New and old employees of the hotel were on the guest list and the gathering was a joyous retrospect of the past and confident appraisal of the future. An encouraging and inspiring blueprint for the next 20 years made an impressive focus for celebrations. The warm, merry and moving atmosphere infused the whole party, organized around the themes of excellence, gratitude, honor and tribute.
