Looking back, we are very grateful and thankful for all the wonderful things that happened at Marco Polo Hotel this 2012. Despite all the doom and gloom news of the end of the world as per the Mayan calendar (which we have to admit had us a little worried.... nah) and continuing financial crisis (seriously worried) , we can proudly say, we survived and with flying colors.
Early this year, both bands of our two very happening dance clubs competed for top spot at the Strongbow Battle of the Bands. Ten bands short listed from different clubs in Dubai competing for the grand prize. Now how amazing is it that the final two bands should come from Marco Polo Hotel.

The Damage Band of El Rancho (Sri Lankan Band) and The Resound Band of Kitakits Kafe & Klubb (Filipino Band) battled it out at the finals. That was one great night in July for Marco Polo Hotel.

Earlier in May, Marco Polo Hotel was all a jitter too as it was proclaimed runner up in the Middle East Hotel Awards for Best IT Integration, being the first hotel to have a Tech bar in all guestrooms. A Tech bar is a section across the minibar where you can purchase gadget accessories that you may require, all in the comfort of your room.

Just as the year was ending, we get great news from our friends at Whats On. Our Chinese Restaurant , Chopstix won as Favorite Chinese Restaurant at the Whats On Awards 2012. Celebration was aplenty as we marveled at this wonderful affirmation.
