Best Western to Open First SureStay Hotel in Angeles City, Philippines in 2019

Angeles City (Philippines) – November 29, 2018 (travelindex) – Best Western Hotels and Resorts will open its first SureStay hotel in The Philippines in the second quarter of 2019, inviting the country to experience one of the newest hotel brands in the industry – the SureStay Hotel Group.

Located in the center of Angeles City, a vibrant tourist destination near the country’s capital of Manila, the SureStay Plus by Best Western Regency Angeles City Clark will provide guests with the amenities today’s travelers have come to expect. SureStay’s service promise reflects the brand and the hotel’s commitment to providing quality service and value to its guests: “If something goes wrong, we will make it right. You should feel sure about your stay.”

“The SureStay Hotel Group is poised for success in The Philippines,” commented Ron Pohl, Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer for Best Western Hotels & Resorts. “Angeles City is the ideal location for our first SureStay property in The Philippines—the bustling city has become a haven for domestic travelers from nearby Manila, while the rapid expansion of Clark International Airport makes the city an increasingly popular destination for international visitors.”

The hotel will feature 56 well-appointed guest rooms with an impressive array of amenities, including an outdoor pool, restaurant, café, and business services, all at an attractive price point.

Perfectly located on Surla Street, a main thoroughfare in downtown Angeles City, the property’s setting is ideal for guests looking to be in the heart of the city. Guests will be able to explore the local area with the city’s many attractions available within a short walk of the hotel, including the SM City Clark mall, PAGCOR casino and Fields Avenue “walking street”. The property will be easily accessible via Clark International Airport which offers direct connections to major international cities including Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Dubai, Seoul and Taipei.

“With its combination of international midscale accommodation, excellent service and value-for-money, SureStay Hotel Group is perfectly suited to the Philippines,” added Olivier Berrivin, Best Western’s Managing Director of International Operations – Asia. “Angeles City offers a unique and enticing destination for the first SureStay property in Philippines, and the city’s unique vibrancy complements the modern design offered by the SureStay Hotel Group, providing guests with an experience they can count on.”

Developed by Tambayan Hospitality Group Inc., SureStay Plus by Best Western Regency Angeles City Clark will be operated under a franchise agreement with SureStay Hotel Group and Best Western. The signing ceremony was attended by Abdul S. Jamal, Chairman of Tambayan Hospitality, and Olivier Berrivin, Best Western’s Managing Director of International Operations – Asia.
