Bullring Hotel Joins Unusual Hotels Of The World

. October 14, 2008

SAN PEDRO, Mexico, July 26, 2005. Hotel Quinta Real Zacatecas encircles the 17th Century San Pedro bullring, the first, (and perhaps one of the less successful!!!), in Mexico. Blending the modern conveniences of an all-suite hotel with the splendour of original, colonial architecture, Quinta Real Zacatecas faces the city's ancient arched viaduct and is an intelligent conversion that provides all the facilities of a major hotel in a prime city location.

You are never far from history as even your bed is recessed under an original stone or wooden arch, and several of the 49 suites overlook the historic main plaza.

The hotel provides the setting for memorable dining. Mexican and international cuisine is available at La Plaza restaurant and El Botarel bar which both overlook the bullring plaza.

The hotel can provide conference, banqueting facilities and meeting rooms for up to 200 people. Cuadrillas salon and Toriles are ideal for meetings while San Pedro is perfect for conferences. Fabulous, atmospheric themed-evenings can be arranged in El Ruedo, the bullring, which is a stunning place to hold cocktail parties.

Human Resources: Confronting a Labor Shortage

With the unemployment rate at its lowest level in decades (3.7%), what has always been a perennial problem for human resource professionals - labor shortage - is now reaching acute levels of concern. It is getting harder to find and recruit qualified applicants. Even finding candidates with the skills to succeed in entry-level positions has become an issue. In addition, employee turnover rates remain extremely high in the hotel industry. As a result of these problems, hotel HR managers are having to rethink their recruitment strategies in order to hire the right talent for the right job. First, hotels have been forced to raise their wages and offer other appealing perks, as a way to attract qualified candidates. Secondly, HR managers are reassessing their interviewing techniques, focusing less on the answers they receive to questions and more on observable behavior. Part of this process includes role-playing during the interview, so that the recruiter can gauge how a candidate works through specific problems and interacts with other team members. Additionally, some HR managers are also creating internal talent pools as a way to address labor shortages. Instead of utilizing department resources to find new hires with specific skills for needed positions, hotels are cultivating talent pools internally and preparing their employees to assume leadership roles whenever the time comes. They are also placing greater emphasis on a company culture that is more performance-based, as a way to curb employee turnover, increase employee satisfaction, and assure higher levels of customer service. Finally, recognizing the importance of employee retention as a way to lessen the impact of a tight labor market, some HR managers are instituting generous reward programs in order to retain their top performers. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these and other issues in their departments.
