BANGKOK, 24 July 2017: Best Western Hotels & Resorts is expanding its presence in the Philippines with its latest addition, Best Western Bendix Hotel, in San Fernando City, Pampanga, often called the country’s culinary capital.

The property is located on the McArthur Highway, a short 15-minute drive from Clark International Airport, or a 45- minute drive from Manila.

Best Western said the property was well-connected and convenient for both business and leisure travellers.

It is also the first “green hotel” in San Fernando, meaning it has been constructed using environmentally-friendly building methods and will operate in an energy-efficient manner.

“With its large domestic population, rising affluence and increasing popularity as an international tourist destination, the Philippines is an incredibly important market for Best Western,” said Best Western’s managing director of international operations – Asia, Olivier Berrivin.

“In addition to our existing hotels and resorts in key markets like Manila, Cebu and Boracay, we have recently introduced our high-quality international hotels to new markets such as Subic Bay and Puerto Princesa. Now, I am delighted to announce Best Western’s entry into San Fernando – the Philippines’ gastronomic capital and an important regional market.”

The Best Western Bendix Hotel features 45 rooms, all of which come equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs with cable channels and work space.

Guests can enjoy local and international cuisine in the hotel’s restaurant, which showcases a selection of popular dishes that originate in Pampanga.

There is also a casual coffee shop with indoor and al fresco seating, making it the perfect place to unwind during the day.

The Best Western Bendix Hotel also offers a choice of three different function rooms, each of which host up to 120 guests for meetings and seminars. And for large corporate events, weddings and gala dinners, the 332m² Giant Lantern Ballroom can accommodate up to 300 people.

Following the opening of the new property 21 July, Best Western now operates a portfolio of eight hotels across the Philippines, making it one of the largest international hotel groups in the country. This portfolio covers a series of business and leisure destinations including Manila, Makati City, Boracay, Cebu City, Puerto Princesa, Subic Bay and now San Fernando.
