The people at this company are a pleasure to work with and make it enjoyable to come to work. My co-workers, management team and owners were very social, knowledgeable and caring.It's a great environment, good people with a shared value system and one of the best platforms in the industry.
Manager (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – September 3, 2015
A typical work day with Accor hotel could be stressful. There was a large turn over in management, and housekeeping. The property had a lot of potential if upper level district management could control the quality of the property. The hardest part of my job was doing 16 hour shifts when an employee did not come to work. The most enjoyable part of my work place was my benefits and compensation for hard work.
Hotel Manager (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – July 29, 2015
It's a very good school for hotel management. You can learn great deal about daily operations, employees and customer relations, inventory and have a hands-on experience in everything that is vital for hotels. A lot of red tape and politics.
Constant education. Keeps you busy all the time.
Managers required to live on property. Poor advancement possibilities.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Brunswick, GA – November 19, 2015
Accor Hotels purchased the Motel 6 brand (600) properties for around $2B. I had been marketing hotel franchises and liked the Motel 6 product as a business investment. I wanted to learn more about the product so I joined the team as a property manager.
They have a very intense training program where once completed you can operate any hotel any where. They sent me to Brunswick, GA. I operated the worse property in the system along the east coast. It was rated number 16 out of 16! After spending ample time with the staff we were able to turn the property into number 3 only next to the two Disney properties.
When I went to request going into franchising my area manager flatly reused to let me go after the corporate office had approved my promotion. My manager said he needed more managers like me and said I should give him another year of service before he would approve my promotion. I informed him that I came to work for the company, not just him. I resigned for the position mentioned above
Manager (Current Employee) – Doral, FL – July 16, 2015
Theres no training, they expect you to already know how to do everything. A lot of gossiping unfriendly coworkers. If you're looking to grow, try another company. They'll try selling you all sorts of stories but its all lies
I love working with my clients. I enjoy meeting a wide diverse of people. Working with my clients of all race was a good experience that you can never forget. To help make their wedding very special is once in a life time.

Hotel Housekeeping Manager (Former Employee) – Times Square, NY – August 25, 2014
A typical day on property would be to go in open house. At this property I really did not learn as much, more as I put what I have already learnt in my time to use. I enjoyed working with all my co workers. I was able to build a great relationship with everyone, not only in my department. One of my hardest thing to deal with is the opendly favoritism that was played daily. For me that is the worst.
Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 18, 2014
Working here can be very stressful because everyone is out for themselves. management is never clear on anything they are to busy stabbing each other in the back to focus on the needs of the building let alone the employees. your hours are never guaranteed. most enjoyable part of the job is getting to meet celebrities.
free lunch, good benefits.
poor management in almost all of the departments. lower than average pay
FACILITY SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – January 4, 2015
Fast pace environment with great front office customer service, however, back of the house (engineering) the quality was not always a priority. Cutting cost and higher numbers were always more important then getting work done right.
free lunches, international environment, great employee interaction
