Assignment Asset- Scenario

Hotel Escargo Mission Statement

Serve the business and pleasure traveler by making customer satisfaction priority number one through top quality service, amenities, comfortable surroundings, and friendly employees.

Problem Statement

Upon the annual review of the Hotel Escargo chain, it was discovered that there was room for improvement with the check-in and check-out system implemented by the Rooms Division Department. In addition, there are many areas that the hotel can improve to raise the overall quality and customer satisfaction.

The current process used to check guests in and out of the hotel is inefficient for both the customer and the hotel, and a new process must be developed that provides a convenient and efficient experience for the customer, as well as one that makes the best use of the hotel’s resources.

Industry Standards

The following are the process standards by which hotels can gain valuable points and awards like the “Roadster Four Diamond” or the “Touring Association Five Platinum Star Award.”

Check-in procedure:

• Use the guest’s name at least three times. • Look up to greet the guest and use the phrases “Good morning/afternoon/evening.” • Acknowledge guests waiting in the line. • Ask for the guest’s name if not given. • Retrieve reservation, check the room status, and retrieve registration card. • Ask for photo ID to verify reservation information. • Present registration card to guest to verify that the information is correct and ask the guest

to sign it. Confirm the following:

• credit card • departure date • room category (bedding, smoking preference, view) and rate

Next:

• Inform a bell person. • Change reservation status to in-house. • Make and present the keys. • Wish the guest an enjoyable stay.

Check-in process must be completed in 4 minutes or less.

Check-out procedure:

 

• Use the guest’s name at least three times. • Look up to greet the guest and use the phrases “Good morning/afternoon/evening.” • Acknowledge guests waiting in line. • Ask for the guest’s name if not given. • Retrieve reservation, check guest’s account, and retrieve information on credit card expenses.

Current Procedures: Hotel Escargo Check-in Process

The check-in process starts when the hotel clerk at the front desk verifies whether or not the customer made a reservation. There are two ways to verify the reservation: reference an ID number OR verify a driver’s license or some other form of ID.

The guest retrieves a key or key card at the front desk. The clerk notifies the bellman if the customer needs help to his/her assigned room. In cases where the room is unavailable due to cleaning or otherwise, the clerk informs the guest of the situation and determines if another equivalent room may be assigned; otherwise, the guest waits. Once the guest is informed that the room is available, the clerk notifies the bellman as required to assist the guest to his/her room. If there is no vacancy, the clerk will contact another hotel as a good faith gesture.

Error! Current Procedure: Change request

The average time a guest must wait when requesting changes (such as a room move or change of room category) needs to be no longer than six minutes. If extra time was needed to find the right room, the manager on duty would explain the condition to the guest and immediately find another room. Excessive change requests present negative impacts on all departments within the organization and increase the time in assigning a customer to a room. The following are action items implemented when a change request is initiated:

1 Manager on duty has to request housekeeping to clean the room again. 2 Bell desk attendant removes all luggage from the old room and takes it to the new assigned room. 3 In the event that amenities were assigned, a staff member must move the amenities from the original assigned room to the new room. 4 The front desk annotates the changes into the reservation computer network and issues a receipt to the customer.
