The Marriott at Clark, to be rated as Pampanga’s first 5-star hotel, will be built right next to the Widus Hotel & Casino. the 15-story hotel will have 260 room keys. It will feature the usual Marriott facilities such as Goji kitchen and bar, great room, pool bar, executive lounge, ballroom and meeting venues.
