1) 1.5 hour is doable but you might get "stressed" or jammed up

2) 4 hours is a long time in Terminal 1 which in my opinion is a piece of crap, yes you will have a lounge access but even that lounge is crappy.

3) Marriott is nice hotel and depending who "we" are or what your plans or duties are in MNL you could enjoy a half way decent night in MNL (don't laugh to hard about spending a half way decent night in MNL comment please).

You an easily also head to Dusit or other Makati hotels if you are overnighting and do other items depending on what your goals are and / or who "we" are including etc...
