Hilton Manila, Resorts World Manila’s leading sophisticated urban oasis, welcomes the coming Festive season with ‘Back to a Better Future: A Retro Christmas’ highlighted by the ceremonial lighting of its Christmas tree streamed online through the hotel’s official social media pages, and an ensemble of gourmet dining and luxury staycation experiences.
“We look forward to welcoming families and staycationers back to the hotel for the holidays with the recent easing of government restrictions,” shares Simon McGrath, hotel general manager, adding “we want to celebrate by bringing back positive memories of the joys of the past years through 90s inspired festive goodies and experiences, whilst creating new memories with the whole family this Festive Season.”
To officially welcome the holidays, McGrath was joined by guests of honor: Antonino Calixto, Pasay City Congressman; Imelda Calixto-Rubiano, Pasay City Mayor; Woodrow Maquiling, Jr., Assistant Secretary, Department of Tourism; and Beatrice Gomez, Miss Universe Philippines 2021, for the intimate lighting of the hotel’s Christmas Tree by the main lobby, following social distancing protocols. Guests were encouraged to join the fun online, where the hotel aired a ‘throwback’ variety show akin to 90s music television shows aptly called ‘HTV’ or ‘Hilton TV’ and hosted by Sam YG.
The Christmas tree lighting ceremony earmarks the start of the hotel’s innovative and decadent dining and room package offerings available from November 10 onwards.
