From 1912 to 2003, the country’s premier horseracing events were held at what used to be the San Lazaro Hippodrome in the heart of Manila. Today, a new kind of excitement and luxury stands at the same locale in the form of the 22-story Winford Resort & Casino Manila (WRCM).  

Now known as the San Lazaro Tourism and Business Park, the 40-acre ground where this luxury hotel is located is surrounded by thriving businesses, residential communities, and office spaces which was proclaimed a tourism economic zone with information technology component in 2009.

Opened in 2017, WRCM offers 128 spacious rooms and handsome suites, minus the prohibitive rate typical of a luxury hotel. Each one features sleek décor that incorporates subtle colors and themes for an Asian-inspired touch. Guests are invited to pamper themselves in the comfort of our Deluxe Room or relish the upmarket design of our Executive Suite.

Additionally, WRCM boasts a 700-seater ballroom on the fourth floor to accommodate weddings, parties, and MICE events, plus six food and beverage outlets each of which captures the spirit of the Filipino-Chinese community wherein it is situated, namely Hippodrome Bar & Lounge; Winford Cafe; Copa de Manila; Red Dynasty; Zabana Pool Bar; and Executive Dining.

Completing this world-class casino hotel complex are a three-level entertainment and gaming area, helicopter pad, heated swimming pool, gym and spa, retail outlets, an eight-level parking structure, plus a WRCM shuttle service that treats members and guests to free scheduled roundtrip transportation to the property from Caloocan, Bulacan, Quezon City, and other points in the Greater Manila Area.
