As Head Housekeeper of the Wyndham Grand, London, Delia Maury thrives on working with her happy team of helpers to ensure the hotel guests have an enjoyable and relaxed stay. With over fifteen years of experience in the industry, Delia is used to the non-stop, busy days that demand creative thinking, unlimited preparation and strong people skills.
We recently posed 10 random quick fire questions to Delia… here’s her answers:
Car or public transport?
I hate public transport I would love to be able to drive in to work each day.
Hotel or Hostels?
I don’t tend to stay in hotels I normally do self catering holidays as I feel like I am working if I enter a hotel anywhere in the world.
Entertaining or Being Entertained?
I like being in control so being the entertainer is my thing.
Eat out or Eat in?
I like to eat in at friends houses or mine – it is more personal.
Trousers or Skirts?
I am a skirt person. I used to be a trouser person but find trousers too hot to wear at work.
Marigolds or bare hands?
Sorry but it has to be bare hands as you can feel if things are clean.
Italian or Chinese food?
Chinese as I hate cheese! Italian food always has some kind of cheese in it.
Night or Day?
I am a rooster! Up at the crack of dawn and early to bed.
Own brand or Persil detergent?
Persil is great – it is the only detergent my husband makes good comments on, we love the smell it leaves on our bed sheets.
If you were a ‘fly on the wall’ in one of the Wyndham’s suites who would you like to watch/listen to?
Katie Price as I am sure she is not all that bad, just going through tough times. She seems intelligent so I would love to know more about the real Katie.
