Hospitality 2.0: Hotel Sogo’s Innovation in Post-Covid-19

We are all aware that the world is facing an economic, health, and social crisis due to CoVid-19, which is an illness caused by a virus that can spread from person to person. The pandemic affected a lot of people and businesses. The pandemic turned many hotel businesses upside down, especially here in the Philippines.

As we all know, the hotel industry is designed to operate and accept guests 24/7. But because of COVID-19, travel restrictions were put in place to control the further spread of the virus.

In line with that, Hotel Sogo, the largest hotel chain in the Philippines, utilized this pandemic as an opportunity for innovation. Hotel Sogo unveiled new measures to re-establish confidence in the hotel industry as they adapt to the “new normal” state.

Innovation as its finest. As part of their “So Clean, So Good, So Safe” campaign under its Sogo So Safe Program, concrete ways were made to increase its cleanliness standards to meet the new health and safety challenges brought on by this pandemic.

Take a look on their innovation during this post CoVid-19 giving their patrons a So Clean, So Good, So Safe stay.

Hotel Sogo’s Initiative in time of Pandemic

In this time of General Community Quarantine, a lot of industries have gone back to its operations and many of our fellow kababayans go to work almost every day. Thus, risking important factors in our daily lives –health and safety.

Hotel Sogo recently showed how they care to our kababayans as they gave free face shields to commuters along Hotel Sogo North Ave. branch.

“As we initiated in giving free face shields, we want to remind the people that their health and safety comes first in this time of pandemic. And with that, we are more than happy to promote that Hotel Sogo will be giving more free face shield among specific Hotel Sogo branches along EDSA”. Ms. Sue Geminiano, Hotel Sogo Marketing Manager said.

To continue in raising the awareness of wearing face shields and face masks, Hotel Sogo is giving away free COVID kit to its guests in the participating Hotel Sogo branches (Pasay Harrison, Pasay Rotonda, Guadalupe, EDSA-Cubao, North EDSA, and Bagong Barrio).

Guests who will have a bill total of 600 pesos and up will have a chance to get free Hotel Sogo face shields and face masks by simply coordinating with the front desk.

The use of face mask and face shield has been a must for commuters as mandated by the Department of Transportation (DOTr) last August 2020.
