Sales (Former Employee) – Raleigh-Durham, NC – January 28, 2017
I was a manager at Cambria Suites for 2 years. The Carolina Hotels (owners of the hotel) do not have prior hospitality experience and have no idea how to run a hotel. HP Hotels (management group) does their best to keep things running smoothly, but they are not allotted the budget needed for maintenance, updates, adequate staffing, etc.There is no healthcare or 401K offered. There is always high turnover, drama with the front desk and housekeeping staff, and shortcuts taken with the restaurant/catering. You have to do something pretty significant to get fired and they are great about working with your schedule and family needs. This would be a great place for someone just starting in the hotel industry to get a sense of inner workings, but not somewhere I would recommend for a long-term career.
Management (Current Employee) – Cartersville, GA – August 24, 2017
I have worked for one of Hp Hotels property for a number of years and I have never encountered any issues. Between the CEO, the AVP'S, Sales Leaders, Human Resources and the Revenue team you will find the most down to earth and kind people who put forth every effort to ensure each property has it's full support. They allow you to work at a comfortable pace, not too pushy, above average compensation and best of all the opportunity to advance is real! The most enjoyable part of my job for me is of course the ability to engage in the wonderful world of Hospitality and HP totally allows you to focus more on guest services than being boggled down with ridiculous loads of paperwork. Don't get me wrong there will be paperwork but 1) it all makes sense and 2) it all makes sense!!! I am on year number 6 (small break in between) but I could not be happier. I have worked with many other management companies before this one and let me tell you I'd take HP any day of the week.
corporate support, great compensation, opportunity to succeed
Front desk (Former Employee) – Morrisville, NC – May 31, 2017
If you are looking for drama, working long hours. And to be completely unappreciated. Poor ownership and poor management to say the least. Very disorganized environment. Not a place I would recommend for long term employment.
Exec Chef (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – February 21, 2017
I was an executive chef at this property. Found it to be lacking in integrity and high in staff turnover. It was dirty and equipment in dis repair. Would never return to HP mgt. Not a group who have Your interest in mind. Thumbs down. Annual kitchen labor budgeted below 12 %. You will open for breakfast and take the Trash out at close. If you take it be prepared for ridiculous hours . The two best days I had were the day I took it and the day I left.!
