28 Mar, 2011
Well it’s Meet ‘n Greet Monday! While the Pfister Hotel has housed many celebrities over the years, the true stars are our staff. Every week you will meet a member of our staff, and have your chance to share your memories and interactions with them. Today,we feature someone who just celebrated a very special anniversary with us and is a staple of our Lobby Lounge, the one and only, Ellie.
Name – Ellie
Position – Cocktail Server in the Lobby Lounge
How long have you worked at the Pfister Hotel? – 30 years, since 1980.
Why do you like working at the Pfister Hotel? – Everyday is different. Plus all my customers are special, they make me feel special, like I try to make them feel. The Pfister is a great place to work!
What’s your favorite Pfister memory? – I love it when the old Milwaukee Brewers return to town for games, and they always make the gesture to come up to me and say hello with a warm hug. It feels good to be remembered by great players like Robin Yount, Gorman Thomas, Rollie Fingers and Paul Molitor. I remember one time, when they were still playing at County Stadium, the invited me to a game (really good seats) because they thought I deserved it for my hard work.
Tell us something we don’t know about you? – I like to sew, and enjoy going to basketball and baseball games.
What is the oddest/weirdest request that you have ever gotten from a guest? - When a repeat guest made a request to go to the Milwaukee Club, simply because his room faces that building, and he has wanted to get in for years. Since I knew the manager, this wish became true.
Have you met Ellie before? Do you have a story about her? Thank you so much for being fans of the Pfister Hotel, and look forward to a new person to meet every Monday.
