An out-of-box hospitality experience, The Henry Hotel Cebu has
attracted positive interest and good reviews
The Henry Hotel, Metro Cebu’s first boutique hotel, can certainly lay claim to the tagline: “like no other”. With its quirky décor and design, it radiates an out-of-the-box hospitality experience that has piqued public interest and gained some international attention.
“The hotel has been garnering positive reviews from local and foreign tourists awed by its concept. As a result, The Henry has managed to consistently rank as the second best hotel in the city, according to TripAdvisor, the trusted global travel website,” says general manager Mirro Reperuga. “It has managed to achieve this milestone within just a year of operation.”
Quite a mean feat, given the fiercely competitive Cebu market with over 70 local hotels angling for a piece of the business pie.
Every nook and cranny of the 38-room property has been filled with creative conversation pieces, from the much-photographed fire-engine red doorman welcoming guests in the lobby to the eclectic choice of colors, furniture, wall murals, pop-art paintings and room signage, artfully mixing European, vintage, industrial and the rustic. There’s even art paying homage to the legendary boxer “Pacman” that’s eye- catching, if not whimsical.
It’s just as stimulating in the guestrooms and suites, each boasting distinct details such as a Marilyn Monroe mural, Moroccan windows, a lady posing on a vintage convertible, and walls in brick or brightly colored pastels, to name a few.
Esthetics, however, isn’t the only priority of The Henry Hotel Cebu. Guest comfort and convenience also takes centerstage with its host of thoughtful facilities. The garden pool invites one to bask in the sun; the Reading Room has plush seating to enjoy a book; and Salon Lohas offers seductive therapies. Meanwhile at Rica’s, gourmet meals are the norm, and interesting browsing is available at Virus Boutique in the lobby.
For corporate and social functions, Space 140 and Space 150 are ideal venues, which can be arranged in a variety of settings to suit discriminating event planners.
Blending instant visual appeal and intimate, friendly service, The Henry Hotel Cebu epitomizes a must-stay accommodation, certainly one worth several return visits.
