Our top priority is to hear and understand what travelers are looking for while staying with us.

Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) March 14, 2013

Guest request communication cards, a service providing frequently forgotten items and healthy, balanced menu offerings are a sampling of the new features available at Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa as a result of its effort to listen more to guests’ needs and to provide an experience tailored to their individual preferences.

Each of the new guest enhancements offered at Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach are based on insights from female travelers collected as a part of the most extensive guest listening exercise in Hyatt’s history. The launch of these new amenities and services marks the first milestone in Hyatt’s evolution of hospitality, which includes changing the conversation with hotel guests, unleashing a spirit of innovation and perfecting new concepts through rigorous research and in-hotel testing.

Listening to Female Travelers
Hyatt began its efforts to evolve the guest experience with an intensive 18-month effort that included more than 40 facilitated group discussions around the world. Because women are such a critical segment of travelers, Hyatt focused its efforts on creating solutions to the issues that many women face while traveling. While each feature was driven by insights from women travelers, Hyatt believes all guests can appreciate these new enhancements.

“These new enhancements and recent efforts to better listen to our valuable guest feedback in a more meaningful way are the first steps to evolving the overall guest experience,” said General Manager Brian Kramer. “Our top priority is to hear and understand what travelers are looking for while staying with us. Any chance to help improve their experience helps keep smiles on guests’ faces and supports our hotel’s mission, ‘Little Hotel, Big Heart.’”

The research conducted by Hyatt showed that women want:

  •     Assurances that their guest rooms have been cleaned and an ongoing dialogue with the hotel to provide feedback. All guests will now find communications cards that allow housekeepers to provide personal confirmation of a thoroughly cleaned room and to open the door to two-way communication, encouraging guests to share additional needs during their stay.
  •     To maintain momentum on the road and that they often do not want to ask for things. All business travelers forget things. Women, however, are often much more reluctant than men to seek assistance when they do, which can make something simple such as leaving a cell phone charger at home much more disruptive for female travelers. Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach is introducing Hyatt Has It, a service for all guests that will offer essentials such as a phone charger, curling iron, steamer, yoga mat, makeup remover wipes and razor to keep, borrow or buy.
  •     To maintain their health and well-being on the road. All guests at the Clearwater Beach resort will find new dining offerings that include fresh juices and smoothies, balanced portions and create-your-own options, all of which are grounded in Hyatt’s industry-leading food and beverage philosophy, Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served.
  •     Bath products that are of high quality. In response, Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach will now be offering KENETMD Skin Care at the Sandava Spa to ensure that guests can maintain their well-being on the road.
