There are 4 types of rooms you can choose from: Executive Suite, 1 Bedroom Suite, Studio Room with Twin Beds and Studio Room with Queen Sized Beds.The rooms, with their “industrial-chic” design, are airy and bright.Outfitted with modern amenities such as free WiFi, Bluetooth speakers and alarm clock, and a 43-inch smart TV, it makes it possible for corporate travelers to work (and play) from their home-away-from-home.

Both studio and one-bedroom configurations have kitchens — complete with glass top stoves, microwave, and refrigerator— for those on an extended stay or simply want that option to prepare their own meals. Since it is a serviced apartment, they also offer daily housekeeping, laundry and transport services for guests.  It’s also so good to note that they have eco-friendly initiatives such as replacing the complimentary water bottles with Hiidrate – a glass bottle that is refilled daily.and by also lessening the amount of packaging by having their shampoo, conditioner and bath soap in refillable bottles too!

Mooi & Co. is a line of bathroom amenities made exclusively for HII. It uses stone paper packaging that is 100% recyclable & 100% tree-free. Yay! It’s also printed with soy ink and its contents are partially biodegradable. More about HII and their environment-friendly initiatives here: neighborhood cafe Little Flour is conveniently located in the ground floor of the building and will be serving the hotel guests their complimentary breakfast and hosts The Sphere’s in-room dining too. How convenient! Aside from Little Flour, The Stratosphere lobby is home to a number of F & B establishments, such as Starbucks Reserve (the lobby smells like coffee sometimes and we love it!), Datong Ice House (the other side of the lobby smells like milk tea and it’s all good! Oh, try their egg waffles and HK-style Milk Tea!), and Tea 18 (Try out the original Taiwanese Milk Tea) among others. The building also has a grocery store on the ground floor, 3 convenience stores around it, a supermarket around the block and is serviced by a lot of restaurant deliveries. You’ll never go hungry in this area that’s for sure.
While it might be difficult to leave those pristine sheets, The Sphere’s common amenities on the 9th and 10th floors are there to entice one to get out of bed. The indoor pool and deck are a welcome sight on a warm day. The fitness center is equipped with the basics for those who need their daily dose of endorphins. For events, the Apollo function room can be divided into three for smaller gatherings, or rented as a whole. The floor to ceiling windows perfectly frame the Makati cityscape which will surely provide a stunning backdrop to any event.In addition to the comfortable accommodations and well-conceived amenities, The Sphere’s central location is one of the best in the city. You’re literally a few steps away from some of the top-rated restaurants in town. Take Apartment 1B for example, that’s just behind the Stratosphere. Dinner date soon then?Just a stone throw away from verdant parks, financial institutions, posh residential towers, world-class shopping centers, and dining establishments— its Valero Street address is ideal for those looking for quick access to the best Makati has to offer.

Operations Manager Alec Yatco imparts, “The Sphere was conceived with the corporate travelers in mind who want to be within walking distance of their work place. However, Salcedo Village becomes a lively residential area especially with the Salcedo Saturday Market during the weekends, making the hotel also ideal for family staycations. Plus, our beautiful indoor pool with its adjacent resto/bar will surely be a popular draw for those who wish to unwind.”Yatco is part of the dedicated team of HII that manages The Sphere, as well as the residential units of The Stratosphere Building. The Filipino-owned company is celebrating its 20th year operating various properties in the Philippines, over 20 of them all over the country.
