Today was our first day doing hotel tour at Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador Hotel. Jocelyn, the sales manager and Anne from human resources did a presentation on the hotel history and background. The Ambassador Hotel first opened in 1917 and was named the biggest hotel in Paris for having a 1,000 room, but now its only 300 room. After the presentation, they accompanied and showed us a room and the rooftop executive lounge. The view was magnificent!
After our lunch break, we did our first walking tour at Palace de la Concorde. Stephanie, Murielle, and Natasha covered a lot of information on their project from the history of the obelisk to the hotels and garden nearby.
The restaurant / kitchen tour at Assemblee Nationale led by Frank Languille was very thorough. He explained all the details on how this restaurant and kitchen operate. There were a lot of stations in different floors and three different type of restaurants (cafeteria, fast service, and fine dining). Again, the view from the restaurants was as beautiful as the hotel!
