Doubletree Hotel Boston/Westborough, MA
Doubletree Westborough’s Housekeeping Department had a fantastic International Housekeeping Week!
The team was treated to several meals as well as having breakfast in the restaurant, which is always a favorite event for them. The kitchen also prepared a delightful lunch with all the Spanish foods per team requests. A buffet breakfast greeted them mid-week outside the housekeeping office.
On day one the room attendants’ carts were decorated with balloons. On day two, everyone received a personalized water bottle thanking them for their service to our guests.
All associates were invited to join the Housekeeping team for a mid-afternoon “sundae break”. Our GM scooped ice cream and a wide array of delicious toppings were available.
On Friday, the Sales team treated Housekeeping to coffee and bagels. Each associate received a personalized thank you from the Director of Housekeeping, too. Colorful key chains were given to all and each Housekeeping associate received a small gift of appreciation.
Everyone agreed that the most fun event of the week was held after the luncheon. Last year the staff had so much fun with a mummy wrapping race (wrapping with toilet paper) and a race to fold blankets while blindfolded, that we decided to repeat the games. Our HRD joined in the fun and tried to fold a blanket blindfolded (she did not win ☺). The mummy wrapping is a hoot as bystanders cheer on their favorite team. The goal is for one team member to completely wrap another with toilet paper- mummy fashion. I have attached some photos of the fun. Looking forward to next year, too!
