Above and Beyond: Ismail’s Story

Marriott Al fosan Abu Dhabi UAE

Associates of Marriott International know how special it is for families to choose to spend holidays at their hotel.

In honor of Eid al-Adha, associates from the Marriott Hotel Al Forsan in Abu Dhabi wanted to ensure the guests celebrating the holiday were wowed as soon as they checked in to the hotel. One associate, Ismail, decided to go the extra mile and dress in customary-style clothing in celebration of Eid al-Adha, while handing out balloons to children as they arrived. He also served guests traditional Arabic coffee and dates with the help of Chef Hamid.

While the holiday made hotel check-in especially busy, Ismail’s efforts to welcome guests and make sure their holiday was memorable right from the start is just one of many examples of how Marriott International associates go above and beyond for their guests.
