Clarion Hotel Cork: in a services business the personal touch matters and it is not present at this hotel
I stayed at the Clarion Hotel in Cork for two nights. At the functional level almost everything worked: the check-in was reasonably quick, my request to change room was granted without question/argument, the room was spacious, comfortable, had the right furniture for a business hotel, and everything was clean. Yet, I am unlikely to go back. Why?
