SM Group has again forged partnership with Carlson as the company plans to expands its hotel business, this time in Davao. The company will be constructing a 200-room hotel worth Php 750 million and will feature amenities like restaurant, meeting rooms, swimming pool and a gym.

SM Hotels and Conventions Corp, a wholly owned subsidiary SM Investments Corp. had signed a contract with Carlson, a global hospitality and travel company for the establishment of a Park Inn by Radisson hotel in Davao. Radisson will be handling the management and operations of the hotel. One completed, the hotel will be the very first hotel by Radisson in the Asia Pacific region that will carry the Park Inn brand name.

Park Inn Hotel Radisson has received the highest rank in guest satisfaction index in Europe by J.D. Powers and Associates in 2009. It is also the largest mid-market brand for hotels under development in Europe.

The hotel will be situated within the mixed-use development project of SM Prime Holdings, Inc. in Lanang. The complex will also feature a shopping mall and a convention center. The construction of the hotel is expected to begin in the third quarter of this year and is scheduled to be completed by 2013.

The company has chosen Davao as their area of expansion due its ideal location, dynamic economy, vibrant population, and efficient infrastructure such as international airport and seaport. The hotel project is another addition to the growing hotel and hospitality business in Davao. On the other hand, Ayala is also building a boutique hotel inside Abreeza mixed-use complex. This new development will certainly improve Davao’s image as a world-class tourist destination.

In September last year, SM Hotels and Conventions Corp. opened a 400-room Radisson Blu Hotel in Cebu, the first Radisson Blue Hotel in the Asia Pacific. The hotel is run and managed by Carlson.
