The ceremonial tree lighting event at the Sheraton Manila Bay was organized by the Mayor of Manila, Francisco “Isko” Moreno Domagoso, and the Vice Mayor of Manila, Dr. Honey Lacuna-Pangan, moderated under the direction of the general manager of the hotel, Richard Masselin. The event coincided with the Christmas lighting activities of other Marriott properties, including the Manila Marriott Hotel, Sheraton Manila Hotel, Clark Marriott Hotel and the Courtyard by Marriott Iloilo, and was streamed live on Facebook. The community choir, the hotel’s singing ambassadors, serenaded the attending staff with classic Christmas carols, while the hotel’s culinary team prepared a festive buffet from a ham carving station to holiday-inspired desserts.

Inspired by this year’s “Welcome Home for Christmas” theme, the 12-foot Mabuhay Jeepney at the Sheraton Manila Bay symbolizes the warmth of home and the promise of travel. The Sheraton Manila Bay “Mabuhay Jeepney” has vintage luggage on the jeep, while a voluntary front liner sits in the front seat – a subtle homage to our modern heroes. A variety of bronze, white, green, red, and gold decorations adorn the lobby’s sideboard, while the gingerbread house, designed in a similar fashion, was filled with holiday baskets and homemade goodies.

In keeping with the spirit of giving back to the community, Sheraton Manila Bay created the Cards of Care. Each pack contains 12 pieces of Christmas cards with a scannable Spotify Christmas playlist and reusable packaging available for Php 200 net per pack. Proceeds from sales of care cards will be donated to Aurora Quezon Elementary School and the Charity Fund for the benefit of the Children of Barangay 699. The hotel’s promise to donate 500 teaching materials was accepted by Edwin “Amo” Chan, Chairman of Barangay 699.
