They should also pose mission and vision at the front office. Recommendation I wish to recommend that hotel kimikarlai should have additional staffs that are knowledgeable enough in terms of their work because of growing demands they have. Hotel kimikarlai is now reaching the peak of success. In order to overcome this security of things they should see to it that these recommendations must put into action.
