EMPLOYER’S FEEDBACK

Find below what our partners say about our students/alumni


““I prefer to recruit directly from American Hotel Academy”

Logo Teleferic Grand HotelI love to come here because here, I  can still see the sparkle in the eyes of the students when they are talking about hospitality. They have a willingness to learn and an enthusiasm that I rarely find in many of the other schools. To all the staff at American Hotel Academy, I say  “Keep up the good work

aldemar_logo130Catalin Adrian has been chosen and awarded as the best trainee of Olympian Village and Royal Olympian for the month of August 2013. From the beginning of his internship, he showed great interest to learn and obtain new skills. He is a hard working person who could handle the work pressure with the best positive attitude. He has quality on his work and great promotional potentials. We would be more than glad to cooperate with him again!”
