Most business travelers usually consider urban for their proximity to offices, and KL Serviced Residences is no exception. But did you know that there’s more to this hotel in Makati than just a convenient location?
Sure, the interiors are artistically pleasing, but did you know that there’s a rich history behind this building? Here are 3 things you might not know about the place.
1. The Building is Named After a Philippine Artist
The “KL” stands for the surname of the artist it is named after, Purita Kalaw-Ledesma. She is the founder of the Kalaw-Ledesma Foundation, established in 1978. The foundation’s goal is the advancement of Philippine art and culture.
In 2015, KL Serviced Residences was inaugurated, serving as the home for the The Purita Kalaw-Ledesma Center, which houses 50 years’ worth of Philippine Modern art and art-related paraphernalia.
Its this artistic heritage that guides the interior designs of the hotel’s lobby and accommodations.
2. The Hotel is Made For Long Stays
Week-long business trips are just some of the occasions that KL Serviced Residences’ rooms are made for. This is why even the basic Studio rooms come with a kitchenette and a provision for a washing machine.
This way, guests can save up on food and laundry expenses. The hotel is also close to grocery stores like Rustan’s in Greenbelt 1, so supplies are well within reach.
3. Close to Parks and Recreational Centers
Looking for a breather after work, but not in the mood for bars? Parks are the best way to go.
Whether it’s jogging or simply relaxing and enjoying the fresh air, KL Serviced Residences is close to at least 3 parks within the Makati Central Business District.
These are the Washington SyCip Park, Salcedo Park, and the Legaspi Active Park. All of which feature open areas for exercise and places where you can sit back and maybe play with a cat or two.
