STICKING to the tradition of using red as the Cebu City Marriott Hotel Color, guests can catch a glimpse of the majestic red and gold Christmas tree that encompasses Marriot’s values of being dynamic, thoughtful and polished. The tree also stands for family, said Frances Alfafara, Marketing Communications Manager. “Take care of your associates and the associates will take care of your guests, and they will keep coming back and remember us as their second home,” she added.
The ceremonial lighting was done by Cebu City Marriott Hotel Director of Sales & Marketing Cleofe Albiso, Cebu Marriott Director of Finance Joe Xavier Fijardo, Cebu Marriott Director of Engineering Rodrigo Enriquez, Cebu Marriott Director of Human Resources Bobot Codoy and Cebu Marriott Director of Services Harry Dale Seno.
Marriot hosted its annual lighting ceremony with a musical performance by renowned concert pianist Madame Ingrid Sala Santamaria. She shared her music as a legacy of Cebu, together with Celestial Voices Chorale, which took us back in time of the classical music the nutcracker and music of Tchaikovsky being timeless, classic and elegant. It’s truly a Merry Marriott Christmas for everyone. (Catherine Zeta Bayang, text, & Daniela Grace Arcenal, photo/USJ-R Communication interns)
