Executive Lounge Benefits at Port Bar, Hilton Manila

New Normal Update, Executive Lounge Benefits

The Executive Lounge at Hilton Manila will remain closed while Metro Manila is under General Community Quarantine. In the meantime, Port Bar serves as the temporary executive lounge of the hotel.

Port Bar is located on the third floor, the same floor as the front desk. It is open daily from 11:00am to 8:00pm. Guests who booked an executive room or suite, as well as Hilton Honors Diamond members, enjoy the following benefits during their stay:

  • all-day refreshments (11:00am to 6:00pm)
  • nightly hors d'oeuvres (6:00pm to 8:00pm)
  • alcoholic beverages (6:00pm to 8:00pm)

Please note that breakfast is not served in the temporary executive lounge. Eligible lounge guests can claim their complimentary breakfast benefit at Kusina Sea Kitchens all-day dining restaurant. Read more ►

Safety Protocols

Physical distancing is strictly implemented here in accordance with the health and safety protocols imposed by the local government on hotels and restaurants. Tables are spaced at least two meters apart. Guests are also not allowed to seat next to each other. Face-to-face seating is also not allowed. It is highly discouraged to share a table with guests not staying in the same room as you.

Guests are required to wear their facemask and face shield when entering the lounge. Guests are only allowed to remove their facemask when eating or drinking. Hand sanitizing stations are also available inside the lounge. For your convenience, I recommend that you bring the hand sanitizer provided in your room.

All-day Refreshments

There is a self-service bar inside the temporary executive lounge. Here, guests can make their own espresso or coffee beverage. Dilmah tea bags are also available. There are canned sodas, bottled juice, and bottled water inside the bar fridge. For your safety, I recommend that you wipe the buttons of the coffee machine with alcohol wet wipes first before using it. Alcohol wipes are available in the sanitation kit provided in your room. You can also ask the lounge attendant for one.

Happy Hour

The Happy Hour runs from 6:00pm to 8:00pm daily. In compliance with local health and safety protocols, canapes won't be served buffet-style. This is to avoid cross-contamination among guests. Canapes are instead served a la minute.

Here is the canapes set served to me during my visit. The set includes single servings of roast duck, shumai (steamed pork dumpling), curry fish ball, char siu (Chinese barbecued pork), rice topped with slices of Chinese crispy pork belly, and Macao egg tart. You can order another round of the canapes set or you can just ask for your prefered items.

In addition to soft drinks and juices, canned beer and tonic water are also offered in the bar fridge. Liquor and basic cocktails are also available. During my visit, I ordered my favorite Manila Colada, the hotel's version of the classic Piña Colada. I also had ginger ale and Coke Zero.
