Hotels Give Free Iftar to Cabbies
Taxi drivers who dropped off or picked up passengers at the Westin Dubai and Le Meridien Mina Seyahi received a surprise last night (Tuesday 9 August). The hotels were among the 30-plus regional members of the Starwood group of hotels to participate in the Iftar for Cabs initiative, and cabbies who drove through the main entrance of each hotel during iftar hour were given a special pack of food and beverages by hotel staff. More than 200 packs were given out at the Westin alone.
This is the initiative’s second year and it brings together employees from all departments within the hotels, including catering, administration and guest services. A nice example of the Ramadan spirit of giving.
