Last November 4 via Facebook Live, all the Marriott hotels in the Philippines namely Manila Marriott, Sheraton Manila, Clark Marriott, Sheraton Manila Bay, and Courtyard by Marriott Iloilo have united for another simultaneous virtual Christmas tree lighting. Once again, host KC Montero livened up the event while the executives of each hotel gave a glimpse of their exclusive offers for the holidays such as their Christmas hampers, festive treats, feast packages, dining, and staycations promotions. Santa also made an appearance to greet everyone who’s tuning in. Adding to the excitement are staycation vouchers from all participating hotels given away to the viewers.
Apart from the festivities, all five hotels continue to give back to the community. Manila Marriott, Sheraton Manila, and Courtyard by Marriott Iloilo curate a Charity Hamper—a plush robe, two pairs of indoor slippers, and a towel set complete with a tote bag. The proceeds from this initiative will help provide Noche Buena for families from Save the Children Philippines. In addition, Goeran Soelter, General Manager of Clark Marriott and the Chairman of the Marriott Business Council Philippines invite everyone to join Run to Give, the annual virtual charity run that aims to raise funds for the Marriott Associate Welfare Fund and the said beneficiary.
Apart from Save the Children, Courtyard Iloilo has partnered with SOS Children’s Village and has opened its doors as a drop-off point for donations for more than 100 children in the community. Meanwhile, Sheraton Manila Bay has partnered with World Wide Fund where for every purchase of their Sheraton Luxury Hamper you get to adopt a Signature Panda Plushie and support the organization’s nature conservation projects. They also have Plantable Cards of Care embedded with seed in which all the proceeds will go to Barangay 699 Children Fund and Aurora Quezon Elementary School, and lastly the Sheraton CommuniTREE, a tree-planting project where donations go to their reforestation and biodiversity efforts.
From the exciting offers to charitable initiatives, the excitement did not stop there as they announce three new Marriott properties that are set to open next year—The Westin Manila Sonata Place in Ortigas, Sheraton Cebu Mactan, and Four Points by Sheraton Puerto Princesa Palawan.
