4 Tips To Help Make Your Hotel More Accommodating
If you are a hotel owner or manager you already know just how challenging it can be. On the other hand if you are considering opening your own hotel but haven’t yet, you may not understand the difficulties that may lie ahead. A hotel is a huge operation with so many moving parts and thus so much that can go wrong. Fortunately, working in hospitality is very rewarding and there are many things you can do to make running your hotel easier. Here are 4 tips that will help you make your hotel more accommodating to guests.
Do Some Landscaping
Doing some landscaping on the grounds of your hotel can make a huge difference in how guests or potential guests perceive it. There are so many small, simple and inexpensive changes you can make that will go a long way. For example, removing trees that block the window views from certain rooms may make staying at your hotel much more appealing.
Hiring cleaners rather than trying to do all the cleaning yourself or expecting your manager to take care of it will only make you fall behind. Especially if your hotel is fully booked, there can often be large messes that you won’t be able to get cleaned up enough in time for your next guests arrival and this can create a lot of stress.
Hire a good cleaning crew to come in and take care of this aspect of your business so that you can worry less about it and focus on even bigger things.
Add A Bar
Though this is a little more expensive than some of the other ideas on this list, adding a bar to the lobby or another area of your hotel if it doesn’t already have one is an excellent way to entice guests to have a good time, and it will also help to get your guests to spend more, increasing your profits. If you look at it that way, the bar will actually eventually end up paying for itself.
Changing your hotel’s policy to make it more pet-friendly is sure to bring in guests who never would have considered staying with you previously. Some people travel with their pets exclusively and won’t stay anywhere that doesn’t allow their furry friends.
You may worry that allowing pets could deter other pet-free guests from choosing your hotel, but this need not be the case. You can decide to have certain rooms be pet friendly and others not, and have rules which you enforce to make staying at your hotel a wonderful experience for everybody whether they bring a pet with them or not.
Overall, making your hotel more accommodating isn’t actually as hard as it sounds. Hopefully these tips help you out!
