A 200 bedroom full-service accommodation will be developed at Camp John Hay in Baguio City by Filinvest Hospitality Corp. (FEHC), the wholly owned subsidiary of Filinvest Development Corp. (FDC).
The hotel is a part of the 25-year lease deal won by the FDC and John Hay Management Corp, the Conversion and Development Authority. It is situated at the heart of Camp John Hay, on a 5,700 square meter site.
FDC claimed that the hotel would enhance the Group’s footprint in Northern Luzon and is the first dual property brand under the Graphic and Quest names. In three to four years it is expected to run.
“We are thankful for Filinvest’s confidence from both JHMC and BCDA. Baguio City was always one of the top targets for the organization as the hub of the Cordillera Zone,” said Fancis Gotianun, FHC SVP.
Gotianun said that tourism now has signs of recovery with quarantine relief in the region. “This year will be tough, but we keep moving forward and looking forward to a promising future,” he said.
According to Gotianun, because of its special atmosphere, history, touristic attractions and accessibility, Baguio is still a significant tourist and business destination.
“Through its investment in global hospitality creation, FHC contributes to promoting the recovery and growth of Baguio’s tourism. We hope that we can be part of the group of Baguio and become his preference hotel,” Gotianun said.
In addition, with the conclusion of the Tarlac-Pangasinan Expressway ( TPLEX), Gotianun said that the travel time was cut drastically and would be reduced further after the completion of various infrastructure projects. “FHC pledge its investment in foreign hospitality creation to promote the recovery and growth of tourism in Baguio. We look forward to entering the group of Baguio and being their favorite hotel,” said Gotianun.
