Did you ever think how we classify hotels into different categories like 4 star hotels or 5 star or seven star hotels. Marketers may have classified on the services or amenities basis. Well, there is no such classification exists for hotels but this thing has not disappointed marketers from tagging their properties into number of stars or diamonds and advertising them as 4, 5, 6 or 7 star hotels.
I personally feel so that this rating game must have begun when hotel management companies have kept on constructing hotels and started differentiating them on the basis of services provided and amenities. The race must have accelerated when a super luxurious hotel has built on an artificial island and tagged as a 7-star hotel by the Dubai government’s Development and Investment Office.
According to Wikipedia experts, there are only three seven star hotels in the world Town House Galleria in Milan; the Burj and Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi. It is ridiculous when we talk about that travelers are still not being motivated to travel to Dubai, may be due to over-crowding of the city in form of towering buildings or may be due to inflation and economic conditions.
It is great to consider that when a hotel is tagged as 5-star hotel, it means it has achieved fine perfection in many forms. It is all that what one thinks to achieve when he enters into hotel management business. But there can be another thing also like, one reviewer in Norway stayed at the self-designated Six Star Ai Bahia Principe Costa Adeje, Spain, and went on to say the hotel lacked room service… but who cares, the reviewer said, because “you’re asleep during the night anyway.”
Travelers want that a hotel should meet its claims and pay attention to the basic idea of hospitality and exceedingly exceptional customer service. Travelers are not concerned with the number of stars because they demand value of their spent money and consider that hotel management is responsible for it. Therefore, it is recommended that it is not necessary to grab perfection in form of stars, it is important to look at the level of services you are going to provide.
