Go Hotels among Dumaguete’s top 5 hotels
MANILA, Philippines - After starting operations in 2012, Go Hotels has already made its mark as one of the best hotels in Dumaguete City.
Trip Advisor, regarded the "largest online travel community" and a source of resort and hotel reviews (with over 75 million monthly reviews), ranked Go Hotels as the 4th out of 21 premium hotels in the bustling capital of Negros Oriental this 2013.
With its distinct goal of providing a convenient and comfortable "Place for Every Juan" without the expensive price tag, Go Hotels has been getting rave reviews from travelers all over the country.
Clients cite the staff's friendliness, the hotel's premium facilities, and the establishment's strategic location as key factors on why Go Hotels is top of mind.
"(Go Hotels Dumaguete) just opened in March 2012 but we have already been recognized as one of the top hotels here in this gentle city. We're determined to maintain and even improve that ranking," Go Hotels Dumaguete branch manager Mark Andonni Calumpang told Rappler.
"We want to make our mark especially here in Dumaguete with the unique promos that we offer," he added.
The Dumaguete branch is one of the 5 operational Go Hotels branches around the country. Other branches include Mandaluyong, Puerto Princesa, Tacloban, and Bacolod.
The 'innovative' difference
With the surge in tourism and economic confidence and activity in the country, the hotel industry is looking at a bright future.
The country grew 6.6% in 2012, one of the fastest growing economies in Asia, and hosted around 4.3 million international tourists in the same year.
The Philippine government is currently targeting 10 million international tourists by 2016. With more tourists visiting, there will be more demand for hotels and accommodation establishments.
Meeting this demand is Go Hotels' main mission, but it does not stop there. They have more in store for every client:
- Windsor beds
- LCD cable TV
- Safety and security
- Fun vibe
- Super shower
- Free wi-Fi
- Transport access
- Service plus
Go Hotels also offers a unique reservation scheme: just like promos and discounts in airline tickets, they also offer the "book early, pay less" scheme.
Customers can book hotel rooms as early as January for a December stay. The earlier a customer books a room, the lower the rate will be.
This is aside from the usual walk-in customers wherein the rate is significantly higher. In Go Hotels, however, walk-in rates will not burn a hole in your wallet. Rates range from P888 to about P2,388.
"This is what makes Go Hotels, either in Dumaguete or in any other part of the country, unique. Our rates are low but the services are premium," Calumpang said.
Calumpang added that Go Hotels is currently looking at smart travelers and backpackers as their main market but said the hotel is open to just about anyone who wants to avail of their service.
With 5 branches already operating around the country, Robinsons Land is targeting to open 3 more by the end of 2013.
They are looking to offer the same comfortable and convenient "Place for Every Juan" in Otis-Manila, Ortigas Center, and Iloilo.
This is on top of the company's plans to open over 30 branches in the next 5 years to reach out to more Filipinos and tourists who want to experience the luxurious hotel experience without the 5-star hotel price. - Rappler.com
