When I recently contemplated the possibility of letting go of my employment at this hotel within earshot of our dear general manager, I learned a fun fact. I am a marketing tool. Sure, it seems obvious to you. Roll your eyes at me all you want, I don’t care. Probably I even knew it myself. Charming though I may be, I would have to be good for business or I would not be getting a paycheck. Still, the chill of actually being called a marketing tool was a new experience for me. Perhaps I will start consulting polls and statistics and things before I write to you. At the very least I should think about perhaps checking some facts.
In the mean time, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce to you yet another marketing tool. I am questionable in this role, I think, but this new one is great. We have a commercial up on our website! For those of you who visit us regularly, it’ll give you that special, kind of childish glee at seeing familiar things on video. Well, that’s what it does for me anyway! And if you’re new to us, or maybe even just still considering the possibility of us, I do believe this commercial will win you over. We look stylish and debonnaire, yet relaxed and easygoing. We got every employee caught on camera to button his or her shirt and tuck it into pants or skirt. We even, and I will confess this to you here, rejected the original voiceover work because you could just hear in the woman’s intonations that she didn’t understand us. And now it all fits. We feel ourselves to be well represented. We feel proud. Go check it out for yourself, and please try to resist the urge to immediately book a month long stay.
