Your path to becoming a host
Althoff Hotels | The Hoteliers Company
I am a passionate hotelier and am delighted that you are interested in a career with us. After all these years, the hotel sector remains the most wonderful thing for me – even though I know that it is a working environment that demands dedication and commitment. I opened my first hotel in Aachen in the 1970s when I was 21. It had 40 rooms, with bathrooms and toilets in the corridors. Circumstances required me to be cleaner, bellboy, receptionist, waiter, night porter and general manager all rolled into one. Back then, I was light years away from any glitz or glamour.
The experience also inspired today’s Company mission: “To create wonderful settings for pleasure and hospitality, enabling our guests to dream.”
Together with my wife Elke Diefenbach-Althoff, I founded the Cologne-based company now known as Althoff Hotels in 1984 with the Hotel Regent International in Cologne. Since then, the Group has grown to a total of 17 hotels with almost 2,000 rooms, around 1,500 staff, and locations in four different countries.
Striving for quality is intrinsic to my life. Quality and dedication are my passion and business. I am therefore proud to look back on the journey I have taken: to have built from the beginning a values-based family business. Frank Marrenbach took over operational management of Althoff Hotels in May 2020, in the role of CEO and co-partner.
