What is the bell service department function in hotel?
--The bell service staff is of critical importance to a hotel, as they are the first and the last people on the hotel's staff that a customer interacts with.

They also store guests' luggage after they have checked out if they are not leaving immediately as well as arrange for local transportation when requested. Depending on the size of the hotel or resort, additional duties may be assigned as needed.

They are a part of the front desk or front office team along with the concierge, receptionist, front desk clerks, customer service representatives and others.
