The best thing to do when it comes to renovating your hotel is to make sure it stands out. It is important to focus on cost-effectiveness when it comes to investing for long terms benefits, however, one must ensure that it is done correctly. Your reputation is on the line, and it is vital to keep up with modern trends and do it better than the hotel down the road. Especially considering a location like Tasmania, which is rich in luxury tourism, it is essential to keep in mind all those intricacies that make them step out in the market amongst the various other competitors offering the same service.
The happier the customers, the more they will come back which means more revenue in your pocket.
Here are the top 3 hotel trends to consider when renovating:
Adding Social lobbies:
Guests need a spot to power up, meet with colleagues, connect their devices to Wi-Fi and be able to have a private conversation when they are out of their rooms. An inviting lobby is just the place. Now called a social lobby the aim is to provide a gathering space to meet and socialise and be able to use the facilities of modern technology such as Wi-Fi and charging their gadgets.
When you start renovating allow for some table and chairs where people can set up their laptops or iPad with plenty of charging ports and room to move but also be private. Although lobbies had the traditional outlook to it earlier, now hotels are changing them into a more social lounge with couches, Wi-Fi, coffee facilities and places where travellers can sit and check their emails etc. Time and efforts are now being invested into creating interesting work of art in their hotel lobbies in Hobart, and various other hotels all across Tasmania, to give the guests an unforgettable experience.
There was plenty of positive feedback regarding the more social atmosphere but allowing for privacy if you need to. This was understood from reviewing various feedbacks from hotel guests.
Guest-rooms with plugins:
Hotels are now getting up to speed with the technological demands of the growing world. Business people travel with smartphones, laptops that all need to be plugged in and charged several times while they are staying at the hotel.
Guests would prefer to stay in their own private room rather than carrying their laptop devices all the way down to the lobby. Allowing for outlets to charge and run such devices will keep hotel stayers happy and able to perform the duties they need to. Especially considering the business working class guests that stay at various Tasmanian hotels who expect not just a service but also luxury of comfort and options.
Even just having a family staying in a motel room there will be plugs needed to charge the parent’s cell phones, children may have an iPad, a laptop and an iPod that all need to be charged.
Most hotels are going for ten outlets to allow for technology devices among others like lamps and electric blankets. No one wants to be crawling on the floor or bending right down to reach power points having them at average height works well.
Changing things up:
Reinventing Food and Beverage to reconfigure the restaurant design along with the menu to freshen everything up and give the menu a new lease on life. This serves as an incentive for customers to come out and try the new items on the menu. The flourishing tourism in Tasmania has led
Most tend to design mainly on practicability when it comes to dining areas. While this is good, you need to be introducing creativity and add some romantic dining spaces, unique dinnerware with chairs and tables that stand out. Match styles and designs but don’t go for the traditional look that is old hat now and people want to see modern styling and current trends. Moreover, sprucing up the dining or diversifying the cuisines provided can further lead to increasing employment opportunities for hotel jobs facing the population.
