To formally welcome the Holiday season, Marco Polo Ortigas Manila recently held its ceremonial tree-lighting event in thanksgiving for a truly spectacular year. Themed “Sparkling Holidays,” the Hotel’s décor and promotional offers were inspired by its 5th Anniversary celebrations, which began in July this year.
In attendance were the Honourable Berna Romulo-Puyat, Secretary of the Department of Tourism, as well as Pasig City Vice Mayor Christian Bernardo and City Administrator Atty. Jeron Manzanero. Some of the Hotel’s guests, clients, and partners were also in attendance for the joyous event. “We come together this season not just as part of one community, but also as a city, and as a country. On behalf of the entire Marco Polo Ortigas Manila, we enjoin everyone to find more meaning this Holiday season in even the simplest acts of kindness,” said Mr. Frank Reichenbach, the Hotel’s General Manager.
This year, Marco Polo Ortigas Manila has received numerous accolades, making 2019 indeed a year to remember. It remains the only Philippine non-gaming hotel to have received the esteemed Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Award for three consecutive years. It was also recently named the World Travel Awards’ leading Philippine hotel for the second straight year, and it remains the Number One ranked hotel in Pasig City.
During the program, the Hotel also duly acknowledged this year’s community partners for their contributions in bringing value to people’s lives. Riversprings School in Pasig was the beneficiary of proceeds from last July’s charity dinner at Cucina, while the Ezer School of Naujan will be working closely with the Marco Polo Ortigas Manila for their sustainable livelihood program in Mindoro.
