends on December 31, 2015.

The closure of the 46-year-old hotel, designed by National Artist Leandro Locsin, was announced as Ayala Land Incorporated (ALI) unveiled its plans Friday, October 9, for a new commercial, mixed-use development. 
The hotel is regarded as the longest operating international chain hotel in the Philippines, which opened on April 11, 1969, also as part of the overall redevelopment plan for Makati City.

It also holds the distinction of being the first 5-star, deluxe hotel in the city and the second InterContinental hotel to open in the region. In 2006, it updated its 332 guest rooms and suites, incorporating traditional and modern Filipino design.

I am glad that I have experienced to stay in an Ambassador way in this hotel with friends using our employee rate before. We will never forget you InterContinental Hotel Manila. 
Salamat, MNLHA... Saludo kami sa 'yo! 
(Thank you MNLHA.. We Salute You!) 

Your excellent service will be forever cherished.
