The Leyte Park Hotel is believed to be part of the ill-gotten wealth of the Marcos family. In 1987, the property was sequestered by the government under former President Corazon Aquino’s term.
There is an ongoing legal battle between the Provincial Government of Leyte and the City Government regarding the auctioning of the government-owned hotel. About nine real properties of LPH are included in the supposed auction sale by City Government which covers 61,322 square meters.
