Floirendo's, Microtel To Put Up P90M Hotel In Gensan
The Floirendos of Davao City, who owns the Microtel Inns & Suite franchise in the area, are expected to invest in General Santos City's hotel industry through the construction of the P90-million Microtel Inns & Suites.
The 50-room hotel, which will reportedly start during the first three months of 2009, will be located just in front of St. Elizabeth Hospital along National Highway. Residents of General Santos City have noticed the clearing of some of the establishments in the area which consists of a drugstore, bakeshop and a convenience store.
This was confirmed by the Microtel Development Corp. business development manager Grace T. Magnaye who said her company are indeed discussing such a possibility with the Floirendos of Davao.
Next to Davao City, General Santos City (which is only 3 hours from Davao) has been attracting several conventions and other national gatherings over the past years. Microtel is just one of the many investors that have signified their confidence in Gensan's economy. The construction of the Robinsons Mall has already started while SM City is in the process of negotiating with landowners in their target site.
