Marie Munoz with La Fonda’s General Manager, John Rickey

Marie started her career here at La Fonda in August 1975. She has always been a housekeeping staff member from the day she started to work. Marie is such an inspiration, not only to the housekeeping department, but to all the staff who know and work with her. Marie continues to outperform her peers, and after 38 loyal years at the hotel, is still a hard worker. She’s accurate, thorough, and well organized. Marie completes her tasks thoroughly and in a timely manner. She does not need close supervision, is self-motivated and self-disciplined. Marie reports to work on time and has an excellent attendance record. She is confident, takes pride in her work and always goes beyond the call of duty. Marie has a positive and pleasant attitude. She communicates and works well with all her peers and with guests. Marie is loyal, faithful and dedicated to La Fonda.

Congratulations Marie and thank you for your many years of loyalty.

    Great announcement. It is just more reason to believe that La Fonda is the best hotel in town.
