What Does Luxury Mean?

As a hotelier, you know there are many ways to define luxury. From a property’s physical space to its service culture standard, there’s no question that luxury lives in the details.

But can you define a hotel as luxurious without modern, interactive technology? Perhaps luxury hotelier general manager from Dream Hollywood, Vaughn Davis, can offer some insight.

Of Course They’re Checking In!

For Vaughn, defining luxury in the lens of hospitality means creating a seamless and effortless experience for guests. Like a sixth sense, your team must be proactive in anticipating what a guest wants and needs before they request it.

Luxury also removes the question “Checking-in?,” and replaces it with “welcome,” and technology gives your team the tools they need to not only know who the guest is but know what the guest will want.
