All properties under SM Hotels and Conventions Corp.’s (SMHCC) portfolio have recently obtained the Department of Tourism Safety Seal given to accommodation establishments who faithfully comply with the Minimum Public Health Standards (MPHS) set by the government and integrate StaySafe.ph with their contact tracing.
Taal Vista Hotel, Pico Sands Hotel, Conrad Manila, Radisson Blu Cebu, Park Inn by Radisson Hotels (North Edsa, Clark, Iloilo, Bacolod, Davao), and SMX Convention Centers (Manila, SM Aura, and Davao) have successfully complied and passed the Safety Seal Certification Program led by the Department of Tourism (DOT), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Department of Health (DOH), and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).
Complementing DOT’s Safety Seal, Radisson Blu Cebu, Park Inn by Radisson Davao, and Park Inn by Radisson Iloilo have likewise been conferred the world’s first-ever global safety and hygiene seal, the Safe Travel Stamp, issued by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) in recognition of the hotels’ compliance with WTTC’s safe travel protocols.
The issuance of the DOT Safety Seal manifests SMHCC’s commitment to ensure the utmost comfort and safety of its guests and employees. With its stringent protocols under the SustainablySafe Program, SMHCC leaves no stone unturned and follows intensive sets of policies, while applying efficient and methodical procedures.“The DOT’s Safety Seal literally serves as a stamp of approval, giving our guests the assurance that they need when staying in our properties, and is a testament to SMHCC’s uncompromising health and safety standards. Strengthened by our very own SustainablySafe Program, we have ably primed our properties for the new normal and gained our guests’ confidence, making their safety our topmost priority,” said Ms. Peggy E. Angeles, SMHCC Executive Vice President.
