Hospitality International Inc to open 3 properties this year

HOTEL management company Hospitality International Inc Philippines (HII) is scaling up across the country, having opened two boutique properties recently with a third on the way.

According to Peter Stevens, executive director of HII: “Guests want to feel at home and they want to be recognised. A small boutique hotel can really provide that.”

In January, HII launched the 38-room The Henry in Cebu, offering short-, medium- and long-term stay options. Hanky Lee, chairman of the The Henry, said: “There are personal touches in the branding (of The Henry) – the sign, the font, the toiletries. They look small and simple but they’re really thought out.”

This was quickly followed by the opening of the 169-room Y2 Residence Hotel on Makati Avenue as part of the Makati’s room boom (TTG Asia e-Daily, February 20, 2014).

The property boasts an Asian-inspired black-and-white design, large rooms and flexible long-stay options for business and leisure travellers, said Philippe Bartholomi, the general manager of Y2 Residence Hotel.

The Henry’s sister property, the 33-room The Henry Manila, will come up in the FB Harrison Area near Mall of Asia by December 2014. Lee said: “The charm of it is that it’s a compound of post-war houses.”

HII’s portfolio, including the latest The Henry Manila, encompasses five boutique hotels and five residence hotels, all under different brands.
