Go Hotels ramps up expansion, total rooms to exceed 1,200

Go Hotels, the value hotel chain of Robinsons Land Corporation, is ramping up its expansion program with the planned opening of three new branches to bring the total number of rooms in the chain to over 1,200.

“We are building strategically-located branches in the Ortigas central business district, in Iloilo and in Butuan,” said Go Hotels general manager Elizabeth D. Gregorio.

She added that “these are exciting times for the Philippine tourism as the hospitality business open more outlets, especially in Metro Manila, in anticipation of the arrival of more tourists because of the government’s focus on the industry.”

Gregorio noted that Go Hotels’ expansion is carefully carried out with the needs of travellers as its top priority. Thus, Go Hotels Iloilo and Butuan are located within a Robinsons Malls complex while the Ortigas branch is just a couple of minutes walk or stone’s throw away from Robinsons Galleria.

“Go Hotels Ortigas Center will serve the growing number of business travellers and tourists visiting the central business district and the malls in the area,” said Gregorio.

On the other hand, the Iloilo branch beefs-up the chain’s presence in the Visayas which already has branches in Bacolod, Dumaguete, and in Tacloban while the Butuan branch will serve businessmen going to the bustling CARRAGA regional center.

All three new branches will have restaurants, spa services, transport service and convenience stores to cater to the needs and comfort of guests.

Go Hotels Ortigas Center will have 198 rooms opening this quarter while the Butuan branch will have 102 rooms available in the fourth quarter of 2014.

The Iloilo branch will open in the first quarter of next year with 167 hotel rooms — making it the chain’s biggest branch outside Metro Manila. It will also have the biggest conference room among all Go Hotels branches with a maximum capacity of 100 persons.

This brings the total number of rooms for the Go Hotels chain to over 1,200 as there are already over 700 rooms now available in the six existing branches: EDSA-Mandaluyong, Tacloban, Dumaguete, Bacolod, Puerto Princesa and Otis-Manila.

“We will be offering special rates to guests as a pre-opening treat. All they need is to check our online booking system at gohotels.ph,” Gregorio said.
