Banquet Houseman (PM)

Posted December 7, 2018

Since opening its doors in 1912, The Adolphus has served as an icon of Dallas and an integral part of the City’s history and culture. Situated on the original site of City Hall, the hotel was modeled after a beaus arts German castle. In its recent restoration and renovation, the hotel’s storied past is both celebrated and reimagined. There is a sense of discovery at every turn.

The Banquet House Person will maintain and organize all banquet service and storage areas. As well as prepare function space for catered and convention functions.  Assist Banquet Management in the preparing for banquet guests and ensure positive guest experience.
