The Obsidian Suites Hotel is a 10-storey business hotel with a roof deck with approximately 90 rooms ranging from superior, deluxe, junior and executive suites, and themed-suites.
Domingo said the hotel will have meeting rooms and two 50-seater function rooms convertible to a mid-size ballroom. It will have two restaurant outlets on the ground floor while the other is at the roof deck.
Confident of undertaking this project, Domingo said the company will continue to be the “Community Builder” in Davao under its core values of Commitment, Customer Focus, Excellence, Expertise, Integrity, Leadership, Quality and Teamwork in the execution and realization of this mega project.
He said his company’s aggressiveness of embarking in project expansion is due to the government financial institutions to support their internally driven capital investments.
He said this twin projects will have a positive impactvon Davao City’s economy particularly in the labor sector as this development is entirely Davao designed, locally managed, and uses local constructions, talent and suppliers. PNA
