Building History


The Grand Hotel Manila opened in 1957, which became a center for arts and culture visited by locals and world celebrities alike due to its proximity to the Liceu theater. The building was erected as Hotel Manila by Tobacco company across the street from their headquarters building.

The hotel’s long history, paired with Le Méridien’s brand heritage, the contemporary art found throughout the building and the location in one of the city’s most creative neighbourhoods, form a one-of-a-kind recipe that sparks imagination, invites for social and business get togethers and stimulates the senses.
