SM Hotels and Conventions Corp. (SMHCC) and Lanson Place Hospitality Management Limited (LPHM) signed a management agreement heralding the introduction of the Lanson Place brand in the Philippines.
The first Lanson Place in the Philippines will be located at the heart of SM Mall of Asia providing guests with direct access to extensive retail, F&B and entertainment facilities. The property which will feature a 250-room hotel and a 150-room serviced suites will also be within close proximity to the flagship SMX Convention Center Manila as well as the iconic eCom office buildings, making it ideal for business travelers and MICE delegates.
“We are delighted to be able to introduce Lanson Place’s contemporary lifestyle into The Philippines. This is an important milestone for our Group, as we establish our first foothold in the Philippines. Lanson Place Hotel and Serviced Suites will serve as an ideal setting for guests looking for quality accommodation and attentive service, whether for a short or long-term stay. We are very excited to be collaborating with SMHCC on this project and we can’t wait to receive our first guests,” says Lanson Place Hospitality Management CEO Michael Hobson.
Lanson Place is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Wing Tai Properties Limited, a publicly listed company in Hong Kong, currently manages eleven properties comprising luxury hotels and serviced apartments in Shanghai, Chengdu, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, and Hong Kong. The Group will be operating a new luxurious serviced apartment in Melbourne which is targeted to open in late 2021

It’s anticipated opening of the property underscores the expanding footprint of SMHCC and will be an added boost in the booming Philippine hospitality industry,” adds SMHCC President Elizabeth Sy.
