 Hotel Jen Manila is delighted to announce the launch of Windows By The Bay, which brings yet another relaxing venue to the hotel. Located on the 19th floor, this chill-out lounge offers breathtaking night views of Manila Bay and Roxas Boulevard, making it the best observation post in the Bay Area.
Guest experience starts when the concierge team valet-parks the guest’s car and lounge representatives escort them to the express lift. They will be warmly welcomed by a welcome complimentary platter which may be paired with some wines carefully selected from around the world for their pleasure. Those who prefer cocktails are still covered. They can just let the bartender know the drink that can complete their night.
Entertainment will also be available every Thursday. A guitarist playing classic acoustic songs will definitely soothe the guests’ soul with its music and they will eventually find themselves experiencing “That Jen Feeling.”
All they have to do is to sit back, have some wine, mingle over some of signature platters and enjoy the view – a super-simple formula that will give diners a very extraordinary experience.

The hotel prides itself in having just around the corner some of Philippines’ famous landmarks, where Filipino bravery and heroism were witnessed, such as Rizal Shrine, Intramuros, the old city of Fort Santiago and, at the heart of these places, Manila Cathedral, a basilica dedicated to Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, the Patroness of the Philippines reflecting how Filipinos value their religion as Roman Catholics.
Hotel Jen Manila continues to cater to the next ‘Jeneration’ traveler with its easy fuss-free efficiency supported by a cutting-edge technology throughout the hotel; fast free WiFi available everywhere, always; mobile charging stations placed conveniently throughout the hotel to keep their devices on the go and the newly renovated operating 24 hours a day, which provides an ideal place for small meetings or simply to enjoy a sip of good, fresh coffee.
Edward Kollmer, general manager of Hotel Jen Manila, said: We are excited to showcase Windows By The Bay and hope it becomes a popular spot for both guests within the hotel and our local community. The breathtaking views, the relaxing ambience and the cocktails will provide you with an evening out, in the spirit of how Hotel Jen makes you feel: excited and happy, respected and cared for and as valued members of a group of likeminded adventurers in life.”
