Robinsons Land Corp. plans to build 30 new budget hotels over the next five years, including 20 that will be covered by franchises. “We want to open at least 30 hotels in five years. Now we have found a franchisee that is willing to open 20 hotels,” Mr. Frederick D. Go, president and COO of Robinsons Land, was quoted as saying.
Several hotels are now planned at Tacloban City in Leyte, Dumaguete City in Negros Oriental, Puerto Princesa City in Palawan, and Laoag City in Ilocos Norte. The first GoHotels, a 223-room facility, opened in Mandaluyong City in May 2010.
