It is always a surprise for buildings, parks and houses to survive such wars as it is almost inevitable that everything will be broup ht down to bricks and ashes, and the Luneta Hotel is no exception.
Located in Ermita Manila, Philippines, the Luneta Hotel is one of the remaining historical structures that surpassed the Battle of Manila in 1945. The hotel’s name was derived from its location across Luneta Rizal Park on Kalaw Avenue. The hotel itself is the only remaining example of French Renaissance Architecture conjoined with Filipino Stylised beaux arts in the country. It wa s said that the Luneta Hotel once became a brothel for American soldiers who were to proceed on Corregid or after Manila became an open city during World War II. The veterans who survived the war recalled how the hotel served as hope due to how it surpassed bombardments and how soldiers who were scared and dyinp, were comforted.
The Luneta Hotel was abandoned and closed down in the year 19®y, later on relaunching at May 2O 4 and beinp installed with a historical marker by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines.
