Celebrating Housekeeping Appreciation Week

IMG_5698This week at Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, we’re celebrating Housekeeping Appreciation Week.  While we appreciate our hardworking associates all year long, it’s nice to take one week out of the year to dedicate especially to this hard-working team that is the heart of the hotel.

This morning the housekeeping associates were surprised with a full hot breakfast of eggs, hash browns, bacon, fruit, pastries, and omelets made to order cooked up by the Housekeeping Managers themselves!  They took omelet-making lessons from our Executive Chef to be able to be behind the pan cooking for their team.

More surprises and prizes are to come throughout the week including cake & ice cream, Minute to Win It games with prizes, a massage/spa day, and even a week-long selfie contest plus so much more that we cannot disclose yet.

Enjoy your week Housekeeping Department! We appreciate you!!
