Executive Housekeeping Manager Lorena Perales lost her entire housekeeping team due to layoffs during the pandemic. Airlie is a unique, historic and large property with 16 meeting spaces and 122 guest rooms spread over six buildings. Every day, Lorena was working: cleaning curtains, scrubbing floorboards, washing windows and more. Without her hard work, the property would not have been able to reopen for small conferences and weddings. When her employees returned, she still worked closely alongside them to thoroughly clean rooms, and even supported Airlie’s sister properties that were struggling to bring on staff once reopened.
