FROM 50 rooms, homegrown hospitality player Golden Prince Hotel and Suites has expanded to 158 rooms with the completion of its second tower, connecting to its existing facility at the corner of Acacia St. and Archbishop Reyes Ave. in Cebu City.
“There’s more need for more rooms. There’s a growing (number of) tourists in Cebu,” said Golden Prince senior marketing strategist Esty “Barbie” Buchards.
Marketing itself as a local hotel providing guests a “unique Cebuano royalty experience,” the 11-storey Golden Prince Hotel has renovated its existing rooms and adopted a “modernized Cebuano” architectural approach.
Room size range from 21 square meters to 81 square meters, with promotional rates at P2,000 to P7,600.
In addition, Buchards said the hotel has expanded its food and beverage outlets and added health and wellness facilities like a gym and spa.
One of the newest outlets is the Kabilin Heritage Lounge that serves local delicacies like biko, banana turon, and sikwate. They also opened Q Cafe inside the hotel that serves specialty coffee and pastries.
“We may be a two, three-star hotel, but we consider our service to be five-star,” Burchards said, highlighting the newest additions to the hotel.
Golden Prince is home to domestic tourists, the official said, but the hotel has also booked foreign guests, mostly Koreans and Singaporeans.
