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, it’s the man of a thousand stories, Roc, one of our fine concierges.

Name – Roc

Position – Concierge

How long have you worked at the Pfister Hotel? – For 12 years, since 1998

Why do you like working at the Pfister Hotel? –  I like the opportunity to see and to have interactions with this representative selection of the world’s population – from royalty, billionaires and presidents to local families out for a special weekend to people from the street, just wandering through

What’s your favorite Pfister memory? – This could go on for pages, but I will, for the moment, mention two: 1. The evening I waltzed with Sarah, Duchess of York, from front entrance to the elevator.  2. Visiting with former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Tell us something we don’t know about you? – Years ago, at slow times during summer break while I was teaching, I made my living as a handwriting analyst and playing he horses at Arlington Race Track.

What is the oddest/weirdest request that you have ever gotten from a guest? – To rent a submarine, Did it too!

Thank you Roc for being a participant on Meet ‘n Greet Monday.
