Robert DeNiro's Hotel Is The Worst Luxury Hotel Of 2015
Did you know that actor Robert DeNiro owned a luxury hotel in Manila? Well apparently the Goodfellas star, co-owns the Nobu Hotel Manilla with chef Nobu Matshuhisa and movie producer Meir Teper.
The hotel is located in Entertainment City, Paranaque in the Philippines. The area is a Las-Vegas like gaming and entertainment area on a large 8 square-kilometers land in an area of Manilla Bay. The Nobu Hotel rooms are well decorated with lavish décor and they have a beautiful outdoor pool area, fitness gym as well as the Nobu Spa. The hotel itself is large, with 321 rooms.
The 5-star hotel at the City Of Dreams in Entertainment City has received many reviews by patrons on TripAdvisor.com and you can read them here.
Unfortunately, though, Luxury Travel Intelligence (LTI), a members-only group that consist of jetsetters and high net-worth individuals, has named the Nobu Hotel Manilla the worst new luxury hotel of 2015.
The Oscar winning actor and Michelin star chef's luxury hotel has also disappointed reviewers from Luxury Travel, an Etihad Airlines partner, who reviewed the hotel anonymously, as well as paid full rates for their visits
Michael Crompton, the company co-founder told fortune magazine “Nobu Hotel Manila was a great disappointment”. He also added that Luxury Travel has received “negative feedback” from some of their members about the hotel.
Michael Crompton comments that the hotel seems to be suffering from poor management and does not deliver any special experiences for its customers.
Guillaume de Vaudrey, a professional travel photographer says that he did not find the low rating surprising at all, his view on the hotel is “it is fine for leisure travelers who are fans of casinos. However, it is not at all appropriate for business-minded travelers or high-ranking VIPs who have much better options when in Manila.”
