Christmas at Marriott has officially begun!

Marriott’s General Manager Bruce Winton, joined by some kids of their partner beneficiary Philippine School of the Deaf, lit up the stunning 20-ft high Christmas tree. It signaled the opening of the most wonderful time of the year in the hotel.

The hotel’s annual tradition of welcoming the festive season with a Christmas Tree Lighting was a joyous occasion filled with dazzling surprises and treats. Opening the night is a performance from the main cast of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, a must-see family musical at Resorts World Manila.

Setting the festive mood even higher are enchanting carols from Colegio de Santa Rosa’s Himig Roseña.

Aside from the decked and glittering exteriors and interiors, Marriott embodies the true spirit of Christmas which is all about giving. They launched their Spirit to Serve charity initiatives of raising funds for their partner foundation, Philippine School for the Deaf. Anyone can take part and be a Santa this season either from purchasing the “Billy’s Hat” for Php 400 each that comes in four different designs or indulging in their 6-course 12 Hands Menu for Php 3,500 at Cru Steakhouse.
