Hotel in Milan Takes Its Philanthropy Global

Whether Welcoming Guests or Creating Positive Change, the Milan Marriott Hotel Isn't Constrained by Geography

MILAN, ITALY--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2014) - Perhaps it's because hotels are in the business of helping guests, but the hospitality industry is uniquely positioned to make the world a better place for everyone. At least that's the attitude of the Milan Marriott Hotel, which has recently begun supporting victims of the devastating floods in Serbia. At this business hotel in Milan, it turns out, everyone from guests to those in need can count on a warm welcome.

Located among hotels near the Linate Airport in Milan, this property is accustomed to a global perspective. Visitors arrive from all over the world for the city's trademark fashion, business and culture, and the Milan Marriott knows how to make everyone feel right at home. With such cosmopolitan experience, it's no wonder that the property was among the first to step up and help the victims of Serbia's recent floods.

Drawing on her Macedonian roots, the hotel's housekeeping manager has assumed the role of liaison between this hotel in Milan's city centre and the Serbian embassy and Serbian Red Cross. Due to her efforts and Marriott's Spirit to Serve culture, the hotel has donated approximately 50 mattresses to those affected by the natural disaster.

Providing for those in need happens closer to home as well. The hotel collaborates with a local organization, Ronda della Carità to distribute blankets for homeless, vital personal-care items. The hotel gathers things like soap, conditioner, shampoo, body lotion, shower gel and hand wash, and its partner organization makes sure they get to the people who need them most.

Guests may arrive at this Milan lodging for its luxurious accommodations and top-notch service, but its commitment to helping others only enhances the experience. After all, making the community, whether it's directly next to the hotel or hundreds of miles away, a better place translates well to making the hotel an inviting destination for travelers.
