PROPERTY giant Megaworld Corp. sees Iloilo soon becoming a top destination for meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE) in the country with two of its award-winning hotel developments in the area.
In a statement, Megaworld said two of its Iloilo-based hotels have already received recognition as top hotel developments in the country, namely the upcoming Marriott
Courtyard Hotel located within the Iloilo Business Park and Richmonde Hotel in Iloilo.
The 15-storey Marriott Courtyard Hotel recently received two ‘Highly Commended’ awards for Best Hotel Development and Best Hotel Interior Design at the 2016 Philippine Property Awards.
The said hotel, which will rise beside the iconic Iloilo Convention Center, will be situated within Megaworld’s 72-hectare urban township development in Mandurria district and will offer a total of 320 rooms.
Meanwhile, the 149-room Richmonde Hotel Iloilo also received the ‘Highly Commended’ awards for Best Hotel Interior Design at last year’s Philippine Property Awards.
Megaworld Senior Vice President Jericho Go said the recognition the hotels have received shows how the company has given the city first-class hotels.
“Having two award-winning hotels in Iloilo Business Park is a testament of how Megaworld has alleviated the standards of hotel lifestyle in Iloilo City,” Go said “This is a first-class city that deserves first-class hotels.”
Megaworld said it has spent more than P2 billion for the development of the two hotels.
“Iloilo City is now ready to host huge local and international conventions and events because these two award-winning hotels sandwiching the Iloilo Convention Center will be able to provide the amenities and services that visitors and guests deserve. We see Iloilo City as the rising MICE destination in the country,” Go concluded.
