#TheStoriesBeginHere – with Roel, our All-round Food & Beverage Waiter
It was the Waldorf Astoria New York, who once started In-Room-Dining offerings as a first hotel in the world. In Amsterdam we continue to provide our guests with unforgettable dining experiences in the comfort of their own room. Our charming Roel, with his soft southern accent, is especially drawn by this department and its unpredictability.
He has been involved in all possible Food & Beverage departments you can think of. From early morning breakfast to late nights in Banqueting, however In Room Dining caught his interest. Whether it may be a light snack, a bottle of champagne or something more substantial, Roel makes sure that all culinary wishes of our guests are attended to. Moreover, Roel stealthily goes around the hotel to surprise our guests with treats, gifts & amenities which he carefully places in their rooms.
Apart from his F&B skills, Roel has outstanding graphical designing skills which come in very handy as he is a great help to our Marketing Department. When he is not wearing one of his many hats in the hotel, you will find him running alongside the beautiful canals as he is training for the ‘Dam to Dam loop’, raising money for the JDRF Foundation as a part of the Waldorf Astoria Team.
