Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. Today's tutorial will discuss the importance of a housekeeping room inspection in a hotel. The room inspection is an important part of the housekeeping process for many reasons.
- 1There are a set of standards that housekeeping will need to follow for cleaning, refreshing, and stocking rooms. It's important to maintain these because it will help keep guest satisfaction high. If our guest satisfaction drops, we may also experience a drop in hotel occupancy. We want to make sure that our guests are kept happy, and one way we can do that is to maintain our standards of good service.The main purpose of the room inspection is to maintain housekeeping standards.Advertisement

All of these things need to be checked to make sure there are no issues in the room. We need to make sure that our guest rooms' facilities are kept in proper working condition.Guest room inspections help us keep good working order of facilities.

This includes every bar of soap or bottle of shower gel, body lotion, shampoo, and all other amenities, such as robes and slippers.

You will want to tailor your answer to housekeeping such as:
- I would help provide hospitality by making sure every guest felt that they were right at home. Keeping the hotel rooms above average cleanliness standards.
- A smile can make people feel relaxed so I would make it a point to smile at every guest I pass as I go about my tasks on the floor.
