When It Comes To Luxury Hotel Services: The Sky Is The Limit - Articles Surfing
There is nothing wrong with enjoying the finer things of life and wallowing in the fruits of your labor. But when it comes to luxury hotel services, things may be getting a bit out of hand. There seems to be no limit to the extravagant, and in some cases even humorous, services being offered by luxury hotels to their well-to-do-guests, who seem to be looking for ever more unique ways to spend their hard earned ( or perhaps easily earned) riches.
Luxury hotels are bending over backwards to comply with the increasing demands of well-to-do travelers for exclusive lodgings and services that cater to their every need. Services such as 24- hour butler services, private tours and pate for the pets of their extravagant guests.
Take for instance the 'Friends with Money' package offered by the Ritz Carlton New York Battery Park. This package helps you to share the good times with 30 of your best friends. You get to shower your 30 guests with one night's lodging in executive suits, customer fireworks displays, city helicopter tours, a delicious five course dinner, and private massages to sooth body and soul.
You, the most generous and honored host, get to overnight in the 2000 square foot Presidential suite. And this night on the town comes with a price tag of $137,580, which may be considered quite reasonable for executives with impressive compensation plans and bonuses or high rollers who know how to ride the highs and avoids the lows in the stock market.
And if you think that is fancy then what about the 'car sitting' services and the 'car turn down' services available at Regent South Beach in Miami? Is that "really" necessary? Apparently so! For $500 these wealthy guests can receive a personal 'car sitter' to watch their Bentley or Ferrari all night. For $200 per night, this luxury hotel offers a car turn down service which includes interior vacuuming, tire pressure check, manual hand wash and wax services, and more.
The competition between Luxury hotels is intense. The competition is not merely to offer luxury, comfort and convenience. Luxury hotels are als competing to offer unique and exclusive activities that their wealthy guests will value and remember long after their checkout dates. Hoteliers, eager for their business, happily comply.
Supply is meeting demand. Basic laws of economics. With what result? Highly personalized, uniquely creative, completely exclusive and extraordinary services and activities. And it looks like this may just be the beginning. When it comes to luxury accommodations one saying comes to mind: 'the sky is the limit'. What in the world will they come up with next?
