Mini Case Study Questions. As a guide, each answer should be approximately 400-500 words per
question. Answer all four (4) of the following questions. All answers are to be completed in the exam
15mks 1. Bill has just been transferred to the 250-room Rosewood Inn as front office manager. The
Rosewood Inn is a mid-price hotel. The inn was opened just over a year ago in a good market and its
financial performance to date has been below expectations. Besides, there have been many guest
complaints. Bill has been transferred to the Inn because he is one of the best front office managers in the
HMA company.
Bill arrived at the Inn to find a front office with no direction. Employees were not well trained and
turnover was high. Only one employee knew how to use the property management system completely.
Employees did not know what was expected of them. The reservationists complained of getting
conflicting instructions from the sales manager and the front desk manager. The previous front desk
manager did not venture to the desk very often, preferring to remain in his office and produce reports for
the general manager on why revenues were not meeting expectations.
Bill read through many guest comment cards and the assistant manager’s log. Poor employee attitudes
seemed to be a major problem, as did a lack of organization.
Finally, Bill met with various division heads and heard nothing but complaints. The housekeeping
manager told Bill that she was never included in departmental meetings. The hotel accountant said that the
front desk staff never financially balanced at the end of their shifts and the night audit was a disaster
because of it. The food and beverage manager said he made test calls to the reservation department and
they never recommended his restaurant.
With all this in mind, Bill has decided to “start from scratch- in order to meet the Inn’s objectives of happy
guests and employees, while producing an appropriate profit for the owners.
Develop strategies to improve friendliness, speed of check-in and to reduce turnover rate for this hotel.
15mks 2. Ms. Emily Lynn, reservations manager at the Educational Inn, is aware that a big convention is
scheduled during mid-week (Wednesday and Thursday), six months in the future. As a result, all hotels in
the neighboring communities are expected to be operating at 100% occupancy. Ms. Barbara Schmidt,
regular corporate guest telephones the Inn and requests a single room for Wednesday night only.
Questions: How should Ms. Lynn handle this reservation? What factors should be considered when
determining whether to take this reservation?
15mks 3. Peter is a new sales manager for the Harrison Hotel. Peter calls the Shaw Equipment Company
to discuss the company’s annual sales conference, which is coming up in six months. The Shaw group
usually has held this conference at the hotel for many years. The dates Shaw Equipment usually wants are
already taken and the hotel has a contract with the other group, Marvin Manufacturing. However, the hotel
has availability a week later, when there is no business on the books at all at this time.
Questions: Given this situation, what steps should Peter take now? What steps might have helped to
prevent this situation?
