  40. Hotel Services • Pre-reading questions: • What is the main goal of the hotel industry? • What would you find if you were to spend the night in hotel with all the very latest features? • How do you understand service is the keynote of any hotel? • What are the room attendant’s duties?

  41. Passage A The hotel industry is a mature industry in which consistent service is essential. Hotels, through offering exceptional service, strive to create an environment which allows the guest to feel completely safe, relaxed, comfort-table and just plain pampered. The main goal is to bundle a group of services allowing the guest to feel as if staying at a hotel is better and more convenient than staying at home. This ,of course, is a huge task and can only be accomplished by demanding a continuously perfect level of service offered by the hotel staff. Hotels today are quite

  42. different from those of the past . People who stay in them are generally traveling for business, or they are touring or on vacation. So hotels are designed mainly to meet the needs of one of this two groups of people. Hotels designed for business people are known as commercial or transient hotels. Hotels for people on vacation are called vacation, or resort hotels. And there is also another type of hotel called a residential hotel. This is designed to meet the needs of people who want to leave on a hotel. Hotels have, for the most part , kept up with modern developments in science and engineering. Travelers have come to expect comfortable rooms with pleasing

  43. decorations . The hotel industry spends millions of dollars each year to make certain that travelers are not disappointed. If you were to spend the night in a hotel with all the very latest feature, you might find a panel of buttons at the head of your bed. While lying in bed you could push these buttons to turn on the air conditioner, lock the door, turn off the television set or radio, and turn out the lights. In your room you might also find an ice—making machine and a coffee-making unit. Service is the keynote of any hotel. Today the hungry hotel guests may have a snack in a small coffee shop or a dinner of many courses in a large dining room, or if he prefers to

  44. stay in his room, he may telephone or room service and order food to be brought up to his room. The traveler who arrives with his clothes wrinkled may call for valet service and have his clothes picked up, pressed and returned. Businessman may call for a hotel stenographer to type their letters. People who become ill may call for the hotel doctor. In addition, many kinds of shops and stores are located in hotels to meet the needs of people who are away from home. In a large hotel there is usually a barber shop, beauty shop, newsstand, drugstore, florist shop, gift shop,

  45. dress shop, jewelry shop, and theater ticket agency. Passage B The actual work of cleaning and caring for the guest room is performed by the room attendants. Their duties include recognizing the guest, introducing room facilities and service, making or changing beds, dusting furniture, sweeping or cleaning floors and carpets, washing bathrooms, replacing towels and washing clothes, making up room and doing turn-down service. They should also supply any personal service to satisfy the guests’ reasonable demands, such as wake-up service,
