Will Your Guests Remember You

It is amazing to me that none of the hotels we stayed at have offered even a small token of a gift, such as a simple fridge magnet, so that I would remember where I had stayed. I must say that, even in hotels where I had a great experience, I could not recall the exact name of the brand. Was it a Marriott? Was it a Westin? Maybe it was a Fairfield!

They are certain things we unconsciously look for before we settle on a facility and, Ken Burgin, in his podcast really spells it out well - we strongly suggest you subscribe (and no, we don't get paid to sponsor him!) Some simple steps (that require time and effort!) Offer local produce!? Part of going away on vacation Read More...

Hospitality Business And The Small Details

In the hospitality business, we know that when we are taking care of our guest it's not just the actions of service such as pouring the water, handing out room cards, taking menus to a table... It's all the little pieces that are connected to the experience. Things like cleanliness can really impact the impressions the guest have on your business. Or when giving someone a seat that is wobbly or springs are coming out of it looks dirty Read More...
