The location of the hotel is great and I though my Club Intercontinental room was nice although the old style TV are pretty out of place in an IC these days.
I was very disappointed by the Club lounge however. It the feel of a place that has just gone through some major cost cutting. The food at cocktail hour and afternoon was OK but there was not really enough for the number of guests.
I was also very surprised that champagne is no longer served. The service was pretty offhand as well.
I stayed in a club room at the LM KL the week before, and it was far better than the IC Manila. This was a surprise for me as I think of the IC as being a cut above LM or Sheraton.

I think you must have caught them on an off week camsean, I just returned from a week at the IC Manila and everything was excellent as usual. You'll be glad to know the champagne is back, and as well as serving hot dishes from 6-8pm, they now serve cold canapes as well!
Breakfast was, as always, superb, with delicious eggs benedict

Found an official taxi that took all 5 of us with all our luggage for P330. Arrived on a very quiet Christmas Eve- we had booked a Club room & got a room only upgrade for the kids to the Club Floor. Kids room was a free night redemption, ours was a special Asia rate - really good price.
Christmas Eve dinner a la carte at 10:30 PM was nothing special. Quite disappointed actually- glad we did not do the Christmas Buffet with that quality of food.
Club room was old but spacious, seriously looking its age, very old clunky TV. Did not bother to call for additional toiletries that was lacking. Had comp wifi, fruit, water & welcome letter in room.
Christmas Day breakfast at the Club Lounge was a whole lot better than dinner. Had made to order Bibingka delivered from the coffee shop & mangoes from the kitchen as well. Server was very attentive.
Asia sale prices were the clincher plus the free night redemption - can't beat that deal.
