All properties under the SM Hotels and Conventions Corp (SMHCC) portfolio have obtained the Department of Tourism Safety Seal.
The certification is given to accommodation establishments that have faithfully complied with the Minimum Public Health Standards (MPHS) set by the government and have integrated StaySafe.ph into their contact tracing.
Taal Vista Hotel, Pico Sands Hotel, Conrad Manila, Radisson Blu Cebu, Park Inn by Radisson Hotels (North Edsa, Clark, Iloilo, Bacolod, Davao), and SMX Convention Centers (Manila, SM Aura, and Davao) have successfully complied with and passed the Safety Seal Certification Program led by the DOT and the departments of Trade, Interior, Health, and Labor.
Complementing DOT’s Safety Seal, Radisson Blu Cebu, Park Inn by Radisson Davao, and Park Inn by Radisson Iloilo have likewise been conferred the world’s first-ever global safety and hygiene seal, the Safe Travel Stamp, issued by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) in recognition of the hotels’ compliance with WTTC’s safe travel protocols.
“The DOT’s Safety Seal literally serves as a stamp of approval, giving our guests the assurance that they need when staying in our properties, and is a testament to SMHCC’s uncompromising health and safety standards,” said Peggy Angeles, SMHCC Executive Vice President.
“Strengthened by our very own ‘SustainablySafe’ Program, we have ably primed our properties for the new normal and gained our guests’ confidence, making their safety our topmost priority,” she added.
