MABALACAT CITY -- Mayor Marino “Boking” Morales has lauded Midori Hotel and Casino for its contribution in tourism and job generation.
Morales said the city as well as his constituents benefit from the operation of Clark’s first five-star hotel which started it soft opening a year ago.
“Midori Hotel and Casino has generated hundreds of jobs for our Kabalens. Aside from this, the hotel has contributed to the local tourism because it has attracted thousands of tourists from different countries,” Morales said.
The grand opening of Midori Hotel and Casino was held on Monday, with Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III leading the ribbon cutting.
The P4 billion hotel, located inside the Clark Freeport, is developed by BB International Leisure and Resort Development Corp. (BBI), a corporation owned by Taiwanese investors.
BBI chairman Jack Yang, director Ford Chiang and president Dr. Irineo Alvaro Jr.; Department of Tourism Central Luzon regional director Ronnie Tiotuico; Clark Development Corporation Assistant Vice President Noelle Meneses; and Midori general manager Vic Chan accompanied Pimentel in leading the hotel’s formal launching.
Dr. Ireneo Alvaro, president of BBI said, the hotel, which has 111 luxury rooms with a total area of 9,900 square meters, can accommodate up to 30,000 guests.
Midori offers airport limousine service such as express check-in/check-out service, free shuttle service to SM Clark Mall (scheduled), city tour arrangement service, complimentary fruits and delicate snacks, wedding banquet and conference services, business center, high-speed and wireless internet access.
The hotel also offers food and beverage reservations hotline, laundry and valet services, safety deposit boxes, 88 parking space on B1/ Valet parking service, in-house clinic, foreign currency exchange, babysitting service, 24-hour concierge service, and five wheelchair-accessible guest rooms with special support in the bathtubs and toilets.
Alvaro said that aside from the iconic structural design, the hotel has bigger than usual hotel rooms, convention center, swimming pools, restaurants, and other amenities that local and foreign tourists will enjoy during their visit.
The hotel structure has been completed on time.
