Do You Really Know What A Great Customer Experience Looks Like?

Everyone loves and wants a great customer experience…

I recently booked a networking event for our Shakers & Stirrers group at the Hyatt Place in Old Town Scottsdale. I usually have our monthly mixers in a restaurant however decided to try something new. I had previously spoken to the General Manager, Janet Woolf-Hof about my business and was impressed at how customer service oriented the hotel was when I was there.

When I met with Stephanie Monroe in Sales I was given a tour of the event space, then Janet joined to discuss details of the mixer. Stephanie was accommodating, friendly and professional. These ladies definitely know the importance of customer experience.

Early in my career, I worked at the DTC Hyatt Hotel in Denver. I started as a server and was promoted into management. It was there that the “Hyatt Touch” was instilled in me. This was a multi-week program, specific to Hyatt. Every employee had to learn the importance of exceptional customer service with every guest interaction.  I still remember when the General Manager would visit the restaurant in the early morning to help pour coffee and juice for our guests. He would always talk to employees and guests. Hyatt really cemented the importance of each and every guest who visited the restaurant/hotel. Although this was many years ago, it is clear based on my recent interactions that the Hyatt Place in Scottsdale still offers the “Hyatt Touch” and they still believe in providing a WOW customer experience to their guests. Other businesses and organizations could really learn a lot from Hyatt’s training and how always providing your customers with the best experience, brings them back again and again!
