  • CHECK IN WITHOUT RESERVATION (WALK-INS) Presented by : Budi Sasongko
    • There will be occasions when guests will want to stay with us but have not made prior reservations. These arrivals are the most profitable to the hotel as in most cases, the guest will be paying a higher rate. These are considered high yield business and should be given very special attention. THESE ARE WINDFALL BUSINESS, SO TRY NOT TO LOOSE THEM WHEN THE OPPORTUNITY ARISES !.
    • Walk-in guests without reservation must be advised of and offered a choice of all available and unreserved rooms at published room rates. All employee, and especially those manning the front desk, should be thoroughly familiar with the features and amenities of the hotel as well as the various types of room accommodation and trained how to merchandize them to the guests.
    POLICY
    • If no unreserved rooms are available, walk-in guest MUST be offered alternate accommodations at another comparable hotel.
    • An offer to make further reservations must be extended as a part of the normal registration and check-out procedures.
    • Receptionist says : “Welcome to the ……………Hotel, may I help you ?”.
    • Once it is determined that guest is a walk-in, get a blank reg-card from tray and in the meantime run search in computer for “OK” status of room.
    PROCEDURE :
    • Check with the guest on the kind of accommodation required explaining the various room types available, the price, etc. Use brochures and tariffs as selling aid. Once the guest has decided on the accommodation required, check with the guest by saying : ……………..’ Sir, would you like to have a King or Twin Bed ? (Hotel or Tower side), etc, explaining the difference, if necessary, if this has not already been decided earlier by the guest and only if you have the choice available.
    • This is your opportunity to up-sell. If asked, recommend the more expensive room first.
    • Request guest to register – say : “Mr/Mrs/Miss…………could you register for us please,…..thank you”.

    • Check the method of payment by…….”Mr ……, will you be settling your account by credit card ?”.
    • If you see that the guest has filled on the payment column as PAYMENT BY CREDIT CARD, you are to at this point go on to the next question, “Mr……….., may I have your credit card for imprint please ?, thank you”.
