MANILA, Philippines–The Best Western hotel brand is now in Angeles City with the opening of The Mint Hotel, the first internationally branded hotel in the city proper.

With the nearby Clark International Airport becoming a key international hub, the hotel hopes to attract a growing number of both international and domestic visitors.

Located on Fields Avenue, in the Balibago tourist district, the eight-story Mint Hotel has 52 rooms with flat-screen HD TVs with cable channels, minibars, work desks and complimentary Wi-Fi. The café-restaurant offers complimentary buffet breakfast. Other hotel facilities include a laundry and car rental services.

"We are very excited about bringing our world famous brand to Angeles, the Philippines' most up-and-coming entertainment capital," said Glenn de Souza, Best Western International's vice president international operations —Asia & the Middle East.

"The potential for Angeles as a destination is enormous and the recent arrival of AirAsia Philippines, as well as the presence of Cebu Pacific, SEAIR, AirPhil Express and other international carriers at Clark airport is testament to the growth of the area. As the first international hotel chain in the city, we are delighted to be at the forefront of this development," Mr. de Souza added.

Best Western currently operates five hotels in the Philippines, but this portfolio is expected to more than double to 12 properties by the beginning of 2014.
