Thanksgiving Packages from Tribute Portfolio
Tribute Portfolio, Marriott International’s newest collection brand, is known to bring together characterful hotels with vibrant social scenes that create a sense of belonging. Beginning today, the independent hotel brand will offer a playful Friendsgiving package at participating U.S. hotels – reimagining traditional Thanksgiving celebrations with a hint of wit and whimsy among friends. The Tribute Portfolio brand’s Friendsgiving package offers overnight accommodations; a communal culinary experience with an unexpected twist on traditional Thanksgiving staples; throwback board games and classic cocktails that will set the stage for the music to play a little louder and friends to linger a little longer into the night. Each participating hotel will center its experience around locally-inspired culinary feast. Guests visiting The Wick in Hudson can expect menu items like turkey porchetta with giblet gravy; local heirloom tomato goat cheese tarts; crisp chicken liver pate; maple-roasted acorn with spicy pecans; and pumpkin gingerbread tiramisu with a mini candied apple and cider donuts. Guests of Noelle in Nashville will enjoy marinated spaghetti squash salad with pumpkin seeds and ricotta; whole roasted chicken with savory leek dressing; whipped sweet potatoes with brûlée marshmallow fluff; and pecan pie with lemon-mascarpone crème fraiche, as well as signature cocktails like Blade and Bow Kentucky Bourbon with amaro, Giffard Banane du Brésil and Saigon cinnamon syrup. From boutique resorts like Inn at Rancho Santa Fe in California, to urban locales such as Apollo Hotel in Amsterdam, each Tribute Portfolio hotel creates spaces that foster a sense of community. $229+/New York, $399+/Noelle in Nashville, TN, $563+/La Posada de Santa Fe in Santa Fe, NM; Through December 1st 2018; Book here
