With Marriott International’s contract to manage Cebu City Marriott Hotel ending December 31, 2017, hotel owner AyalaLand Hotels and Resorts Corporation (AHRC) has announced the property will reopen under its own brand, Seda, later this year.
The hotel has closed its doors and will undergo refurbishment on rooms and amenities before its relaunch.
Cebu City Marriott Hotel, which opened in 1997, has over the years helped position Cebu Business Park as the premier business district in the city and region, said AHRC’s president and CEO Al Legaspi.
But now, Seda, which has more than 1,400 rooms throughout the Philippines, is “ready to fill the needs of Cebu Business Park locators and visitors”, Legaspi continued.
Since launching in 2012, the Seda brand has expanded its footprint across the Philippines, including in the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Iloilo, Nuvali in Laguna, and Quezon.
Seda in the Cebu Business Park will be the brand’s biggest in the Visayas island, Legaspi shared. Construction on another Seda hotel will begin at Cebu IT Park, set to be the first Seda hotel and serviced apartments outside of Metro Manila.
