Bluemoon Management was very helpful and approachable. They helped me getting everything that I needed and helped me to implement. They gave me all the needed support in implementing our thoughts and plans. I enjoyed every moment working with the Bluemoon team.

Research

My first task was to identify the customers of Bluemoon Hotel. I started my User Research with my discussion with Hotel Management and staff. I had several rounds of discussions with them. I also met and had several rounds of discussions with different hotel staff. This gave me great visibility of the hotel’s guests, their expectation, their needs and desire, and their asks. I also worked closely with the Digital Marketing team. That greatly helped me get an insight into the guests who were visiting the social media channel of Bluemoon Hotels.

User Profiles

After discussing with all stakeholder, we identified “Business Travellers” as the Primary profile for Bluemoon Hotels. Business Travellers are those professionals who travelled to Bangalore from all across India on Business trips. They stay in Bangalore for 3-4 days on their business trip. They are in the age group of 37 to 50. They are either Sole Proprietors or representatives of companies they work for. They generally travel alone or in groups. This means they could be booking one or more than one room, depending on the size of the travel group.
