SM Brings Hilton Conrad Hotel and Resort to PH
The first luxury Conrad Hotel in the country will soon rise at the Mall of Asia complex in Pasay City.
SM Hotels and Conventions Inc., a unit of SM Investments Corp., has signed an agreement with Hilton Worldwide for the latter to manage the country’s first Conrad Hotel. Conrad Hotels & Resorts is Hilton Worldwide’s global luxury brand.
“We are very happy to formalize our partnership with Hilton Worldwide as it combines their expertise of a global, award-winning hospitality company with SM’s strong local market expertise. Given Conrad Manila’s excellent accessibility to and from all areas of Manila, we are confident that it will deliver best-in-class service to capitalize on strong demand from both domestic and international business and leisure travellers,” Elizabeth T. Sy, President of Hotels and Conventions Corporation said, in a statement.
The 350-room luxury hotel, located beside the Mall of Asia and adjacent to the SMX Convention Center, is scheduled to open in mid-2015. The 8-storey Conrad Manila will have two levels of retail and entertainment facilities, as well as an all-day dining restaurant, two specialty restaurants, a bar and lobby lounge.
