Metro Manila has become synonymous to unbearable traffic and long lines at transport hubs and train stations. Commuters have it rough, especially during thunderstorms where flooding will naturally and occasionally follow, because often times they become stranded and have no where else to go. Rather than waiting for the weather to clear, or for the traffic to ease, why not opt to stay in a hotel that is affordable, comfortable, and reliable?
RedDoorz is a tech-enabled chain of budget hotels that provides the finest affordable stays for its customers depending on their needs and wants. Founded in Singapore, it has since reached and operated in Indonesia, Vietnam, and now the Philippines. There are over 150 properties in 10 major cities and counting. One of those cities is Quezon City. RedDoorz is opening the doors for travelers and commuters at the “City of Stars” with two properties — RedDoorz Premium Trinoma and RedDoorz Premium @ South Triangle.
RedDoorz Premium Trinoma and South Triangle
RedDoorz Premium Trinoma is just a stone’s throw away from the Trinoma mall, the North Avenue MRT Station and other transport terminals. This property is especially ideal for commuters who are stranded due to heavy traffic, floods or long lines at the terminals and would rather spend the night resting comfortably. The rooms in this property are aptly furnished with comfortable beds, has a TV, WiFi internet connection, and a hot-and-cold shower in the bathroom. At its penthouse, there is a swimming pool and an event’s place to hold special occasions while giving a lovely view of Quezon City.
The RedDoorz Premium @South Triangle is the most upgraded among RedDoorz’s properties. Located between the two major television networks, this particular property has attended to the needs of many local celebrities, and then some. The rooms are well designed and furnished, and come in studio, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units — perfect for families and big groups. The property has numerous facilities for guests to enjoy including a rooftop bar, a KTV room, and a gym. It also has several function rooms that can accommodate small business meetings, business conferences, or even grand celebrations.
RedDoorz partners with local boutique hotels, inns, and other privately owned properties to standardize the budget hotel experience by leveraging on its network of properties. Prices of each RedDoorz property differ, however, based on the grading system of Basic, Plus and Premium. In order to ensure that guests get the best deals, they are encouraged to download the RedDoorz app.
With the RedDoorz app, users can streamline their search to fit their desired budget, how many people they need to book for, specified locations, and exact dates for when the room is needed. Each property has detailed descriptions and photos of available rooms and amenities offered, as well as authentic reviews so travelers get exactly what they’re looking for.
Payment is a breeze with RedDoorz’s flexible payment options. Customers and visitors can pay through credit card, DragonPay, cash, and at 7-Eleven outlets. For guests who have enjoyed their stay at RedDoorz and would like to experience other RedDoorz properties, the company has a rewards system called RedCash; where guests can get exclusive discounts and deals through the RedClub membership.
