Red Planet, the Asian budget hotel operator, is investing PHP80 million (US$1.6m) in the upgrade of multiple properties in the Philippines.
The project includes the revamp of the façades and lobbies at all Red Planet hotels in Manila and Cebu. This will include a new colour scheme, signage, Mac workstations in the lobbies and remodelled front desks aimed at reducing waiting times. In addition, the hotels’ Wi-Fi speed has been increased.
“With this investment into the physical product… Red Planet has clearly positioned itself as the leading hotel chain in the Philippines. We want our hotel guests to realise that, when staying at Red Planet, it is the best experience and value proposition available in the market,” said Red Planet’s country head for the Philippines, Sahlee Zaldivia.
Having opened its first hotels in the Philippines in 2012, Red Planet now owns and operates 10 hotels in the country, including five in Manila and one in Cebu. The company also has a further eight properties under development across the Philippine archipelago.
