Marco Polo Davao was in high spirits in April as they celebrated their 2015 Hotel of the Year, Bold Leadership Award from Marco Polo Hotels through a Thanksgiving event entitled: “A Celebration of Colors,” held in their Marco Polo Ballroom.
The event was led by Marco Polo Davao General Manager Ms. Dottie V. Würgler-Cronin and the hotel’s owning company, Halifax Davao Hotel, Inc, represented by its Senior Vice- President, Francis R. Ledesma.
“We are very honoured 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,” said Ms. Würgler-Cronin. “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.”
Mr. Francis R. Ledesma also expressed his gratitude on behalf of Halifax Davao Hotel, Inc. to the Marco Polo Davao team and their honoured guests: “Thank you, Dottie, for being steadfast and consistently at the helm of things. Thank you to all the officers and associates for their 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, Ms. Regina Francia Cueva; who is also fondly known as “Boodie” by her fellow associates. “Boodie has been a great asset to the team and she should serve as an inspiration to the younger generation of associates” said General Manager Würgler-Cronin.
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, Ms. Pearl Peralta-Maclang, also surprised guests with a short video of Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s well wishes to Marco Polo Davao.
