SM Hotels and Conventions Corp. (SMHCC) has transformed its Radisson Hotel Group (RHG) properties to adapt to the needs of the hospitality industry amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

SMHCC is thus proud to present its brainchild In Residence. Peggy E. Angeles, SMHCC executive vice president says, “Fully conceptualized by SMHCC, In Residence is a highly customized innovation in long-term hotel accommodation. It effectively fills in the dynamic needs of guests looking for well-appointed spaces with the conveniences and perks associated with hotel living, vis-à-vis usual rentals that do not enjoy these unique benefits such as worry-free housekeeping, complimentary parking, unlimited high speed internet access and utilities.”

Properties encompassing In Residence span Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. They have been tactically developed within multi-purpose communities that enable easy access to retail outlets and malls, notable sites, essential facilities like hospitals, and major thoroughfares, further rounding out a fully integrated masterplan where these properties are located.

Room rates for In Residence start at P1,100 per night, inclusive of tax and service charge, and additional perks for a minimum stay of 30 continuous nights at these participating RHG hotels: Park Inn by Radisson North EDSA, Park Inn by Radisson Iloilo, Park Inn by Radisson Davao, and Radisson Blu Cebu.
