The role of a houseman at a hotel, conference center, or banquet hall is to maintain the order and cleanliness of the facility or an assigned section thereof. Job responsibilities often include responding to the needs of guests or clients, such as arranging for laundry services, room service, or newspaper delivery. A houseman typically works closely with housekeeping staff, and may be responsible for maintaining the supply of stock items used by housekeeping or other maintenance staff. The houseman might also be responsible for identifying and reporting maintenance issues and perhaps coordinating appropriate responses.
