From Corgis to Cocktails - the Waltham Abbey Marriott Hotel Celebrates the Diamond Jubilee and a very British Summer
Marriott International hotels across the United Kingdom are preparing to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and summer in style, highlighting the Best of Britain with fun and frivolous offerings for hotel guests and visitors.
Kicking off the summer-long festivities, the Waltham Abbey Marriott Hotel on Old Shire Lane, EN9 3LX together with other Marriott hotels across the UK, will be celebrating her Majesty the Queen's big day on Bank Holiday Monday 4th June by offering a complimentary Corgi cocktail in its hotel bar to anyone named Elizabeth or born in 1952*.
With Elizabeth being the most popular girls name of the last 200 years, Marriott is looking forward to honouring the Queen and celebrating the Jubilee with her namesakes across the country, which numbered 901,000 at last count.
The very British celebration will kick off from 1st June with all Marriott's UK hotel bar staff donning stylish Union Jack waistcoats and ties, the perfect attire for mixing Marriott's own signature cocktail to celebrate her Majesty - "The Corgi".
"The Corgi", created by head barman Roman Kerr at Grosvenor House, a JW Marriott Hotel is a refreshingly British blend of Hendricks Gin, elderflower liqueur, blackberries, raspberries, fresh lime and mint, served over ice in a tall glass.
Priced at £7.50, the Corgi will be available at the Waltham Abbey Marriott Hotel, as well as other Marriott hotel bars across the country.
Special limited-edition UK flag mini Pommery POP champagne bottles will also be offered at all hotels for £16 each to toast to the celebrations.
With our stylish and contemporary Tempo Bar and Thyme Restaurant, as well as our proximity to central London (just 10 minutes away from Loughton and Epping Underground Stations), the Waltham Abbey Marriott Hotel is the ideal place to get into the great British spirit this summer and enjoy expert hospitality, cracking cocktails and the most patriotic bar team in the country.
