Many reps choose to stay at the Manila Marriott Hotel near the airport, however it is in a very remote and industrial area of Metro Manila. Our recommendation would be to stay at one of the following hotels more conveniently located:

Recommendations in Makati

Manila for the Weekend

Quick weekend getaways to world renowned islands nearby like Bohol, Boracay, and Palawan are easier than you think. And cheap, too!

Day trips to Taal and Tagaytay from Manila are fun and accessible as well. 

It is more fun in the Philippines!

On behalf of the counseling team, we look forward to hosting you at ISM.
