Best Western International is bringing its world renowned brand to Angeles City; one of the Philippines' fastest-growing destinations.
BANGKOK – The Mint Hotel will become the first internationally-branded hotel in Angeles City, north of Manila. The property is bringing a new level of comfort, convenience and world-class service to the city’s hospitality sector. And with the nearby Diosdado Macapagal International Airport at Clark becoming a key international hub, the hotel is sure to attract a growing number of both international and domestic visitors.
Located on Fields Avenue, in the heart of the Balibago tourist district, Best Western The Mint Hotel offers the ideal location from which to explore this vibrant city’s exciting nightlife. The eight-story hotel offers 52 comfortable, well-appointed rooms all including flat-screen HD TVs with cable channels, minibars, work desks and complimentary Wi-Fi. The café-restaurant offers complimentary buffet breakfast while other hotel facilities include a laundry and car rental services.
“We are very excited about bringing our world famous brand to Angeles – the Philippines’ most up-and-coming entertainment capital,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western International’s Vice President International Operations – Asia & the Middle East.
“The potential for Angeles as a destination is enormous and the recent arrival of AirAsia Philippines, as well as the presence of Cebu Pacific, SEAIR, AirPhil Express and other international carriers at Clark airport is testament to the growth of the area. As the first international hotel chain in the city, we are delighted to be at the forefront of this development,” Mr. de Souza added.
Located in Central Luzon, close to Manila, Angeles City has direct air links to most major Asian hubs including Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur.
Best Western currently operates five hotels in the Philippines, but this portfolio is expected to more than double to 12 properties by the beginning of 2014.
