Another reason to pay a little extra and book a truly luxury hotel is one word – SERVICE! And not just while you are there. A great hotel will take care of their guests before and after they check in.
Our busy VP of Marketing was jetting off to Thailand and at the last minute decided to hit Shanghai before heading home. The only problem? He was leaving for the airport en route to Bangkok just seconds after his flight to China was purchased – no time to apply for a visa (I told you he is busy!).
He was already booked at the Four Seasons in Bangkok – so he emailed their concierge from the cab on his way to JFK. By the time he arrived at the hotel all of the forms were waiting for him. He simply filled them out and the hotel arranged for his passport pictures to be taken – and he had the visa in his hands the very next day!
Sometimes you really get what you pay for…
