The Ascott Limited Philippines ushers the festive season with a back-to-back celebration for its properties’ tree lighting ceremonies, Ascott BGC Manila’s five-year and Citadines Bay City Manila’s one-year milestone anniversaries.
Both properties have been continuously providing travelers the comforts and little lavishes that make Ascott their home of choice away from home. Each stood strong among the competition in their respective areas with Ascott BGC Manila being announced the Philippines’ Leading Serviced Apartments 2019 by World Travel Awards and Citadines Bay City Manila ranking the best hotel in Pasay and best value hotel in Luzon in TripAdvisor.
“I am proud of the success of Ascott in the country with the aspiration of providing a way away from home. I thank my colleagues as they help bring this vision to life and our guests in embracing the Ascott lifestyle.”, said Daniel Wee, Country General Manager of The Ascott Limited Philippines.
To round out the celebration and express appreciation to the community, a donation was made to the official beneficiary of Ascott – Gawad Kalinga. Ascott has been supporting the organization for the past four years in helping the community feed 700 kids via Kusina ng Kalinga. The strong relationship between Ascott and Gawad Kalinga gives meaning to Ascott’s credo— “Building People, Building Community”.
To date, four operational properties are in Makati City central, namely Ascott Makati, Somerset Millennium Makati, Somerset Olympia Makati and Citadines Salcedo Makati; while Ascott Bonifacio Global City Manila, Somerset Alabang Manila, Citadines Millenium Ortigas Manila, Citadines Bay City Manila, and Citadines Cebu City are the first Ascott properties in Taguig, Muntinlupa, Ortigas, Pasay, and Cebu respectively.
