A concierge (French pronunciation: ​[kɔ̃sjɛʁʒ]) is an employee of an apartment building, hotel or office building who serves guests, with duties similar to those of a receptionist. The position can also be maintained by a security officer over the graveyard shift. A similar position, known as the portero, exists in Spanish-speaking regions. In medieval times, the concierge was an officer of the king who was charged with executing justice, with the help of his bailiffs.[citation needed] Later on in the 18th century, the concierge was a high official of the kingdom, appointed by the king to maintain order and oversee the police and prisoner records.
