USA, Chicago, Illinois. December 06, 2018

Rosemont's first boutique hotel and closest off-airport property to O'Hare International Airport, The Rose Hotel Chicago/O'Hare, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, which recently opened its doors at 5200 Pearl Street, is thrilled to welcome Nicholas Malloy as the Executive Chef of the property. Chef Malloy comes to The Rose Hotel Chicago/O'Hare team with an impressive background that spans high-end hotels and independently owned restaurants around the Chicagoland area.

Chef Malloy's expansive background began back in 2009, when he graduated from Kendall College Culinary School and joined the team at the independently owned 545 North Bar and Grill. From there, Malloy moved on to become Lead Supervisor of the Banquet Culinary Team at the JW Marriott Chicago. In 2014, he joined the Chicago Marriott Naperville as a Sous Chef, where he became the leader in designing the menu for their Artisan Table.

“We are beyond ecstatic to welcome Nicholas to our growing team,” says Micaela Haas, General Manager of The Rose Hotel Chicago/O'Hare, Tapestry Collection by Hilton. “Nicholas brings with him an inviting personality, and has already embraced our motto One Team One Dream when serving patrons and working alongside our fellow colleagues. We are eager for our hotel guests and the public alike to stop in and experience Chef's new menus.”

Guest Service: A Culture of YES

In a recent global consumers report, 97% of the participants said that customer service is a major factor in their loyalty to a brand, and 76% said they view customer service as the true test of how much a company values them. And since there is no industry more reliant on customer satisfaction than the hotel industry, managers must be unrelenting in their determination to hire, train and empower the very best people, and to create a culture of exceptional customer service within their organization. Of course, this begins with hiring the right people. There are people who are naturally service-oriented; people who are warm, empathetic, enthusiastic, pleasant, thoughtful and optimistic; people who take pride in their ability to solve problems for the hotel guests they are serving. Then, those same employees must be empowered to solve problems using their own judgment, without having to track down a manager to do it. This is how seamless problem solving and conflict resolution are achieved in guest service. This willingness to empower employees is part of creating a Culture of Yes within an organization.  The goal is to create an environment in which everyone is striving to say “Yes”, rather than figuring out ways to say, “No”. It is essential that this attitude be instilled in all frontline, customer-facing, employees. Finally, in order to ensure that the hotel can generate a consistent level of performance across a wide variety of situations, management must also put in place well-defined systems and standards, and then educate their employees about them. Every employee must be aware of and responsible for every standard that applies in their department. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
