18 years serving this country in the Navy as a First-Class Culinary Specialist is something, we know Gabriel is proud of and we certainly are thankful for his service too! His military background, 30+ years of hospitality service, his high standards, and the respect he has earned from all he works with has allowed him to lead a stellar housekeeping team at our Diamond Bar property since January 2011. We knew his success story at Ayres was just beginning in 2008 when he was hired as Breakfast Chef at one of our Ontario locations!

Ayres prides ourselves in participating in local ROP and Career Technical programs. Beatriz Peon’s journey to Ayres is an ROP success story we are certainly proud of! In February 2004 and through her High School Hospitality ROP program, Beatriz landed at one of our Ontario properties as a Front Desk Agent. Very soon after, she was promoted to Sales and in 2012, she took an even bigger leap to oversee our Diamond Bar property as General Manager. We could not have planned it better. Beatriz is a ‘hands-on’ Manager who dives in to ensure her team’s success, her guests needs are met at every level and her hotel’s results are top-notch!

Since 2011, Luis has made his mother very proud and proven Ayres’ loves to promote from within! He has worked his way from Housekeeping/Laundry, Housekeeping Supervisor, Interim Executive Housekeeper, Front Desk, Front Desk Supervisor, Sales Coordinator and most recent in April 2019 to our Fountain Valley property as Assistant General Manager. Up is the only way for these two!

84+ years of service and going strong! The Martinez family knows a little something about having a career with Ayres! It all started when Alfredo joined our Ayres in-house Corporate Construction Team back in November of 1995. Soon after, Alfredo recruited his father Jose to join our Construction Team and his brother George to work in Engineering at our Costa Mesa property. And in July of 2003, we hired another family member, Karina to our Costa Mesa property as a Reservation Agent. She now is our Front Office Manager. Today, the Martinez family remains a large part of the Ayres’ family’s hospitality history and we look forward to their many more years of service to come!

Executive Housekeeper
Ayres Hotel Laguna Woods

“Great things come in small packages!” said her former Ayres Hotel General Manager. Eva’s work ethics started at a very young age when she started working for her family’s restaurant at the age of 7. Through a recommendation made by her friend, she joined our Ayres Costa Mesa property team in February of 1995. Her dedication towards every housekeeping task and position led her to an Executive Housekeeper promotion in 2007. Eva’s leadership from the front and compassion for her team members has allowed the quality and cleanliness of our Laguna Woods property to be maintained since her arrival as Executive Housekeeper in 2007.
