Hotel Stories

A Voyeur Runs Amok — What Does a Top Hotel Staff See?

BY // 10.11.15

What’s more intriguing than a hotel? All those rooms, all those stories. The staff at a top hotel has likely seen it all — but their jobs often hinge on complete discretion. Here, style editor Francine Ballard tells the tales of a hotel’s invaluable workers.

The life of a bell captain is ever intriguing, never dull. Service is our perpetual duty, discretion our call. The inner workings of an establishment depend greatly on someone who knows its surroundings intimately — and its patrons even more so.

One generally possesses a keen knowledge of all that is seen and unseen, both inside of chambers and out. A gentleman observes these peculiar instances without judgment and must be trusted safely with personal matters. No task is too menial, no request too great.

You see, my dear voyeur, all of the guests who have remained in our lodgings rely on my good sense and judgment. Quite so. But I will share their stories with you now.
