Araneta City launches ibis Styles Hotel

Araneta City recently launched the first ibis hotel brand in the country with a ceremonial topping-off of the ibis Styles Hotel.

The ibis Hotel brand was developed by the hospitality company Accor, based in France, as an affordable yet creative brand for both leisure and business travelers. The Araneta Group brings the brand to the Philippines via a 15-storey hotel along General Roxas Avenue, one of the latest additions to Araneta City.

Present at the topping off ceremony (seen in photo) were Araneta City’s management consultant Mr. Rowell Recinto; principal design consultant Arch. Sudhakar Thakurdesai; Megawide Construction Corporation chairman and CEO Engr. Edgar Saavedra; AVP for operations Engr. Romeo Furigay; and deputy head for construction Engr. Frederick Tan. Representing Accor were Emmanuel Marion, vice president of operations for midscale and economy brands in Cambodia; Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, the Philippines and the Maldives and Roger Huet, director of design and technical services for South East and North Asia.

Quality accommodation 

The ibis Styles Hotel will house 286  rooms, with 22 guestrooms available per floor. The Hotel will also provide six function rooms to cater for meetings and online conferences. 

An overhanging pool, furnished with a glass bottom, will be the highlight of the roof deck bar overlooking the Metro Manila skyline. Facing west, the pool will provide a unique view of Manila Bay’s sunset. 

The ibis Styles Hotel will have an all-day dining restaurant and patisserie which will be connected to The New Gateway. 

All strategically situated within the Gateway Square, these six structures will be interconnected with other developments in the Araneta City via skybridges and pedestrian malls to offer a complete urban experience – lodging, parking, shopping, dining, and entertainment.
