Create Hotel or Hospitality Business VIP Program

Edited by Hotelier, Rushell, Eng

Hello and thank you for watching VisiHow. In today's tutorial, we will explore how we can create a hotel VIP program. Aside from the members of your hotel brand's loyalty program, you may have other types of guests that you need to recognize in order to keep your level of service high. We'll discuss how to create such a program in this tutorial.

    There could also be guests with a wedding or anniversary, or it could be a honeymoon couple. There may be some other categories of guests as well. We can have more broad categories, so there are fewer options, as well as a description of who fits into them.

    After we've determined who a VIP is, especially if we're using a property management system, such as OPERA or Fidelio, we will need to come up with a code, such as "VIP1", "VIP2", "VIP3" "VIP4", "VIP5" and "VIP6". It doesn't matter what name is given to each of the codes, as long as we can remember, and everyone on our team knows what those codes stand for. If a team member does not know, they should absolutely have access to the information that they need to find out.

    After we've determined who the VIP is and set our VIP codes, we can determine what our VIPs will receive. How are we going to recognize these people?

    It may be with an amenity, so we'll need to determine what kind of amenity these guests will receive. We may give a frequent guest a fruit plate, a cheese plate, or something to recognize that this guest is very valuable.

    We may give them a discounted or a complementary service, such as 15% off of a spa treatment, depending on the ability of our company to provide this.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    We could give them a complementary upgrade, based on availability. If we do not have availability, then we wouldn't be able to provide this. If we do have the availability, our VIPs should be the first people that we think of in order to please give them a complementary upgrade.

  13. 13
    We may also give them a letter. We can give them that letter along with any of the other items listed.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    We can send a letter to the guest's room with an amenity.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    We can send the letter with their service discounts.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    We can also send a letter along with an upgrade. The letter is just to thank them for their continued business and let them know that we appreciate them coming to stay with us often, and being one of our valued guests.
