40 Hotel Room Status and Description [Complete]

Hotel Room Status -Many people say that working in a hotel is good, isn’t it? Wear a suit, tie, handle important people and the service charge is high.

Indeed, such a mindset is still inherent in the minds of the general public. In fact, when directly involved in the world of hospitality, it is not as beautiful as the image. 

Just like working in other industries, there are many things that we must learn and understand before going into the field.

Starting from the system, work culture, and especially in hotels, the most important thing for us to know at the beginning is the status of the rooms.

This is very important because the status of this room will be related to what actions will be taken against the room.
