DAVAO City's steady rise as an economic hub and a gateway city in Mindanao proves the need of international hotels like Park Inn by Radisson to bring global hospitality standard to the city.

Davao today is also a growing hub of Mice (Meeting, Incentives, Conferencing and Exhibitions), which gives a good indication of the business climate of the city.

Park Inn by Radisson is Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group's internationally successful mid-scale hotels. It is a segment-leading brand with a 26-year track record of delivering quality guest experience, focusing on the modern essentials of today's business and leisure travelers.


The property in Davao became the brand's springboard to Asia Pacific in year 2013, with its contemporary 204-room hotel strategically located next to the SMX Convention Center and SM Lanang Premier Mall.

"Since the time Park Inn by Radisson Davao opened its doors last March 22, 2013, we have seen a significant increase in the number of groups arriving in Davao either for business or leisure. Our partner establishment next door, the SMX Convention Center, has changed the game as it welcomed bigger delegations, giving more opportunities for hotels like ours. It gave us not only an opportunity to showcase the hotel, but also to promote the best of Davao's hospitality, sights, sounds and flavors," Pavan Kakar, the hotel's general manager.

"The industry players have all been instrumental in attracting these events to Davao. The whole city is now reaping fruits out of the strong and dynamic collaboration by both private and government sectors, who worked relentlessly in promoting the region across all market segments," he added.

Working in tandem with its partner establishments, Park Inn by Radisson Davao offers travelers a myriad of choices from accommodation, dining, entertainment and shopping, as well as practical solutions and unique packages for meeting and events.

"Davao City is one of the Philippines' most exciting eco-adventure tourism destinations. Whether it is exploring the nearby islands or going on a shopping spree, we give our guests an ideal location from which to explore the city, as well as easy access to business and leisure amenities," Kakar said.

"Dream in color and relax in the comfort of whichever room category you choose. In total, we have 204 Rooms and Suites that deliver a great night's sleep in a clean, personalized environment," he added.

Meetings and Celebrations

The hotel also offers the best venues for successful meetings. With smart services and smart rooms, including 4 meeting rooms that can each accommodate up to 30 persons, the hotel is the smart choice for both formal and informal meetings and events. In addition, the Lobby Café at the ground level provides guests with a lifestyle hub where they can socialize and relax in the spacious area or enjoy a book and other media.

Food and Beverage options in the hotel include RBG (Restaurant Bar & Grill), a hip all-day dining restaurant. RBG is a bold bar and grill concept that delivers buzz and ambience, great food and friendly service in a modern setting.

On the second floor is the recreation hub, which houses leisure facilities such as the swimming pool, fitness center and pool bar. Guests can dip, sip dine as they indulge in some R&R and socialize with family and friends amid the cool, fresh air.

"Busy urbanites nowadays look for a place to hang out after office hours," Kakar said. "The pool lounge and bar is a modern space where you can unwind and enjoy some Bar Chow paired with our featured cocktails. The al fresco scenery alone inspires a light and cheery mood that can soothe any weary soul."
