Leading hospitality management company, Davidson Hotels & Resorts, has been awarded the management contract for the 302-room Hilton Denver Inverness. The full-service hotel and conference center near the Denver Tech Center is the management company's second property in the Denver area.

Its extensive collection of world-class business and leisure amenities include a full-service spa, an 18-hole J. Press Maxwell-designed golf course, a coffee shop, four multi-cuisine restaurants, and more than 60,000 square feet of the region's most technologically advanced function space. Scheduled for completion this spring is the much-anticipated addition of a brew pub and outdoor beer garden, operated in association with a premier Colorado brewery.

"Davidson's guest-centric approach, exceptional experience and consistent success in hospitality services made them the clear choice to manage this asset," said Silverwest President & Chief Operating Officer Charlie Peck. "We are confident Davidson will help maximize the potential of Hilton Denver Inverness and further elevate the profile of this unique property."

Guest Service: A Culture of YES

In a recent global consumers report, 97% of the participants said that customer service is a major factor in their loyalty to a brand, and 76% said they view customer service as the true test of how much a company values them. And since there is no industry more reliant on customer satisfaction than the hotel industry, managers must be unrelenting in their determination to hire, train and empower the very best people, and to create a culture of exceptional customer service within their organization. Of course, this begins with hiring the right people. There are people who are naturally service-oriented; people who are warm, empathetic, enthusiastic, pleasant, thoughtful and optimistic; people who take pride in their ability to solve problems for the hotel guests they are serving. Then, those same employees must be empowered to solve problems using their own judgment, without having to track down a manager to do it. This is how seamless problem solving and conflict resolution are achieved in guest service. This willingness to empower employees is part of creating a Culture of Yes within an organization.  The goal is to create an environment in which everyone is striving to say “Yes”, rather than figuring out ways to say, “No”. It is essential that this attitude be instilled in all frontline, customer-facing, employees. Finally, in order to ensure that the hotel can generate a consistent level of performance across a wide variety of situations, management must also put in place well-defined systems and standards, and then educate their employees about them. Every employee must be aware of and responsible for every standard that applies in their department. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
