Albany - The new hotel and conference center in downtown Albany is now hiring. Next week, the Hilton Garden Inn is holding a job fair to fill 70 positions from housekeepers to waiters.

Construction of the new hotel is in over-drive, with the grand opening set for August 9th. Now, a staff is needed to run the hotel. "We've already filled all our management staff and we've hired about five desk agents. We still have a lot of positions available. We have about 70 people we'll be hiring total," said General Manager Todd Cleveland.

The hotel will be holding a job fair Tuesday at the Department of Labor. They're looking for banquet and restaurant servers, bartenders, front desk agents, housekeepers, laundry workers, and full kitchen staff.

"We're definitely looking for experience in hotels, preferably, or in restaurants. But, anyone that has a great personality for the hospitality industry and loves working with the public, we want to talk to them as well," said Cleveland.

The company running the hotel offers health care. "We have a great benefits package. Full in terms of dental, medical, and vision," said Cleveland.

The hotel needs mostly full-time employees, but there are a few part-time positions available. The employees will go straight to work, training for about two weeks before the first guests check-in come August.

The job fair is July 12th from 9:00AM to 5:00PM at the Department of Labor in Albany.
