This 5-star luxurious hotel is situated in Malate District of Manila overlooking Manila Bay. To get there via MRT, you need to alight at the last station which is Taft Avenue, then take one more train ride and a jeepney ride. Here's the detail.
In Cubao, go to MRT-3 Araneta Center Cubao Station, ride a train bound for Taft. After getting off the train at Taft Station, take the exit to the right of the station. Avoid entering Metropoint Mall which is connected to the station. Instead, walk towards the footbridge that connects MRT-3 Taft Station to LRT-1 EDSA Station. From the turnstiles (exit machines) of Taft Station, just go to the left of the only elevator at that part of the station. To the right of the elevator is Metropoint Mall's entrance.
At the end of the footbridge is EDSA Station of LRT-1, buy your train ticket and tell the seller your going to Libertad Station. Ride the train bound for Monumento/Roosevelt and alight at the next station which is Libertad.
Walk towards the corner of Taft Avenue and Libertad Street where a Philtrust Bank is located. For your information, Libertad is now known as Arnaiz Avenue, though Libertad is still being used.
Along Libertad Street aka Arnaiz Avenue near corner Taft, wait for a jeepney with "Pier Harrison Plaza Luna" sign in front of it. Don't ride jeepney with "Harrison Plaza" sign only. There must be "Pier" word at the sign.
Ride one of these jeepneys, pay minimum and ask the driver to drop you off at "Hyatt". The jeep will take Libertad, turn right onto Harrison Street, pass through Gil Puyat aka Buendia, get back to Harrison Street, pass by Harrison Plaza, cross Quirino Avenue before taking A. Mabini Street. In Mabini, the jeep will cross San Andres and Remedios streets before it pass by the exact location of Hyatt Hotel And Casino Manila which is located at the corner of Mabini and Pedro Gil streets.
Note: During Sundays and late night of weekdays, jeepney bound for Pier is very scarse. In this case, ride a "Harrison Plaza" jeepney, then at Harrison Plaza ride any jeepney with "Mabini" on its sign.
Alternatively, you can get to Libertad corner Taft by riding a jeepney with any of these signs: "Quiapo Pasay Palengke", "Monumento Pasay Palengke" and "Divisoria Pasay Palengke". There must be "Pasay Palengke" on the jeepney signs. Otherwise, you'll get lost or you need to walk far to get to Taft Avenue corner Libertad Street.
