How Hotels Can Reinvent Themselves Post-Pandemic

Food
Hire a new chef for your hotel restaurant! As businesses closed across the world for the pandemic, many restaurants that were home to amazing chefs will not be re-opening. Creating a safe and reliable environment for a talented chef to enter into your hotel’s picture could be the exact draw that you need to keep guests coming back, and generate new customers who do not necessarily need to stay at the hotel to dine in.

Art
Does your hotel have an art gallery or some vacant walls? Featuring a collection of local artwork not only gives a personal touch to your space, but also gives local artists the opportunity to sell their work after losing gallery space during the pandemic. It also creates a nice conversation piece amongst guests.

Storytelling
Does your hotel have a story? A family history, or something that you are proud of? Showcase your story by adding it to your website and e-blasts to customers. Creating a connection before guests step inside is more likely to pique their interest in why you do what you do. Let your uniqueness shine with signage in each room telling your “why” to guests.

3 Ways to Show Guests Your Hotel is Re-Opening Safely

  1. Use social media to showcase your safety protocols. Take guests on a recorded virtual tour that documents the changes you have made inside of the hotel. This gives them the opportunity to see enhancements that they may not otherwise be able to see at a glance. It also gives you the opportunity to talk about any upcoming promotions, loyalty programs, or events.
  2. Build a CDC page for your website that includes information that is up to date, as well as resources for your customers to access. This will ensure that customers that your always have streamlined access to best practices.
  3. Show hotel traffic data in a visible place. Showing statistics like high traffic times in the lobby or gym can help guests to navigate their way around without worrying about what happens when they walk outside of their room. Transparency provides peace of mind.

4 Best Practices for Your Hospitality Staff During Covid-19

4 Best Practices for Your Hospitality Staff During Covid-19

  1. Wear a cloth mask and Face Shield even when socially distant from guests. The more methods of prevention one uses, the better.
  2. Consistently clean and disinfect surfaces that guests may touch frequently, such as check-in counters, door handles, elevator buttons, and railings.
  3. Keep hand sanitizer, wipes, and disinfectant hand soap with clean water and hand towels on site at any location where guests may transition from one environment to another (outdoors to indoors, lobby to room, pool to bar). Label sanitary stations with clear instructions.
  4. Create antimicrobial reusable signage and place it in areas that are visual reference points in the facility that remind guests to wear a mask, stay socially distant, wash their hands, and respect other guests.

Does your hotel need signage to raise awareness for welcoming guests back? Is your staff equipped with Face Shields? Visit our Covid-19 CDC recommendation approved options today and speak with our industry experts:

Covid-19 Sparks Contactless Entry in 2021

Covid-19 took over the globe this year, making new sanitation practices top of mind for many Hospitality companies. As CDC regulations change and locations pivot to adjust to new rules continuously, the rise of contactless entry is more relevant than ever.

Moving to RFID wristbands as a hotel or resort that is reopening can ensure that your guests physically touch less items, enter facilities with ease, and are easily trackable. Given the new norm of contact tracing , RFID wearables and contactless cards can help to combat transference of Covid-19, as well as track where contact takes place within your building.

If protecting the safety of your guests and your facility is your priority moving forward in 2021, reach out to our team of experts today to learn more about contactless entry, and how We Stay With You.

Why Your Boutique Hotel Card Design Needs To Wow Guests

What do you remember from your last trip? Was it the weather? The food? The service?

Did you keep anything from it? When we recall our travels we fondly look back at the great experiences and inevitably cringe at the bad. What we tend to remember the most clearly is something that created a positive feeling within us, capturing our attention. Boutique hotels are quickly becoming destination spots for many who seek a chance to experience their exclusive and thoughtfully curated offerings.

Our awareness is heightened when we travel. We’re constantly adjusting to our new environment and taking inventory of each image, trying to quantify it in our minds. This heightened state of awareness is the perfect space to ensure that your hotel key card design lands front and center with guests.

Boutique hotels create a feeling of inclusion with enhanced care that make guests want a memento- a keepsake to tie them back to their special experience. If your key card design serves as a sweet reminder of the hotel’s essence, guests are bound to keep them. Your key card on their mantle could be the exact reminder that a former guests needs to book with you again next time.

Are you ready to create a memorable experience? Contact Us for the perfect luxury custom card design that’s sure to keep you top of mind with your guests.

3 Ideas to Boost Room Sales in 2020

 

  1. Factor in the Experience Generation

Today’s generation is becoming more and more about experiences and less about material items. Providing curated information to guests upon check-in keeps them from having to Google every little thing, and it adds a personal touch. High touch, high tech is the name of today’s guest game. Including options like transportation, real reviews from guests about their experiences, or a guide to take them out for a truly local adventure can give guests that something extra.

  1. Make Access Seamless

As important as the details are, sometimes we spend too much time fine tuning and not enough time thinking about the big picture. Ensuring your lock systems work with your key cards, your brand is represented correctly on your card artwork, and that your guests have easy entry to your facility is critical to your overall reputation. Don’t miss out on easy opportunities to provide a positive experience to your guests. Contact Us today to learn more about how we can help you streamline your hotel access cards.

  1. Embrace Wellness

The wellness kick isn’t just a blip on the hospitality radar anymore, it’s a movement. Offering services for the mind, body and spirit has become commonplace. Can’t open a spa or gym up tomorrow? Consider small touches like an organic face mask in each bathroom for guests, or a yoga class on the rooftop patio at sunrise. Incorporating small but powerful touches like these can give enough incentive for guests that are shopping around to pick you over the competition.
