Is your reservation staff determining the potential guest’s needs?

 

 

  Regal Hospitality Group’s Quality Assurance Evaluation program is designed to answer the following questions for the hotel management team.

 

Regal Hospitality Group has developed the Hotel Reservation Evaluation Program so we can provide our clients with the answers to several important questions:

 

  1. Is your reservation staff determining the potential guest’s needs?

  2. Is your reservation staff selling the hotel’s benefits and amenities?

  3. Is your reservations staff quoting “rack rates” first before offering discounts?

  4. Is your reservations staff asking for the sale?

Since your reservations department has a direct effect on your hotel’s REVPAR and ADR , it is crucial that hotel management know exactly how well their reservations staff is performing.  Unnecessary discounting or lack of closing skills can account for hundreds of thousands of dollars annually in lost revenues.

 

The Program

 

The Hotel Reservation Evaluation Program evaluates your in-house reservations agents in such areas as:

  •         Initial telephone contact

  •         Ascertaining customer needs

  •         Selling the amenities and benefits of your hotel

  •         Quoting of rates from top to bottom tier

  •         Closing skills of the sales agent

Many of our clients choose to have their reservations departments evaluated on a monthly basis. This allows the hotel’s management to define strengths and weaknesses in their reservations department and allows for corrective training to maximize revenues for the hotel.

 

The Process
