In the hotel business what a client looks forward to is probably a safe and a comfortable place where he can have a good night’s sleep and perhaps some memorable experiences to take back home. It certainly is a delight if you get something much more than expected. In the recent situation in Bangkok where political unrest overwhelmed Bangkok’s streets for almost a month, life almost came to a standstill. However papers report that over 5 different properties of Marriott International were closed down and guests had to be shifted to safer spaces across other hotels. What truly remained was the responsibility on the employees of hotels across the place to protect their properties from potential damage by the protestors.
In his blog, Bill Marriott Chairman and CEO of Marriott International writes “Heroism and dedication to duty takes many forms and none of us know when and how we’ll be called to face the challenge. Heroism is not always recognized, but I’m very proud and want to salute the men and women of these hotels, led by their respective General Managers. Everyone did what they had to do to protect their hotels. I am very proud of all of them.” This is an occurrence of enormous dedication for duty by all the people in Bangkok allied to Marriott in some or the other way. Cheap hotels is proud to be associated with professionals of this caliber and a hotel group which has such high values. Great to go Marriott International!
