Dubai's premium hotel Burj Al Arab, with its personalised customer service, had redefined luxury in hospitality. The experience provided by Burj was claimed to be so unique that it had given itself a seven star hotel status. The parameters of hotel star status have been shifting with changing customer choices and preferences. According to Bjorn Hanson, global industry leader and partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers hospitality and leisure division, 'Hotels are responding with amenities that are generally better in quality and often offer guests more than they might expect at a particular price level'. Set in 2008, the case profiles the star classification prevalent in the hospitality industry and the customer satisfaction aspect that impacts the same.
