Do hotels hire minors or younger people?

I'm looking to get a job in the hotel industry. I was wondering if hotels hire minors (I'm 17 1/2) or will they hire me when I'm 18 soon? I have some experience hosting at a local restaurant, so I know how to be personable as well as work a cash register, do credit card things, etc. I was hoping to see if they would want someone for front desk or housekeeping or something. I'm also a male so I don't know how that would affect anything. I was thinking of looking into choice hotels (Comfort, Sleep, Quality, Clarion, etc) as well as stuff like Hampton, Hamilton, Ramada, etc. I thought maybe they'd be more interested in hiring someone younger than a Marriot or Hyatt. Anyone?

I think they will hire at 18. If you check out the websites they may give you the information. I worked in a hotel (small) at the desk when I was 19 and in college. We had a staff of males and females, almost even. It was interesting work-met a lot of different people. Good luck!
