A soon-to-rise hotel in Cebu City touts itself as a COVID-19 proofed new hotel. 

The Board of Investments (BOI) recently approved the registration of SureStay Plus Hotel’s P45 million COVID-19 proofed new investment project. 

SureStay Plus Hotel is one of the globally recognized and fastest growing Best Western Hotels and Resorts brands. 

SureStay Plus Hotel by Best Western Cebu City will introduce international service standards and amenities to the premium-economy hotel sector. Located on Osmena Boulevard, adjacent to the Cebu Doctor’s University Hospital, this modern property will provide easy access to the city’s main business and leisure areas. 

This is the second premium economy hotel project of Cebu Quad Management Corp., in partnership with SureStay Plus Hotel by Best Western. The first hotel SureStay Plus Hotel by Best Western AC LUXE Angeles City opened in May 2019.

As a COVID-19 proofed hotel, the 63-room SureStay Plus Hotel will be adopting information technology (IT) systems for contact tracing, online booking, and contactless payment. The hotel will also install cameras equipped with thermal sensors or no-contact thermal scanner and disinfecting kiosks with sensors as part of measures to reduce COVID-19 infections.

SureStay Plus Hotel in Cebu City is projected to generate some 32 direct and indirect jobs in its first five years of operations. The project will also help address the room gap by contributing 63 new rooms and is expected to provide additional income to food and beverage suppliers and furniture designers and makers of high-quality handicrafts in Cebu. 

The project supports the government’s “Buy Local” campaign which aims to promote patronage of products and services of domestic enterprises to help them recover from losses during the lockdown.
