Argyle Hotel Group takes on mid-scale sector growth in the Philippines

The 250-guestroom Manila Prince Argyle Hotel is slated for a late-2019 opening. (Argyle Hotel Group has followed up its recent plans to expand into Nepal with another Asia Pacific hotel property pipeline addition.)

After releasing details on its expansion into Nepal, Australia-based Argyle Hotel Group added the Manila Prince Argyle Hotel in Metro Manila, Philippines to its construction pipeline. The approximately 226,043-square-foot hotel has 250 guestrooms, and is set for completion in late 2019. 

The Manila Prince Argyle Hotel is the 119th hotel under Argyle Hotel Group's management, and will be located near Manila Ninoy Aquino airport. AHG maintained a focus on expanding the Asia Pacific region's mid-scale business hotel stock, specifically in Chinese second and third tier cities, bringing hotels to traditionally underserved regions.

“There’s a new hotel in the Argyle Hotel Group family every two weeks, and we’re anticipating accelerated growth next year as we continue to expand into more territories,” Kevin Zhang, CEO of Argyle Hotel Group, said in a statement.
Argyle Hotel Group is an exporter of hotel and resort management and asset management services throughout Asia-Pacific and operates seven brands: Argyle Grand Hotel, Argyle Resort, Argyle Hotel, Ausotel & Ausotel Smart, Argyle Suites, Argyle Boutique Hotel and Metro Hotels. AHG added more than 30 hotels in new territories to its portfolio in 2017, including locations in Nepal, Fiji and the Philippines, remaining on track to expand its presence throughout the Asia Pacific region.

“As we continue to grow and to strengthen our brand, we’ll also be increasing our presence in larger trade hubs and metro areas. We already serve some of the largest cities in Asia, with several hotels in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and now Manila,” Zhang said in a statement.

The Kathmandu Argyle Hotel, the group's first Nepalese property, is also set to open at the end of 2019.
