By understanding the standards every employee should be able to deliver the highest level of service and with it satisfy the customer.

The customer’s satisfaction - achieved by delivering the highest level of service. “No one in the world knows more about what our customers what than we do.” By the long time of Ritz-Carlton experience they know the wishes of their customers and they make them happened in a way that they are satisfied. And the customer would come back to hotel soon and ask again for service.
