SM Hotels and Conventions Corp., a unit of SM Investments Corp., said Thursday it signed a management agreement with Hilton Worldwide to manage the 350-room Conrad Manila at the Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City.
SM Investments said in a statement posted on its Web site that Conrad Manila would open in mid-2015. The hotel is the first Conrad Hotels & Resorts branded property in the Philippines.
The hotel will incorporate two levels of retail and entertainment facilities on the ground level.
“We are very happy to formalize our partnership with Hilton Worldwide as it combines their expertise of a global, award-winning hospitality company with SM’s strong local market expertise,” said Elizabeth Sy, president of SM Hotels.
“Given Conrad Manila’s excellent accessibility to and from all areas of Manila, we are confident that it will deliver best-in-class service to capitalize on strong demand from both domestic and international business and leisure travelers,” she said.
