Seda Hotel Bacolod is this hotel chain’s 7th location in the Philippines. The City of Smiles welcome them with open arms.
Seda Hotel Bacolod Now Open
SEDA Capitol Central also known as Seda Hotel Bacolod has just opened their doors here in Bacolod City. The city is excited to have a new and modern hotel in our midst. Plus we are excited because this means more job opportunities for our people.
The expanding Seda chain draws from its many homecourt advantages. This results from its strong web of relations within the communities it serves. This is particularly relevant in recruiting talent in new properties like Bacolod.
“Our recruits are excited about joining Seda because of its growing reputation as a local brand with world-class standards,” says Seda’s Senior Group General Manager Andrea Mastellone. With rigorous training, local talents evolve to become seasoned hoteliers. While they are properly oriented towards the needs of international clients, they retain at the same time their innate Filipino desire to delight guests.
It is reported that locals make up close to 95 per cent of every Seda property. That means 95% of Seda Hotel Bacolod employees are Negrenses.
SEDA Hotel Bacolod Amenities
Seda Capitol Central in Bacolod City, which is standing proudly on the corner of Lacson Street and North Capitol Road, will have a total of 154 rooms and will also include offices and residential buildings. Other facilities include Seda’s signature dining outlets, Misto and Straight Up roof deck bar, banquet and meeting venues, a swimming pool, gym, and e-lounge. With all these features, this just means that they will employ hundreds of people with varying capacities in their fold.
SEDA for Business Travelers
Seda Hotel Bacolod is the brand’s second hotel in the Visayas. Responding to strong economic growth in the region, the AyalaLand Hotels and Resorts built this property. It is foreseen that in the next five years, we will see an influx of travelers to the province. This is partially because of the rise of Business Process Outsourcing firms (BPOs) seeking provincial sites, according to industry studies.
Mastellone says, “Our goal is to be the preferred hospitality brand in the country catering to both local and global travelers. By offering our guests superior accommodations, service in line with international standards and a strategic location, Seda has succeeded in attracting a loyal following and an exceptional guest return ratio.”
Seda Hotel Bacolod will increase the brand’s room inventory to more than 1,400.
Center of Business
Seda Hotel Bacolod is part of a nine-hectare Ayala Land mixed-use development. They are centrally located in a park that was once part of the provincial capital.
The estate is being developed into a new urban growth center serving the whole of Negros Occidental. The area will highlight a regional mall with a wide array of retail and shopping options. This future mall will be a few steps away from the hotel.
Advantages of a New Hotel
According to a global real estate services firm, homegrown brands like Seda Hotel Bacolod are crucial in the tourism industry. They cater to a value-oriented market and other segments that international chains do not serve.
“Our growth has been highly organic and supported by the markets where we are located. We intend to continue that trend as we continue to expand,” says Legaspi. Also under development are its first resort hotel in Palawan and other city hotels and serviced apartments in Metro Manila. This brings the total room inventory of the brand to 3,500 by 2019.
