In response to Department of Tourismís call on tourism stakeholders to invest on more hotel and resorts infrastructures and facilities particularly rooms to meet the demand of targeted three million foreign tourists this year, Hotel La Corona de Lipa (HLCL) has announced the completion of its renovation and expansion project.
Only a 90-minute drive from Makati, the HLCL combines resort, hotel and restaurant facilities of the La Corona Group of properties managed by Best Westerns.
The ISO 9001:200-certified hotel boasts of over 40 fully air-conditioned rooms, two function rooms, a comfy barcum-restaurant called Caffeine Plus, and 8 elegantly-designed family KTV Music Zones that offer over 2,000 song selections in Korean, Chinese, English, and Filipino languages.

Each room is also equipped with cable TV connection featuring 33 in-house movie channels as well as bathrooms with hot & cold running water, plus a swimming pool and the usual sports & recreation room with darts, table tennis and billiards.
Hotel La Corona de Lipa is now also a favorite watering hole of some of the countryís famous talk show hosts, teen stars, TV movie celebrities, basketball stars and even political figures.

Conveniently located along Laurel highway in Pilahan, Sabang, Lipa City, Hotel La Corona de Lipa is practically just a few meters away from the official residence of tinseltownís "Star for All Seasons," Lipa City Mayor Vilma Santos.
The new SM Lipa-Batangas mall thatís being erected in front of the hotel makes it all the more convenient for corporate travelers and their families to attend business meetings in the morning, then enjoy the mallís various leisure offerings in the evening.
