Analysis of the Staybridge Suites Service Score Decline




Problem Statement for Staybridge Suites

The hotel has seen a decline of the service scores both in the rolling 12 month average and the rolling 3 month average. The decline has dropped the hotel from being ranked the 1 Staybridge in the guest service scores to 11 according to ranking of the 12 month rolling averages. The 12 month rolling average is the score that determines whether the hotel will win an award at the 2014 IHG Conference. Also, quality service is an important factor in driving revenue.

The problem we are facing is determining the reason for the decline in customer satisfaction.Slide3









“When you have a serious problem, it's important to explore all of the things that could cause it, before you start to think about a solution” (

Pavey, n.d., para. 1).

More people per room; i.e. families, group reservations

Only one part-time maintenance person


More people


rooms; i.e. families, group reservations

Quicker Turnover of Rooms

Not making personal connections

Longer Wait Times for Reservations/Check-in/Checkouts

Need additional training on service recovery





Cause and Effect Analysis

In the third quarter of 2013 the hotel lost a piece of extended stay corporate business. The loss of this account has caused the hotel’s stream of revenue to change from extended stay to being driven from short-term corporate, leisure and group business. In 2014 we have seen a drop in the overall satisfaction scores of the hotel. The effects of the revenue stream could be causing the decline in services scores. There are three areas on the survey that could be effected and they are: Cleanliness, Condition and Friendliness. The chart on the next slide shows a good side by side comparison of the averages for these categories and the overall satisfaction over the first four months of both 2013 and 2104. It is from these charts that I can identify the main driving factor in the decline of service scores as being friendliness of the employees. This score is effecting the ratings of the overall satisfaction scores.Slide5
