Microtel by Wyndham Philippines becomes first hotel group to achieve CHA certification
The Philippine hospitality landscape got a significant boost recently when Microtel by Wyndham® became the first hotel group in the country to earn the Certified Hotel Administrator (CHA) designation for 14 of its hotel managers and corporate officers, from the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (AHLEI).
The accomplishment raises the bar for quality standards at Microtel by Wyndham in the Philippines. Microtel Inns & Suites (Pilipinas), Inc. (MISPI) is the master franchise holder of Microtel by Wyndham, the largest international-brand hotel network in the country with 13 locations in key business and tourist hubs, with more planned soon.
Widely recognized as the preeminent leader in hospitality certification, the AHLEI certifies hospitality professionals in all facets of the industry. The CHA is the most prestigious professional certification available to hotel general managers and hospitality executives around the world.
According to the AHLEI, the CHA Certification covers “mastery of various competencies derived from six key areas of knowledge in combination with on-the-job hospitality work experience.” Key areas of testing are: Financial Management, Sales and Marketing, Leadership Management, Human Resources Management, Rooms Management, and Food and Beverage Management.
Ed Kastli, vice president of International Sales for AHLEI, said, “To have 14 executives from one organization earn this designation is a testament to the high priority that you place on professional development and on advancing the status of the hospitality industry in the Philippines.”
Earning the CHA was a special goal for MISPI president and CEO Jose Mari del Rosario, who encouraged the management team to seek the certification. “We wanted to level up our profession and raise the standards of our systems,” he enthused. “Going through the CHA course, given by the best hospitality training organization in the world, is our way of saying we care about giving our guests the international-quality standard of service they deserve.”
Microtel by Wyndham, a member of the international Wyndham Hotel Group, pioneered the no-frills hotel concept in the Philippines that targets the mid-market. Its approach is back-to-basics and focuses on providing consistently clean, comfortable, and secure accommodations at value rates.

Game changer: Microtel’s Del Rosario awarded Industry Entrepreneur at the
2015 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Philippines
For his game-changing role in the hospitality industry, Jose Mari Del Rosario, President and CEO of Microtel Inns & Suites (Pilipinas), Inc. (MISPI), was honored with the Industry Entrepreneur 2015 award in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2015 Philippines.
The theme for the 2015 program was “Game Changers.” Mr. Cirilo P. Noel, Chairman & President of SGV Foundation, Inc. said that for our country’s progress to be sustainable, “we need more visionary entrepreneurs who bring revolutionary ideas, services and processes to the table. Game changers, who through their desire to bring about positive transformation, continually challenge conventions and create new paradigms that drive social and economic development.”
Del Rosario was credited for developing a new category of hotel accommodations in the Philippines. He brought the Microtel hotel brand from the United States to the Philippines in 1998. Starting in provincial locations, it filled a void in decent, secure guestrooms where there was none. Even today, Microtel by Wyndham (as it is now more popularly known), is the only international brand hotel in most of its locations.
Del Rosario says, “To be a game changer, one must do things differently. Your business model must stand out.” Microtel’s entry changed the landscape of the mid-market segment of the hotel industry by offering no-frills, value-for-money accommodations that are of international standards infused with Filipino hospitality, with a promise to consistently deliver great guest satisfaction. Today, there are 13 Microtel by Wyndham hotels in very strategic locations throughout the Philippines.”
The EY Entrepreneur of the Year Philippines is a program of the SGV Foundation, Inc.
This global program was launched in the Philippines in 2003. It was first introduced in the United States in 1986 by professional services firm Ernst & Young to recognize the achievements of outstanding entrepreneurs within successful, growing and dynamic businesses. The program currently runs in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries.
