The Grand Summit Hotel has long played host to the room accommodation needs of wedding, bar mitzvah, and other social gatherings from guests attending events at the area’s many fine catering venues.
It is no secret that a hotel is a preferred venue for large social events when considering the lodging component under the same roof, offering the guest the convenience of a good night’s sleep just steps from the party.
Whether or not you are hosting your event at the historic Hotel, the team at the classic destination is happy to host a block of rooms for social guests who love the proximity to one of the finest downtowns in the country and direct train service to midtown Manhattan.
The hotel is proud to announce that long-time employee Rebecca Allocco of Summit will be taking over the responsibility of social sales for the front office team. Born and raised in the town of Summit, Rebecca graduated from Summit High School in 2012. While in high school, Rebecca was a member of numerous volunteer clubs including the Key Club, Environmental Club, Toys 4 Tots, and peer tutoring for special needs children.
The Allocco family are long-time residents of Summit and staples of the community. Rebecca describes them as a middle-class Summit family. Her dad is Italian and Polish and mom Cuban-American. Rebecca began her career at the hotel in 2010 and returned this past year during her senior year while attending Montclair State University where she is in the process of completing her Bachelors in Clinical Psychology this May.
“Rebecca is an absolute pleasure to have on our team, and we consider ourselves lucky to have such a bright young star as part of our Front Office,” says Front Office Manager Koen Schreij. “Rebecca has proven herself to be an asset to the property, and we are delighted to give her this very important responsibility of our business.
Rebecca will be responsible for handling all requests for social room blocks from both in-house and out-of-house guests of the Hotel. Groups of 10 or more rooms will have the personal attention of Rebecca from the initial call through check out.
“It is so great to see how Rebecca has grown with us from 2010 when her father who we know really well, asked if we could get her a job,” says Assistant General Manager Michael Marino. “We know that Rebecca has big plans to pursue a Master’s Degree in Psychology, but we will keep her as long as she wants to stay.”
