What is a Concierge?
Concierge is a word of French origin that means house guardian, and he was, in past times, and throughout centuries, an important member of a lairds household. Just as it was their duty at the time, today a concierge's duties are to provide the services for a pleasant stay. Hotels have today replaced castles and palaces adn the concierge continues to provide his traditional services. The twenty-first century in which we live, has given concierges their deserved places in private households. More and more, concierges are taking over everyday tasks from our stressed society: purchases, reservations of restaurants, provision of cleaning personnel, and many more chores. In brief, the concierge is your personal assistant.Who is Concierge Experts?Concierge Experts
