The building occupied by Hotel 1898 was formerly the headquarters of the Philippines Tobacco Company, the first major Spanish multinational company. The initials of the Philippines Tobacco Company are engraved in the glass on the door at the hotel’s entrance on La Rambla. Prior to that the building was the palace of the Marquess of Comillas.
Hotel 1898 opened its doors in 2005, after completing extensive restoration work to preserve the original architectural features of the building. 1898 makes a reference to the date when Spanish colonial rule in the Philippines ended.
