Standard Door Service and Greetings Procedure For Hotel Doorman


Purpose of this SOP:
The Doorman should be familiar and trained with the process of greeting and handling guests. The primary objective is to give a positive impression of the hotel as well as to acknowledge the importance of the guests in the hotel to raise the self-esteem of guests by addressing them by their name. This will let the guest feel home away from home service at the hotel.

Door Service and Greetings Standard Procedure:

Greet the guest with a big smile and pleasantries.

“Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Mr/Ms/Madam… Welcome to [Mention Hotel Name] hotel.

Make sure you are aware of all the available services and outlets in the hotel and location.

Be informative and attentive at all times.

Offer assistance if you see that the guest looks lost as they walks into the hotel.

“May I help you Sir/Madam?”

Be conscious of how you stand at the entrance and always ensure you have a good posture.

Greet the guest farewell as the guest walks out of the entrance.

“Hope to see you again”

“Have a nice day”

“Have a pleasant evening”

Ensure that the glass doors are properly cleaned and polished all the time.

The glass doors and windows should not have fingerprints on any of the glass doors at all times.
