In early 2011, the country’s largest first-class hotel operator Waterfront Philippines Inc. (WPI) announced that it will be embarking on a multi-million renovation program geared towards further improving its flagship property in Cebu, the grand and stately Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino (WCCHC). We lo and behold! Check out the new lobby now! *whistles*


A few weeks ago, we were treated to that grandeur as the Waterfront officially launched their newest lobby lounge with cocktails, a fashion show with Cebu Fashion Designers and a message from their new Manager.

Waterfront Hotel and Casino Cebu New Lobby

“With the launching of the newly-renovated lobby comes a promise of enhancing our present product and service offerings that will eventually yield to better guest experience”, Waterfront’s Assistant to the President, Mr. Weslie Gatchalian, declares.

Furthermore, Gatchalian expresses what guests can expect from Waterfront’s lobby: “Separate canopies and entrances have been built for the hotel, casino and convention areas, which will certainly improve traffic patterns. Guests are guaranteed an even better check-in experience with a brand new reception area, which includes a more spacious Concierge counter and a wider Front Desk that will cater exclusively to individual travelers. Brand new communications and IT gadgets have been acquired to further ensure the smooth reception of guests as well.  Other enhancements include newly-built ticket booth for conventions and concerts, Egyptian marble flooring, improvements to the ceiling’s three coves and the lobby’s balconies and staircases, and state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment.”

Waterfront’s patrons can now expect a more efficient service with the addition of these facilities. The newly-constructed group check-in counter which is dedicated solely to corporate and travel groups complements the Hotel’s main lobby along with the new Duty Free area, and the new Casino Filipino wing. This increases operational efficiency and adds more exciting features for the hotel’s customers.

Congratulations, Waterfront and thanks for inviting us!
