Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Ellen's Great Hospitality

--by t75dkm3, posted May 24, 2007
On a business trip, a group of us were having dinner at our hotel.

Our server overheard us talking about changing to a hotel closer to the Airport for our early flights out.  It was a bit slow so our server said she could help us, and we thought OK, go ahead.  How could it hurt? 

She came back with a list of 5 hotels, 2 of which were sold out, one was kind of a cheap hotel, one only had 3 rooms, and one that would work.  We were stunned.  After dinner she even went to the front desk with us and called the one hotel that fit our needs so that we could make the necessary arrangements for our transfer. 

Technically speaking, she was losing business but she was more interested in helping us as human beings than treating us as business clients.

Thanks you, Ellen.  You went above and betond your normal duties!
