A newly-opened business hotel rose up a few meters from where I live.  Known for the newly-opened mall (Fishers Mall) and other night clubs along Quezon Avenue, it was an unexpected discovery that the area harbors an accommodation with an ostentatious façade catering to both pleasure and business transients.

For yet another weekend, we are at the newly opened Brentwood Suites situated at 6 Dr. Garcia Sr. Quezon City.  And it became the most relaxing staycation I had - pure bliss and relaxation.

We’re not here to attend a conference or a business meeting.  So what would be our itinerary for the night? Well, food trip and the rest is history.  But whatever it is you want to do, Brentwood Suites is strategically located at the entertainment, shopping and recreation centers of Quezon City. And even for a long walk you may engage yourself into, the comforts of a good night sleep and more is within reach at the Brentwood Suites.

The day started at a fast food chain right at the corner of the Brentwood Suites.  Then, we checked-in at the cozy lobby and reception area of the hotel where species of flowers appears to be the main theme.  Even chandeliers are patterned after a flower.

An air-conditioned superior room equipped with an LCD-TV, mini refrigerator, desk table and a sofa with footstool in one corner was booked for me.  It was so relaxing that a majority of our time were spent watching movies on the cable-TV including the hyped romantic drama Filipino films to gory American movie.

We were given the chance to check on other rooms as well and my personal favorite is the deluxe room, though not included in the published rooms.  (click for room types and rates)  “In the classification of rooms, it is somewhere between premiere and junior suite”, the hotel staff relayed to us.  The interior design makes use of natural light with even natural elements in display – stones to be specific!  I find the room charming and fit for a bachelor like me.

The junior suite is remarkable as well.  With a bath tub and spacious receiving area and minimalist interior décor, who would not resist staying on this type of room? 

Unfortunately, the executive suite was occupied, thus, we were not able to peek on the grandest room the hotel can offer.  And I heard there’s a Jacuzzi.

Brentwood Suites can be a good venue for seminars, conferences and even special occasions such as wedding receptions and birthday parties.  The conference halls are spacious, well-lit and well-maintained, conducive for an official purpose intended. 

While roaming around the vicinity, the penthouse offered us a gym where we transformed from being lazy to health conscious guests.  Still lazy that I am, I tried the stationary bike.  A treadmill and some cardiovascular training-related equipment were the choice of my friends (do they really have a choice?)  Unexpectedly, we did enjoy the stint.

Café Elements at the ground floor was the first order of the day the following day.  With eyes half-opened and senses short of function for whatever happened the night before, I have to drag myself to try their breakfast buffet.  And it was worth it.  The hotel offers the typical fusion of Filipino and Western cuisine- a complete choice of every Filipino’s breakfast meal actually. 

Making use of the natural light as part of the interiors of the cafe and upholstered chairs that scream of red, it does appear formal and apt for business meetings.

Further, internet and parking are free of charge.  No reservation needed for parking slots.  There is also a concierge and business center where rentals of computer are offered.

I have to say, Brentwood Suites is one of the best choices for an affordable staycation in Quezon City and suitable for an official function to be conducted.  It does not claim to be a business hotel but my impression does and I love it.
