What exactly does a hotel mystery
When you arrive at the hotel, you are to

anyone on staff know that youre on
assignment as a secret shopper.

> Were the employees at the front desk
courteous and professional?
> How long did your check-in take?
During your stay at the hotel, you will
be asked to notice things like:
> The cleanliness, quality and
condition of your room.
> Was the housekeeping service
satisfactory? (enough clean
towels, soap, tissues, etc.)
> Were the hallways on your floor
> Did room service handle your order
> Was the food in the hotel restaurant
prepared and served properly?
> Did your check-out go smoothly?

just fill out your Shoppers Report
summarizing your experience and give an
opinion of your stay and you're paid for
your feedback. Thats it. You'll be
paid to be a guest in the hotel and your
stay will be free.
