MEXICO CITY, June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The JW Marriott Hotel Mexico City has a lot to be proud of.
The recently renovated, five-star Mexico City hotel has just been named the recipient of the J.W. Marriott Jr. Diversity Excellence Award. The Marriott honor is the highest form of recognition for a business unit, corporate department or individual that demonstrates excellence in promoting diversity and building an environment of inclusion for all.
"Our team members pour their hearts and souls into offering our guests first-class services and thoughtful amenities in warm, welcoming surroundings," said Clavel Garibay, Director of Sales and Marketing. "We are immeasurably grateful to be recognized for exceeding the high standards already set forth by the JW Marriott brand and are committed to promoting respect for all."
The Mexico City luxury hotel wants to celebrate its passion for diversity and inclusiveness while commemorating upcoming Mexico City Gay Pride festivities with a special package that affords LGBT travelers exclusive perks during their stay. The Pride and Joy Couples Package offers deluxe accommodations during weekends in a recently renovated luxury room from $359 per night plus breakfast for two at Xanat Bistro and Terrace. The hotel makes Mexico City gay travel even more special with a complimentary bottle of champagne upon arrival and late check-out privileges after all of the pride events wrap up. Access to the Executive Lounge.
Whether guests participate in the June 28, 2014, parade that marches down Paseo de la Reforma to the city's largest square or partake in the many parties and events at local bars and nightclubs, they will find a well-appointed one-bedroom suite to relax and slumber.
Additional luxuries in the Executive Lounge include a complimentary continental breakfast, midday snacks, hors d'oeuvres and desserts in the evening and a late-night snack.
Authentic Mexican cuisine at Xanat Bistro & Terrace awaits early risers who crave a hearty breakfast. The restaurant's talented chef specializes in using national ingredients while putting a modern twist on traditional dishes.
A day of pride deserves hours of pampering, so guests taking advantage of the special Couples Package can use their 10-percent discount on spa treatments including facials, manicures, massages and waxings. The facility also houses a steam room for the ultimate relaxation and detoxification.
Before welcoming guests for the annual Pride celebration, hotel staff members are expected to attend the LGBT Confex business conference in Puerto Vallarta on June 12-14, 2014. It will be the third year associates have participated in the event that focuses on business interactions with the LGBT community. American Express, IBM and American Airlines are among businesses that have been involved with the conference in past years.
The JW Marriott Mexico City leadership fosters a sense of belonging and inclusion among its associates, who then go the extra mile to cater to the diverse needs of guests. Staff members at Mexico City luxury hotel are involved with "ONE," Marriott's LGBT organization. In recent years, team members have been given the day off to participate in Mexican Pride Month and have performed the play "A Christmas Carol" to educate associates on embracing differences.
"We're always looking for ways to make diversity and inclusion fun," says Laura Barbieri, director of human resources. "We believe our hotel plays an important role in setting an example for the Mexican community."
It's that same community that welcomes LGBT travelers with the Pride and Joy Couples Package, valid Thursday through Sunday until Dec. 31, 2014. Visitors can book the deal online or by calling 1-800-228-9290 and using promotional code 4LG.
