WOW Architects designs shipping-inspired Conrad Manila

Conrad Manila

SM Hotels and Conventions Corporation opened Conrad Hotel Manila in Metro Manila in the Philippines. WOW Architects was the architect of the property that is managed by Hilton Worldwide.

Conrad Manila's architecture was inspired by the shipping vessels that ply the bay. The hotel sits atop the two-level S Maison, a retail complex, and has direct connections via walking bridges to SMX Convention Center, adjacent to SM Mall of Asia and Mall of Asia.  

Conrad Manila has four event halls and two ballrooms that span more than 4,000 square meters (43,056 square feet). For al fresco parties, also available is The Veranda, an outdoor garden space overlooking the cityscape.
