Got a long weekend but tired of the usual out-of-town trips? Then how about a staycation right in the Metro area? And if five-star hotels are beyond your budget, how about trying the Luxent Hotel Quezon City?
Luxent Hotel caters to all kinds of guests, from businesspeople to families. Staying in this hotel is like being in a one-stop place which combines a relaxing comfortable stay as well as pampering facilities, sumptuous food, and lively entertainment.
This four-star hotel is located on Timog Avenue, a stone’s throw away from the entertainment and dining hub along Tomas Morato Avenue. So while it’s easy to get to Tomas Morato, you won’t experience the traffic and noise that is ever-present on that strip.
From the hotel, you can easily get to several national landmarks and parks, like the Quezon Memorial Circle and Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center or go shopping malls in the nearby shopping malls.
But even if you don’t want to do any of these, you will find that staying at the Luxent alone will already fulfill your needs for a rewarding weekend R&R.
The hotel has 117 rooms on 16 floors. You can choose from Deluxe, Superior, Executive Suites, and Luxent Suite. The rooms are spacious with the smallest at 37 square meters. Each room varies with regard to number and size of beds as well as extra facilities (like dining area and kitchen for suites), but all have great standard amenities that spell comfort and luxury.
All rooms are spacious and equipped with amenities such as flat-screen TV with cable, DVD player, refrigerator, minibar, coffee and tea station, high speed wifi, safe, air-conditioning, executive desk, phone, and hair-dryer.
The bathroom is big and has complete sets of toiletries including shampoo, soap, toilet paper, and towels.
As soon as you check in, you are given your key cards and wifi username and password.
You also get complimentary breakfast buffet for two adults and two children below 5 years of age, bottled drinks, and use of the swimming pool and gym.
The highlight of any hotel accommodation is its food. Luxent Hotel has its Garden Cafe which offers buffet meals from sunup to sundown (6:00 AM to 10:00 PM).
Breakfast buffets (free for hotel guests) are served daily between 6:00 to 10:00 AM daily. The spread includes both local and international breakfast fare – several types of breads, deli meats, omelettes made to your specs, pizza, eggs any style, rice, congee, and Filipino favorites like longanisa and tapa. Coffee, tea, and juices are included.
The variety of choices for their lunch and dinner buffets are impressive. You can have your fill of a wide array of Filipino, Japanese, Asian, and Western fare, such as lechon, roast beef, tempura, sushi, chili crabs, salmon fillet, and dimsum. This same type of buffet would have cost double at five-star hotels. There is a salad bar and Mongolian station where you can create your own food combinations. To complement the meal, there is a drink station, dessert station, and ice cream station.

It’s open from morning to night, with live entertainment on weekends and selected nights. The bar serves a la carte food and drinks. It has a seating capacity of about 40 people.
The Luxent in Quezon City has both an adult infinity pool and a kids pool on the sixth floor. The adult pool resembles a huge aquarium with very thick transparent glass sides that is raised from the ground, so you can see the swimmers. During the night, the cool lighting makes it glow in different colors. The pool overlooks the city’s skyline so it’s quite a pleasant and unique swimming experience. The kiddie pool is located on the other side of the same floor.
To complete your R&R experience at the Luxent Hotel QC, try having a massage session at the hotel spa located on the second floor. Choose from various wellness services to satisfy your need for total relaxation and invigoration. Feel refreshed and rejuvenated, ready to face the demands of life after staycation.
Right beside the pool is the gym, fully equipped with cardio machines like treadmills, and weights of all kinds for different fitness needs, like core strengthening or muscle firming. You won’t need to miss your fitness and exercise routine while on staycation.
