Rogen Inn unveils its North Wing, new meeting rooms

The North Wing unveiled

To mark its first year, Rogen Inn is inaugurating the North Wing building today, adding another 126 room keys to the current 212 rooms to the inn's inventory. 

“We would like to share the good news to everyone that we are finally putting into operation the North Wing tower today. Rogen Inn has worked double time since the onset of 2023 to be able to fill the demands of the market for accommodations,” said Gene Bangayan, Rogen Inn chief operating office and general manager. 

From Rogen Inn’s opening in May 2022, the inn operated with a total of 212 De Luxe rooms in the South and West wings of the complex. The North Wing will have 126 De Luxe rooms but will initially offer 42 rooms on the second and third floors of the building to date. Once the North Wing is fully operational, Rogen Inn will run to its maximum capacity of 338 room keys. 

What makes the Rogen Inn set-up unique is that the new North Wing will have its own check-in counter and lobby since the building is detached from the main building where the two wings are. Two elevators will service the seven-floor building.

Simultaneously, the Rogen Inn Board Rooms will be formally inaugurated as well. 

While Rogen Inn has Rogen Hall that can be divided into three separate halls to accommodate functions of various sizes, the demand for additional conference and meeting facilities rose during the last quarter of 2022 leading up until today. This led the management to decide to convert the space allotted for the exercise facility into meeting facilities. 

The 7th floor of the West Wing is now the venue for a Business Center and seven meeting rooms and boardrooms that will comfortably accommodate 25 to 40 people. Each of the room will be named after the famed festivals of Region 11: The Kadayawan Room with 85 square meter of space; Padigosan Room, 85 square meters; Kadagayaan Room, 50sqm; Sambuokan Room, 32sqm; and with 16 square meters space each are the Bulawan Room, Gaginaway Room and the Kabasan Room. The entire floor offers free Wi-Fi connection to all the rooms.

“Building this dream and operating it through the pandemic was a wager and definitely a challenge for us in so many ways. It took years to plan this project and we laid the groundwork just before the pandemic struck. We didn’t only hurdle the challenges, we did it with flying colors,” shared Bangayan.

“This new wing is a testament of our unwavering commitment to exceed expectations and redefine the notion of the Davaoeno hospitality. We have spared no effort in ensuring that every detail, from the design and amenities in every room, reflects our dedication to creating an extraordinary stay for our guests,” she said. 

The unveiling ceremony will be led by Gene Bangayan and Ronald Bangayan with their honored guests, Councilors Myrna Ortiz, Councilor Ryan Alejandre, Bernie Al-ag, Department of Tourism Regional Director Tanya Tan, City Tourism Operations Officer Jennifer Romero, and friends and partners in the travel and tourism industry.
