Capitol Hill Hotel Hosts Free Photo With Santa for Local Children

The Courtyard Washington Capitol Hill/Navy Yard Creates Its Own Miracle on L Street SE With Treats, Toys and St. Nick

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2014) - The Courtyard Washington Capitol Hill/Navy Yard is capturing the spirit of the season by partnering with the local Waterfront Church, and inviting children to its Pictures With Santa event on December 12, 2014 from 5 to 9 p.m. With photographs, cookies and a toy drive benefiting the DC Child and Family Services Agency, visitors will have the chance to give a gift and receive a complimentary photo.

Guests will have no trouble finding Santa, thanks to the hotel's convenient location near the Washington, D.C. Metro. As visitors enter the new lobby with its rich wood paneling, low-slung furniture and vibrant blues and ambers, the anticipation builds until at last they come face-to-face with jolly old St. Nick himself.

Children can capture the encounter with a complimentary photograph before sampling some of the Christmas cookies and hot cocoa offered as a courtesy of the hotel and Waterfront Church. And for added holiday fun, there are bounce houses specially provided for this event.

While "Pictures With Santa" presents an ideal opportunity for children to think about what they want for Christmas, these accommodations near Capitol Hill also work to help improve the welfare of the community's children in foster care. The hotel is proud to sponsor a toy drive this month to benefit the DC Child and Family Services Agency. The organization serves 3,000 children and youth in the District's child-protective system.

Like other Marriott hotels in Washington, D.C., this property is committed to giving back to its community, whether that's by hosting a free holiday event or by collecting donations to make the season a little brighter for those in need. As one of the premier hotels near the Washington, D.C. metro, the property enables travelers from all over the world to celebrate in their home-away-from home. And it's that spirit of goodwill that makes the season -- and the hotel -- so special.
