Traveling to Mindanao Gets More Affordable With Go Hotels Butuan

Go Hotels Butuan is centrally located, practically in the vicinity of important regional and district offices of the Caraga Region. Highways lead to and from the cities of Davao, General Santos and Cagayan de Oro, as well as to the neighboring province of Agusan del Sur.

As the commercial hub of Agusan del Norte, Butuan City offers transport linkages through air, land and water. The ease and accessibility through conveyances has been made much more convenient with the addition of more flights coming into the city.

This is why Go Hotels, the ‘essential service’ hospitality brand of Robinsons Hotels & Resorts, Robinsons Land Corporation’s leisure and hospitality arm has opened its ninth hotel in its ever-growing chain; and the very first in the island of Mindanao.

Room Options

Guests would be delighted to choose between twin beds or a king-sized bed! Imagine the ultra-comfort of a welcoming bed after a hectic day of transacting business or simply enjoying the sights & sounds of the city. “We are known as a no-frills hotel, but we don’t compromise on comfort,” maintains Elizabeth Gregorio, general manager of Robinsons Hotels & Resorts.

But whatever they opt for, guests would be in “comfort heaven” sleeping in Windsor beds that provide back support, high-thread-count sheets and duvets, a choice of chiropractic or fiber-fill pillows that prop the head up to a restful slumber, and refreshing hot/cold rain shower stalls with soap & shampoo.

All these plus a large LED-screen television, safety deposit box for important belongings, and free Wi-Fi connection so you get connected to family, friends and business colleagues 24/7.  

And since it is located on the fourth and fifth floors of Robinsons Place Butuan Mall, also the city’s first full-service mall, Go Hotels guests will have a much easier access to a wide assortment of shopping, dining and entertainment options.

Each floor will have 52 rooms, or a total of 104.   Bringing the ante much higher are rooms dedicated for PWDs (persons with disabilities) wherein, structurally, their special room needs are met.

Plus, a laundry shop, spa services, as well as transport facilities are likewise available for the guests should the need arise.

Outstanding Amenities

Business meetings and conferences can be accommodated in two Go Hotels Butuan’s function rooms. Located at the third level, the bigger function room can accommodate approximately a hundred people in a banquet setting! A smaller, more compact function room can seat approximately twenty-five people.

“These function rooms are fully equipped with audio-visual equipment and the other essential accoutrements needed during business meetings and/or intimate gatherings, such as the periodic assemblages of civic organizations and chamber of commerce units,” adds Ms. Gregorio. 

A commercial hub like Butuan City will not only attract the usual business agenda but also those within the ambit of the MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences & events) umbrella. This makes Go Hotels a necessary convenience as everything is now within arms-reach.    

Local scene

All work with no play, makes a dull day! A short drive along the highway to Surigao is the Mainit Lake, an eco-tourist destination that supports its thriving flora & fauna. Enjoy some quiet time enjoying the serene spectacle from the tourist view deck. You may also opt to visit the souvenir shop for some pasalubong and gifts.

As a trading post since the 10th century, the city’s real lure is in its cultural heritage that’s housed in its museum. Take time off to visit and be amazed at the wealth of history Butuan has brought to the shores of Mindanao.

Butuan’s robust local economy is visibly seen by the presence of commercial banks and car companies that dot the entire city. This extends to the increasing day tourist traffic from nearby towns. The meandering Agusan River that traverses the entire province has also brought agricultural produce and livestock to its markets.

The hillocks that protect residents from typhoons are also the grazing lands of much livestock. Some of these acreages are also devoted to bananas and pineapple that are farmed for multinationals like Dole and Del Monte.

So, at least once or twice a week, farmers and workers both hie off to Butuan for a taste of the sweet city life. And with Go Hotels offering value-for-money deals, home is never far away.

There are also Go Hotels in Puerto Princesa, Dumaguete, Tacloban, Bacolod, Iloilo, and three in Metro Manila: Otis-Manila, Mandaluyong, and Ortigas.
