"Local and lots of history."
For the month of March, the Queen Anne Chamber selected one of the most iconic hotels in Seattle, the MarQueen Hotel. Located at 600 Queen Anne Avenue North in what is known as Uptown, this hotel has a rich history, and is in one of the neighborhood's iconic building. And the hotel is celebrating its 100 year anniversary this year!
We asked MarQueen Hotel's Louis Galdeira, a few questions.
What is your title and how long have you been associated with the MarQueen Hotel? Director of Sales since October 2017.
What is the best part of your job? Managing each guest experience and making their stay something to talk about…I love seeing people happy.
Louis Galdeira III, Director of Sales
