A Venue for Constant Pleasure
Manila Grand Opera Hotel
The Manila Grand Opera Hotel stands today on the former site of the Manila Grand Opera House, a cultural landmark that showcased Philippine arts from 1900 to the late 1950. Formally launched in August 2008, it combines the historic theater’s cultural legacy with a boost to the travel and tourism industry as the only luxury hotel in Manila’s Sta. Cruz district, near Binondo’s Chinatown.
Located on the corner of Rizal Avenue and Doroteo Jose Street, the Manila Grand Opera Hotel today caters to an increasing number of visitors from China and Taiwan, aside from habitues and residents of the area who have long hoped for such a center of elegance and beauty to emerge in their midst.
The hotel relives the grandeur of the old theater as the leading entertainment venue of Manila through a mural of blowup photographs showing some of the events the Manila Grand Opera House had hosted and personalities who performed there.
At the hotel’s entrance stands a historical marker about the inauguration of the first Philippine Assembly on Oct. 16, 1907 by United States Secretary of War William Howard Taft, a historic event that was held there.
As the only elegant hotel in downtown Manila, Manila Grand Opera Hotel expects to cater to the increasing number of Chinese visitors from the mainland and Taiwan who will feel at home staying near Manila’s Chinatown.
The hotel also serves the needs of the Chinese community residing in the nearby Chinatown by providing accommodations for their relatives and friends coming from abroad, he added.
