Megaworld Corp. opened its newest hotel, Hotel Lucky Chinatown in Binondo, Manila.
Megaworld said in a statement the 93-room Hotel Lucky Chinatown is the eighth hotel property to open under its four home-grown hotel brands that include Richmonde, Belmont, Savoy and Twin Lakes.
The P750-million Hotel Lucky Chinatown is directly connected to Lucky Chinatown Mall, which is also owned by Megaworld.
“We take great pride in continuing to bring more excitement here in the ‘world’s oldest Chinatown’ with the opening of Hotel Lucky Chinatown. With the hotel directly connected to Manila Chinatown’s biggest mall, guests will be able to savor the distinct, dynamic vibe of the Chinatown culture as they enjoy the sights and sounds of this bustling hub,” said Hotel Lucky Chinatown resident manager Jeremy Russell Go.
Go said the Hotel Lucky Chinatown would target Chinese travelers and tourists seeking to explore Chinatown in Binondo.
Go said the standard room would have an introductory price of P3,188 while executive suites were to be offered at P5,888. The promotional rate is good until December 2019.
The hotel along Reina Regente Street has its own all-day dining restaurant, the Café de Chinatown, to be managed and operated by the Raintree Group of Companies, the company that owns and operates Museum Café and Terraz in Makati, and Chelsea Kitchen.
The hotel will also have a spacious, high-ceiling grand ballroom that can accommodate up to 350 guests in banquet setting, and can be divided into three smaller ballrooms. It also has a boardroom and three meeting rooms for smaller groups.
“Our idea is to blend modernity with Binondo’s heritage. While Hotel Lucky Chinatown features a modern contemporary design, the moment our guests get out of the hotel, they will feel the culture that is truly Chinatown. We want to provide that distinction so the experience becomes richer,” Go said.
Hotel Lucky Chinatown is strategically located near Manila’s historic and cultural sites such as Intramuros, Manila City Hall, and the National Museum. It is just around 40 minutes away from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Resorts World Manila, and the Makati Central Business District, and 30 minutes from the bustling Entertainment City and Manila Bay area.
