Far From Ordinary

It’s not just about the place, it’s about the people.

Between beautifully decorated ballrooms, perfectly plated dinners, hand mixed cocktails, and well-kept hotel rooms, we often only notice the final product of an experience. However, a Far From Ordinary frontline employee works tirelessly to exceed our every expectation.

Frontline employees are an integral part of every hospitality experience in Aurora. From servers and bartenders to bellhops and front desk associates, they ensure visits are seamless from start to finish. Ultimately, they’re what make every guest experience memorable.

To showcase Aurora’s best frontline employees, Visit Aurora presents the Far From Ordinary Award designed to honor employees that exhibit outstanding customer service – both to new faces and team members.
