Example text

Although some continue to regard sales and marketing as synonymous, most hotels no longer operate in the seller’s market and even massive sales effort is not likely to generate a sustained high volume of business, if consumer needs are not genuinely met in the planning, design and subsequent operation of an hotel. The basic hotel concept outlined at the beginning of this chapter stresses the view of the hotel, as it is seen by the hotel user rather than the hotel operator, as a business to meet the needs of hotel users.

In the course of business sales accounts and invoices are filed separately and only recorded in the book after payment has been received or made. At the end of the period unrecorded transactions such as outstanding sales accounts, unpaid invoices, prepayments and accruals are taken into account in preparing final accounts. A visitor’s tabular ledger with individual accounts for all resident guests may be extended to include separate accounts for functions, as well as for total cash and credit sales in the restaurant and bar to customers using these facilities without taking up sleeping accommodation.

Moreover, size is not a requirement of a viable hotel operation, as it is in some other industries. Most hotels provide more than one product – rooms, meals and refreshments and sometimes also other services – and they do so in various combinations. It is, therefore, less than satisfactory to define a small hotel for our purposes in terms of a particular room or bed capacity. Such other criteria, as a given level of investment or sales, mean different things in relation to hotels of different standards and price levels, and their values change with time.
