According to Alanawas and Brown, the customer’s experience is considered of great importance in the hotel industry. In their journal, they state that a survey took place on 420 customers and it strongly predicted that customer satisfaction is necessary to have brand loyalty. The journal also stated the importance of the natural environment of the location where the hotel is situated(Alnawas & Hemsley-Brown, 2019). The structure of the report is based on the experiences of Charles and Karen. The intervention is based on their feedback and reviews. Starting from ambiance, structure, hospitality, and warmth in the relationship with the staff of the hotels, all points are elaborated keeping the quality check in mind.
