New Best Western Hotel Opening in Angeles
A Best Western Premier is expected to open its doors in 2014, will be a brand new luxury hotel offering a range of high-end facilities to the rapidly increasing number of domestic and international travelers visiting this thriving city.
As a Best Western Premier hotel – the most luxurious of Best Western’s three unique products – the new Casa Verde will feature luxury amenities, delivered with style and personalized service. The hotel’s 78 rooms will all offer LCD flat screen televisions, complimentary wireless internet access and luxury products, while hotel facilities will include an international all-day dining restaurant and a swimming pool.
Located in Central Luzon, close to Manila, Angeles is served by Clark’s Diosdado Macapagal International Airport – home to the Philippines’ largest airline, Cebu Pacific, and brand new low-cost carrier AirAsia Philippines. SEAIR also connects Clark to a range of international destinations, including Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong.
The airport is also on the cusp of a major expansion plan, which is projected to see it handle enormous number of passengers per year.
Such growth will lead to a huge increase in demand for hotel rooms in Angeles, and the Casa Verde will be joining the Best Western Premier hotel collection, the first stage in Best Western’s plan to satisfy the demand.
“The potential for Angeles as a tourism destination is enormous,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western International’s Vice President International Operations – Asia & the Middle East. “The infrastructure developments being planned for the city, and nearby Clark airport, are truly staggering, even by the standards of 21st Century Asia”.
“The recent arrival of AirAsia Philippines, as well as the presence of Cebu Pacific, SEAIR, AirPhil Express and international carriers such as Jin Air and Dragonair, is testament to the growth of the country. In the years to come, Angeles will become an increasingly important regional hub for business, industry, aviation and tourism, and we are delighted to be at the forefront of this development,” Mr. de Souza added.
Best Western currently operates six hotels in the Philippines – five in Manila and one in Boracay – offering a total of 610 rooms. Also, a 80-room hotel is under development in Cebu.
