The midscale Best Western The Mint Hotel, which opens this month, will be located in the Balibago tourist area of the city, close to the city’s nightlife. The eight-story hotel offers 52 rooms all including flat-screen HD TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. The café-restaurant offers free 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’s Vice President of International Operations for 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,” he added.
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.
