There’s something to be said for the classics, and there is nothing more classic than a stay at the Pen. The hotel is a Makati landmark, occupying the most prime of the central business district’s prime real estate, right on the corner of Ayala and Makati Avenues. If a testament to the grand dame’s place in the city’s social life is ever needed, one only has to walk through The Lobby. The awe-inspiring “Sunburst” sculpture by Philippine National Artist Napoleon Abueva on the ceiling looks down on an ever-changing cast of politicians, tycoons and celebrities.
