A new property is changing the landscape of bustling San Fernando, Pampanga. This is BEST WESTERN Bendix Hotel, a 3-star accomodation in Barangay Dolores. Constructed through a partnership between Best Western International and Hilcres Consolidated Corporation, it is the first "green hotel" in the city. 
The first accommodation awarded an investment incentive by the City of San Fernando for utilizing environment-friendly design and practices is about to open on July, the BEST Western Bendix Hotel. As to what I know, the City of San Fernando has been promoting different environmental advocacies through the past years,  this is why BEST WESTERN Bendix Hotel utilized green building practices and technologies. And according to Rion Patawaran, chief executive officer of Hilcres Consolidated Corporation, the first tile provider in Pampanga and a formidable player in the construction industry in the Philippines, the development of an environment-friendly hotel is a conscious choice because of the challenges brought about by climate change.

"Green initiattives such as recycling of waste water for hydrophonic gardening, the ubiquitous use of low flow plumbing fixtures, and the installation of low-emissivity glass window panels are among the many features that make us the most environment-friendly hotel in the province of Pampanga," Patawaran said.

BEST WESTERN Bendix Hotel is the latest addition to the Best Western International brand in the country. This marks the expansion of the international company that manages and oversees the operation of 6 hotels across the city of Manila, Makati, Cebu City, Boracay, Subic, and Palawan. There are many standards to make a hotel part of the said international company that were took in consideration in this new development, which makes BEST WESTERN Bendix Hotel really one of the best.
One of those standards that was to be followed to have the BEST WESTERN brand is to have a wide hallway. 
Beyond promoting an eco-friendly advocacy, BEST WESTERN Bendix Hotel stands as a legacy of the unwavering entrepreneurial spirit of the Patawarans. The family patriarch, Ruben died 3 months before the hotel broke ground in November 2012. "The erection of this monument called 'Bendix Hotel' is a testament, not only to the visionary leadership of our mother, Dita, but also to the tenacious and preserving nature of our family rising up from the ashes in order to chart a new path towards the continuation of the legacy of our beloved father," Patawaran said. With the construction of the hotel, "the spirit of our father lives in all of us, his children."

Located at the junction of MacArthur Highway and Olongapo-Gapan Road, BEST WESTERN Bendix Hotel is also the newest business hub in Central Luzon. It boasts banquet facilities that can cater from small board meetings to large conventions for 300 persons. A coffee shop at the ground floor offers a more casual gathering place, while the restaurant at the mezzanine allows guests to meet with company for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or cocktails.

The 46 rooms of this hotel in the City of San Fernando fulfill the need of every individual, be it optimum productivity for the busy executive or  utmost relaxation for the leisure traveler. Pocket spring mattresses, double-panel glass windows, and blackout curtains guarantee a comfortable sleep. An executive desk and 24/7 high-speed internet access ensure efficiency when work needs to be done. Rooms also have an LED TV, wardrobes, and a private bathroom with shower. Here are some pictures of their rooms that would really make you feel that you need to have a  staycation soon!
