In this interview, filmed on 20 November 2016 in one of Ascott Makati's One-Bedroom Suites, we talk about the property's location and what advantages there are to staying in Makati over other parts of Manila, Philippines.

Ms. Golong-Gomez also tells us what it is like to be one of the first female General Managers in the industry and what Ascott does to not only find quality staff but also retain them. All this and much, much more in the video interview below.
