Len Lim – Fairmont Empress Hotel

Len Limresized

The nomination for Len, otherwise known as “Lennnie”, was received from Steven Halliday, an “ex-Yukoner”.  Steven wrote:

“Lenny” is the best bartender I have ever known, and I’ve known him for 30 years, in the same job in the The Fairmont Empress Hotel Bengal Lounge. 

Three days ago, I phoned the hotel to enquire as to whether or not he still worked there.  When told he was on shift, I was transferred to his line, and, after my opening remarks, he remembered me by name by the sound of my voice. 

Today, my new girlfriend and I went to visit the Bengal Room and he recognized me on entrance, and acknowledged me by name.  We later determined that the last time I had seen him was over 15 years ago!

As usual, his service, demeanour and charm were first rate.  He charmed the pants off my new lady.  Bravo, and thank-you Lenny!
