CHICAGO (January 23, 2018) – Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) announced today the opening of Grand Hyatt Manila, the first Grand Hyatt hotel in the Philippines. The 461-room luxury hotel tops the tallest skyscraper in the Philippines at 1,043 feet, offering breathtaking and unobstructed panoramic views of the Makati skyline and Manila Bay.

Grand Hyatt Manila is expected to be the destination for impressive views and unforgettable dining experiences.
“Taguig City is known as the home of the passionate minds, and is the perfect location for the Grand Hyatt brand as it continues to flourish with business and leisure travelers in the heart of cosmopolitan Manila,” said Gottfried Bogensperger, area vice-president and general manager of Grand Hyatt Manila. “At Grand Hyatt Manila, we’ll provide guests a stay beyond the ordinary, a grand experience. From our gracious Filipino hospitality, to panoramic views of Manila Bay and local culinary fare – we promise our guests will be able to celebrate iconic Manila.”
