You asked for it and now you got it a review of Angeles newest hotel, the Lewis Grand. Please note that when we did this review the hotel was not yet open for business as such this is more like a cursory preview however we hope it will give you a good idea of what the hotel looks like, what features it has and how much it costs to stay there.

A more thorough and in-depth review will be coming when the hotel opens for business including an AE Exclusive on the Grand Opening.

From the grand and spacious foyer through to the grand ball room, large rooms with king size beds and the majestic swimming pool it is very obvious this hotel will set the standards for others to follow in the very near future.

When we visited Lewis we were given a two hour tour by Lewis himself. Yes you read that right a 2 hour tour, that's how big and impressive this place is.

Construction of the hotel commenced in December 2007 and has proceeded at a rapid rate. Currently there are still workers on site working around the clock to try and get things finalized so the hotel will be ready for occupancy by May 1. It is noteworthy that when we were viewing the rooms I listened for any construction noise and I am glad to report this was non existent.

From my point of view this is a somewhat ambitious date however when I look at all they have achieved in 5 short months I think they may just make it.

We asked Lewis what does he see as separating his hotel from others and he replied "I will charge the same price as my competitors yet my hotel will offer so much more. Take for example my standard rooms. They will be charged at 2,400 peso yet they will be bigger than any similarly priced room in Angeles. All the rooms come complete with a king sized bed built in plasma TV, carpet on the floors, large and clean bathrooms with proper American sized bathtubs".

Talking with Lewis one gets the impression he is a young man with very definate ideas as to what his target market is and what his hotels patrons needs will be.

This when completed will be a very impressive hotel and a welcome addition to the ranks of up market accommodation in Angeles.

From the outside visitors get the impression of size and immensity. This impression is further bolstered upon entering the main foyer.

Of to your right is a semi circular stairway leading to the first floor and observation deck.

The main foyer has a sky domed roof, two gigantic air-conditioning units to keep things cool, and a large practical reception area.

Upon entering the foyer and lobby area you immediately get the impression of size and efficiency. The main lobby features white floor tiles and a sunroof these are juxtaposed by the wooden door frames and stairwell banisters. The overall effect is one of modern, spaciousness and class.

Stealing a leaf from the Orchid groups approach Lewis has placed a heavy emphasis on the hotel swimming pool and surrounding garden.

This is a large oval shaped pool with sunken seats and small Jacuzzi style pools at each end.

This hotel is specifically designed to act as a holiday resort as much as a large modern day hotel. The resort type atmosphere is created by the large swimming pool and lush spacious tropical garden which surrounds it. It was obvious to me that this garden will be a splendid playground and relaxation area for patrons of the hotel and local expats alike.

The swimming pool is in many ways the central attraction of this hotel and the all rooms facing this aspect have balconies overlooking the pool. When we were checking out the rooms I noticed a delightful cool breeze which when the balcony sliding doors are opened keeps the room at a very pleasant temperature so much so, that there was no need to use the air conditioner.

This is a large hotel comprised of 68 rooms and built on a 2 acre block. There are four floors in this hotel and seemingly endless corridors all with large rooms overlooking the pool and garden.

There is a bar area running parallel to the pool which allows customers to sip on a refreshing beverage without ever leaving the pool. At the back of the swimming pool is an overhanging roof which according to Lewis will serve as a waterfall into the pool. They also have plans to show a video on the white wall behind the waterfall or on the actual water as it cascades down into the pool. There is also a special light machine which will beam colored lights onto the waterfall at nightime.

There is also a large open air bar area situated behind the white columns. This is attached to the hotels main body and will be a superb area to enjoy a quiet drink or meal in as you watch the goings on in the pool.

This is a tiled area with a Perspex roof allowing patrons ample sunlight without getting to hot.

There is a large kitchen area and Lewis was proudly informing us how he has secured the services of a world renowned chef who actually conducts his own cooking classes in the Philippines. They did not have a menu ready at the time of this review however if the kitchen size and modernization is anything to go by the cuisine from this kitchen will be of an excellent standard.

This is a big spacious building seemingly comprised of endless corridors and rooms. At least that is the way it seemed when we were taken on the tour.

The rooms here are large and spacious. All rooms have a king sized bed with firm mattresses. The rooms are carpeted and quite plush without being over indulgent or opulent. They all have heavy drapes to keep out the noise and unwanted attention as they all feature nice use of stained wood giving them a feeling of homeliness.

All standard rooms have a built in plasma TV

For me a hotel room’s bathroom is important and the bathrooms in the Lewis Grand I thought were some of the best I had seen in Angeles. They are spotlessly clean and all feature a sliding glass door around the shower area a so called rain water shower, and a decent sized bathtub.

One feature I really like was the sliding doors around the shower area as this allows for all sorts of viewing pleasure.

There are also several family rooms which feature a king sized bed along with a single bed enabling a family of four to sleep here comfortably.

The room prices for the Lewis Grand Hotel are as follows

Standard King P1,650

Deluxe King P2,700

Corner Deluxe P3,600

superior room 3800p

Family Suite P4,600

Executive Room P4,700

executive jacuzzi 4700p

Pool Side King P6,500

Presidential Suites P13,500

In order to eliminate any confusion, these prices include all fees and are the net prices per night.
All AE members still get the 15% off the promo prices.

This will indeed be a very special hotel it is big, reasonably priced and has many special features which will establish it as a world class hotel in Angeles City.

There are many advantages to staying at Lewis Grand not the least of which is they give a discount of your total bill for all AE members on request.
