Traveling for work is no doubt a great opportunity to get to see new places. But the ugly truth is, it’s often a source of stress, too. Going out of town, locating your business hotel, and attempting to go to your meetings through heavy traffic often prove to be taxing affairs.

In Metro Manila, an emerging chain of business-lifestyle hotels is addressing the needs of business travelers and even casual staycationers with its convenient branch locations and efficient service. The Privato Hotel Group has all its branches in the heart of key commercial districts, making them an ideal choice for travelers with packed schedules.

The Ortigas branch of Privato is strategically located across Capitol Commons and the Ortigas Central Business District. In Quezon City, you can find Privato at the heart of Tomas Morato, minutes away from the city’s major landmarks. Soon, this business-leisure hotel chain will be opening its doors in Makati. Set to open in the third quarter of 2019, the new branch will be part of the growing commercial district of San Antonio.

With a deep understanding of what business travelers need, Privato ensures that convenience is woven into every guest’s experience. Since Privato hotels are in key business districts, both meeting & lifestyle venues are always close by, minimizing the hassle of spending on expensive taxi fares and navigating unfamiliar commuter routes.

With reasonable rates, companies looking to book a stay in Privato will find the ideal accommodations for any engagement. Privato Quezon City, in particular, recently won a Trip Advisor Award for consistently garnering excellent guest reviews. As a whole, the Privato Group specializes in a balance between the convenience of business and the small luxuries of casual leisure. “We’re aspirational in brand but accessible in price,” says Privato founder and president Gab Perez. “Our sweet spot is that we give champagne for the price of beer.”

Every Privato branch offers free Wi-Fi for guests, allowing for seamless productive sessions. With private function rooms available, companies can also take advantage of the hotel’s ease of access. And because even the most serious business travelers want a bit of leisure when traveling, Privato boasts in-room massage services, workout facilities, swimming pools, lounges, and restaurants.

Guests at Privato Quezon City can enjoy prime rib tapa and Southern fried chicken breakfast meals in the lobby restaurant, while those staying at Privato Ortigas can get their fix of delicious fare at the Verona Rooftop Lounge. With its Key to the City program, they can also get exclusive discounts and freebies from surrounding establishments simply by presenting their Privato hotel key card.

Despite its emphasis on business-friendly convenience, Privato’s charm lies in the personalized experience it delivers to guests. Perez sees to it that the clients feel at home, even when they’re visiting for work purposes. “The unique thing about hospitality is that properties can be replicated, whereas the people cannot. You cannot replicate an attendant’s smile or a front receptionist’s tone. I always tell my staff that what we do is not just a job. These small details are integral to who we are at Privato, and we want all our guests to feel that Filipino hospitality.”
