After a stint in the Army, Landwirth took a course in hotel management. He first worked in New York City and then in 1954 became manager of the Starlight Motel in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Landwirth was also reported to be one of the original owners (which also included astronaut John Glenn) of the hotel that is now known as the Seralago Hotel & Suites Main Gate East near Orlando, Florida. He would give away free rooms to ill children whose arrangements to go to their desired vacation were taking too long, somewhat in the same nature as the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
