The 50-room Herald Suites Polaris stands out in a neighborhood that’s right in the heart of Makati’s most exciting destination: Barangay Poblacion.

This earliest settlement of Makati was just recently classified as a heritage district. It’s become a destination of colorful and vibrant conversions and a gentrified urban neighborhood where entertainment, fashion, food and art all come together.

Tucked away in side streets in old residential plots are small specialty cafes, bars, bed and breakfasts, galleries and a profusion of restaurants featuring global cuisines ranging from Mediterranean to Latin American. It also straddles the colorful and racy Burgos St. with its storied girlie bars.

Being an old district, many more adaptive reuse projects are sprouting up adding to its colorful millennial vibe. 


Herald Suites Polaris is all about a design driven stay in a unique and trendsetting neighborhood like Poblacion. Characterized by atmosphere and a distinct style in both its brand of service and accommodations, it offers an experience of hostelry not found in bigger hotel chains.


The architecture and interior design of the hotel is as unique as its operations, but always it has its own distinct style often combining a personal story and cultural aspects with a unique allure. Beyond its main doors one enters a different time and era altogether.

Recently, STAIL.ph the newest high fashion and lifestyle digital magazine in the Philippines and the newest brand of the international publishing house Indochine Media Group, partnered with Herald Suites Polaris for a maiden issue cover featuring Jasmine Curtis in a Great Gatsby themed feature.

Shot by Shaira Luna, it was set against the backdrop of elegant simplicity and refined luxury characteristic of Art Deco design and highlighted the grillwork of the scenic elevator landing.

Floor tiles in vivid geometric designs further brought the Art Deco/ Gatsby motif to life. Bespoke touches in small details balanced with contemporary touches in the rooms, common areas and its façade, gave the shot the total atmosphere of that era.

Today, people connect with their hotel in a different way. More than a place to stay, they like to seek creature comforts of home in new refreshing settings. They also want to get into a unique neighborhood and explore it firsthand.

Herald Suites Polaris distinguishes itself from the rest by offering a restful atmosphere and styled accommodations in an exciting location;  these and the comforting assurance that at the end of the day you will be personally cared for the rest of your stay.
