Cebu City hotel creating buzz in PH hospitality industry


RESTAURANT Rica with whimsical furniture

The Henry Hotel (, a hotel in Cebu City, has been creating buzz in the Philippine hospitality industry. A boutique hotel that is unique, full of personality and charm, The Henry is gaining popularity from local and foreign tourists, as guests are awed with its out-of-the-box interior setting and its remarkable service to its clients.

PLAYFUL art display at the lobby of The Henry

Ranked No. 3 in for the most sought-after hotels in Cebu City, it has climbed its way up in the competitive hospitality industry in Cebu, lining up with hotel chains such as Marco Polo and Radisson Blu.

Coming from its tagline “Like No Other,” The Henry didn’t hold back on creating the ultimate boutique hotel experience equipped with a mix of vintage, industrial and rustic vibe. With 38 rooms of unique décor, your room can highlight a mural of Marilyn Monroe, Moroccan windows, a lady posing on her vintage convertible, or you can be billeted at a brick room, or pastel- to bright-colored walls, to name a few. Every nook and cranny of the hotel has been tastefully filled with creative pieces from the European vintage furniture welcoming guests in its lobby to a Volkswagen Beetle displayed in one of its floors, a wide-array of paintings from French pop-art painter Delphine Groult de Lorme down to the quirky room signs, no single thing in The Henry will look like anything you’ve seen before.

Comfortable stay

Complete with all the little extras to make every guest stay as comfortable as it can ever be, all rooms are equipped with flat screen cable TV, DVD player, personal refrigerator, wardrobe space, WiFi and the like. The hotel also has its outdoor swimming pool; function rooms; Virus, an upscale boutique; Rica’s, a local gourmet restaurant; Scrapyard, an upscale bar/lounge; Qube, an art gallery within the building; and Lohas Salon by professional Korean hairstylist Sun Ok Seo.

The visual appeal merged with its charm and intimate service makes it a place worth staying and going back to. The Henry is definitely becoming a “must-see” place not just in Cebu, but also in the entire Philippines.

The Henry is located at No. 1 Paseo Saturnino, Maria Luisa Road, Banilad in Cebu City.  It is 30 minutes away from Mactan International Airport. Hospitality International Inc. is the management company that runs The Henry Hotel.

    Today’s trendy, tomorrow’s tacky.

    The article sounds more like a paid advertisement. You know, like, “Wake up to the sunrise you only see in your dreams” or “Feel the softness of the pillows unlike anything you have ever felt before”.

    Excellent stay there last June. My only compaint is they close the pool too early.
