History of Manila Pavilion Hotel
One of the country’s pioneering hotels is the Manila Pavilion Hotel (Fig. 1). It is owned and operated by Ace sites (Phil’s) hotel corporation, a company listed on the Philippine Stock Exchange. During the year 1968, the Ace sites, formerly known as the Delgado Brothers Hotel Corporation, had an agreement with the Hilton International and opened the Manila Hilton Hotel. In 1988, Sino-I technologies limited, a Hong Kong based group, acquired majority control of Ace sites, and the Hotel was named Manila Pavilion Hotel, which was named by CIM Hotel Management.
