Laura Allars's curator insight, May 8, 2015 11:24 PM
Are hotel star ratings relevant and have accommodate to the guests? Summary – This article focuses on the results of the Forbes Travel Guide Star Ratings in 2012. In this guide, there were 97 five-starred hotels worldwide, made by professional inspectors. Link to the theory covered in lecture or tutorial discussions – As a class in the lecture we talked about 5 star ratings in the first week. In this lecture we talked about what would be expected of a hotel to have this rating but also that they had the power to then raise their prices. There is also another rating to rate hotels, which is Economy, Midscale (with and without food and beverage), Upscale, Upper Upscale and Luxury. Link to guest speakers and site inspections – In terms of RACV, we asked what the star rating of the hotel was. Although it was expected to be a five star hotel, it was only had a 4.5 star rating, where it lost half a star due to the TV’s in the hotel rooms. They lost marks on the TV’s as it wasn’t mounted on the wall, which would’ve been preferred by inspectors. Your opinion on the topic being discussed – This is quite a difficult issue in my opinion. Although it is inspectors who would rate a hotel, how do they do it? Do they take in the insight of the guests who stay at such hotels or is it always just a comparison of one hotel to another? Although, if it was just guests who decide the rating, it would always vary as each guest is different, which could make it too difficult for a hotel to please each one. Industry implications – Having a high star rating exudes luxury and allows the hotels to push up their prices as guests would be willing to pay. Hotels strive hard to gain a high star rating and to maintain it too. However, one main implication would be that it is inspectors who choose the rating of the hotel. When they inspect a room and the entire hotel, do they rate the hotel in the concern of the guests? In the instance of RACV, would’ve the guests really have minded that the TV wasn’t mounted on the wall? Would that really ruin their experience? Another implication would be having to change and react to ever changing trends in the hotel industry. Yet again at RACV, if they were to mount the TV’s in the room they would have to throw all of them out and get new ones. This is why they chose to keep the current televisions as they were only a few years old. Is this a short term solution or fad or has does it have long term ramifications – I believe that this would be long term. If the inspectors decide to use their opinion and the guest’s opinions as well, then the star ratings would be more relevant. After all, the hotels are there to please their guests.
