Marriott initiative looks to light up Asia Pacific

This month Marriott International will light up some of its properties across the Asia Pacific to send a positive message during the challenging times of of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Last week, over 270 hotels across various cities and regions, from Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Saigon, Jakarta, Maldives, Mumbai and many more lit up their hotel rooms to the symbol of a smiley face as part of the Light for Hope initiative.

“In times of uncertainty one thing remains certain – we are in this together, and we will come out stronger”, said Craig S. Smith, Marriott International’s APAC group president.

“We are all awaiting the time when we can travel again, but until then we are following the guidance from local authorities and are dedicated to continue our support for the communities our hotels are in.”
