Room Status Terminology / Definitions for hotels
During the guest stay, the housekeeping status of the guestroom changes several times. The various terms defined are typical of the room status terminology of the lodging industry. Not every room status will occur for each and every guest during their stay at the hotel.
Changes in this status should be promptly communicated to the front office in order to maximize the room sales and revenue. Maintaining timely housekeeping status requires close coordination and cooperation between the front desk and the house keeping department for the Non- Automated / Semi – Automated hotels.
