Since typhoon Pedring, majority - if not all of Sofitel’s operation have been suspended. Parts of Sofitel Luxury Hotel Manila, particularly Spiral Restaurant was badly affected by the recent typhoon. The hotel operation was suspended and Spiral was placed under renovation. If you are wondering what’s the status of the hotel and spiral, please read the following:

Sofitel Hotel Rooms and Facilities:
Starting today 10 October 2011, Sofitel Manila’s Guest Rooms and Suites have been re-opened. They are now accepting check-ins and new reservations. Other Outlets and Facilities such as the Le Spa, The Poolside, Fever Luxe Lounge, Philippe Tordjman Le Salon and The Zen Institute are expected to resume operation on 30 October 2011. The Pool and Club Millésime are also, fully operational.
Sofitel took this chance to renovate and upgrade the look and feel of Spiral Restaurant. According to some sources, Spiral will re-open early next year, but Cash Cash Pinoy recently sent an email that Spiral will be re-opening its doors by June 2012. Either way, it’s a long time and Christmas is just around the corner. So where’s the buffet?
Sofitel will continue to serve “Special” Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner Buffets at the Le Bar which is located at the lobby of the hotel. It is a smaller venue and Mostly Spiral Restaurant Specialty Dishes will be served. Lunch Buffet at the Le Bar Costs P1,474 net and Dinner Costs P1,781. Prices are a bit cheaper than Spiral due to the limited number of dishes that will be served. Le Bar will be serving buffets starting today.
Le Bar offers an intercontinental buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Such favorites as Pan-fried Foie Gras, US Prime Rib and chocolate fountains will be available. Breakfast comes with free flowing champagne on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, while on Sundays, Champagne Brunch features up to 7 brands of champagne and sparkling wines.
Aside from Le Bar, the Snaps Sports Bar and Sunset Bar will also be open to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Special a la carte menus have been prepared by Sofitel’s multi-awarded Executive Chef Marko Rankel of Spiral fame, and are available at Le Bar, Snaps Sports Bar and Sunset Bar.
Le Bar is relatively small compared to Spiral, It is best to reserve ahead of time.
