Yesterday, Starwood Hotels & Resorts celebrated Iftar with taxi drivers across Qatar/Doha, as part of its ongoing commitment to the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Cab drivers in Doha celebrate [].jpgFor the sixth year running, Starwood’s ‘Iftar for Cabs’ campaign brought more than 40 of its hotels, including The St. Regis Doha, across the region together for a worthy cause. During the hour of Iftar, packs containing food and beverages were distributed to cab drivers and Starwood’s partner-drivers at the main entrance of each hotel. Catering teams at each hotel prepared Iftar packs which included a diverse selection of food and beverage items. Associates from across various departments within the hotels, including Catering, Administration and Guest Services joined forces to bring the ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative to life.

The ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative – ideated by Starwood Hotels & Resorts – has been running since 2010 and has since become an annual tradition for many cab drivers throughout the region. The initiative has been widely appreciated by its hotel owners, the community and local transport authorities.
