The first stop of our My Manila Hotel Tour is the very elegant Manila Hotel Champagne Room. It is one of the two bullet-proof halls in the hotel; the other one being the Roma Salon. It actually wasn’t bullet-proof before. However, with the coup attempts, the hall was made bullet-proof to protect the guests, most of which were heads of states and high officials.

Upon entering the hall, the first thing that caught my eye was the ceiling for it was decorated with French-style chandeliers and glass palm trees. If I knew such a hall existed in the hotel, it would have been one of our top choices for our Paris-themed wedding!

It has long tables and chairs with dainty floral upholstery. Lined in the middle of the tables are tall vases filled with flowers and candles atop silver holders. It is very French provincial – and I love it! This, my friends, is my dining area peg. *sticks photo on inspiration board* Ehem, Daddy A!

On the walls are paintings and huge mirrors with golden linings. Everything is just so grand. If I were to dine here, I would truly feel like royalty!

Also surrounding the room are marble side tables with porcelain lamps and figurines. You know, the ones with women dressed in big, fancy gowns and men with long-tail coats.

If you are wondering, the Manila Hotel Champagne Room can be a venue for various events – meetings, engagement parties, and weddings to name a few. It can accommodate up to 150 persons.

This is part 1 of my five-part series on the My Manila Hotel Tour. Read my other posts about the tour here.

  1. How did you book the My Manila Hotel Tour? I am interested to see the grandeur of the hotel as well. =)

    1. We were invited, but I believe you can give them a call and ask them for their next My Manila Hotel Tour schedule. :)

  2. Erika says…
    Oh wow. Everything looks so grand! Would you happen to know the rates kaya? :)

    1. I think the rate depends on the menu you choose. If you’re interested, you can give them a call to schedule a meeting. :)

  3. Super nice photos, Kim! I love your shots of the Champagne room!

  4. The Champagne Room gives me the deja vu feeling! It’s like going back in time!

    1. It does, doesn’t it? And knowing that big names from way back in the early 1900s “hung out” in that same room made the experience even more wonderful.

  5. Oh wow! It’s like walking into the Romantic era or something. :) How elegant. (It’s the first time I’ve called something elegant in a looooong time)

  6. This place is grand! I would like to place the big round mirror to my living room. Liked it!

  7. I’ve only been to Manila Hotel once and it was during my cousin’s debut eons ago! Haha! I’d love for a chance to tour this hotel too.

  8. I want to tour Manila Hotel, too! It’s one of the hotels in Manila that I’m really interested in but never really got to take a look at. I’ve only been there once – for an event and breakfast, and my experience wasn’t super great, but I really wanna give it another chance. The Champagne Room is so pretty!!!
