The Hospitality Olympics is a celebratory event focused on shining a light on every role needed to successfully run a hotel. Employees compete in events such as Bed Making, Electric Cord Untangle, a Mop Race and a Taste Test in an attempt to win the coveted Golden Toilet Brush and bragging rights for the year. The overall effect is a boosted morale and a general feeling of appreciation. The 2022 Games took place at the Charlotte Convention Center on August 11.
