English term or phrase: hotelaria (ver abaixo)
Bom dia.

O assunto é hotelaria.

O que podem ser "special concierge floors" num hotel?
Existe um equivalente em português para "bellstation", ou a base dos mensageiros de um hotel?
O que é a "shoulder season" de um determinado estabelecimento?

Muito obrigado,
Élcio

Portuguese translation:AS EPOCAS EM MEDIO DAS ALTAS E BAIXAS
Explanation:
1.
SHOULDER SEASON = AS EPOCAS EM MEDIO DAS ALTAS E BAIXAS
EXTRACT
Essentially, for China; High season - may sept oct; Low season - nov dec jan feb mar; Shoulder season - mar/apr & june july aug; in other words, the periods that are neither high nor low, but in between)
May, September, and October are the peak tourist months at China's most popular destinations, when the weather is most comfortable. Prices drop a bit in the ***shoulder season***, which runs from late March through April and from June through August. The off-season arrives in late November, and continues through the winter when crowds are few and prices unbelievably low.

CONCIERGE FLOORS = I think you'll have to decide yourself how to translate this. They are a number of floors of a hotel for 'executives' with private access, and lots of extras such as facilities for computers, faxes etc. A possibility could be 'executive-class private floors'

EXTRACTS x 2
Corporate travelers find our Concierge Floors very accommodating. Specially designed for business, these seven floors at the very top allow you exclusive access to our business center, Thermasol bathtubs, and the convenience of express check-in and check-out service. Frequent business travelers are also eligible for special rates through our Torch Ginger corporate program.

Concierge floors, those exclusive hotel levels that offer rooms with multiple data ports and free continental breakfasts, seem like a pretty good deal. For just a few extra dollars you can escape the conventioneers by having your own private floor, while enjoying amenities like an in-room fax machine, morning newspaper delivery and upgraded soaps and lotions in the shower. .
According to a survey of 3,000 properties by PKF Consulting in Atlanta, hotels charge a 60.3 percent premium for the privilege of staying on executive floors. Even though the average cost of providing the extra services, not including labor, amounts to only $8.23 for each room, you'll shell out an additional $56.81 per night over and above $94.11, the average rate for regular rooms in the hotels that feature special business floors.

BELLSATION I don't know if there is a particular word in Portuguese, but consider it as the 'guest service department/room'.

Desculpe-me o atraso de quase um mês, mas eu havia me esquecido completamente dessa pergunta em particular.

De qualquer forma, um muito obrigado atrasado a todos e, em especial, para Ailish, sempre muito rigorosa e generosa em todas as suas respostas e esforços para ajudar os colegas.

Mais uma vez, desculpe e muito obrigado.
