I have travelled and slept in some different places. The floor in a pastor’s home in Bermuda, in a mud hut in Kisii, Kenya, in a discount hotel in Seoul, the VIA rail train between Miramichi and Montreal, my car while on the road, to name a few.
I’m still amazed when I travel and because of my employment that I am able to stay at the Ritz-Carlton. I have been making reservations for Marriott and its branded hotels for almost 6 years now.
In this time, I have been able to stay at Marriott hotels, Courtyard hotels, Renaissance hotels, Residence Inn, Springhill Suites, Towneplace Suites and certainly not the least, Ritz-Carlton hotels. One of the perks of working for Marriott hotels is the employee discount. So if you are a hospitality minded person, look for a job with one of the large multi-national hospitality companies. Your vacations will be better for it.
And sometimes more ironic too. A number of years ago I went to Washington for conference talking about poverty while staying at the Ritz, free. The irony being staying at one of the most luxurious hotels while…well, you get the picture.
