Best Western creates ‘super hotel’ in Manila

Best Western International created a new "super hotel" in Manila with the merging of three existing Best Western hotels into one all-encompassing destination.

Located in the Makati business and entertainment district of the city, the new Best Western Plus Antel Hotel, the first Best Western Plus property in the Philippines, is the result of a merger among three of the company's Manila properties – Best Western Antel Spa Suites, Best Western The A. Venue Suites and Best Western Plus Serenity Suites.

The new Best Western Plus Antel Hotel will offer a total of 210 rooms, all of which are non-smoking and open onto balconies. A range of upscale in-room amenities includes kitchenettes with refrigerators and microwaves, as well as work desks and complimentary in-room internet access.

The expanded hotel also offers a broad selection of guest facilities, including eight function rooms, three lobby lounges, two restaurants, two swimming pools, two fitness centers, spa, games room and a children's playground.

Best Western Plus Antel Hotel will also have a ballroom and meeting rooms accommodating up to 120 delegates, backed up by a range of services such as wedding planning, equipment rental, secretarial services and free Internet connectivity in all areas of the hotel.

Following the merger of the three Makati City hotels, Best Western International now offers five distinct properties in the Philippines, offering close to 700 rooms and suites across four destinations. Best Western's expansion in the Philippines will continue at pace in the months and years ahead, with firm plans for the group's first ever properties in Cebu and Angeles City.
