Luxury hotels’ oddest professions

小編:你知道現在國外五星級飯店出現了很多奇怪的職務嗎?嗯…還有專門溜鴉子和照顧鴉子的…所以是請獸醫系的來飯店上班嗎?

 

From a duckmaster to a tequila butler, there’s a professional at hand to satisfy even the most demanding guest.

Gone are the days when luxury hotels could assume guests would be satisfied with a smile from the receptionist and some insider advice from a long-serving concierge. As major brands battle for business, they’re promoting increasingly niche services and employing staff with highly specialised – or peculiar – skills to set their properties apart and create a loyal customer base.

The most impressive positions seem to be the quirky few that are offered by a miniscule number of properties internationally. At thePeabody Hotel in Memphis, ‘duckmaster’ Anthony Petrina is in charge of what is one of the residence’s main attractions: its flock of ducks. The 25-year-old takes responsibility for the overall care and wellbeing of the five North American mallards and is most visible in his role during the twice-daily March of The Peabody Ducks. At 11am each morning, he accompanies the ducks as they march along a red carpet from their rooftop Royal Duck Palace to the marble fountain in the lobby. John Philip Sousa’s King Cotton March plays as the procession takes place. The procedure is repeated at 5pm, when the ducks return to their palace and retire for the evening. It sounds made up, but it happens.
