Earlier this week we honored a member of our Housekeeping and Laundry Team, Andrea Mendoza, as we recognized her as our Part-Time Employee of the Month for September.
As usual, we walked into where she was to surprise her with this honor, and you can see that she was duly surprised, and delighted as well.
During the month of September our housekeeping team was short a few staff members, and whenever Megan, our Executive Housekeeper would ask Andrea if she could fill in the answer was always a quick and emphatic "yes" -- we are so appreciative of her great teamwork, excellent can-do spirit, and high-quality work.
Here you see (above and below) photos of the team members who were gathered having lunch in our staff break room. They were smiling in agreement with all of the commentary that was made about Andrea's excellent work and terrific attitude.
While few of our guests will get to meet the hard-working members of our Housekeeping Team, they are truly the backbone of the high marks we always receive for the cleanliness of the Hawthorne Hotel. Here is Andrea surrounded by her fellow teammates who were working this week when we presented this award to her.
Congratulations, Andrea! We so appreciate everything you do for us, and for our guests!!
I hope you will join me in offering your own congratulations to Andrea.
Many thanks to Kayleigh M for her assistance with the photos.
