This training module contains six instructional units designed for hotel room service workers. An introductory section outlines functional objectives, gives an overview of the curriculum and offers suggestions for classroom presentation. Instructional units cover these topics: taking orders on the phone; room service basics; giving and asking directions; handling guest requests; confirming and clarifying requests; and taking guest complaints.
