VB Foundation Hosts Hotel Tour for Hospitality Students

Posted on December 19, 2018

The Visit Baltimore Foundation hosted thirty-five students in Lodging and Management and Culinary tracks in the Hospitality Academy at Baltimore's NAF high school for a behind the scenes tour of Baltimore's Hotel industry on December 6, 2018 - our second such partnership with the school in three years.

The students toured four properties in the downtown area of various sizes, target markets and service styles in order to familiarize themselves with the hotel industry in their hometown. At these properties, they spoke with employees of various levels and learned about the many career pathways available in our hospitality industry. The tour is designed to align with NAF’s curriculum and enable the students to compare the amenities, guest markets and operations of each hotel property.


This year’s participating hotel partners are four Visit Baltimore members: The Lord Baltimore Hotel, The Days Inn Inner Harbor, The Four Seasons Hotel and the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor. Transportation was provided by Academy Express and sponsored by the participating hotel properties and the Visit Baltimore Foundation.
