Otelier Announces 2024 Night Auditor of the Year

In 2023, Otelier launched Night Auditor Appreciation Day as a way for leaders across hospitality to recognize their employees who are critical to running a successful business but often go unnoticed because they work third shift. 

Night auditors handle guest issues throughout the night while managing important business data from the day, ensuring financial accuracy and compliance. They wear many hats, from accountant to bartender to security guard, and they’re a key part of preparing the daytime staff for a great day ahead. 

This year, Otelier received nearly 100 submissions for 2024 Night Auditor of the Year, each including kind notes of appreciation from colleagues, managers and district leaders across the world. 

Then, on May 18, Night Auditor Appreciation Day, hoteliers recognized their night auditors with gift bags, breakfasts and social shoutouts. Check out a few examples below.

“Happy Night Auditor Appreciation Day! 👏 Even before the AI era, the Night Audit was going out of vogue. Call us old-fashioned, but we believe in having a front desk staffed 24/7 for our guests and that our audit team plays an integral role in our operational success. Our team is too shy to take a picture, but we'd like to take today, and every day, to recognize and thank them for all that they do!”
