GRAND PLEASURES

Seda Ver­tis North opens as the premier and largest ho­tel in Que­zon City

Northern Living - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

Que­zon City wel­comed its largest ho­tel with the open­ing of Seda in Ver­tis North, the dy­namic Ayala Land com­mu­nity en­vi­sioned to be the busi­ness and life­style hub of this pros­per­ous and thriv­ing city.

Seda Ver­tis North ush­ered its first guests through its stylish, mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties show­cas­ing Filipino fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories, com­bined with a range of busi­ness con­ve­niences.

The ex­pan­sive lobby feels ap­pro­pri­ately grand with high ceil­ings made dou­bly im­pres­sive by pieces from Ken­neth Cobon­pue, Ann Pam­intuan, and pho­tog­ra­pher-in­dus­trial i st JaimeZo bel de Ayala, whose art­work pro­vides a stun­ning back­drop for the main re­cep­tion area. Fol­low­ing a con­tem­po­rary open lay­out, the e-lounge is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble on the other side of the lobby, and fea­tures a bank of iMacs where guests can surf, check e-mails, and even play games at their con­ve­nience. Earth tones com­prise the ho­tels’ main color pal­ette, un­der­scor­ing its mod­ern el­e­gance.

Al­ready, the ho­tel’s all-day din­ing fa­cil­ity Misto is a crowd-drawer with its buf­fet of Chi­nese, Ja­panese, Filipino, Amer­i­can, In­dian, pizza and pasta, grills, and other de­light­ful op­tions. Dishes are freshly-cooked, and guests can watch while chefs work their culi­nary magic through the show kitchen and “live” cook­ing sta­tions. Desserts beckon on a lus­cious spread of their own, in­clud­ing home-made gelato, cakes, crêpes, chur­ros, and lo­cal del­i­ca­cies, pre­sent­ing an un­de­ni­able treat to lunchtime and din­ner pa­trons.

Seda Ver­tis North also has the largest ban­quet and meet­ing venue this side of Que­zon City. Its Que­zon Ball­room can ac­com­mo­date up to 700 guests for cock­tails, or 500 for sit-down din­ners, mak­ing it an ideal venue for wed­dings, birth­days, con­ven­tions, and other big events.

Guest rooms equipped with mod­ern es­sen­tials are spread out over 19 floors. The pool area, lo­cated out­doors on the same level as the gym, has a snack bar and multi-func­tional space that can also be used for events. The ho­tel’s high point, lit­er­ally, is Straight Up, Seda’s sig­na­ture bar at the roof deck. Straight Up is ex­pected to be the coolest night spot in the city, with chill-out mu­sic, fab­u­lous drinks, and de­li­cious pica-pica served in the cozy in­doors or trendy out­door set­ting that of­fers an un­par­al­leled panoramic view of the city sky­line.

Un­de­ni­ably, the 438-room Seda Ver­tis North is re-defin­ing the ho­tel ex­pe­ri­ence in Que­zon City. Also open­ing soon are its Club Lounge, Pres­i­den­tial Suite, spa and Chi­nese spe­cialty restau­rant, of­fer­ing dis­cern­ing trav­el­ers more rea­son to fre­quent this cen­ter­piece of Ayala Land’s mas­ter­planned mixe­duse de­vel­op­ment at the cen­ter of Que­zon City. Seda Ver­tis North is lo­cated at As­tra cor­ner Lux Drives, Ver­tis North, Que­zon City.
