Things can only get better for Red Planet Hotels (formerly known by another name). In response to the ever-changing demands of its core customers and potential guests, the 24-property hotel brand is poised to redefine the value hotel experience. More than a budget stay, the Red Planet accommodation is expected to respond to the technologically-driven whims of the value-conscious traveller. On its hospitality agenda is a more focused shift to a smarter approach: high quality, comfortable, technology-enabled stays in desirable locations at attractive rates.

Located At The Fringes

I recently experienced this shift in operations at the redefined Red Planet Hotels-Ortigas. The Pasig City hotel branch sits at the fringes of the exciting commercial district of Mandaluyong City and the bustling corporate district of Ortigas Center. It was the overnight venue for my food trips of a hole-in-the-wall restaurant in the city proper of Pasig and Shakey’s that sits next to dining destination, Kapitolyo.

From One Milestone To Another

After determining in a survey that most of its guests are young and upbeat travellers, Red Planet Hotels has decided to infuse innovations in the way it operates. I happened to find the upgraded Wi-Fi speed at the hotel remarkable. It was also stable all throughout my stay. For that matter, I’m looking forward to the hotel’s next milestone -- the guest-enabled chat via the Red Planet Hotels app – which will give guests the convenience of sending messages to the front desk for a more responsive approach to customer service. Apart from being an efficient booking portal, the app is touted to feed information about relevant local events and points of interest directly to guests’ hand-held devices. It is also anticipated to facilitate room-to-room calling along with many other innovative features.

Guest Loyalty Program For Rewards

For now, guests can be part of the RemembeRED loyalty program that rewards them for frequent stays. More than catering to foreign backpackers on stopover mode, the hotel is a favorite among value-conscious Asian travellers who are on long stays. And, why not? The bed and pillows are plush. Basic room features such as air conditioning, a wall-installed 32-inch flat screen TV, hair dryer, expansive mirror, a fancy window view of the metropolis, in-room safe and soothing power shower are intact. With its location along Shaw Boulevard, it’s quite accessible from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) via EDSA and it’s near major malls and next to corporate skyscrapers. As a result, travellers on business and those in between appointments find it a perfect choice for an overnight stay.

REDefined For The Better

The new Red Planet concept has been unveiled across its portfolio of 24 hotels, consisting of 3,783 rooms in Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines. In addition to the existing portfolio, Red Planet will be opening the new brand’s flagship properties in Tokyo and Bangkok this year.

Since opening its first hotel in 2011, Red Planet Hotels has welcomed nearly four million guests.
