The things that make Park Inn by Radisson Iloilo

Park Inn by Radisson is an upper mid scale hotel brand that delivers a stress-free vibe, excellent dishes and cuisines adding life and colour to the stay of their guests.

April 2, 2019 —SM hotels and convention corporation (SMHCC) announced the opening of Park Inn by Radisson Iloilo. It was mentioned during the said prestigious event that this is the third Park Inn by Radisson in SMHCC’s Portfolio and it is the first hotel under its licensing agreement with Radisson Hotel Group (RHG)

I’ve always been curious as to what makes this new hotel different from the rest of the hotels found in my hometown. Together, let’s unleash the things that make Park Inn by Radisson Hotel Iloilo.

CULTURE. HERITAGE. CHILDHOOD.

ROOM

The room interiors were painted in vibrant colours reflecting the promises of a happy and energetic service that the hotel aims to provide. The wall decors has a uniform artistic decor(s) of a ‘Paraw’ structure significant to the hearts of every Ilonggo, as one of the biggest sailing festival in Asia is held and celebrated in Iloilo— “Paraw Regatta”.

Ah, my Childhood— “Paraw Regatta” An event which was once actively incorporated by my late American uncle Jonathan Grant, who used to arrange and help boost the tourism of my hometown by sharing his heart and time in this beautiful sailing event. Personally, this wall decor reminded me of my childhood and my roots as a person. Also, this interior design felt like knocking at the hearts of every tourist and travellers, to know more about the culture and heritage of the Ilonggo people during their visit in Iloilo the ‘City of Love’.

Also found in the room are modern chairs, a side table to get things done whenever the clients wish to finish some stuff privately. A flat iron found inside each well-designed closet. A small refrigerator and complimentary coffee and tea set with electric kettle adding convenience to my stay that evening.

Bathroom excellently designed in a modern way with toilet bidet too. The bidet is one of the mandatory requests I noticed whenever I do staycations in and out of the country. I find this part of the shower room brilliant too. Of course, the complimentary toiletries and hygiene kits are to be found inside the bathroom space.

LOCATION

Next to SM city Iloilo Mandurriao. 25 min away from Iloilo international Airport. Situated at the City’s main commercial district.

 

CONNECTIVITY

I believe the need for Wi-Fi especially for business travellers is very essential. Here a complimentary unlimited high-speed internet is available fr every guests.

 

DINING (ANI)

An all day dining experience a farm to table themed hotel restaurant is found. The restaurant interiors were designed to enhance and uplift the lives of the farmers and somehow be a voice to the modern era. Here you may notice corn cobs and random farm-to-table decors are found around the restaurant. I’ve also noticed some ‘Dinagyang’ Costumes adding a vibrant mood to every dinning experience while enjoying a scrumptious dish inside the restaurant. ‘Dinagyang’ is one of the well-known and famous festival in the Philippines held in Iloilo City.

 

CONVENIENCE (DASH)

In a hurry? Worry no more. The newest addition to this modern yet classic hotel is a self-serve section allowing guests to purchase ready-to-eat choices which may be consumed on-the-go. So far, this is the only hotel that has their own self-serve convenience store found inside the hotel lobby.

 

THE LIVING ROOM

Found in the hotel lobby is a space brilliantly designed to accommodate guests aiming to get things done. The space is composed of modern sofa(s) and chairs in rather abstract or irregular shapes arranged like a ‘Living room’ making every productive scene interesting yet leaving a room to feel like you never left home, while actually being your most productive self.

 

FUNCTION ROOM(s)

Venues for gatherings and social events are also available in this hotel. Function rooms may accommodate up to 100 maximum guests. Al fresco facility by the poolside can cater evening social events too.

RECREATION

Here a 4ft. Outdoor pool and gym perfect for adults and children wishing to get fit or simply relax after a long busy day is also available.
To conclude my experience in Park Inn by Radisson Iloilo. What made my stay unique was subconsciously promoting the significance of ILONGGO CULTURE, HERITAGE and bringing back a vibrant CHILDHOOD memory through its interior decorations, plus the convenient ambiance felt in each corner of this property. Unlike other hotels, dinning, events and accommodation experiences may be the most accessible when booking a stay in this hotel especially if the guests wants a space literally just a few steps away from SM City Iloilo.

Hope you liked this staycation review. See you on my next blog post!
