You will prepare and submit a term paper on Effective Rooms Division of a Hotel. Your paper should be a minimum of 3500 words in length. Room division, on the other hand, is the most significant revenue department for hotel organizations (Medlik & Ingram 2000, p. 21). The main purpose of this essay is to investigate the effective management techniques for the room division of a hotel. The paper will start by giving a brief description of the hotel chosen for the case study and assess how good design and use of property interiors can improve hotel management in general. It will also assess why the front office should be properly planned and managed in every hotel and discussion key to successful management of the front office and accommodation services of the case study hotel including customer care, human resources, property management, sales and marketing, and use of technology and finally conclude with what we have learned from the research. The selected hotel from the case study is a 4-star hotel located in London, United Kingdom, known as Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes.
The Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes, London, settles in a traditional Victorian townhouse located in Baker Street close to the Madame Tussauds museum. I personally researched the hotel and gathered information concerning their room division. The lobby showcases a fine reference to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s well-known sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, and forms a warm environment with a fireside, partly exposed timber floorboards, and deep-brown, broad leather armchairs. Their front office area basically welcomes a comfort with warm alcoves, as well as an open fire.
An interior refers to the inside section of any building, regarded as a whole from the viewpoint of artistic design and/or main effect and convenience among other factors (Bardi 2009, p. 31). It can as well be a single room or apartment. Design, on the other hand, is an art mainly bases on patterns, colors and shapes (Boella & Pannett 1999, p 53).
