As the hotel officially welcomes guests, SMHCC aims to further strengthen its foothold to provide more accommodation options in the “City of Smiles” and create an indelible mark in the city’s tourism sector.
“SMHCC not only seeks to add to the existing roster of brands under our wing. More importantly, we hope to provide sources of livelihood by opening up jobs for our countrymen especially in these difficult times. Being the first international hotel brand in Bacolod, Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod is yet another feather in SMHCC’s cap as it takes hospitality to the next level in this burgeoning city. Indeed, it is a clear testament of SMHCC’s optimism and confidence into the future, as we continue to expand our brand footprint across the Philippines,” said Ms. Peggy E. Angeles, SMHCC Executive Vice President.
