Hanky Lee

Hanky fashions himself an innkeeper instead of a hotelier, and aptly so; the entrepreneur behind the charming The Henry boutique hotels is more a caretaker of once-loved spaces than simply a manager of rooms and suites. Anyone who has stayed at either the Cebu or Manila properties will give testimony to the experience that Hanky works so hard to provide: one of intimacy and nostalgia –perfect for the old soul – and, at the same time, quarters for the young traveller eager to immerse himself in history and culture. Who would’ve known that Hanky is the same guy behind the gigantic Yellow Cab Pizza franchise? It certainly shows what great horizons can open up when you pursue your passions.

His passion: Making a positive difference in the lives of people who cross his path.
