In order to pick the BEST Baguio hotel, we had to consider not just the price, amenities, service, quality of rooms and food but most especially that over-all ultimate Baguio experience! Picking a hotel along the famous Session Road would be very easy but personally we thought that to capture the real essence of the City of Pines, you ought to surround yourself with as much pine trees, lush greens as you can and immerse yourself to as much natural beauty and fresh air during your whole stay. Camp John Hay is the perfect place for that no doubt and of course… The Manor Hotel being the most prestigious and trusted of all was the #1 place to consider!
In picking the Best Baguio hotel, we opted for a trusted name when it comes to hospitality excellence and The Manor at Camp John Hay is the name that can truly deliver!
I’ve heard so many tales about The Manor in Camp John Hay before. Tales about its grandeur, its magnificence and the very prestigious Le Chef restaurant which has garnered so many adoring fans over the years! I’ve been very curious for quite some time and quite skeptical as well. As you know, we’re very careful with the places we feature, for we always make sure they are worthy of our valuable time and credibility. By the time we arrived in chilly Baguio that morning and as soon as we entered its doors, I knew then that we were once again at the perfect place!

Come rain or come shine, Baguio City still reigns as the best place to relax and unwind. Personally, I prefer going there during the rainy season because I can truly experience that “chill” which I never get here in Manila. Also, it is not as crowded during these months so you can enjoy a very solemn stay at the City of Pines.
For us, the best places to stay would be those establishments which already have perfected their craft and has stood the test of time. Yes, there may be new hotels being opened in Baguio with new rooms, new furniture and promising great stays but realistically speaking, they still have a long way to go to match what hotels like The Manor at Camp John Hay have already established. The best advice we can give you is to go for a trusted name like The Manor at Camp John Hay! Furthermore, if you will stay at a place with a top-notch restaurant as great as Le Chef, then surely it will all be worth your hard-earned money! =)
So for us here at wheninmanila.com, the Best Baguio hotel is no doubt The Manor at Camp John Hay!
