There's a surfeit of good-value accommodation in Iloilo; much of it conveniently located for eating and shopping, on or just off Benigno Aquino Ave and in nearby Smallville. There are fewer good options downtown, which also has a dearth of recommended restaurants open for dinner. A massive development, the Megaworld Iloilo Business Park, the city's version of Makati in Manila, is going up just behind SM City Mall.
