Name: Todd Orlich
Title: General manager

Little-known fact about you: I was a trumpet player. For a moment, I had aspirations to play professionally.

Your Business

Essential business philosophy: Lead from the ground up, as the associate experience drives everything. Guests sense if employees are happy and excited, so my philosophy is to hire well, train well, inspire and equip.

Best way to keep a competitive edge: We focus on hiring well. Also, be interested in what else is happening in the hospitality industry by reviewing statistics and data-predictive numbers. Lastly, love your guests! It is all about repeat business.

Yardstick of success: Measuring secure guest score, which tells me how likely guests are to return; the overall guest satisfaction score; associate satisfaction; and the number of repeat guests, especially in the food and beverage outlets.

InterContinental Paris Le Grand Hotel Review

The best 5-star hotels wholly personify their location, transforming a vacation into a fully immersive experience. This can be said about many of the ultra-chic, small-scale boutique luxury hotels in Paris built into gorgeous, architecturally significant former homes or apartment buildings. While these fashionable gems embody the fantasy Paris sojourn, InterContinental Paris Le Grand Hotel & Spa can as well, even as it houses 458 suites and rooms. It’s worth noting there are also marked advantages to its size (as a stellar spot for destination weddings and business conferences) and central location in the 9th arrondissment.
