The Marquette Minneapolis

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Vicho on August 28, 2006

I had two hours before the interview so I decided to have a quick look around the town after ironing my clothes with the hotel provided iron. I could have even washed my hair as the hairdryer is also provided. Before leaving I found the lunch area, with little snacks and drinks all day long. I grabbed some water and ran to explore the city. It took me a while to explain to the polite black guy at the entrance that I wanted to walk to the St. Anthon’s waterfalls. He knew nothing about them but managed to send me to the Mississippi river.

During my trip I was trying to picture what you would be like. Living in the same hotel-guess not higher then me as that would be the roof, so are you going to be horribly empty posh? I was really considering if I did want the job in that case as I need people with heart around me. I was questioning why I spent my whole life studying to get that high-among the people I don’t like.

But nothing catastrophic happened. You were the most wonderful person ever. You were young and smart, sensitive and intelligent and above all extremely professional. It would be a pleasure to work with you.

After the interview I spent some time in the lunch area, meeting with couples then talking with a women and one selfish posh man - exactly the type of people to be expected here. I put on something normal, slide down with the lift-for the way down card is not required!

Knowing that I would have half day off, I needed to arrange staying in the hotel room one hour longer then regular check out time - till 1pm. A nice black guy in the reception had no problem with it and he even recommended me where to go out on such a silly day as Tuesday.

At the end of the day, I met some normal people even here. The receptionist, the guy giving me directions and the cleaning lady, Maria Guadalupe-she had a really charming sincere smile when we talked to each other in Spanish. I think I could get used to this lifestyle, especially because of the pillows and the bed. This place had the best bed I have ever slept in and the pillows were just miraculous. I guess that’s what the nearly 400 dollars a night is for.
