HOTEL TIPS AND TRICKS

Believe or not most trips offer an opportunity for a room upgrade, late check-out time or another bonus curing a hotel stay, whether you’ll be enjoying those perks, however, is determined at least in part by the person sitting behind the fron desk. These key tips will get you in that individual’s good graces.

DEMONSTRATE LOYALTY

Avoid booking through a third party source such a Expedia.They can see that information and could immediately write you off as not being a loyal customer.  Reservations made through internet discount sites are almost always slated for our worst rooms.

If you decide to use a their party to try to get a discounted price there may be less incentive to please.

PLAY THE PART

Travelers wearing something nice, such as a business suit or dress, are often met with more respect and are far more likely to earn the upgrade.  It’s also smart to play up any special occasion,  Not to suggest lying, but the time around birthdays, anniversaries or other occasions might just warrant an upgrade or bottle of champagne

GET PERSONAL

This is good tip for life in general.  Get the name of the individual you are speaking with.  Not only will it make the interaction more personal, but it will also help you get their attention when you need it.

DISH OUT THE TIP

It’s completely permissible to tip the person at the front desk. According to USA Today, although it is not required, guests are encouraged to show their gratitude through a tip. Anywhere from  a $5 to  $20 bill should help.  When delivering the cash, never impose pressure.  Simply slip it over during the check-in process and say something light but indicative, such as “This is for whatever you can do. And if not, don’t worry about it.  I appreciate the work you’re doing.

 

BE KIND

 More than anything, be kind and patient,  Nothing is worse than a poor attitude or condescending remark,  Even in the midst  of chaos, simply wait your turn and let them know it’s completely all right.  A long day of flying might make you cranky. Resist! This is your shot to stand out in a positive light.

GUIDE TO MAKING A HOTEL RESERVATION
  • Provide the hotel or online travel agent with the check-in and check-out dates for your vacation. …
  • Confirm the number of guests in your party, and choose a room type. …
  • Narrow down a hotel location. …
  • Ask about guestroom amenities. …
  • Ask about hotel services. …
  • Reserve your hotel room using a credit card. …

STEP 1

Provide the hotel or online travel agent with the check-in and check-out dates for your vacation. Request the daily check-out time to minimize confusion and avoid late fees and other penalties. Inquire about express check-in and check-out for faster service. (Fees should not apply.)

STEP 2

Confirm the number of guests in your party, and choose a room type. Hotel rooms can vary from single and double occupancy to family and honeymoon accommodations. The number of guests, including infants and children, will determine how many beds you book. Many hotels offer crib rentals and roll-out beds for children.

STEP 3

Narrow down a hotel location. Large hotel chains offer multiple locations, so use a travel guide or map to determine the best location for your travel needs.

STEP 4

Ask about guestroom amenities. Standard amenities include telephone, television and air conditioning. If you require Internet service, newspaper delivery or cable channels, ask in advance if these amenities are available and if additional fees apply.

STEP 5

Ask about hotel services. Not all hotels feature room service, swimming pools and laundry, so ask in advance if these services are available.

STEP 6

Reserve your hotel room using a credit card. Hotel reservation lines and online travel agents require a credit card or debit card with the Visa or MasterCard logo to complete a hotel reservation. Although some hotels require only a deposit (which may or may not be refundable depending on hotel policy) to complete a room reservation, others require full payment. Get a confirmation number for your reservation.

 

 

One time it can be cheaper to book a hotel with a third party site is when you book a Hotwire or Priceline Express Deal. The only downside is that you don’t know the name of the hotel until after you have paid. Priceline claims you can save up to 60% with their Express Deals.Aug 28, 2017
