The “No Problem” Problem

Roger Wolkoff | June 5, 2019

By Roger Wolkoff I walk into the hotel, wheeling my luggage and briefcase behind me. I am taken aback by the spacious and open modern lobby. I approach the front desk, and Carlos greets me with a smile. We have a friendly exchange - how are you doing, did you have a good flight, how do you like our city - that kind of thing. I ask for a restaurant recommendation for dinner, and he tells me about a fascinating off-the-beaten-path bistro that has excellent reviews. I thank him, and he says, "No problem." And there it is. Hanging like a lead balloon. No problem. What's the problem with "no problem?" It's an inhe...

Nowadays if you find yourself in nearly a major city center anywhere in the world, you're never more than a few blocks away from your next americano.

There have been several books written about the brand and their business approach. True, there are issues and growing pains, as there are for any corporation of this size and stature.

Tackle Guest Experience Like a Pro, This Super Bowl

Divya Bhat | January 22, 2019

By Divya Bhat With Aerosmith, Ludacris, Cardi B, Maroon 5 and the likes setting the scene, the city of Atlanta is all set to host the Super Bowl 2019. This is the third time that Atlanta will be hosting the mega sporting event, after 1994 and 2000. This obviously comes as great news (with its own set of challenges) to all hoteliers in and around the city. In fact, most accommodation options almost always sell out months in advance when it comes to Super Bowls! But is that all there is for hoteliers to cash in on? We think not. Assuming that you've hit jackpot just because you are sold out for the Super Bowl season is a big mistake. Gett...
