When did you start working at the Promenade Hotel?
April 2015, but before that I gained experience while working at Novotel Scheveningen, Europe and Kurhaus.
Have you always worked in the same department?
Yes. First, I started as housekeeper employee. Then, I was promoted to supervisor and now I am the head of the housekeeping department.
What was the most remarkable (diplomatic) event you experienced?
There was an event where bodyguards in the hallways and undercover agents were required. That was really impressive.
Why was this so remarkable?
Even the crew wanted to double check the rooms! And, we were not allowed in the rooms without permission.
What international habit, tradition or event that you have observed, appeals to you?
The high level of security with the undercover agents and body guards impressed me, but also the Food Festivals and the annual Haring Party.
It is special because you see so many different guests. I am still waiting for a Food Festival based on Suriname.
What do you consider interesting about the international guests and events organized at the hotel?
They try to explore the Netherlands. It is also special that we have guests with such a variety of cultures. And, we have many international companies and organizations in the neighborhood – so it is extraordinary that we are the one to welcome their guest
