PH first ibis Styles Hotel tops off


    Araneta City officially welcomed the first ibis Hotel brand in the country with a ceremonial topping-off of the ibis Styles Hotel last January 20.

    The ibis Hotel brand was developed by the international 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 on General Roxas avenue.

    The ibis Styles Hotel will house 286 comfortable and spacious rooms, with 22 guestrooms available per floor. Each of these rooms has Styles’ signature and relaxing Sweet Bed, a trademark of the ibis brand.

    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.

    This will also serve as an alternative meeting place or workplace.

    The ibis Styles Hotel’s design philosophy will reflect the soul and heritage of its location.

    The property will showcase the legacy of the country’s sports and entertainment mecca that is the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    Interiors of the hotel will feature designs based on historical events in the coliseum such as the 1975 Thrilla in Manila, Binibining Pilipinas pageants, and some unforgettable sports and music events.

    The ibis Styles Hotel will be constructed above the much-awaited expansion of the Gateway Mall, the New Gateway, conveniently accessible from EDSA and Aurora and P. Tuazon Boulevards in Quezon City.
