Many hotels throughout the world celebrated the spirit of the Christmas season by giving back to their communities. The Courtyards by Marriott in Düsseldorf (Courtyard Düsseldorf Hafen, owned and managed by Hotel am Hafen Managementgessellschaft m.b.H., and Courtyard Düsseldorf Seestern, owned and managed by Starfish Düsseldorf Hotelbetriebsgesellschaft mbH) worked with their local partner, the “Kinderkrebsklinik Düsseldorf e.V.” to collect donations, give gifts and make wishes come true for children with cancer. Associates at Courtyard by Marriott and the Residence Inn Rio de Janeiro Barra da Tijuca created kits full of toys and clothing to donate to a group of children living in a local shelter. The Kochi Marriott Hotel hosted a Gingerbread house decorating party for kids staying at the Jana Seya Shishu Bhavan home. In London, the St. Pancras Ranaissance Hotel worked alongside C4WS Homeless Project to serve Christmas lunch and spend time with people that are homeless, vulnerable or in need. It is great to see so much joy and peace during this time of year!
