Popular amongst Rochester hotels, the Hampton Inn & Suites celebrates the prestigious Spirit of Hampton Award

“Jill Pow’s ability to connect with guests is out of this world,” states Alan Holt, the General Manager.

Rochester hotel the Hampton Inn & Suites Rochester/Victor honored team member Jill Pow on her Spirit of Hampton Award on January 19, 2011. The prestigious Spirit of Hampton award is given to team members who exceed expectations and make outstanding contributions to guests, fellow team members, the outside community and/or their hotel’s financial performance. Employees are nominated by their peers and Hilton officials vote on all nominations presented. The international award is awarded annually to 2,400 Hampton employees and is the highest form of team member recognition.

“Jill Pow’s ability to connect with guests is out of this world,” states Alan Holt, the Rochester hotels General Manager. Having worked at the Rochester hotel for the past 2 ½ years, Jill connected last year with a 12-year-old boy in a wheelchair. After talking to the boy, she found out that he was interested in space and astronomy, so she mailed him some things she thought would interest him.

The next year the family returned and the two immediately started talking where they'd left off, like old friends. “Whether bringing in birthday cakes, giving out Halloween treats or volunteering for local organizations, Jill is always finding ways to connect with others. We thank her for making it Hampton for our guests,” further notes Holt.

The award was given at a luncheon January 19 with 25 team members in attendance where Jill received brand wide recognition, a plaque, $350 and a call from a Hilton brand executive as well as Brian Wismar, Regional Director of New Castle Hotels and Resorts representing the management company for the Rochester hotel.
