MANILA – Modern, bright, and ideally located - Red Planet Hotels announced that Red Planet Manila Bay opened its doors on 15 December 2017.

Red Planet Manila Bay, a 150-room property offering a stunning view of Manila Bay’s famous sunset, is conveniently located across the U.S Embassy in Ermita, a short distance from Ninoy Aquino International Airport. The hotel is well situated to serve Manila’s burgeoning inbound tourist arrivals seeking to take in the sights of Old Manila and Intramuros. Additionally, the hotel is proximate to several government agencies, corporate offices, and the Mall of Asia complex.

The hotel features the latest Red Planet Hotels standards – bright, modern, and innovative lobbies, with a bank of Apple computers for free guest-use, the so-called “Info Wall” containing everything guests need to know about what is happening around the hotels, and the “Photo-me” screen, which enables guests to take selfies to be instantly shared on Social Media platforms.

With the opening of Red Planet Manila Bay, the group now operates 11 hotels in the Philippines, 7 of which are located in Metro Manila. The brand’s ongoing expansion solidifies its position as the largest and fastest-growing value hotel chain in the country. Red Planet’s footprint will further increase with 2 additional hotels opening in Manila by February 2018.

“Our increasing presence in the Philippines solidifies Red Planet Hotels’ position as the unequivocal leader in the local value hotel sector, catering to the country’s increasing number of travellers, comprising both domestic and international markets” remarked Tim Hansing, Red Planet Chief Executive Officer on the occasion of the new hotel’s opening.

Red Planet currently owns and operates 27 hotels in 4 countries, with a focus on comfort, convenience, and style - all with an affordable price tag. The tech-savvy value hotel chain continues to pioneer with its best-in-class app featuring an “In-Stay Mode”, augmenting guests’ stay experience by enabling them to chat directly with the hotel front desk, look for local attractions, and enjoy discounts in more than 200 restaurants located near Red Planet Hotels.
