Hoteliers in Clark, Angeles City, City of San Fernando, Pampanga, Tarlac, and Subic, Zambales have rallied behind the Department of Tourism (DoT) to extend the best in Filipino hospitality to all athletes and officials participating in the South East Asian Games (SEAG).
More than 50 Clark and Subic hotel operators assured the DoT and the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee (PHISGOC) close coordination to extend best practices in Filipino hospitality and anticipate the needs of all its guests.
The hotel operators agreed to double up their efforts to help in monitoring arrivals, food, and laundry, and other needs.
Operators of hotels where athletes are billeted have also agreed to share real-time updates on their social media sites in an effort to keep the public abreast of the hosting situation.
The 30th SEA Games is expected to require a total of 137,563 room nights to hotels across the four sporting hubs, namely Manila, Southern Luzon, and La Union, Clark, and Subic, with delegates staying from November 19 through December 12.
The Clark and Subic meetings came on the heels of the emergency meeting between the DoT and various hotels in Metro Manila where the Tourism department gave the directive to ensure that the Filipino brand of hospitality is exercised to the maximum capacity of hotels’ resources and capabilities.
Athletes from 11 nations are vying for the SEA Games medal honors as the Philippines hosts the SEA Games which officially starts November 30 until December 11.
SEND cheers in the comments below to our Philippine hoteliers for stepping up their game for the country’s hosting of the SEA Games!
