The True Waldorf Service Award

Who on your team consistently delivers True Waldorf Service and positively impacts guests, the hotel, and/or the community? Recognize your top Team Members by nominating them for the True Waldorf Service Award. It’s our brand’s highest form of individual recognition. Winners are selected quarterly, and receive the following:

  • $350 US (net) for the winner ($700 US for winning teams — to be split equally among all winners), to be paid by corporate!
  • A surprise call from a brand executive notifying the winner!
  • Recognition of the winning Team Member and hotel on our Waldorf Community website and in Communiqué.
  • And more.

The recognition isn’t limited to the winners. All nominees receive a certificate, a copy of their nomination, and the good feeling that comes with knowing that others have acknowledged their efforts.
