Pacific will open in Cebu on 27 September 2010.
Located in the Philippines’ oldest and second
largest city, the 400-room Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu is centrally
located beside the SM City Cebu Mall, one of the largest shopping
and entertainment complexes in the region. The hotel is 11

The interior design
of the Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu will feature a strong use of local,
natural elements such as woodwork carvings, weavings and pearls.
All 400-rooms will be equipped with 37-inch flat screen
televisions and iPod docking stations. As with all Carlson hotels, guests
at the Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu will be
provided with complimentary high-speed Internet access available

breakfast and evening cocktails, and use of a meeting room. It
also includes added perks such as upgraded room and amenities,
complimentary daily newspaper, turn-down service, express check-in
and check-out services, a Nespresso coffee machine in the
guestroom, and complimentary pressing of garments upon arrival.
“Apart from being recognized as one of the top island

with convention facilities that meet international standards.
Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu is positioned to deliver some of the
highest levels of comfort and quality, making it an ideal hotel
for business and leisure travellers,” said Grant Gaskin, general
manager, Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu.
