Customers will expect the same levels of service. They won't care much about your challenge with finding employees or that your customer service skills have been out of practice as they were replaced with COVID-19 regulations and survival skills. "You have got to be kidding me. I paid $350 for a room that no longer includes daily housekeeping services, there is a stain on the...
