Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila to close its doors this July

The luxury hotel in Pasay City is about to undergo renovations

For almost five decades, the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila has been one of the go-to destinations for Filipinos seeking a luxury stay, a unique dining experience, and a picturesque view of Manila Bay. Unfortunately, it has to put its operations to a halt as it's about to close its doors on July 1.

According to its statement, the closure is part of its "ongoing commitment to providing our guests and colleagues with the best possible experience." It also said that it “will honor engagements and reservations until the end of June and close its iconic doors thereafter.”

Opened in 1976, Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila is one of the luxury gems of Pasay City. It features the design of Philippine National Artist Leandro Locsin and has been the “hotel of choice of visiting VIPs, from former U.S. President Barack Obama to the Queen of Pop Madonna,” as per Forbes Travel Guide.

“Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila had a long legacy as the hotel of choice for almost five decades for heads of states, celebrities, and global corporations alike, and it has been home to celebrations and milestones of our beloved patrons and clients,” the luxury hotel stated. “We are deeply grateful for the unwavering support and patronage of our stakeholders, employees, and guests who have been instrumental in this long journey."
