A Day in the Life at KAJ: Housekeeping

Stories | Hospitality

Featuring Rashawn Berry, Sheraton Four Points, Fargo

Vacation for many means a break in ordinary life—a chance to enjoy new places and experiences. Time to escape the day-to-day grind of work, school, and household obligations. It means turning the alarm clock off and enjoying someone else caring for and pampering you.

At KAJ, our guests, whether traveling for business or pleasure, have the opportunity to be pampered and cared for by Rashawn Berry, our Executive Head Housekeeper at Sheraton Four Points in Fargo. Dubbed our “Comfort Keepers,” our housekeeping team sees to all the little details that comprise an excellent stay on our properties.

What Does a Job in Hotel Housekeeping Look Like?

By definition, housekeeping means the management and duties associated with running a household—from upkeep to comfort. In a hotel, it means making every aspect of the guest experience top-notch through personal touch and service. Our housekeepers treat guest spaces like their own, keeping things inviting, fresh, and clean. From bed top pillow arrangements to the warm, bright lobbies that provide guests with their first impression of the property, Rashawn and her team oversee the visual and sensory aspects of hospitality.

“This is something my family grew up with. To make it into a career is very good.” —Rashawn Berry

As Rashawn shared in the video, there’s comfort in the ritual of cleaning. The order, the functionality. It’s about more than cleaning up after guests leave—it’s about welcoming them into our spaces and encouraging them to feel at home and well cared for. Each day, as many are in hospitality, is different, but the skills and attributes of the KAJ housekeeping team can be summarized by:

  • People skills
  • Organization
  • Good time management
  • Appreciation for details
  • Ability to work as a team and independently
  • Personal touch
  • Great attitudes
