MANILA – Red Planet Hotels has solidified its position as the largest and fastest growing owner and operator of budget hotels in the Philippines with the opening of its 12th hotel in the country, Red Planet Quezon Aurora Boulevard, on 13 January 2018.

The innovative and modern lobby includes a bank of Apple computers, an “Info Wall” boasting insider information on events and activities in the area, and a “Photo-Me” screen, where guests may take selfies to instantly share on Social Media. Rooms are appointed with features suited for the discerning traveller, from free high-speed Wi-Fi and soothing power showers to quality custom-made beds and high thread- count linen.

“With the opening of its 12th hotel in the Philippines, eight of which are in Metro Manila, Red Planet is the leader in the budget hotel sector in the Philippines, welcoming an increasing number of both domestic and international travellers to its properties,” remarked Tim Hansing, Red Planet Chief Executive Officer. “The brand will further increase its presence by March 2018 with the opening of Red Planet Manila Binondo.
