LIVERPOOL, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2015) - The holiday season has been known to inspire all manner of generosity, and nowhere was the spirit of goodwill more alive -- or more delicious -- this year than at the Liverpool Marriott Hotel City Centre. Whether visitors were celebrating Christmas parties or in town on business, this Liverpool hotel expressed its gratitude to its most loyal guests by presenting them with a variety of gifts, including festive holiday hampers packed with epicurean delights.

The idea for the hampers began with Executive Chef Oliver Murfitt, who created a one-of-a-kind Christmas-pudding cheesecake for the hotel's holiday party nights. (This signature offering arose after Chef Murfitt and the Food & Beverage Services Manager couldn't decide between serving a Christmas pudding or a cheesecake and so decided to blend the two.) Murfitt parleyed the dessert into Christmas-pudding-cream-filled chocolate profiteroles and a Christmas-pudding fudge, which he packed into the hampers along with chocolate-orange shortbread and panettone made from chocolate and orange bread. The resulting flavours made a unique holiday offering, which simultaneously honoured tradition while expressing the hotel's trademark culinary ingenuity.

The hampers were hand-delivered throughout December to regular guests of this 4-star hotel in Liverpool, as well as to those who'd repeatedly booked large events at the property. Loyal guests also received a diffuser with a signature Aroma Works oil, a 30-minute spa treatment, a thermal mug and a personalised mug listing their drink preferences.

While Christmas inspired these thoughtful gifts, it's not the only time of year the hotel reaches out to its best customers. Travellers who regularly select this property among hotels in Central Liverpool are also recognised during Global Appreciation Week.

"It's refreshing to be part of a company that puts so much thought into customer relations," said Sales Researcher Lisa Gregory. "What in essence is a small expression of thanks becomes an impressive gesture of gratitude because each gift is so personalised for the customer and created by our chefs."

That sense of personal attention is a hallmark not just of the holidays, but of the property itself during all 365 days of the year.
