The guests who come to the hotels come with an understanding that they and their belongings would be safe and secured in the hotel during their occupancy in the hotel. The safety and security aspects play a very vital role in hospitality industry as this industry is dependent largely on the customer relationship with the hotel. If the guest encounters any security issue during their stay in the hotel, it leads to dissatisfaction of the guests resulting in Cognitive dissonance due to which the guests seeks other hotels and their buying consumer behavior becomes variety seeking consumer behavior. On the other hand, if the guests face no security and safety issue during their stay in the hotel, it leads to guest satisfaction resulting in improvement of rapport and good will of the hotel in the society thereby achieving its main objectives of PROFIT MAXIMIZATION AND GUEST SATISFACTION.
