Microtel by Wyndham, an international chain of limited service hotels with properties in strategic locations nationwide, has vaccinated 100 percent of its workforce in a bid to protect its employees and guests from the threat of COVID-19.

This is according to Jose Mari del Rosario, President and CEO of PHINMA Microtel Hotels Inc. & PHINMA Hospitality Inc. (Philippine master franchise holder and operator of all the Microtel and TRYP properties in the country).

“Our team members can only deliver our ‘Count on Us’ level of service when they can confidently say, ‘I’m fully jabbed’ – we owe it to them, their families and of course our guests,” he said.

PHINMA, the group’s parent company, also announced in July the rollout of PHINMAVax, the PHINMA Group’s own inoculation initiative for employees of their construction materials, education, property development, and hospitality businesses and their dependents.

“Vaccinating our employees is part of our shared responsibility in keeping everyone safe from COVID-19. Through PHINMAVax, we offer a safe and reliable option to ensure additional protection for our people all over the country,” said PHINMA President and CEO Ramon R. del Rosario, Jr.

In compliance with the enhanced health and safety protocols, Microtel implemented strict precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

These include the installation of hand-washing and sanitation stations, body temperature screenings, deep cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces, and monitoring of physical distancing in public spaces within the hotel premises.

“We are proud to share that our properties have been issued with the Safety Seal by the Department of Tourism, a recognition of our resolve in ensuring the wellness of our clients and stakeholders,” said Del Rosario.

He added that, “In spite of the ongoing pandemic, we stay true to our commitment to deliver to our guests a safe, secure, and comfortable stay in our Microtel hotels.”

PHINMA Microtel Hotels has a portfolio of properties located in 14 key business hubs and resort destinations: Baguio, Tarlac, Cabanatuan, Pampanga, Batangas, Cavite, South Forbes (near Nuvali), Boracay, Puerto Princesa, Acropolis Quezon City, UP Technohub Quezon City, Mall of Asia, Davao, and Gensan.

The group also holds the master franchise for TRYP by Wyndham, a select service hotel chain with over 100 properties worldwide including one in Mall of Asia.
