Clark International Airport has seen a growth in the number of flights it receives from different parts of Asia and the Middle East. However, travelers that use the airport, especially those who fly early morning or late night flights, have been limited to a few quality options. Thankfully, Park Inn by Radisson Clark just opened nearby, and I checked it out for a first look.
Among the main selling points of Park Inn by Radisson Clark is its location. It’s a few minutes away from the fast-growing Clark International Airport, Clark Freeport Zone, and the vibrant city of Angeles, Pampanga. Being within the complex of SM City Clark, needs are within reach, and there’s a transportation hub nearby.
After an hour and a half journey from Cubao in Quezon City, I was welcomed into the hotel by its friendly staff who were clearly excited with the brand new hotel’s opening. After a few minutes of admiring the hotel’s vibrant and colorful lobby, I was already checked in.
The Standard Room seemed a somewhat compact at first, but as I stayed there I saw how carefully laid out it is. And I couldn’t be more happy with the design—it’s modern, chic, and for the most part, lively and colorful.
All the amenities needed by today’s smart travelers, from a power shower to bed side power outlets, were present, and as I was there to do work as well, I was happy with the comfortable bed and, of course, the speed of the hotel’s free wireless internet.
The breakfasts are served at HUES, its all-day, casual bar and restaurant. The selection, a variety of Western and Filipino items, is modest yet filling.
Aside from HUES, the hotel offers travelers a swimming pool, a fitness center, and state-of-the-art meeting rooms.
In all, Park Inn by Radisson Clark is a great addition to the city. With cozy rooms and friendly service, it’s perfect for those who wish to get a good night’s rest after a flight or start fresh before flying out of the airport nearby. I also believe it has the potential to be a nice staycation spot, so I can’t wait to stay there again and experience more of it as it opens fully.
