For years I’d stare at this hotel whenever we drove by Manila. It was dark from the outside, dusty, and seemingly damp. Years of neglect couldn’t really mask the architectural poise of the actual structure. Today, a newly revived Luneta Hotel opened its doors again. I’m so lucky I got to see the historical marker of the building unveiled. I think full operations start next week. It feels like hearing the first beep indicating the end of the flatline state. I snuck a peek and took these photos earlier.
No more secretly stalking this old lady or taking her photos from afar.
Welcome back, Luneta Hotel!
Manila missed you.
