A professional demeanor and the ability to handle requests promptly and accurately will be essential. You will also be the communication hub for your team including Guest Services and Sales so they are always “in the loop”.
- Be a Systems Expert — this role works on with reservations and other hotel systems throughout the day, so you will need to be computer friendly if you are to do your job as efficiently and accurately as possible.
- Be an Expert Tracker — who does and does not show up for their reservation; room availability; wait listed guests; alternative arrangements for close out dates; filling and blocking rooms; communicating challenges or anticipated difficulties to those who need to know — you are the tracker and communicator of all this and more. A very important job!
