The City Garden Grand Hotel might claim it’s clueless about the New Year’s eve party held by flight attendant Christine Dacera before she died, but its own Facebook page advertised staycation packages for guests who want to take a break.
Posts on its official page dating back November 3 offer “special rates” for stays, promising “enhanced cleaning procedures in all common areas” and a crowd-less check in experience for guests.
“As we welcome you back on your stay, we would like to assure you that your health, safety and convenience is our utmost priority. We have implemented safety measures in accordance to adjusting to the New Normal,” the hotel said.
“Your health, wellness and safety is our utmost priority, City Garden Grand Hotel partnered with Diversey, a leading provider of sustainable solutions for cleaning, hygiene, food safety and infection prevention to ensure a clean and worry-free stay with us,” the post read.
The Department of Tourism (DOT) has suspended the hotel for six months and revoked its certificate to operate for violating its rules.
Under DOT Administrative Order No. 2020-002-C, hotels operating as quarantine facilities are prohibited from accepting guests for leisure.
Dacera was found unconscious in the bathtub of one of City Garden Grand Hotel’s rooms on January 1.
