Watch Hill, RI (PRWEB) March 15, 2010
The Ocean House is now hiring hospitality professionals in all areas to operate the soon to be opened luxury ocean front resort. The Ocean House vision is “Aim for the Stars” reflecting the goal of becoming a five star destination hotel and residence.
The $140 million construction project is nearing completion and Ocean House is scheduled to open in mid-May. Hotel reservations are already being accepted.
Those that value tradition and are passionate about hospitality are invited to attend one of two sessions on March 16 or March 23 at The Armory, 8 Dixon Street, Westerly, RI.
“We are seeking individuals who hold themselves to the highest standards and we are eager to provide the level of personalized service that will be the hallmark of the Ocean House” said Daniel Hostettler, Managing Director.
“Candidates do not necessarily require hotel experience; we believe in hiring on behavior and training on skill,” said Alice Brennan, Director of Associate Relations and Recruiting.
There are position openings in all areas of the hotel including guest services, housekeeping, spa, maintenance, restaurant, culinary, catering and banquets. Full-time, part-time and seasonal staff will be hired.
Unlike the original hotel, the Ocean House will be open throughout the year, offering unique activities for guests and residents both during the summer beach season and year round.
The Career Fair will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on March 16 and again on March 23. Based on preliminary interest in employment at the Ocean House, hundreds of applicants are expected. Those unable to attend should e-mail their resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The people we hire will want to be part of a team focused on gracious hospitality in an informally elegant atmosphere” Hostettler said.
The original Ocean House, one of New England’s last grand hotels, was built just after the Civil War. Meticulously reconstructed to pay tribute to the gracious hospitality of the Victorian era and to provide the modern amenities required by today’s discerning luxury traveler, the Ocean House is perched high on the bluffs in Watch Hill with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, Montauk and Block Island.
The resort has 49 guestrooms and 23 private residences. Farm-to-table casual and fine dining, the 12,000-square-foot OH! Spa and more than 10,000 square feet of event space will make the Ocean House ideal for mid-week business retreats, close-to-home family vacations, weekend luxury escapes and destination weddings.
