Enjoy the space at Linden Suites

Dandi Galvez - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - There’s something to be expected when you rent a room with enough floor area to host a party or a celebration of sorts. It’s the same expectation when it’s not a party, just a simple stay for yourself or a small group of people over a weekend or during a holiday vacation. It’s the ability to stretch, both literally and figuratively, in a room that does not restrict you physically and mentally. It’s the kind of space you can find at The Linden Suites.

Located in the bustling commercial district of Ortigas, The Linden Suites is a peaceful haven within a city that is buzzing with business but has no shortage of entertainment and lifestyle venues. General manager Lawrence Wee hesitates to label the establishment as a hotel: “We are more of a serviced residence, however the functionality of this property is just like a hotel.” Each room is massive — ranging anywhere from 40 square meters at the minimum for the deluxe rooms to 278 square meters for the penthouse suite — and has everything one needs from any modern home.

“Our rooms are all equipped with a kitchen and necessary utensils. It’s really ideal for family get-togethers,” says Wee. It is no surprise then that their one- to three-bedroom suites, which can range from 63 to 122 square meters in floor area, are popular among overseas Filipinos getting together with their families.

“Most of the demand is for two or three bedrooms because of the space. People like to book these larger rooms to get together with their families, especially on the weekends. And there’s a great many things to see in the vicinity,” Wee says.

There’s the ever-popular Shangri-La Mall, SM Megamall, Robinsons Galleria and The Podium, financial institutions such as the Asian Development Bank and Philippine Stock Exchange, dining areas such as El Pueblo and Metrowalk, and recreational centers such as Wack Wack Golf and Country Club and City Golf, just a few minutes away.

Having a mix of corporate and leisure guests is exactly the kind of thing you would expect for The Linden Suites given its location. However, aside from what’s in the immediate area of shopping malls, business establishments, hospitals, and dining options, there’s also what’s inside that makes these serviced residences a destination all their own. For example, The Linden Suites has the Mesclun Restaurant & Café. Not only does it serve buffet breakfast, it also features a wide variety of menu items from Asian to European cuisine using all the best ingredients. If you are not a staying guest but coming from outside, ask about the Business Lunch at P399 nett from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday to Friday.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you want exercise, the Health Club has a Kinesis machine which targets specific muscles and problem areas of your body for improvement. Stay at the health club and discover the unique heated pool for an even more relaxing spa experience. A Jacuzzi, sauna, and massage service complete the wellness package.

Linden’s rooms can be massive. They are superbly appointed as well. Amenities such as a home entertainment system, docks for your “i” devices, and daily maid service make you feel right at home with every need at your fingertips. Wi-Fi is also readily available so you won’t miss out on what’s happening with the outside world. Social and corporate events can make great use of a number of function rooms which can host anywhere from 45 to 120 people.

What sets The Linden Suites apart from other serviced residences is truly the space it can give you. And with a massive renovation that’s just about complete, one can expect to find a fresher, more modern accommodation to look forward to. Wee continues: “We are unique because of our space. Here at Linden Suites, we give you room for your mind and body to breathe.”


The Linden Suites is located at 37 San Miguel Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. For more information, call (63 2) 638-7878, e-mail at [email protected] or [email protected] or go to its website at http://www.lindensuites.com/.
