Recently, I was awarded a Spirit Award from Hilton Worldwide. First, and foremost, I want to sincerely thank those who chose to pick me for this award. What an honor. I was totally caught off guard by this!
My General Manager, Corey Dooley, mentioned to me months ago that he had nominated me for an award of some sort. I was so pleased back when he told me, but never gave it another thought. I thought someone must have won it, and you know the saying of those movie stars…”It was just nice to be nominated” was what I had told my sister, Kathy. We had a great laugh and then…time just passed.
The experience was wonderful. The phone call in Corey’s office….the package they sent along…my pin…my plaque…my check…everything! It meant a great deal to me!
I will say…..the guests are my most favorite part of my job! The people connection. Making them feel welcome. Making them feel that our Homewood Suites “is” their home! Especially those who are either longterm or weekly visitors. Hotels can be cold and boring to be in. It truly is what the staff does, that makes all the difference!
