Of sunsets and sky lounges
By Earl D.C. Bracamonte

Traders Hotel Manila (THM), the Shangri-La Group-managed hotel in the bay area now offers a unique experience with the opening of its new Club Lounge in the sky, located smack right on Roxas Boulevard's sunset strip. The hotel brand is also delighted to announce the completion of its new Club guestrooms and suites that are strategically perched on the topmost floors of the hotel. Designed in contemporary style and functionality, they provide business and leisure travelers with all the modern comforts and amenities expected of a 4-star international deluxe hotel.
“The hotel's best-kept secret is our view of Manila Bay. It's something you pay for with big bucks anywhere abroad. We have a quality product with lots of potential; making us a contributing player in the bay area. We are the only international 4-star hotel in the Manila shorefront, offering competitive advantages to boot. And topping it all is the top-notch Filipino hospitality that's recognized as premier hospitality globally,” enthused THM's new general manager Gordon Aeria, during an exclusive colloquy.
The Traders Club rooms and suites have undergone major renovations and redesign to showcase a relaxed, stylish interior with warm tones and comfortable furnishings. All of its 36-square-meter rooms and 72-square-meter suites come equipped with every modern traveler’s necessities that includes a king-size bed, spacious desk area with 24/7 Wi-Fi & broadband connection, as well as an iLap/iPod dock and Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) enabling guests to access their billing, order in-room dining, watch the latest movies in high-definition, and many more related E-concerns.
“We've increased our band-width to 10 megabytes, making us the fastest in the bay area. Not everybody can stay in a 5-star hotel. But here, you get five-star amenities without creating a dent in your pocket. A smile on our guests' faces gives me a lot of satisfaction,” intoned the Singapore-born Aussie national.
Traders Hotel Manila has a total of 303 spacious guestrooms and suites that provide guests with the essentials of a quality hotel room: a chic and functional boudoir, a comfortable bed and spanking clean bathrooms; all make a wonderful home away from home. The hotel’s advantageous location, which is about 20 minutes away from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport; and a short drive away from the Makati business district, offers guests a competitive advantage as it allows business travelers to move around the city with ease to meet the daily rigors of their hectic itineraries. It is also an ideal jump-off point for leisure travelers who plan on going to island resorts before or after a short visit in the city. The hotel is also within close proximity to the metro’s premier convention and exhibition centers such as the Philippine International Convention Center, the World Trade Center, the SMX Exhibition Hall as well as a couple of international embassies. Also, 5 minutes from Traders Hotel is the biggest shopping mall in Asia – the SM Mall of Asia. And for a taste of the country’s rich art & culture, just across the hotel is the famed Cultural Center of the Philippines.
GM Aeria offers his warmest welcome to visitors of Manila, “We look forward to delighting our guests from here and abroad, providing each and everyone a nice home away from home.”
