GENERAL DOUGLAS MACARTHUR Suite at the Manila Hotel, Philippines
save place
"I Shall Return" Gen. Douglas MacArthur
My family and some friends were priviledged to spend a night in the General's Suite at the historic Manila Hotel on Manila Bay. This suite served as the official residence of General MacArthur both before and after the war when he returned as he promised the Filipinos he would. Steeped in the history of the World War II era, this magnificent 8-room suite still houses some of General MacArthur's memorabilia. It was like turning the pages of history to sit on the General's chair at his desk and to have dinner in the elegant dining room where the General frequently entertained his guests. Everything in the suite remains as it was back in the 1940s but the bathrooms and the kitchen were updated to modern standards. A 24-hour butler provides the kind of service the General would have expected. And don't miss the spectacular sunset view of Manila Bay from the balcony.
