News about Bellevue coming to Cagayan de Oro became silent for several months. But in the 30th Anniversary issue of Expat Travel & Lifestyle Magazine, Bellevue GM Patrick Chan stated that their B Hotel brand will soon hit Cagayan de Oro.
The magazine featured Chan on building a Filipino hotel brand from scratch, setting standards from nothing, and competing globally.
The whole story is on page 100 and 101 of Expat Magazine’s Vol. 5 No. 3 2011 Issue.
I have encircled the portion of the article below which got my interest. You can click the image for larger view but still it might be too small to read.
I’ve retyped it below.
“And no, it will not stop with Bohol. Bellevue will soon hit Cagayan de Oro, General Santos, Cebu and Palawan. The B Hotel brand will also reach other cities in the country. All these are meant to lay the groundwork for even bigger things.”
Still, we don’t know where in Cagayan de Oro. But GM Chan is consistent in stating that they will establish their brand in the city.
