  • Process cancellations, revisions and information updates on changes; process guest reservation requests for other hotels within the reservations system.
  • Stay abreast of current rates, rate changes and all promotions; assist in rooms forecasting. Complete daily logs according to established procedures.
  • Promote team work and quality service through daily communications and coordination with other departments. Notify sales of any group bookings.
  • May assist with other duties as assigned such running daily reports, e.g. the cancellation, booking, or arrival reports.

What We need from you:

  • Experience in reservations beneficial but not essential
  • Hands-on approach with a can-do work style
