Edsa Shangri-La Manila » Tower Wing Horizon Executive Room

New Normal Room Feature

The Tower Wing Horizon Executive Room is one of the two Horizon Club Room categories of Edsa Shangri-La Manila. Located in the Tower Wing, this room has a quarter circle shape and measures 63 square meters. The Tower Wing Horizon Executive Room comes with Horizon Club Lounge access and benefits already.

Similar to the Tower Wing Premier Room, the Tower Wing Horizon Executive Room also features a spacious living space with panoramic views of the Ortigas Center cityscape. Here is the view from Room 1426 facing Lourdes School. For this stay, we booked the Flexible Rate as the room already comes with Horizon Club benefits.

Health & Safety Measures

We were provided with a Shangri-La Self Care Kit during our most recent stay at Edsa Shangri-La Manila. This is just one of the in-room safety standards and precautionary measures put in place by Edsa Shangri-La Manila in line with its Shangri-La Cares program:

  • Every guest is provided with a self-care kit consisting of a hand sanitizer, an all-purpose disinfectant spray, alcohol wet wipes, and a face mask.
  • Bottled drinks and snacks will no longer be available in the minibar. Guests can instead order soda as part of their complimentary Horizon Club benefits during their stay.
  • Room attendants will only clean the room in the absence of guests to minimize face-to-face contact.
  • Only registered guests are allowed to enter the rooms.

Room Features

The Tower Wing Horizon Executive Room is furnished with a king-size bed, a two-seater sofa, and a work desk with swivel chair. Furniture and fixtures are well-spaced making it very comfortable to move around. The entire curved side of the room is lined with glass window wall allowing plenty of natural light. 

I love how spacious the work area is and I do prefer the work chair facing the room instead of the wall. The complimentary wifi internet was fast enough to support voice and video conferencing via Microsoft Teams.

The TV is located near the bed which is convenient if you are channel surfing while lying down on the bed. When seated on the sofa, you won't have direct sight of the TV. If you prefer a room with a sofa that faces the TV, I recommend that you book the Tower Wing Premier Room instead.

As mentioned earlier, the minibar is kept empty in line with the hotel's enhanced health and safety protocols. As part of your Horizon Club benefits, you can actually request for soda or even chilled juices to be sent to your room, free of charge. Coffee/tea making facility is still provided in the room together with Zesta tea bags, instant coffee, and bottled water.

I was officially working from hotel during this stay, and fortunately, my request for an early check-in at 10:00am was granted. Since my work shift would start at 5:00pm, I had enough time to catch up on sleep. The airconditioning also worked perfectly to keep the in-room temperature within the comfortable range of 18°C-22°C even at noontime.

The wardrobe cabinets are located in the foyer. There are two cabinets to hang your clothes with enough space for a two-week stay. Bathrobes, bedroom slippers, iron and ironing board are also stored here.

The bathroom is also accessible from the foyer. It has a separate bathtub and walk-in shower. There is a single vanity basin with a spacious countertop for your personal toiletries. A complimentary vanity kit is also provided. The toilet is fitted with a bidet seat cover.

The walk-in shower is fitted with handheld and rainfall showerheads. It is also fitted with a marble-topped shower seat. Water pressure was consistently strong throughout our stay and hot water was available almost instantaneously.

Guests staying in a Tower Wing Horizon Executive Room are provided with Jasmine & Bergamote bath amenities from the La Collection de Grasse by L'Occitane en Provence. The complete set includes 50ml bottles of shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion, as well as two bars of perfumed soap.
