J.D. Power and Associates, the market research firm, measures just about every product and service you can imagine, including the satisfaction levels of hotel guests and travelers.
So you can imagine that we pay especially close attention to the results of J.D. Power hotel guest surveys. It’s one of the guidelines that we measure ourselves against, and we’re happy to report that, by that measure, where performing very well — especially considering that overall hotel industry ratings have fallen to their lowest ranking since 2006.
J.D. Power surveyed more than 60,000 North American hotel guests and arrived at an industry rating of 757 points out of a possible 1,000. That is a 7 point drop from the previous year’s and includes what J.D.

The owners, management and staff of The Rose Hotel believe that we have created a culture that puts our guests first. We’re not perfect, but we are not bashful about saying that we are good at what we do. We work hard to please our guests and we think that our efforts are validated by the high percentage of repeat customers who come back to The Rose Hotel again and again for the luxury and the quality of our service. Beyond the high-quality customer service, we also work hard to become friends with our guests.
We seek a competitive advantage vis-à-vis our rival in two ways — the luxury of our rooms and common areas, and rigorous customer service.

We are always happy to hear from you by phone by calling us at 925-846-8802, or filling out our guest comment cards available at our front desk. Or, you can leave your comments on our page at TripAdvisor.com or other reputable travel websites.
