Facing each other – as if impressed by each other’s admirable architecture and functionality are the P78-M New City Hall Building and the Kew Hotel along JA Clarin Street. The handsome city hall funded out of the P2.3 Billion Bohol Earthquake Assistance fund is a stark contrast from the old, forbidding city hall of the previous administration. Elegance, meantime, is the right word for the newest hotel in the city – the Kew Hotel-belonging tot he Du Ek Sam group headed by its president/CEO Dr. Wilson Uy Du. The hotel prides itself of various amenities and class-A room facilities. The Du Ek Sam group is heavy into motorcycle trading (Kawasaki, Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha) and appliances (Sony, Samsung, Sharp, Condura, Devant, TCL, Carrier, GE, Haier, Koppel, LG and Panasonic). They have more than 175 branches nationwide.
