26-year Manager of Landmark Hotel Leaves Vacancy at the Top

April 16, 2006 - Posted at 12:27 p.m. CST

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) _ In Hot Springs, a man whose name is

synonymous with the grand hotel he has managed for more than 26

years is taking a well-deserved retirement. Horst Fischer worked

his last day yesterday as vice president and general manager of the

Arlington Resort Hotel and Spa and the Majestic Hotel Resort Spa.

Fischer, who was born in Berlin before World War Two, has worked in

the hotel business all of his life. Fisher moved to Hot Springs in

1979 and became a driving force in the resort town's tourism

industry. In honor of his work, Fischer has been inducted into the

Arkansas Tourism Hall of Fame. He and his wife, Linda, plan to move

to Hilton Head Island.
