Humans of Lord Elgin

Humans of Lord Elgin

Do you ever wonder what stories are behind the people who you see every day? The purpose for this version of #HumansOf… is to show the ‘behind the scenes members’ that you interact with when staying at the Lord Elgin Hotel. This downtown Ottawa hotel features so many different people that you would notice walking by or checking in. This is a way to introduce you to the very characters that basically have made the Lord Elgin Hotel their home. The place where employees say they have laid down roots, and have grown with their own family. Being family owned, the hotel is very big on keeping a classic yet home-like feel. Oriented towards taking care of their own, each member of the hotel knows they have someone to talk and go to whenever needed. Humans of Lord Elgin is meant to show you a small tidbit of how many employees see and feel working at the hotel. However, it is truly meant to introduce guests to the people behind the desk or luggage cart. These posts can be your next conversation starter, because we would all love to hear your stories as well. Post with the hashtag #HumansOfLordElgin, and tell us your story with the members of the hotel.
