Yes, sometimes being an Interim Innkeeper can be a fun and glamorous job but other times... not so much. It can also entail a lot of housekeeping: cleaning toilets, making beds, ironing pillow cases.... not fun or glamorous! My current assignment is at the Cannon Beach Hotel and I am very lucky to have a fabulous housekeeping staff who does all of that! Great housekeepers are the unsung heroes of the hospitality industry and we are fortunate to have several working here.
This is Silvia giving a clean sweep to the lobby - she's a little dynamo. I wish I had her energy.
This is Lottie Bowechop our very competent "head housekeeper". Here she is early in the morning making out the task lists for each employee. No, she is not drinking two bottles of champagne before work - the Cannon Beach Hotel puts a complimentary bottle of bubbly in the room for each guest celebrating a special occasion. Nice touch,huh?
One of the things I do for the housekeeping staff is host the weekly employee meeting where we go over issues and plan for the upcoming week. This meeting was also a birthday party for two of the staff - just one little way to say "thank you" to everybody. Although I say THANK YOU everyday to the people who give a clean sweep to the hotel and help keep my job fun and glamorous, they are the best!
