With a stunning architecture inspired by cruise ships, Conrad Manila has 347 rooms, each with distinctive art pieces.

The artworks of notable artists  include signature works that are showcased at the hotel’s three dining establishments. Its art collection is a panorama of contemporary paintings, sculptures, decorative art and 3D art. There are also elements that highlight traditional Filipino arts and crafts.

An Art Program committee was in charge of the acquisition of these artworks, with Nestor Jardin as project director and Ma. Victoria Herrera, Vita Sarenas and Luni Doctor as curators.
