Marco Polo Davao was in high spirits as they celebrated its 2015 Hotel of the Year, Bold Leadership Award from Marco Polo Hotels, through a Thanksgiving Event entitled “Celebration of Colors,” held at the hotel’s grand ballroom.
The event was led by Marco Polo Davao GM Dottie Würgler-Cronin and the hotel’s owning company, Halifax Davao Hotel Inc. (the hotel’s owning company), represented by its Senior Vice President Francis Ledesma.
“We are very honored to achieve this prestigious milestone, as this is a manifestation of our team’s hard-work, commitment and dedication to provide the best service quality and accommodation to our guests. This event is also our way of expressing our heartfelt gratitude to the people behind our success; which are clients, guests, associates, our owning company HDHI, and our management company, Marco Polo Hotels. Without their support, this achievement won’t be made possible,” said Würgler-Cronin.
Ledesma also expressed his gratitude on behalf of Halifax Davao Hotel Inc. to the MPD Team and their honored guests. He said, “Thank you Dottie for being steadfast and consistently at the helm of things. Thank you to all the officers and associates for the hard work and dedication. Thank you to all our valued guests and friends from the media who are truly part of the Marco Polo Davao family”.
This meaningful celebration also included the awarding of the 2015 Associate-of-the Year Award to the hotel’s Executive Secretary, Regina Francia Cueva; who is also fondly called as “Boodie” by her associates.
“Boodie has been a great asset to the team, and she should serve as an inspiration to the younger generation of associates,” the general manager said.
The evening was filled with great food, live music, raffle prizes and the much-awaited dance number by the hotel’s Associates of the Month who were also acknowledged during the celebration.
The hotel’s director of Sales and Marketing, Pearl Peralta-Maclang, also surprised the guests with a short video clip of Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s well-wishes to Marco Polo Davao.
