One should think that the manager had read my last review, becuase this time the attendants in the breakfastrrom was hospitable and even gave away smiles. This also happened to most employees in the ciorridors. A greeating make you feel welcome.
The hotel is a 2-3 story structure where some rooms have a balcony towards the Grand Canyon or Lake Powell. It is lovely to sit on the balcony in the warm evening and soak up beautiful Arizona. You are private to the extent that cellphones from neighbors disturb you. To sit here with a bottle of something and cheese, - is blissful and truly enjoyable. The 85F+ helps of course for someone from a city where the temperature just now is below 45F-.
The hotel is not the most beautiful of the 3 Navajo run hotels in the Choice chain, but it is the most well managed. Tuba City has my favorite exterior- and interior wise, but the employees in Tuba City and Window Rock needs to attend an attitude managecourse., or they should be put to work at the many road stalls for Navajo souvenirs. You will not sell an ice cream in 100F+ again and again unless you give the customer a smile from time to time. The employees at Page seems much more at ease and welcoming this year than at our last visit.
There were two small blemishes if I may? The phone in our room #181 was clearly marked room #187 and the fixtures for the shower curtain were not in line with the tiles. Unless you are seriously “under the weather”, - you may easily cope with these shortcomings. I used to work in hotels before my studies in finance. Attention to detail applies everywhere in life. WI-fi ceased to work as the hotel filled up for the evening, both on my laptop and on my droid. After 8 o'clock in the morning people wake up and the bandwidth dies again.
In the evening the hotel decided decided to grill steak for the guests. This is in stark contrast to the grilled steaks at Quality in Tuba City. Those “steaks” looked like- and tasted like hamburgers, - see my review from May 2012!. If you want to feel cheated by the restaurant, - you should choose Quality Tuba City and not Quality Page.
There is even wildlife in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. The “dragon-like” creature tried to impress me with it’s size by moving up and down on its legs, but scuttled into the bush when I showed him my beer-belly.
While the guests to the city of Page are Caucasians in general, the local population generates a large part of the breakfast guests. I have never had my breakfast in the Navajo hotels without the security of Law Enforcement at my side.
All considered, we truly enjoyed our stay again. I can be negative in my reviews, but when I am not, it it is that much better than those “I hang out to dry”. In real estate it is location, location and location that counts. In the hotel business all building blocks need to work together. One employee out of line, and you're out of consideration for the Choice award for 2013! Quality Page may be on its way there? The CEO and TV star in “Undercover Boss” should definitely make a visit for the award 2013.
