Meet the team: Sadie Sanders

Stressed by the idea of having to get your house tidy and sparkling in time for the Christmas break?

Well spare a thought of Hotel La Tour Head Housekeeper Sadie Sanders who, together with her team, has the year-round task of polishing and plumping, shining and sweeping, tucking and titivating to keep our building beautiful.

Sadie joined the team a few weeks prior to the hotel opening in March 2012.

What did you do before you joined La Tour?

I was a part-time room attendant at a hotel while studying a BTEC National Diploma in Hotel Management. I worked at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham for five years progressing through the housekeeping department to become Assistant Housekeeping Manager. After that I worked in Dubai in a corporate hotel and resort hotel. My last property was a pre-opening of 180 luxury serviced apartments. I have also worked for Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and been involved in VIP functions. I returned to the UK as I had achieved all my goals and I missed my family. I joined Ardencote Manor Hotel as Housekeeping Manager and was there for two years before coming to Hotel La Tour.

What do you most like about Birmingham?

It has a brilliant, central location and my family and friends are here.

The best thing about working in the city centre is … being able to pop to the shops.

What attracted you to work here?

I love the buzz of a pre-opening and the opportunity to set up a department from scratch.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Zumba, shop, socialise and walk in the countryside.

My favourite TV show is … Homeland.

And my favourite style of food is … sushi, noodles, fine dining or Italian.
