5 reasons every hotelier needs to read Hotel Tales
It is with great pleasure that we present to you Even More Hotel Tales, the third instalment of the Hotel Tales series!
If you are in the hotel industry and have yet to read any of the books in the series, here are 5 reasons every hotelier needs to read Hotel Tales:
1. It is Honest
No secrets, no sugar-coating – only candid and bona fide accounts from hoteliers of all ranks and positions. This compilation of stories is about as honest an exposé as you can get about the true expectations required of a hotelier. Forget job descriptions – this is the real deal!
2. Once-in-a-Lifetime Experiences
How often does the chance to gain insight into personal and never-been-told stories from ‘old hands’ come along? The answer is, not often at all! So do not miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in the wild world of the hotel industry and relive some truly unique experiences of brave Butlers right up to savvy General Managers of prominent establishments from all around the world.
3. Tips and Tricks
Pinning a man down on the bed to keep him calm? Using butter to lubricate a gentleman stuck in the bathtub? Arming one’s self with kitchen cleavers to defend against an angry wedding mob? Pick up priceless tips and tricks on how to deal with unconventional occupational challenges – lessons you will never learn in the classroom!
4. Be Encouraged
Let’s face it – being in the service sector and having to deal with people on a daily basis is no walk in the park. A nasty situation or unreasonable guest can quickly turn a bright and shiny day to a dark and gloomy one, and ‘service with a smile’ is always expected of us even when we are at our absolute lowest. No one understands this better than those who have gone before us, so be encouraged by the triumphs of battle-tested veterans of the industry, and know that you are not alone in this journey.
5. For Love of the Job
Time and time again have I seen enthusiastic young graduates from some of the best hotel schools in the region slowly grow disillusioned after experiencing their first taste of the harsh realities of the industry. Therefore, my hope for Hotel Tales is that it will inspire the next generation of Hospitality hopefuls to develop a passion for their craft, and to remind them that behind the challenges lies a genuinely rewarding and fulfilling career. The heroes of Hotel Tales have and continue to thrive, and so can you!
