Take a wild and bumpy ride through the world of hotel management in the new book So Many Hotels, So Little Time. See the inner workings of a hotel and live the dramas that play out behind the scenes in the backdrop of hotels of all shapes and sizes.
Author Kenneth Vincent writes about his vast experiences that cover forty-six years, from 1954 to 2000. The hotel locations range over 22 states, a U.S. territory, and four other countries. He says, “I wanted to share the exciting, and sometimes scary world of hotel management. This book is a must-read for anyone intending to pursue a career in the hotel business, and an entertaining adventure to others who might never have stayed in one or have extensively traveled on business or pleasure.”
AUTHOR’S NOTE: I have taken the liberty of borrowing a technique from James Michener, a writer I greatly respect. The first third of the book deals with specific technicalities to set the stage for the story. The remainder is a synopsis of true events I have experienced in my career that are entertaining, amusing, strange, shocking and unbelievable. Anyone that travels extensively should find a new insight into what has been merely an overnight stay in the past. Enjoy!
KEN is a 46 year veteran hotelier and entrepreneur. Formerly owned two hotels, an advertising agency, a wholesale tour company, a POS company, a leasing company, and a hotel management company. The hotels included chain owned, franchises, and independents. They ranged in type from small luxury inns, to limited service properties, to large convention hotels and resorts. After retiring he authored a book, “So Many Hotels, So Little Time” in which he relates what life is like behind the scenes for a hotel manager. Ken operated more that 100 hotels and resorts in the US and Caribbean and formed eight companies. He is a firm believer that senior management should share their knowledge and experience with the next generation of management.
