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.
