HANDLING GUEST COMPLAINT
By: Gary Willhite
Break Studios Contributing Writer
How to handle hotel guest complaints is through attentiveness. Such
attentiveness requires the obvious, which is attention, along with
genuine sensitivity and substantiation. When a guest believes there is
cause to lodge a complaint, the expectation of an effect exists. Almost
all guest compliments are received by the hotel’s front desk staff. As
hotels constitute a major portion of the hospitality field, excellence
in customer service for guests is an industry standard. While a hotel
provides accommodations, it is at the discretion of front desk staff to
provide guest services. These services also encompass the occasional
opportunity to resolve hotel guest complaints.
To handle hotel guest complaints, you will benefit from a familiarity in or with:
- Knowledge of relevant hotel policy
- Front desk guest parameters
- Managerial resources
- Maintenance access
- Customer service
- Resolution expertise
- Retention skills
Listen attentively to the hotel guest’s complaint. It
is important for a desk clerk—or any other member of the hotel’s
staff—to make eye contact upon listening to the guest. The desk clerk
should maintain serious facial expression, and poise in posture that
demonstrates attention. Avoid any temptation to interrupt or interject
while the guest is voicing a complaint. This strategy shows respect to a
guest that is dissatisfied, while it enables the desk clerk to
understand the problem.
Identify with the hotel guest. Rather than to express
an all-so-common, “I am sorry,” sincerely acknowledge with a full
apology for the guest’s unfortunate experience or inconvenience.
Apologizing does not reflect upon a desk clerk’s representation, though
rather and appropriately on the behalf of the hotel. When a hotel
representative identifies with the guest, an opportunity to establish
communication and confidence is possible.
Assess the complaint. In a proactive manner,
substantiate any circumstance or issues that are adversely impacting the
guest’s hotel stay. In a feasible fashion, promptly advise this guest
that a solution to the problem will be sought. Display sensitivity, and
inquire of the guest if any form of temporary comfort or convenience may
suffice while this complaint receives attention. If at all possible,
deliver on what the guest may temporarily request. Should the interim
request be impossible to provide, suggest other momentary alternatives
that are available.
Consider the guest’s complaint. Quickly categorize
the complaint as to its origin—essential, amenity or service. Determine
how the complaint ranks in its severity. Decide the best course of
action to seek a resolution. Contemplate if such a complaint is within
the scope of the hotel’s front desk to resolve, or will it necessitate a
more extensive or external option.
Plot the course towards resourceful action. Use the
origin of a guest’s complaint to seek resources. Decipher if the nature
of the matter is a housekeeping, maintenance, amenity, or service issue.
Draw upon a responsible hotel source that correlates with whatever
matter is at cause for the complaint.
Delegate a complaint to the appropriate resource. For
an optimum resolution, immediately make all possible efforts to contact
the appropriate member of hotel personnel. Upon reaching the applicable
staff member, thoroughly, though concisely, explain the guest’s
complaint. Inquire of the responsible staff member as to how the issue
will be resolved, and the approximate time that it may take to remedy
such a posed situation.
Apprise the guest of action. Advise the
inconvenienced guest as to how this hotel is progressing to resolve an
unacceptable situation. Should the scope of the problem be excessive in
either scope or time frame, then take a different course of action, and
accommodate the guest.
Compensate for the hotel’s mishap. When a guest’s
complaint has been addressed and resolved, do not let the inconvenience
pass without retribution. Dependent upon the infraction, present this
guest with extra amenities, service, upgrade, or even an additional
night’s stay. Through such an ethical act of hospitality, both guest
retention and satisfaction are achieved.
If circumstances are at an extreme, exercise alternative options. Should
the complaint, upon validation, be to the extremes that exceed a
reasonable remedy, relocate the guest to equal or greater
accommodations—without any further charges
