While guests in a hotel or resort enjoy their vacation away from daily life, the guest room attendant ensures that their living space is still up to standards. Guest room attendants clean and maintain rooms and suites so that guests can enjoy their stay.

Being a good guest room attendant requires a lot of physical strength and stamina. Guest room attendants lift mattresses to change sheets, operate cleaning equipment, and do other menial tasks such as dusting and getting rid of trash. Guest room attendants also spend a lot of time working with cleaning chemicals and need to know which chemicals are appropriate for which surface.

Most guest room attendants do not have bachelor's degrees, they just need cleaning experience and a strong work ethic in order to succeed. Perhaps unsurprisingly, 70% of guest room attendants are women. Maybe it is time for some men to pick up the vacuums!
