This profession exists… Pullman hotels all over the world

Monica Castenada Welcomer at Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel tells her story

"This position spans a rich array of responsibilities, involving contact with our guests and with all the hotel departments.

You need to be constantly available and be able to listen closely to guests to quickly and efficiently respond to all their requests.

I’m very much aware that the Welcomers are emblematic of the Pullman brand, not only because our position was tailor-made for the new Pullman network, but also because we’re the most visible element in this new offer. My colleagues and I all believe that this function has a great future. And we’re equally convinced that it will be enriched further with new responsibilities in the years to come."
