A vacant room is one, which has not been sold the previous night. If a room remains vacant for a long period, so much so for a week at a stretch, it should be attended like a departure room. The room attendants should prioritize the room to be attended based on their immediate needs based on this fact, a room which is vacant is attended first.
This is so in order to ensure that a room is found ready to let at any given point of time free of any last minutes’ defects and maintenance requirement. While attending a vacant room, a room attendant should perform the following task.
