Eastern Communications x Marriott Manila
What's the first thing you checked after booking in a hotel? I always asked if there's a wifi connection and how strong it is. It is a must for everyone if you are active in social media. For me as a mom, since I checked on my kids and grandkids every now and then, when I am away. Wifi connection is life.
Eastern Communications and Marriott Manila recently celebrated their Strong Connection and partnership at an afternoon tea hosted at Marriott Manila’s Still Tea & Whisky Bar.
Eastern Communications is one of the country’s top premier telecommunications companies, trailblazing paths for business connectivity in strategic locations in Metro Manila, Metro Cebu, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, and Baguio.
Powered by Eastern Communications, Marriott Manila is a testimony to Easterns’ continued vision of providing the hospitality industry with innovative data services and faster, more reliable internet connection.
Creating Stronger Connections
Marriott Manila General Manager Bruce Winton lauded Eastern Communications as a connectivity partner, providing fast and reliable internet connections for their guests, restaurants, and events.
And the partnership can only grow stronger as Winton also detailed Marriott Manila’s latest projects and delicious dining offers for 2018 like Marriott Café’s Barrels of the Sea Seafood Buffet. Available on Fridays and Saturdays from 6:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., Barrels of the Sea treats guests to the freshest catch from huge barrels that they can have cooked to their taste. From tiger prawns, salmon, yellowfin tuna, live crabs, clams and more, seafood lovers will find this feast irresistible!
Sundays have also become even more delicious at Marriott Manila with delectable brunch and lunch offers. Available from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Marriott Café adds a tasty twist to their already hefty brunch menu as each diner is entitled to an add-on ala carte plate with an option to get 1, more or all of the 4 special dishes – a beef, fish, goose liver dish or dessert.
Meanwhile, Cru Steakhouse is calling all meat lovers to a steak fete to add salt and pepper to their Sunday! From 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Cru Sreakhouse is offering an unlimited serving of U.S. Certified Angus Roast Beef paired with a serving of salad or soup, 2 side dishes and a slice of the classic apple pie? Guests would be crazy not to book a table for this great Sunday Steak-day!
