Background Information

The Marriott at Glenpointe is no ordinary hotel. Marriott International, Inc. is a leading worldwide hospitality company. Its heritage can be traced to a root beer stand opened in Washington DC, in 1927 by J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott. Today, Marriott International has more than 2,700 lodging properties located in the United States and 65 other countries and territories. Marriott at Glenpointe contains 18 meeting rooms and 26,500 square feet of event space, centrally located in Teaneck, NJ. This hotel has been a great facilitator to many corporate companies that enjoy holding meetings at very luxurious, comfortable and inexpensive rooms.

Summary of Internship

My experience as an intern at the Marriott Hotel in Glenpointe has been very meaningful. What I have learned along with the experience itself have provided me with lots of knowledge, which will help me in the future. My mentors Donna Bolich and Jeffery Mark have done their best to teach me all about the hotel industry and how to run a successful hotel. I have improved my organizational skills by filing documents, and my communication skills by making professional phone calls, and even at being creative. I also improved my creativity skills by decorating the lobby for different seasons or events. My experience has definitely allowed me to learn and have fun at the same time.
