Home Crest Residences shows competitiveness-A A +A
Wednesday, September 19, 2012
TWO years may be so short a period to tell if a business has gained firm footing in market competition. But Home Crest Residences, a boutique hotel in Davao City, has proven its competitiveness in just two years of operation.
Home Crest Residences, a three-storey value boutique hotel located along Tulip Drive, Ecoland in Davao City, has introduced all-new amenities that can spruce up the entire luxurious stay of all its guests.
Hotel general manager Elizabeth Teves said the accommodation establishment underwent 32 renovations this year.
Some of the renovations that took the hotel's homey ambiance to a notch higher are the newly painted interior and facade of the building.
The hotel houses 28 rooms, which are classified into standard and premium rooms. The new mini-bars are also an additional amenity for premium rooms, which crank up the convenience on the part of the visitors.
It also houses D'Blue Hub Cafe.Bar, a cozy coffee shop and bar, wherein both visitors and walk-in customers can unwind and leave the burden of the bustling city behind.
Jason Ray Orizonte, front desk receptionist, took few of the visitors for an excursion to some of the rooms of the hotel, with each having its own fully-air-conditioned and zen-inspired rooms, hot and cold shower, digital television, and multi-function telephone system. The whole building is also a Wifi zone.
"Just in case, our Wifi will not work so well. We can provide the guests with wired internet connection as an alternative," Orizonte said.
Guests can also expect a better security inside the hotel, as it is equipped with security and CCTV Cameras in common areas.
Each room is also equipped with a secured electronic door lock, which uses an electronic key card that can ensure the privacy and safety of all the guests and their things as well.
Teves added the renovation works are an investment to keep an exceptional customer service, including professional reception service, concierge service, housekeeping, and 24-house security.
"Our main edge is really our people. We're happy to say we're getting positive reviews from guests. We also make sure to maintain cleanliness and improve our day-to-day work," she said.
Continuing improvement of amenities is a much needed necessity for an accommodation establishment to remain footing in a tight competition with rivals. (Antonio L. Colina IV)
