The two towers of Hyatt City of Dreams Manila were designed by architects Asya Design, with interiors by Arlen P. De Guzman Design Associates. It has 365 rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, ranging in size from 36 to 85 square metres. In the living space, guests will find a fully functioning work space with an ergonomic desk chair, a 47 inch LED HDTV with an interactive interface, an iPod docking station, and a safe large enough to accommodate a laptop.

Meanwhile, guests staying in any of the 45 Club rooms within Hyatt City of Dreams Manila are welcome to visit the Club Lounge on Level 7 of Tower II where they can enjoy breakfast, drinks and light snacks throughout the day, and canapés and pre-dinner cocktails.

General Manager Stephen Radcliffe said, “The whole Hyatt City of Dreams Manila team is excited to open our doors to guests. We are looking forward to introducing this witty, charming and inviting brand to Southeast. With our comfortable rooms, bustling dining venues, great facilities and access to all that is on offer at City of Dreams Manila—not to mention the capital itself—we are confident our guests are going to have a delightful stay with us.”
