We're all used to the typical hotel set-up. There's the welcome chandelier when you enter the door, the neutral-colored hallways leading to the suites, and the sleek and modern furniture in your room. While there's nothing wrong with that, why not try something a little more quirky the next time you go out of town? We've rounded up 10 hotels in the Philippines that are already destinations of their own.
