Meet Frontdesk: City Manager

For our very first Meet Frontdesk, we spoke with Chantal Doxon, Tampa and St. Petersburg City Manager. Chantal began at Frontdesk 2.5 years ago as a cleaner after moving to Tampa, FL. Since then, she has transitioned into a City Manager role after showing she embodies all of Frontdesk’s core values. Prior to Frontdesk, Chantal was getting her degree in Interior Architecture. In her free time, she enjoys doing puzzles, boxing, and being on the water. 

What do you do in your role as a City Manager?

I make sure units are clean and that maintenance and cleaners are doing what they are supposed to so we can prevent any issues with guests. I also work with property managers to make sure there are no issues with guests before or during their stay. In summary, I am there to help with the day to day issues and being there for guests for whatever they need assistance with. 

What do you enjoy most about your role?

I enjoy being able to contribute to our guest’s stays. I know how important vacationing is, so if there is any way I can make it better for a guest, I’m happy to help!

What has been your biggest learning experience since starting at Frontdesk?

Personally, since starting at Frontdesk, I’ve learned how to adapt and adapt quickly. Problem solving in a timely manner is key in everyday operations to make sure things get done and done well.

What advice would you give to others in your role?

I would tell others, that if you find yourself confused or feeling overwhelmed, not knowing what to do, reach out. Everyone is willing to help and more likely than not, we have been in the same situation and can guide you through it.

Bucket list place to visit?

I have so many! But the next place on my list to go to go is Thailand!

What is one must-do or must-try place if someone visits Tampa or St. Petersburg?

There are so many! The St. Pete Pier is a must! Or 7th Ave in Ybor City if you’re looking for a good night on the town.

With a line waiting at the door each day, it’s no secret that lunch at Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room is one of the best in town! Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room offers a unique dining experience by serving family-style meals at communal tables. This historic Southern diner has been family-owned since 1943 and continues to be a popular lunch spot.


We recommend Alligator Soul for an upscale, intimate dinner. Once a basement grain warehouse, this Southern eatery offers organic and local ingredients for a fresh, delicious menu.

Savannah Specialty: Oysters

Savannah is a city that loves oysters, so it’s no surprise that they are served at nearly every restaurant in the city. One of our favorite stops for oysters is Sorry Charlie’s. This casual seafood spot features a raw bar, southern specialties, and craft cocktails.


Savannah, Georgia is a lively city home to many bars great for drinking, dancing, and live music. A few of our favorites in the city include Wet Willies, Alley Cat Lounge, and the Artillery Bar. Each bar has its own story and personality but they are all filled with unique cocktails and wide beer selections.

Things to Do

Steamboat Cruise

One of the unique experiences in New Orleans is the steamboat tours. There is no better way to cruise the Mississippi River than by steamboat. The current S.S. Natchez boat offers several tours throughout the day including an evening jazz tour with dinner, a day jazz cruise, or a Sunday brunch jazz cruise. The steamboat cruises are a perfect way to take in the beauty of New Orleans from the water.

Jackson Square

Jackson Square is a historic park in the French Quarter and is also considered the heart of the city. The park was declared a National Historic Landmark for its role in history as the site where Louisiana became United States territory in 1803. The site is now a place to view famous architectural works and attend street art events.



There are several delicious breakfast and brunch options in NOLA but one of our favorites is Ruby Slipper. The eatery offers all-day brunch and eye-opening cocktails while preparing meals from scratch and using local ingredients when possible. The menu offers American, Cajun, and Creole dishes but is sure to have something for everyone.


Napoleon House is located in the heart of the historical French Quarter in the heart of New Orleans. If you’re looking for a true Louisianan lunch, this is the place! They offer muffalettas, po’boys, jambalaya, seafood gumbo, and other Creole staples.


We recommend Herbsaint, an upscale French and American restaurant with views of historic St. Charles Avenue, for a nice dinner. Herbsaint offers local and sustainably sourced seafood and meats and has an extensive wine list.


New Orleans has one of the highest bars per capita in the US so there is no shortage of bars in the city. NOLA is also the birthplace of several cocktails including the hurricane, the grasshopper, the sazerac, and more! Bourbon street is packed with lively, eclectic bars. A few of our favorites are Tropical Isle, Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Bar, and The Swamp on Bourbon Street. Not only is the city known for its bar scene, but New Orleans is also famous for its drive-thru daiquiris.
