Siglo Suites is Eco-Friendly

January 18, 2018

Dear Valued Siglo Prestige Registrant,

We are switching off air conditioners and lights as part of our responsibility in caring for the environment. Beginning 22 January 2018, all air conditioners and lights in Siglo units will remain off prior to check-in of our guests. We will only, however, leave one (1) hallway light switched on and most appliances unplugged excluding refrigerator, water heater, cable connections and television sets.

We are also encouraging our guests to do the same by reminding them to flip the switches and taps off when electricity and water are not in use, most especially when they are stepping out of the unit. This campaign also extends to the conscious use of towels and linens during guest’s stay. Most importantly, Siglo units are now a no smoking zone which includes building corridors.

For everyone’s awareness, we will be leaving tent cards in units for these worthwhile causes. Let’s do our share to care for our environment.

New Cut-off Period and Submission of Statement of Account (SOA)

November 23, 2017

We would like to inform you of our Siglo Accounting's new cut-off period and submission of Statement of Account (SOA) being implemented this July 2017. As a result of these changes, the period covered for July 2017 will be longer but this will normalize by August 2017.



Revenue remittance still remains on quarterly basis, ten (10) business days after submission of SOA.

This is our way of keeping our promise of making your Century investments work for you as our partner in Siglo. Thank you for being our Siglo Suites Prestige registered partner.

Azure Urban Resort amenities fee

April 21, 2017

Dear Valued Siglo Prestige Registrant,

Given the announcement recently made by the Azure Urban Resort Residences Condominium Corporation about charging a Php 500.00 amenities per guest per night to all short-term lease guests. Siglo has decided to protect your investment from the significant rate hike necessary to absorb this additional cost.

To be clear, Siglo-Prestige registered units are not exempt from the new amenities fee. For the short- to medium- term. Siglo will fully Subsidize the amenities fee for all guests of Siglo Prestige registrants in order for your lease rates and margins to be unaffected. You guests will continue to enjoy the various amenities offered in Azure without the added fee. Future reduction in our subsidy will be gradual, with an eye towards protecting your rental income and competitive advantage.

This is our way of keeping our promise of making your Century investments work for you as our partner in Siglo. Thank you for being our Siglo Suites Prestige registered partner.

Sincerely,


PAUL PATRICK M. CARAGUE

Value-for-money investment plans to enhance guests’ experience.

December 1, 2016

To our valued unit owners,

Thank you for putting your trust in us! As Siglo embarks on its second year of operations, we’d like to look back on the many challenges we faced, and the many lessons we’ve learned this past year, as well as share with you the exciting plans we’ve lined up for the next twelve months.

This past year was a time of tremendous growth for independent operators of short term leasing, both in Century City, and Azure Urban Resort Residences. On average, Azure is now visited by about 2000 guests, and Century City by about 900 business travelers weekly. The hotel industry has also become significantly more competitive, with hotel rates dropping to half their former prices. We sit and compete right in the center of these two.

We at Siglo Suites don’t expect any profit this year or next; but instead, we’re continuing to plow back our revenues in investments that will enhance your guests’ experience, value-for-money, and ultimately your unit’s occupancy rates. A few of the investments planned for this coming year include:

  • ☑    Marketing investments to promote Siglo Prestige units across various marketing events, digital & print media, billboards, and inflight magazines;
  • ☑    Investments in our website, booking engine, and smart-pricing technology exclusively for Siglo Prestige units. Computers will be spread across the lobbies of Century Properties projects, where visitors may view pictures and prices of available Siglo Prestige units for rent on a real-time basis;
  • ☑    Enhancing our guest registrations process and systems to help the Condo Corps in managing the overall safety and security of the units and their occupants;
  • ☑    Siglo Prestige units already enjoy the exclusive privilege of being booked through our partnerships with mainstream online travel agencies like Expedia, Agoda, TripAdvisor, and Booking.com. On top of our existing partnerships with eight online travel agencies, we expect to forge new partnerships with more of them these coming months;
  • ☑    Increased staffing of our business development professionals to forge and maintain partnerships with various corporate clients;
  • ☑    New Business Centers equipped with computers and printers in Azure, Gramercy, Knightsbridge, and Milano, free to use by Siglo Prestige unit owners and their guests;
  • ☑    Enhanced amenities like tote bags, umbrellas, note pads, and vanity kits;
  • ☑    Airport and CBD shuttle service; and
  • ☑    Free continental buffet breakfast for Siglo Prestige guests, and available F&B room service.

Being a pioneer in this type of service, we’ve had a few ups and downs, but we also continue to learn and improve along the way. Our motives are not driven to make Siglo Suites more profitable, but rather to make Century Properties buyers happy with their investments, which hopefully translates to referrals and more sales in Century’s current and future projects – this is what makes good business sense after all!

We look forward to working more with you this coming year, and remain excited at making your investments work for you!

Sincerely,


PAUL PATRICK M. CARAGUE
