Concierge Not Just for Guests

One of the great thing about staying in a great hotel is having access to a concierge. A good concierge can make a trip easier, more productive and more enjoyable. A great concierge can make a trip almost magical. Unfortunately, you can’t bring them home with you. Until now.

The http://www.conciergesconnection.com/index.html Concierges Connection is a group of concierge business owners who have joined together to provide outstanding personal concierge service to clients at a much lower cost than membership fees for traditional concierge call centers or the room rates for hotels offering concierge services. Ida Stanley, Concierges Connection Founder and owner of North Coast Concierge, is also working to develop key strategic partnerships with national vendors who will provide huge discounts on travel, entertainment, leisure, moving and relocation services. Current offerings include concierge, errands, lifestyle management and personal assistance, among others.

“I started the connection to offer real concierge service. Clients of these ‘call center concierge service providers’ do not realize that there is a concierge/errand service provider in their own back yard who can supply the service they need, face-to-face, right where they live and work – right where they spend most of their time, without spending a fortune in membership fees!” Stanley explains in a prepared statement. “The concierges Connection eliminates the huge membership fees that cover expenses such as huge overhead and infrastructure. If you need tickets to an event or you’re going to an unfamiliar city, look in the directory, or pick up the phone and call the concierges Connection, guaranteed it won’t cost a membership fee. To me, the meaning of concierge service means, personal one-on-one service with a person, not a toll free number and a call center agent three states away or who knows maybe India!”

The companies that make up the Connection to date will basically help meet any need that is out there, locally, nationally or even internationally with their connections.
