Often regarded as the nerve center of

the hotel, the front office is where


guests check in and out , payments on
accounts are made and messages are
exchanged. Front desk staff should be
people-oriented, good at solving
problems and attentive to details. The
actions and attitudes displayed toward
guests are a big part of what the hotel
is selling.......SERVICE!
