I’M Hotel levels up with the inclusion of Oakwood Makati Avenue into its property portfolio. It will now have two brands under one roof. Helmed by the same management team, with 150 suites attributed to Oakwood Makati Avenue, and the balance of 283 rooms and suites retaining the I’M Hotel brand. Situated at the bustling intersection of Makati and Kalayaan Avenues, Oakwood Makati Avenue presents a seamless blend of modern sophistication and distinguished hospitality.

This rebranding not only represents a change in name but a commitment to elevating the guest experience. All suites have undergone renovation & refresh and now boast amenities that intend to entice corporate and long-stay travelers, a market segment that the Ascott Group remains particularly strong in courting.

As part of The Ascott Limited, a globally renowned leader in serviced residences, Oakwood Makati Avenue’s suites range from the Studio Premier to the Two-Bedroom Executive Suite, spanning 44 sqm to 100 sqm. Each suite promises an unparalleled experience, thoughtfully crafted to cater to a variety of needs, whether it’s solo travel, an intimate escape, or a family getaway.


Standout features of the newly appointed Oakwood suites include state-of-the-art voice command-activated smart TVs, allowing guests to effortlessly control their entertainment experience with simple vocal instructions, Electrolux-fitted kitchenettes, modern conveniences such as a microwave oven, refrigerator, and a private laundry facility, and dedicated living and dining areas that enhance the sense of spaciousness, 1,000-thread-count linens, a dedicated workstation, and wellness lounge access.

With floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the city skyline, Oakwood Makati Avenue provides guests with a front-row seat to the city’s rhythmic heartbeat from dawn to dusk. It’s more than just serviced apartments; it’s a home away from home where comfort meets reliability, where every stay is an exceptional journey.

At the recent grand launch on April 16, 2024, Ms. Melissa Lim, General Manager of Oakwood Makati Avenue, emphasized the hotel’s commitment to sustainable tourism. Initiatives such as the reduction of single-use plastics and the use of locally sourced bath amenities in bracketed dispensers underscore the hotel’s dedication to environmental responsibility.

In response to changing travel behaviors, Oakwood Makati Avenue has also tailored its offerings to meet the needs of remote workers, providing in-room workspaces equipped with high-speed WiFi. Additionally, Ms. Lim unveiled the hotel’s newest food and beverage outlets, including Osteria M, a fusion Filipino-Italian restaurant, and Barangay Bar, a vibrant LGBTQ+ friendly space offering live entertainment.

For those seeking the pinnacle of luxury living in Manila, Oakwood Makati Avenue invites you to experience Home + Beyond, where every stay is an unforgettable journey.
