A major internship in the dean of Palaces
Welcome to the dean of Parisian palaces. With a view of the entire Tuileries Gardens, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower and a stone's throw from the Place de la Concorde and the Champs-Élysées, the Hotel Le Meurice is one of the jewels of the Dorchester Collection and one of the most mythical hotels in the capital.
Emma Hassler, who is doing her internship at the end of her 3rd year Bachelor of Hotel Management at the Luxury Hotelschool, appreciates the great opportunity given to her to practice in this magical place: “Rich in art and history, Le Meurice represents for me one of the most beautiful establishments in the world. The greatest personalities who stayed at Le Meurice knew how to leave their mark there; that's what makes this palace so unique and so prestigious. We can feel real emotions just by entering the lobby.” From Dalí to Picasso, via Warhol, the hotel has been a haven of peace and a place of inspiration for many artists who have indeed left their mark on the history of Le Meurice over the years.
“In addition to the typical missions inherent to my function as a receptionist (Check-in, Check-out, email management, telephones...), my main mission — the most decisive and the most exciting in a palace — is to ensure the best customer relationship to make everyone's stay unforgettable. It is thanks to this relationship that we can measure and anticipate each need that will allow us to offer an exceptional, tailor-made service aimed at delighting our customers.”
“I particularly appreciate the trust that the team and my managers place in me. At Le Meurice, I am not considered as an intern but as a receptionist in my own right. Delivering a unique experience is a real challenge on a daily basis and it allows me to perfect my skills and develop real emotional intelligence. This is essential in high-end hotels and luxury hotels.”
“This internship allows me to illustrate the various management and leadership courses taught within the Luxury Hotelschool hotel school, and to apply the techniques of interpersonal skills and know-how learned through the various professional posture seminars set up by the school.”
