Fun place to work, stressful at times but enjoyable
Expeditor/Line Cook (Current Employee) –  Galveston, TXMarch 17, 2019
The only actual downfall the working here is they will have you starting with 40+ hours a week, to when it’s slow they will have you knocked down to sometimes 10 hours a week or less. Other than that, the place is great!
Pros
Good family feel with coworkers
Cons
They cut your hours when it’s slow season

Horrible
Manager (Former Employee) –  Brentwood, TNFebruary 21, 2019
Hotel had no functioning fire alarm for over a year. Fired an employee while on fmla leave. I suspect they are altering employee time sheets to conform to ridiculous corp constraints. Stay away you will get cheated.

Worst management company
Gallery Host (Former Employee) –  Denver, COFebruary 19, 2019
The line level employees are the only ones worth anything, unfortunately they are 100% under appreciated, under paid and over worked. This goes to the housekeeping and front desk departments. Salaried Managers flat out do not care about line level employees, they do not even acknowledge their existence on a daily basis. Corporate has unrealistic goals for hotels, including staffing models and sales goals. Worst management company of my career.
Cons
Management and corporate suck

Do not work or apply for this location.
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) –  Fremont, CAJanuary 17, 2019
Not enough hours.
They are constantly looking to hire more people
Manager has there favorites and gives hours to the those they want. I think the schedule should be fair. Not giving others five days and you two days even tho you have an open schedule.
Cons
No fulltime hours, no health care

Nothing good to say!
Associate (Former Employee) –  AlabamaJanuary 13, 2019
My mother always told me, if you have nothing good to say then say nothing at all! Property had great potential, only if the upper management cared. More concerned with stroking egos! Enough said! Will continue to pray for this company, and the good people who continue to work there.
Pros
Competive Salary
Cons

Front Desk Supervisor (Former Employee) –  ALDecember 13, 2018
Management is horrible. They play favorites here, if they decide they don't like you or you speak up about something that is not right they will do everything in their power to silence you.

Pretty good as far as simple jobs go.
Front desk attendant (Former Employee) –  Tallahassee, FL 32303December 6, 2018
I worked there for 4-5 months in 2008 so I can't give a fair review. The hotel I worked for was previously sold by Hampton for being an exterior. Good Floridian hotels are typically pleasant work and stay at. I worked the front desk. The manager we had at the time was extremely rude to guests and staff. It can get busy but otherwise there's not much to do.
Pros
Typically relaxed.
Cons
Customers and staff may be unpredictable in their behavior.

Awful, vindictive, unethical, and extraordinarily dishonest management in F&B.
Server (Former Employee) –  Portsmouth, New HampshireDecember 6, 2018
It simply was not enough that the managers were such ignorant bullies who mistreated employees to the extent of violating labor laws, but they also fully enabled several employees who were also bullies and whose sole motivation was greed. It is an unpleasant, unkind, selfish, and greedy atmosphere. In a word, it is downright pernicious. If decency and ethics are part of your personal values, you would be well advised to avoid this place at all cost.
Pros
None
Cons
Managers who are liars and bullies

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, CODecember 6, 2018
If you want to know where the dregs of society work look no further than this place. Most of the staff were on drugs. As for the managers I wouldn't allow them to manage a lemonade stand. I have no idea how these people got their jobs. Don't waste your time on this place.

Worst company to work for!
Housekeeper (Former Employee) –  Portsmouth, NHNovember 26, 2018
Working in a busy downtown Portsmouth NH location you’ll think housekeepers were full staffed, however there was with me included 4 housekeepers with the 2 laziest most extemley unprofessional housekeeping “supervisors” these supervisors bad mouth each other andwould rather sit in the housekeeping office pumping Breast milk while the other just rather texting on their phones &talking to one another Vs cleaning the rooms considering it’s understaffed, they demanded the housekeepers to stay from 8am until almost midnight cleaning rooms since it’s a hotel with 3 floor with 42 rooms on each floor , completely have most non speaking employees as slaves, as they work 7 days straight no days off with working 50+ hours! Because the supervisiors tell them “they have to”
Not to mention considering the EXTREME workload, the housekeepers are really NOT cleaning the rooms according to standards, the only time they focus on cleaning as it should be cleaned, is when someone from a high office is making a visit, this place is a Disaster

Surely if you want to be a slave for an unappreciative company, with the WORST management, THIS IS THE PLACE!
Pros
Free coffee and beverages!
Cons
Extreme work load, slavery at its finest!

Poor Treatment & Out of Date
Night Auditor/Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee) –  Portsmouth, NHNovember 23, 2018
-Out of date dusty decades old computers and phones, while lobby is lined with unnecessary luxuries.
-Managers enjoyed an air-conditioned office while front desk and especially valet sweltered in triple digit heat this past summer.
-Expected night auditors to stand while doing hours of paperwork
-No employee hotel perks like use of gym or pool
Pros
Swanky downtown location, decent benefits
Cons
Everything else

Management (Former Employee) –  Southwest, AZNovember 8, 2018
The quality of your experience will vary greatly depending on who your Regional VP is. A good Regional VP will develop and coach. Others show favoritism & randomly release managers who have been with the company for many years..
Cons
Lack of understanding that each market is unique.

terrible management with little to no communication until last minute and maintenance does next to nothing
Overnight Security (Current Employee) –  Islandia, NYOctober 15, 2018
management will call or text the day of if not a few hours prior if they need you to cover a shift or people are late often. maintenance does next to no work in repairing or maintaining the hotel and things are constantly breaking in not only guest rooms but practically everywhere and the things that break usually stray broken for months if not longer. housekeeping does not keep up with the laundry and ends up struggling or pushing off other tasks to the housemen along with maintenance pushing tasks off to housemen or front desk.
Pros
job security
Cons
too many to list
