Megaworld recently launched its eight hotel property Hotel Lucky Chinatown, situated in Manila’s commerce and trade hub and the oldest Chinatown in the world: Binondo. The grand opening of the modern contemporary hotel was graced by executives Mr. Jeremy Go (Resident Manager, Hotel Lucky Chinatown), Ms. Lourdes T. Gutierrez-Alfonso (Chief Operating Officer, Megaworld), DOT Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat, Mr. Kevin L. Tan (Chief Strategy Officer, Megaworld), and Mr. Raymundo Melendres (Managing Director, Global One Hotel, Inc.)
This hotel is directly connected to Lucky Chinatown Mall via a footbridge. It boasts of 93 rooms and suites ranging from Standard Queen, Standard Twin, Junior Suite, and Executive Suite. The apartment-style suites are designed with pops of bright colors that complement the predominantly white and beige palette of the interior.

You can also find something to tempt your palate at Hotel Lucky Chinatown when you check their all-day dining restaurant, the Cafe de Chinatown. This restaurant is managed and operated by the Raintree Group of Companies, the same company that owns and operates Museum Cafe and Terraz in Makati, as well as Chelsea Kitchen.
Aside from that, this hotel features its own Zabana bar, spa, sauna, jacuzzi, and fitness center. The hotel also has a spacious, high-ceiling Grand Ballroom that can accommodate up to 350 guests in banquet setting, and can be divided into three smaller rooms. It also has a boardroom and three meeting rooms for smaller groups.
“We take great pride in continuing to bring more excitement here in the world’s oldest Chinatown with the opening of Hotel Lucky Chinatown. With the hotel directly connected to Manila Chinatown’s biggest mall, guests will be able to savor the distinct, dynamic vibe of the Chinatown culture as they enjoy the sights and sounds of this bustling hub,” says Jeremy Russell S. Go, resident manager, Hotel Lucky Chinatown.
The hotel takes pride in its modern contemporary design—sleek lines, clean palettes, minimal décor—a glaring contrast to the old, charming vibe of Binondo.
Go adds, “Our idea is to blend modernity with Binondo’s heritage. While Hotel Lucky Chinatown features a modern contemporary design, the moment our guests get out of the hotel, they will feel the culture that truly is Chinatown. We want to provide that distinction so the experience becomes richer."
