How to Respond to Hotel Reviews: The Positive Review

It’s clear that hoteliers should respond to hotel reviews, especially negative reviews and mixed reviews. But when we recommend that hoteliers respond to as many reviews as possible, that does include some positive reviews. Why? There are several benefits to responding to positive hotel reviews.

 

1. Encourage loyalty.

You can encourage loyalty with guests by reaching out to those who take the time to write you a positive review. They’ve already had a great experience with your property. This extra personal touch will make them more likely to choose your hotel again and again.

2. Turn brand enthusiasts into promoters.

Guests who write positive reviews are also likely to be brand enthusiasts. Not only does your response encourage loyalty, it also makes them more likely to tell their friends (in person, or on social media) about the great experience they had at your hotel.

3. Leave a positive impression on

Parks and Recreation Reunion Recap: Greetings From 2015

Parks and Recreation has only been off the air for five years, but what a five years it has been. When the NBC sitcom about a tireless, obsessive, irrepressibly kind public servant—Amy Poehler‘s Leslie Knope—and her beloved colleagues aired its finale, on February 24, 2015, America had a very different collective self-image. A global network of Ebola fighters had just won a tough, worrisome but nonetheless decisive battle against that deadly virus. After a devastating summer of police violence, the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement at least seemed poised to effect positive change. As pop culture was making unprecedented strides in trans representation, an unstoppable queer rights movement was about to make same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states. Our first black President still had two years left in his second term, and Donald Trump was four months away from officially kicking off his campaign. The idea that

When will Europe fully reopen for tourism? Not anytime soon.

The most optimistic countries — Greece and Portugal among them — hope there’s a chance they might be able to pitch themselves as safe options by the second half of summer. Others, including Italy, are looking to regional travel to partially salvage their tourism industries and economies, while they sort out when to reopen borders and whom to let in.

“It is too soon to say whether we can take holidays,” President Emmanuel Macron told French citizens Tuesday. “What I can say is that we will limit major international travel, even during the summer. We will stay among Europeans and depending on how the epidemic evolves, we might have to reduce that a little more.”

And in Sicily, though money has been set aside to relaunch tourism, it isn’t yet clear when the promotion will become possible.

Travel has been tightly restricted in Europe since March, when the continent’s vaunted

Vacation on hold? House bill would allow feds to carry over unused annual leave

Some federal employees likely aren’t taking vacation right now, either because they’re under state stay-at-home orders or there’s simply too much work to do — or some combination of both.

A few House Democrats are eyeing new legislation that would ensure federal employees can hold onto the annual leave they’d otherwise have to forfeit at the end of the year.

Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-Va.) introduced the Federal Frontline Worker Leave Protection Act, which would specifically allow employees to carry over unused annual leave due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Under existing policy, most federal employees can carry up to 30 days of leave to the next year. Any accrued leave that’s left is usually gone.


But current statute does allow agencies to restore forfeited annual leave to federal employees, but only in specific circumstances. Agencies could, according to regulations from the Office of Personnel Management, restore lost annual leave when there’s

Is it possible to plan a “safe” vacation?

“My biggest loss would be the condo if we cancel,” he says. “I would lose half of my payment.”

Smiler is not alone. As Americans cautiously look to their next vacation, they’re concerned about health — not just physical health but also financial health. They want something safe. Here’s how travel industry sectors look when it comes to safety:

Airlines: Air carriers are taking a variety of steps to protect passengers’ health, such as blocking middle seats to and testing for covid-19. American Airlines and Delta Air Lines are among the major airlines blocking middle seats. Frontier Airlines announced last week that it will guarantee an empty middle seat next to you for $39.

Emirates was one of the first airlines to conduct blood tests on passengers. Other carriers have announced plans to clean the cabins more thoroughly. Qatar Airways, for example, said it would install advanced air-filtration systems,

7 Personal Benefits of Travel: Why Travel?

Forget milling around in your finest evening wear, Singapore Sling in hand: You’ll be lucky to get peanuts. Flying isn’t quite the party it was in Sinatra’s days, and lots of time, energy, and money are expended to leave home, so why travel? How long do the personal benefits of travel last?

Getting away from home and stepping outside of your usual routine is beneficial for both mind and body. The long-lasting personal benefits of visiting a foreign country far outweigh the costs and time to get there.

The great travel writer Pico Lyer said: “Travel is not really about leaving our homes, but leaving our habits.” Here are seven ways that travel, especially international travel, will enhance your life.

New Home Frisco Texas

After months of planning and careful consideration, our big move back to the US has arrived. We bought a house in Frisco, Texas. A lot of people asked why Frisco? We’ve traveled around the world and lived in many different places. We made Montreal our home out of necessity, not desire, and we wanted to consciously choose the best place for us as a family. Frisco is constantly rated one of the best places in the US to live
