Karine Nazaryan – Hospitality Professional

Also, probably the most important matter is that you – literally – take care of people. This is debatable, but my experience tells me it takes empathy and commitment to put another person’s needs and desires ahead of your own – while keeping a smile on your face.
Customers come to hotels for various reasons, but in short, they want an experience. They want hotel employees and representatives to accord their time, care and attention. And just as people differ greatly, so does the care and commitment each hotelier exhibits to his/her clients. Some may settle for meeting the basics, such as checking-in a family or serving beverages at the hotel’s bar, but others will take an extra step and not just meet their client’s demands, but also exceed them.

Сальваторе Касаррубия – генеральный директор отеля Opera Suite, Ереван

Ереван очень красивый и гостеприимный город, и я очень доволен открытием новых отелей, но в то же время я обеспокоен тем, что новые отели занимаются демпингом, но не все, конечно. Демпинг очень опасен и может нанести ущерб рынку, а восстановление потребует длительного времени, и будет очень сложно. Меня не пугает открытие новых 5-звездочных отелей, я рад этому. Обычно они должны стоить дороже моего 4-звездочного отеля (улыбается).

Hotelier Magazine – Bakur Grigoryan

One might think that good Director of F&B needs to be “big picture person only”. That’s true, to a certain extent. When you’re at the top, it’s important to think of larger goals and not get bogged down in the weeds…
