MALLBERRY SOARS HIGH IN 2019
During an interview, Leandicho also said 2019 was very promising year for Mallberry as it also soared high as far as hotel accommodation.

“Our hotel guests come from all over the Philippines and even abroad. We have a lot of foreigners who stayed here in 2019 and with that we are very thankful for their patronage. We hope that for this year they will also come back and still choose to stay with us.”
The hotel manager also added that a lot of construction moguls, and executives stayed at Mallberry in the past years especially during the start of ‘construction boom’ in the city in the past few years.
