One of the best secrets of getting happy customers who rave about your hotel is setting the right customer expectations.
If your guests start off with the wrong expectation, they'll end up feeling disappointed or even cheated on. And when this happens, you'll end up with lowered customer loyalty, negative reviews, and lower revenues.
However, there're hotels across the world that can amaze their guests beyond the customer's expectations. Some will even come up with creative and unique guest engagement ideas such as renting you a fish to keep you company, installing unique lighting and shower systems, and cleaning those spots nobody cares to clean.
