ROME, ITALY--(Marketwired - Jun 9, 2016) -  At the Rome Marriott Park Hotel, hospitality goes beyond guest rooms and amenities. It incorporates the entire community. Just as hotel associates demonstrate tireless dedication to creating a positive guest experience, so too do they work to make a positive impact in their surrounding neighborhood. This holistic approach to hospitality not only distinguishes these accommodations in Rome, it also creates ripples of positive change that affect everyone from guests to those living in the neighborhood.

While the hotel has long invested in its community, its latest project has impacted hundreds of people. During May 2016, hotel associates distributed 500 new pillows to 10 nearby organizations helping underserved populations ranging from foster children to families staying in shelters.

"Giving back to our community is a point of principle for all of our associates," explains Resident Manager Onofrio Zaccaro. "We feel a strong need to put into practice Marriott's culture of social responsibility, and we are always looking for meaningful ways to do so."

The pillow project is, accordingly, one of many charitable enterprises the hotel has overseen in past years. It has previously collaborated with a local church to serve disadvantaged parishioners, and it donates all of its lost-and-found items to Caritas, a local charitable organization.

For guests arriving at this luxury hotel near the Rome airport, the property's commitment to its community may not be immediately visible, but it informs the service they encounter during their stay. Hospitality, after all, is not an isolated experience but a way of life. And when visitors partake of a spa treatment, dine at one of the hotel's acclaimed restaurants or simply check in to an elegantly appointed guest room, they interact with the very people who live by a code that celebrates service in all its forms. That is something that provides for a stay that feels exceptional even after you checkout.
