The JW Marriott Hotel Kuwait City, Courtyard by Marriott Hotel Kuwait City, Residence Inn by Marriott Kuwait and Arraya Ballroom managed by Marriott International participated in the Earth Hour 2017 - a global environmental event that took place on March 25 - to raise awareness about the importance of protecting the environment for now and generations to come. All the four properties have successfully observed Earth Hour 2017 by taking energy-saving measures for one full hour from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm, further underscoring the company’s international commitment to environmental sustainability.
During the event, all Marriott Hotels in Kuwait dimmed lights in all public areas, restaurants and outside the buildings. In addition, they also turned off most of the lighting in operation areas. Moreover, guests were invited to participate in this global initiative by minimizing electric usage to as low as possible and using the bed sheet re-use cards to reduce laundry.
Restaurants at the JW Marriott Kuwait, especially Crossroads Restaurant and Terrace Grill Restaurant, celebrated the Earth Hour 2017 by hosting candle-lit dinners in a very special ambience.
“We are honored to be part of such a global movement and join millions of people around the world in turning off lights to show our support and lower our impact on the environment” said George Aoun, Cluster General Manager at Marriott Hotels in Kuwait. “This initiative also falls in line with our ongoing spirit to serve environmental and sustainability programs,” Aoun added.
