Elizabeth Buchanan Named Employee of the Month

This week we presented the Full-time Employee of the Month Award for February to Elizabeth Buchanan. Elizabeth is part of our Front Desk Team, working as an Associate there for Lucie Ogeron, the Front Office Manager.  It was a well-deserved award.

Almost to prove the point, this morning when I first arrived at work a friend of mine outside the hotel called to tell me he had made a reservation the evening before for a friend who was coming to town the next day.  He went on and on about how terrific is was dealing with someone as friendly, yet professional, as Elizabeth was in this encounter.

Congratulations, Elizabeth!

Lots of goodies for the recipient of this award, including a day off with pay!

I hope you enjoy learning about another one of our excellent team members here at the Hawthorne Hotel.



  1. Congrats, Elizabeth. You've assisted me on many occasions and you have always been of tremendous service to me and everyone else. Your patience and grace makes you a standout!

  2. Congratulations to Elizabeth! I know that I've been fortunate to have been helped by her at the Front Desk from time to time on my various trips to the Hawthorne and she has always been fantastic!

    Enjoy you day off with pay, Elizabeth, you totally deserve it!
