The Food and Digi Tech students had to be punctual - 10 am at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel because that is what the Hospitality industry strives for, however we were on time to meet David Mammina, HR of the hotel. We were given a tour and history of this luxurious famous hotel.
Photos below show us sitting in their grand ballroom and visualized the baby elephants and camels that came through the entrance for weddings and parties
Just recently Lady Gaga came a private concert in this ballroom. Another highlight was visiting and settling into the couches of the presidential suite where all the presidents (since Hoover) stayed. Traditionally every president leavers a gift, Flynn is sitting in JFK's rocking chair. And Lucy touched the spine of the Harry Potter books that Obama left after his stay. Then it was our time to leave the gold covered ornate plush hotel.
We all vowed to come back.
