it was very nice to visit the hotel and learn what it is like to work there I felt like turn down service is one of the most important things in a hotel because you need the people to feel welcome and if they are they will enjoy there stay with the good service. in order todo that you need to have good revenue management to make sure that you will have enough supplies for when the people need it. House keeping standards also show just what kind of total you are running and what are the standards you want to meet to begin with. That would possibly determine the housekeeping standards on how strict you want to keep all of the rooms clean
