Holiday Inn Front Desk Representative

Holiday Inn - Columbus, OH3.7


What’s the job? The moment a guest steps into one of our hotels, they walk into a genuinely memorable experience. As a Front Desk Agent, you’ll not only be the person they rely on to handle transactions, offer local insights and anticipate every detail of a friction-free experience. You’ll also create the warm atmosphere that makes our guests feel at home in any location.

Your day-to-day

· Be the warm welcome that kicks off a memorable guest experience

· Acknowledge Rewards Club members and returning guests, in person or on the phone

· Take and manage guest bookings, up-selling opportunities and telling them about ways to improve their stay

· Handle cash and credit transactions

· Start every stay right by swiftly checking guests in and out – take IDs, hand out room keys, and control and release safety deposit boxes

· Stay one step ahead of guests’ needs – record and act on their preferences, and handle their messages, requests, questions and concerns

· Be a trusted contact for all guests. Help them with anything from bill issues to local knowledge, and loop in management when necessary

· Stay safe all the time. Following our safety procedures, you’ll report all incidents and wear any protective gear needed

· Take pride in your appearance and place as a brand ambassador

· Always know what events and activities are on the day’s schedule

· Jump into other ad-hoc duties when your colleagues need your help

What we need from you

· Communication skills - guests will need to come to you with concerns as well as compliments, so you’ll be easy to talk to

· Your problem-solving skills will turn issues into opportunities so every guest leaves with great memories

· Fluency in the local language - extra language skills would be great, but not essential

· Literate and tech-savvy - you’ll need a good grasp of reading, writing, basic maths and computers

· Flexibility - night, weekend and holiday shifts are all part of the job

· You’ll have a high school diploma or qualification. A college or university degree would be a bonus, but not essential

· Experience - ideally, you’ll have spent at least one year in a front desk or guest service position

· Strength - sometimes you’ll need to lift, push and pull big objects up to 50lbs (23 kg). This can involve bending and kneeling
