Further to my blog last week [read it here] about how Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts defines themselves, please note these additional words from Victoria Uslander, our primary contact and phenomenal local director of sales for Four Seasons:
“… I think we first need to redefine ourselves – rather than use the word luxury – I think we would much more accurately define ourselves with words like: Caring, Generous, Trustworthy, Reliable, Supportive, Gracious…
Our biggest investment in our future is definitely in our people – we will continue to seek out the best and brightest who share the common values that make Four Seasons so unique – our people will remain our number one priority since they are the ones who will continue to provide those stellar guest experiences – everyone can have a beautiful lobby and gorgeous guest rooms but is the staff who welcome you day in and day out who create the true guest experience and that has been our guiding principle from day one when Mr. Sharp founded the company.”
Back to Josh now…. when I was younger I was very wrapped up in working in a snazzy office and driving a nice car. As I got older I didn’t lose my aesthetic, but I did learn where to place importance. So I became quite happy living in a not so nice apartment (for a while) and working in not so nice an office. But I got what I really needed and it helped me to grow. Granted Four Seasons has all the hardware to give one the “Wow!” on arrival, and now I drive a nice fast car, but what we share is a commitment to similar ideals as Victoria relayed above. So I guess what I’m saying is that the Four Seasons experience could be just as good with the same staff in a Holiday Inn! Sort of.
