Housekeeping Week at Hilton Garden Inn Richmond Downtown.

Hilton Garden Inn Richmond Downtown has enjoyed International Housekeeping Week so far. Here are a few of the activities to date, and a few pictures. Our Housekeeping team is very excited and feels appreciated.

Monday – Breakfast for the Housekeeping team with the Red Carpet rolled out, and a welcome from the rest of the hotel team! T-shirts provided for all Housekeeping team members.

Tuesday – Lunch with the GM – offsite at a top local restaurant. A nice 5-block walk helped work off the meal, but the sight in the city of the excited team in their bright blue t-shirts was special.
Wednesday – Engineering – popsicles
Thursday – The A&G team, including the GM, delivered coffee and donuts to the team. * Picture below, afternoon break from the F&B Team.
Friday – Sales team providing pastries and fruit.

Lastly, we paired each manager up with a member of the Housekeeping Department to help them clean, or just assist with their job for an hour or so — it could be a room attendant, lobby attendant, or laundry attendant. *Picture below of the GM cleaning a toilet.

DeAnna Willis/HR Manager says

This was a great week for Housekeeping and the hotel overall!! The Housekeeping/Laundry Department felt appreciated and they also appreciated everyone’s participation. In fact, the Housekeeping/Laundry Department provided each Department Manager with a certificate of appreciation at the end of the week!! This was definitely a “feel good” time in Richmond!!!
