The LaQuinta Inn & Suites loves housekeepers so much they won a national award for it.
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts named LaQuinta Inn & Suites Bonita Springs/ Naples North as the winner of the annual housekeeper contest for the LaQuinta franchise locations of 600 hotels. The winning team of housekeepers celebrated the award with Visa gift cards and a party.
To earn the award, the hotel’s management had to show how they appreciated the housekeeping team by treating them to manicures, meals and tokens of appreciation such as flowers throughout International Housekeeping Week, Sept. 9-15.
“For some of our housekeepers it was their first mani-pedi ever,” said Randy Charran, general manager of the hotel. Mr. Charran washed housekeepers’ cars to show his appreciation. He also made a YouTube video showing housekeepers receiving roses, lunches, car washes, prizes and manicures and pedicures at a nearby salon.
“We always show our housekeepers how much we appreciate their hard work and dedication,” he said. “But it’s now a great honor to be recognized by Wyndham for our efforts.”
“Our philosophy is that if we take good care of our team, they will take great care of our guests,” said Fred Hirschovits, president and CEO of Twenty/Twenty Worldwide Hospitality, the Naples-based company that manages the LaQuinta. “This award is well-deserved,” he added. “Randy and his team exemplify the true spirit of hospitality.”
