Hospitality Case Study

The most memorable hospitality experience that I have had actually started out as a very negative situation. We checked into our hotel on a very hot evening and we were pleased to walk into a room that was nice and cool because the hotel had turned the air conditioner on prior to our arrival. However, we noticed almost immediately that the air conditioner was extremely loud.

The experience started out negatively and could have become a very negative experience for us. For example, the hotel could have apologized but informed us that they had no other rooms available. They might have offered us coupons for a subsequent stay or for free meals but that would not have been a satisfactory solution and would have resulted in a much different outcome, particularly with regard to the five dimensions of service. Because the hotel handled the situation in a way that genuinely resolved the problem satisfactorily and provided us with the hospitality experience we had paid for and expected, we provided positive word-of-mouth feedback to others. For example, we left a detailed comment on the website where we had booked out stay explaining that we were impressed with the way that hotel management responded to and resolved our problem.
