    Pros

    Great company with excellent growth opportunities. There are plenty of opportunities for promotion within the company, as the company looks primarily to promote from within. Fun place to work, great fellow employees and a healthy work/life balance.

    Cons

    No cons during my experience, however this company does value quick learning and continuous hard work.

    Pros

    The atmosphere is very pretty.

    Cons

    Everything! Managers have favorites, tips are not steady because they have a very unpredictable system regarding how server are to go take turns with tables. Very micromanaged by their current manager who is the worst manager I've ever dealt with!

    Advice to Management

    Get a new one with confidence who doesn't feel the need to go on power trips and micromanage capable good employees!

    I worked at Destination Hotels full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Destination Hotels still has the innocence of a small hotel chain although it is growing quickly. Most positions start at competitive rates, and full-time associates will have access to solid healthcare. The staff is on the younger side, which for myself helps me feel at home. Most associates are decently trained and can hold their own, which helps contribute to a good team morale.

    Cons

    Management is fickle in their presence, often too busy behind the scenes. Growth is "encouraged" but little is done to advance the hard workers. Problems often fall on deaf ears with management, and there seems to be a lack of lower-level management (supervisors, assistant managers) to help with day-to-day issues. Staffing is a constant struggle, as busier seasons approach and little is done to prepare for this.

    Advice to Management

    Balance out the division between morale and revenue. It seems that money is priority number one, sometimes even before the customer. Listen to your associates and praise them for their achievements. Promote from within and give your team the best tools for success.

    I worked at Destination Hotels full-time

    Pros

    Exciting and dynamic environment to work in. The higher-ups really make staff feel like the operation is their own. David Dunlap is an amazing chef to work under and there are always opportunities to learn about cuisine, dining, and wine.

    Cons

    The clients can be very demanding at times but M&P and the style of dining it offers is new to Richmond so, patience. The community will soon catch on to the more metropolitan feel M&P and Quirk Hotel are bringing to little Richmond.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and good luck as you continue to identify the correct staff members for this exciting venture

    I have been working at Destination Hotels part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits were very good, the property I worked for was quite beautiful. And it was always busy so the sales and marketing departments did their job pretty well.

    Cons

    Always constant drama and turnover with the management. Cheap company all around, overpriced products and services that customers dont like. company doesn't hire well, seems to take anyone for certain jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Close the pay gap between upper and middle or lower management. Put some money into your hotels because they are falling apart.

    I worked at Destination Hotels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with.

    Cons

    Human Resources is the devil. They are honestly the rudest people I have ever met. You are living in a new place you would think at least they would help. Nope. The place is a joke. Being a bellman you are just chauffeuring people around. I was highly deceived on how much I would make in tips. The employee rooms are just a tiny hotel room with 3-4 people crammed onto bunk beds, no way to cook (not even a community stove) so all of your little tips money is spent on the expensive restaurants of snowmass. Just don't do it unless you're desperate.
