The Nebraska Hotel & Lodging Association is proud to recognize Mr. Petroc “Rocky” Sandiford as the recipient of the Nebraska Hotel & Lodging Association’s Outstanding Manager of the Year STAR award.

Rocky started his career at the DoubleTree by Hilton Omaha Downtown as the Assistant Front Office Manager. He truly made a huge positive impact on the guests and the team around him. Rocky is always willing to go above and beyond for the guests to make sure their stay is top notch.

His commitment to service and his team are recognized constantly through guest surveys and by his peers voting him “Leader of the Quarter” in 2017. His excellence extends beyond that to the community.

Rocky traveled to New York City in January to go through Hilton Front Office Academy, where he represented the DoubleTree and brought back lots of helpful tools for the team and guests as he continues to lead by example.

Congratulations Rocky!!!
