PROPERTY developer Ayala Land Inc. (ALI) plans to launch five boutique-type hotels this year,including one in Cagayan de Oro City as disclosed by Jose Jalandoni, who heads the company’s hotel new business and hotel division.
He said the new hotels, which will offer an average 150 rooms will be catering mainly to business travelers. Aside from Cagayan de Oro, other sites are in Alabang, Davao, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City and North Triangle in Quezon City.
“We would like to build our hotels beside our malls. It creates a more powerful destination product,” he said, noting that the company plans to complete the five hotels within two years.
This disclosure is another good news…again I believe this will be in the Floirendo lot fronting Gaisano Mall as announced in previous press releases. Besides, the city;s hotel business is enjoying brisk sales even in times of crisis.
