Marco Polo on renovation
CATHAY International Resources Inc., the owning company of five-star Marco Polo Plaza Cebu, is earmarking P300 million for the renovation projects of the hotel this year.
The hotel will be embarking on renovation projects specifically for the grand ballroom, Blu Bar and Grill and the hotel’s suites and premium rooms. The ballroom renovation started last March and the first phase of the upgrade is expected to be completed by August this year, in time for Cebu’s hosting today’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit (APEC).
Marco Polo announced it will upgrade in phases its Blu Bar and Grill this month. It will have an outdoor and indoor area, inclusive of a private room for exclusive dinners and events. From a 60-seating capacity, the improved Blu Bar can now sit up to 150 persons.
“Since its opening in 2008, it has steadily gained popularity due to its fantastic view and exquisite fine dining offerings and with this came higher business demands,” said Najar.
Moreover, the hotel will continue upgrading its rooms. After completing the renovation for 228 deluxe rooms last year, Najar disclosed the hotel will now focus on renovating its 101 premium rooms and suites.
