Marriott International Lights Up Across Asia Pacific To Spark Hope

Marriott International across Asia Pacific will light up its properties to send a positive message, offering a ray of hope to the communities they are in for locals and travelers alike. The “Light for Hope” initiative looks to spread positivity amidst the challenging times the world is currently facing.

Over 270 hotels across various cities and regions, from Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Saigon, Jakarta, Maldives, Mumbai and many more have lit up their hotel rooms to the symbol of a smiley face, as seen from the façade of the hotel. The symbol was chosen to project a happy demeanor radiating positivity, with hopes that it brings a smile to the faces of everyone who sees it.


“In times of uncertainty one thing remains certain – we are in this together, and we will come out stronger”, said Craig S.
