NYC Sofitel Changes Housekeeper Dress Code

New York Post: Female staff at the Manhattan hotel where former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn allegedly sexually assaulted a chambermaid were being allowed Thursday to wear trousers instead of skirts, after a protest from employees, a union official said.

Sofitel, a hotel chain that prides itself on a traditional dress code, made the concession amid concern about the vulnerability of chambermaids after Strauss-Kahn was charged over allegations that he sexually assaulted and tried to rape a 32-year-old housekeeper.

The alteration of its uniform code followed a meeting between staff and management that was also attended by a New York Hotel Workers Union representative, according to The (London) Times. "There had been some complaints about the uniform," union spokesman John Turchiano told the newspaper.

Earlier this week, Assemblyman Rory Lancman (D-Queens) called for legislation that would ensure maids were equipped with panic buttons. "Housekeepers at hotels have a right not to be sexually attacked," said Lancman. "We send hotel workers into rooms, by themselves, with no security."

Strauss-Kahn was moved Wednesday to a luxury Tribeca townhouse, where he will remain under house arrest.

Housekeepers make sure that hotels are clean, welcoming and ready to accept guests. They organise their staff to clean guest bathrooms and bedrooms, and to clean and prepare public rooms such as the lounge and restaurant. Many hotels supply a uniform or have a particular dress code.

Thanks.

I never found a single piece of error in their work and when they asked me to write a review and testimony to their work; I could not be able to say NO. Personally I have found them truly professional and a company which take care of your home like their own. Their services are fantastic and I am pleased to assure the world out there that NY Housekeeping is the best of all the housekeeping companies in New York.
