Pinoy Travelers Are Choosing Five-Star Hotels for New Year's Eve
According to Agoda.
(SPOT.ph) 2020 threw a huge curveball to all our travel plans. And with Metro Manila hotels finally given the go signal to open to staycationers, it doesn't come as a surprise that people are booking rooms for the holidays. According to booking data from digital travel platform Agoda.com, Pinoy travelers are choosing to stay at four- and five-star hotels to ring in 2021.
5 Star Hotels for New Year's Eve
This trend is also seen globally as more global travelers choose high-end accommodations, pushing lower-rated hotels a notch down compared to their number one ranking last year. Travelers from Taiwan, Thailand, and the United States, however, still favor one to 3.5-star hotels; while Korean and Singaporean travelers maintained their preference for four- to five-star hotels.
"While 2020 might have upended many travelers’ plans, Agoda’s data that four to five-star hotels are most popular among New Year’s Eve bookings this year shows us that there’s great desire among travelers to pamper themselves and optimistically usher in the New Year in style. We are heartened that travelers are not letting the pandemic dampen their travel spirits, and are also spending the New Year exploring domestic destinations less traveled, supporting local tourism communities in those areas," said Errol Cooke, Vice President of Partner Services at Agoda.
