I was one of those who wasn't able to celebrate the 4th of July this year unlike the previous years when I still worked for a BPO and the 4th of July was a holiday for me as well. Thankfully, Marriott came in the picture and gave me a 4th of July that I would not forget. As they say, when something is so good, we don't celebrate it for just one day. We celebrate for one whole month.
Marriott Hotel Manila brings the festivities closer to home by ringing in the "All American, All Good" food festival. Definitely, this is something that foodies and Fil-Americans would be delighted to hear. They will not only serve classic American dishes, they will also serve dishes served with a twist.
From July 9-31, dinners from Sundays to Thursdays will always be a delight because Marriott Café will offer an extensive American buffet that will definitely satisfy even the most demanding American sized tummy.
Some of the dishes that will be featured would be artisan American cheese paired with breads and cold cuts. They also have something for meat lovers such as rib eye steaks and for those who love their sweets, there's more than several varieties of cupcakes and cakes to choose from. All these and more are available for only P1,950 nett.
Other offers include the following below:
