Dusit Thani Manila is a mid-rise building operating mainly as a hotel. Managed by Dusit International, this hotel has undergone several name changes, including Manila Garden Hotel and Dusit Hotel Nikko Manila. It has a gross floor area of 2,500 square meters and has 538 rooms spread across 16 floors.

From above, the building has a Y shape. Viewed from the side, it has an exterior of alternating horizontal bands of concrete walls and recesses that contain glass windows. It has a concrete fence with plants inside. It also has two porte cocheres, the bigger one facing Parksquare Drive and the smaller one facing Palm Drive.

Occupying the entire block surrounded by streets Arnaiz Avenue, Parksquare Drive (also called Theater Drive), Palm Drive, and EDSA, you can reach Dusit Thani Manila using MRT Line 3 or a bus plying EDSA and then deboard at MRT Ayala Station, which is adjacent to One Ayala. You can walk towards Dusit Thani through the corridors or the adjoining roads of One Ayala and SM Makati. You can also walk on the sidewalk of EDSA. Still, I’ll advise against it because you’ll be exposed to smoke from buses and other vehicles. You can also use Grab or Taxi to drop you at the main entrance. If you’re bringing your own car, the access to its parking space is facing Palm Drive and near EDSA. You can also park at the nearby Park Square across its main entrance.
