  1. Read the case situation given below and answer the questions that follow.

A corporate client arrives at the Hotel Ritz Carlton for check in without any prior notice. She has a VIP status as she is a regular guest of that hotel. She is told that the hotel is fully booked and her regular business suit is not available. The customer service lady explains the situation to the guest and at the same time also realizes that they can’t lose her business. For her convenience, the customer service lady offers a regular room with the promise of shifting her to her regular suite the next morning. Considering the service quality the corporate client agrees to check in.


When she arrives in the room she finds the room very clean with a nice view but when she enters the washroom, she finds it very dirty, with a malfunctioning faucet. Also, a pungent smell enveloped the atmosphere making it a very unpleasant experience. She immediately calls the customer service lady and complains asking her to make for an immediate check out.


The corporate client defends her decision by stating that she is a regular and important client of the hotel, and expects the same suite always even during her unplanned travels. She further sustained her disappointment by stating that she was very cooperative by accepting a regular room yet the hotel failed to estimate her standard. She makes a final statement by saying that she is taking her business elsewhere, never to return.

  1. What would be your action plan to restore customer delight?
  2. What are the important modes of communications, you will use to make that customer feel important?
  3. Is there any permanent solution to such situations that you would want to recommend?
