When people come together in beautiful surroundings with great food and terrific service, they share more, learn more easily, and collaborate better.

SERVICE EXCELLENCE DRIVES GUEST SATISFACTION. Spend enough time with us and you will get the impression that the success of the guest service program is the result of a highly analytical and insights-based strategy. And you are right. But it also hinges on something less measurable: the way employees care deeply about making every guest’s experience truly extraordinary. This focus on service excellence makes a difference, visible through results of guest satisfaction surveys that seek candid feedback from every guest. Surveys also shed light on standout employees who strive to continually improve the guest experience.
WONDERFUL EXPERIENCES COME FROM GENUINE PEOPLE. People make the experience. Your employees will be selected based on obvious potential as well as past accomplishments. Nurturing that potential by mapping out career paths, charting progress, and promoting from within helps foster the tremendous growth of smart,
engaged, and caring employees. This process also helps retain the most dedicated employees—those who pride themselves on providing your guests with the unmatched service that becomes another moment of truth.
PART OF DOING WELL IS DOING GOOD. Doing well and doing good go hand in hand. That means delivering exceptional operational results while doing what’s right for the planet. Our long-term environmental stewardship programs and policies are part of your daily routine, with a focus on sustainable food, responsible procurement, energy and water conservation, waste management, transportation, and green building and sustainable building operation. Sustainability matters—to us, to you, to your guests, and to the world.
