The North Florida Hotel & Lodging Association bestowed its top housekeeping award – the ROSE Award (Recognition of Service Excellence) to our very own Bozena Dobrzeniecki last night at the 4th Annual ROSE Awards held at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront. The event was attended by St. Francis Inn owners Joe and Margaret Finnegan, Kelly and Mike Brooks, and Bozena and her husband Mike.
ROSE (Recognition of Service Excellence) Awards recognize Northeast Florida front line hospitality employees who demonstrate excellent customer service. These industry champions showcase the region’s commitment to creating an extraordinary visitor experience. More than 150 employees were nominated and there were 74 finalists in the 24 categories.
Bozena started with the St. Francis Inn in February 2006. She quickly demonstrated that she was more than up to the task of making our guest rooms sparkle. In recent years she has taken on the additional responsibility of designing and arranging our fresh flowers for both the public rooms and guest rooms. Last year she also started taking care of the live plants around the Inn and they are flourishing. Bozena is a delight here at the Inn with her quick smile and sunny disposition.
