Ensuring and maintaining the highest quality in a hotel for its guests. A Duty Manager is linked to all the departments in a hotel: rooms division, the front desk, restaurant services, guest relations, human resources, sales, finance, general management, etc.

YOUR FAVORITE TIME AND PLACE AT THE HOTEL:

Talking with the guests at the pool. That’s when I can ask them how their stay is and let them give me their impression.

 

THREE THINGS YOU LOVE ABOUT MIAMI: 

  • The beaches are beautiful, the water is clean and it’s a fun-filled city
  • There’s never a day when you don’t have a musical, sporting or cultural event.
  • The many different cultures who live in the city let you work, go out with and meet people from all over the world!
