Night Porter Security
The night porter is responsible for the security of the hotel throughout the night, usually between the hours of 8p.m. and 8a.m. The night porter is responsible for covering the reception area and knows which rooms are occupied and which are not from a copy of the guest list handed over by the receptionist going off duty. Night porters often make regular rounds of the premises and must keep a log of anything suspicious they notice during the shift. The log is handed to the duty manager who comes on duty as the night shift ends.
Night Porter Reception Area
It is the duty of the Night Porter to ensure that the front door area, reception area and general area are clean and safe at all times. All guest needs that normally would be met by reception staff are met by the night porter during the night shift. This might mean answering requests for information or even calling for taxis for guests who plan to go out. The reception area and all other public areas must be kept tidy and clean, ready for the morning shift, and this is also the responsibility of the night porter. Any late-returning guests are met by the night porter, who also handles any late-night check-ins or early morning check-outs.
Night Porter Morning Preparation
If the hotel provides a breakfast, the night porter ensures the breakfast area is tidy and clean and prepared for the breakfast service. If any guests require an early breakfast before the normal breakfast service, the night porter will serve those guests as described by the Duty Manager or Kitchen Manager. If packages or messages arrive at the hotel during the night, the night porter is responsible for delivering them to guest rooms in the morning or informing guests of their arrival.
