What is a Hotel Quality Assurance Audit?
A Hotel Quality Assurance audit is done to identify the issues on the front end of the hotel experience, which is the everyday customer’s experience.
At Cayuga Hospitality, our consultants will participate in a mystery shopper experience. A consultant with hospitality ownership or executive level experience will measure the entire customer experience to include the entire sales process from:
- Check-in process
- Hotel staff interactions
- Quality and cleanliness of the facility
- And post stay engagement
What is a Hotel Operations Analysis?
A Hotel Operations Analysis is similar to a hotel quality audit. But, instead of measuring customer experience; a Hotel Operations Analysis identifies problems on the back-end or operations of the hotel. The Hotel Operations Analysis will deal with employees.
The hotel operations consultant will identify whether the employees are well cared for. They will also identify whether they are supporting the mission of the hotel.
Hotel Operations Analysis and Customer Touch Points
The Hotel Operations Analysis will review customer touch points to identify where the hotel is excelling in its operations. They will identify where there is room to grow as well. The consultant will get down to the root causes and strategize a plan to help you fix them.
What happens after the Hotel Quality Assurance & Hotel Operations Analysis?
The Cayuga Hospitality consultant will develop a report detailing Hotel Quality Assurance findings. They will then submit the consultant’s report and professional Hotel Operations Analysis.
After submitting the final report, your consultant will lead a webinar with the client. In the webinar they will review the findings/recommendations and agree on next steps as appropriate.

Why Do I Need a Hotel Quality Assurance Audit?
A Hotel Quality Assurance audit provides an unbiased review of your hotel. Not only that, it provides you with insights from a professional eye and weeds out the loud voices. By loud voices, we are referring to guests who have an outlier response to your hotel.
Loud Voice Impact on Business
A good example of a loud voice is a 1-star online guest review that may have been triggered by something minor; or the opposite, where a guest leaves a 5-star review that was reliant on something minor. These are loud voices and if not careful, listening to these voices and allowing them to dictate your business decisions can end up hurting you.
