‘What our customers want is to take their families on a free vacation as soon as it is possible,’ says the CEO.
However, the thing that almost all respondents said about the company was that it always provides the same level of
high quality service.
Business people do not appreciate having to mix with ordinary tourists.
Every day, there is a 15-minute exercise on things like how to welcome a guest, or how to handle a complaint.

the guest rooms was the most important thing.
The respondents often mentioned the company’s loyalty program.
The ideal place to stay for a business traveller
We turned to our readers and asked them to name the best places for
the business traveller to stay.
It was virtually impossible to find the single best hotel. We asked our readers to name their favourite one and got almost
1,200 different answers. 1)______ The hotel staff and health club were also high on the list, but the real surprise was high-
speed Internet access, which came a strong second.

Such attentive service is no accident. ‘We spend well over $100 million a year on training,’ says J.W. Marriott Jr., chairman
and CEO. 3)______ I tell our people: ‘We don’t manufacture anything. We provide experiences.’
Consistency and the number of locations were also reasons why 12% of the respondents picked Hilton Hotels – No.2
company in the survey. 4)______ It allows members to earn points for using the services of companies under the Hilton
umbrella. ‘I can stay at Hilton Inn and earn points toward Hilton stays,’ one subscriber noted.
No.3 on the best hotel chain list was Westin, something of a surprise since, with just 120 hotels worldwide, it’s much smaller
than many of its rivals.
Readers’ choices of their favourite hotel loyalty programs were similar to the list of their favourite hotel chains. Here again,
readers chose these programs for the number of locations and variety of brands under one plan. Last summer, Marriott
improved its program to allow frequent guests to earn free stays 30% faster than many of its rivals. 5)______
