Seam­less Seda

Sun.Star Cebu - - LIVE! - MILA C. ESPINA mce­spin­ter­na­tional@ya­

Af­ter the great years of Cebu Mar­riott Ho­tel comes Seda Ayala Cen­ter Cebu. “Seam­less,” as the name con­notes. It will spell smooth and scin­til­lat­ing ser­vice and ameni­ties. Seda se­nior group gen­eral man­ager An­drea Mastel­lone is as ex­cited as Metro Cebu, this be­ing the ninth prop­erty of the home­grown prop­erty in seven des­ti­na­tions around the coun­try.

The old Mar­riott ed­i­fice is un­der­go­ing some dra­matic facelift­ing to make it a com­pet­i­tive busi­ness ho­tel. The lobby will be wider, with higher ceil­ings, and some 301 guest rooms will be re­fur­bished. The his­toric ball­room, which saw many events in tourism and cor­po­rate groups, will even be more spa­cious for 300-plus guests and will fea­ture state-of-the-art tech­ni­cal driv­ers.

At Misto Cebu, food will suit the taste of lo­cal and for­eign guests. The usual break­fast, lunch and din­ner spe­cial­ties will be equally de­lec­ta­ble. Lounge mu­sic and rooms for meet­ings and VIP lounge will cre­ate a sooth­ing am­biance.

Au­gust 2018 is not so far away when Seda comes alive in Cebu. A hearty wel­come.
