The Waldorf Astoria New York
It is March 3rd my last day at the Waldorf, and the doors have been closed since Wednesday. It has been a little over three years since I stepped into the building for my first interview. I had been there before,but the grandeur was still overwhelming, the beauty of the building, the ornate detailed hallways had features of a time long gone. Soon enough, this building became my home, I forgot about the enormity unless I looked up on my way in every morning.
And I am about to travel now, and it is the first time in a long time I won't be coming back to my office after. Like any one has, in any job, there were frustrating moments. There are things that only Waldorf Alumni would understand about the work we experienced within this city block. In however many years, when your doors open again, you won't be the same. But for you to survive and thrive, changes must be made. You were my home, I met people here that are friends and family to me.
It was an honor to have it be my home. And I will come back to see it when it opens again. You are truly "The Greatest of Them All".
