Avenida Suites, a company providing short term housing orlando in Orlando FL, is posting this article in order to educate you about the nature of paying for lodging in hotels versus corporate housing firms.
So you’re travelling to Orlando FL. You stayed in one of the many hotels in the area, and you were reasonably satisfied with your stay. Your trip is coming to an end. You have your bags all packed, your boarding pass printed out, a taxi called in advance, and you head downstairs from your room to the lobby so that you can check out and settle the bill.
You take the elevator down into the lobby, and you walk to the front desk to settle the payments. You look outside and your taxi is there, waiting for you right on time. You are making great time, and you are feeling ready to be done with your trip and head home to see your family. But then you look towards the front desk and notice that there is a long line waiting to talk to the hotel clerk. There is only one clerk working at the front desk, and the short staffing is manifesting itself in the form of a daunting queue. You ask the people in front of you if you can please step ahead of them in the line because you have a flight to catch. Sorry, they tell you, but they have been waiting for a while, and they also have a flight to catch. Nervously checking your watch, you step to the end of the line and pray for the single file grouping of people to move quickly.
After what feels like two hours of waiting (maybe twenty minutes) you finally reach the front of the line. With an ingratiating smile, the clerk asks you how he can help you. You tell him that you would like to check out. He asks your room number, and begins typing away on his computer screen. You feel that all too familiar suspicion that he is doing way too much typing –if this check out was going to be easy and smooth, he wouldn’t still be typing. He informs you, after a few minutes, that they are undergoing some technical difficulties. After waiting a few more minutes (and the line behind you is growing in size and impatience) he finally prints your bill.
Perusing the bill, you are taken for a surprise. Seventy-five dollars in mini bar charges! All you had was a bag of chips and a soda! And then you see that the rate listed is not what you had anticipated. You begin to argue with the clerk about the surprisingly large bill, but clearly she is powerless to help you. The manager comes out to discuss the issue with you, and by now you are so worried that you are going to be late for your return flight that you agree to just pay the extra rate. Running outside with your luggage (which you now have to carry for yourself since the hotel crew no longer has financial incentive to help you), you see that the taxi for the airport has left.
This situation is all too familiar for the avid hotel traveler. It is precisely this situation Avenida Suites formed in order to avoid. By promising you start-to-finish direct financial communication and attentive customer service, they will make sure that your departure (and entire trip) from Orlando FL is as smooth as it can possibly be!
