Welcome a Weekend Wind Down

Welcome a Weekend Wind Down

This May bank holiday and holiday weekends to come, your guests will be looking to explore the new sites that surround their new location as-well-as wind down in their hotel room and take a break from their busy lifestyle. Like a shoulder to cry on, you can provide the cosy, protective environment your residents need, in order to help them relax and let it all go.

 

  1. Firstly, expected requirements are in order to welcome your guests.

Refreshed tea, coffee, biscuits
Origami towels
Toiletries provided
TV with as many channels as possible
Hotel room service information presented neatly
Friendly staff… etc etc

Distinction Project
  1.  A cosy looking environment.

Encourage your guests to relax with rugs, throws & cushions are THE simplest and most effective accessories to help transform your minimal room into a boudoir of cosy-ness. These soft-feeling accoutrements come to the rescue every time when it comes to comfort.

3. Photo frame service


For frequenting travelling clients, who may be susceptible to loneliness whilst confined in a hotel. If not already a service available at your hotel, why not introduce a photo frame service in which your customers can send a photo prior to arriving and be welcomed with a photo of their loved ones. This is a great service making your customers feel not so far away from home.

  1. Sofa(Beds) and armchairs

Whether your suite/room has the space for it, a sofa is a wonderful piece of furniture for your residents to feel at home. Watching the TV, or chilling reading a magazine – quaint, comfort is what you’ll be ensuring your guests with their stay.

IF possible, allow your furniture to be moveable – allow your customers to make the room suit their needs and let them create their own feng shui with what suits their mood.

5.Entrance music


For new builds and refurbishing projects. Timely controlled music for your guests when arriving to their room is a very conscientious and warm touch to your customers stay. Especially if the music is gentle and soft sounding your guests will feel relaxed and comforted by the sounded welcome.

 

 

 

As well as sounding music in the hotel room, music playing in the foyer, entrance and hallways are also a great way to keep residents calm and peaceful.

A Room with NO View

A Room with NO View

‘Oh darling, why didn’t you check there was a view in our room?!’

A window, a view. What a privilege. This minor but crucial detail can be the decision maker to unsettling a relationship. The only way they can rid these destructive emotions is to leave the place of temporary residence and enjoy the surroundings to forget the couple’s unfortunate miscommunication; therefore leaving a bad memory of the room/hotel increasing the chance of these customers never to return again!

Dramatic…yes! But we have a point!

Of the majority, we desire a view with our room and as Basil Fawlty states: what we all pay and expect to see out of every hotel we visit, ‘Is it the Sydney Opera House, perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeests swinging majestically…’. however, the view ceases to amaze our expectations.
We have the alternative answer that will help ensure your customers return and remember that when their room wasn’t booked with a view they didn’t mind and enjoyed their stay the same as if they were looking to an expansive landscape of Italy.

Here’s how:

  1. White/Light walls!

Increase the brightness of the room with the old trick – a blank canvas wall. Help the clients eye, gaze onto the fabulous furniture and the accessories you have in the room. The light colours will simulate an expansive and open feel, reflecting the colour in the room and illuminating any light that is in the room.

  1. Compliment these walls using light, bright lampshades and light bulbs.

Brightly coloured lampshades are a great accessory to help irradiate a room. Especially if they are using well lit light bulbs that adequately mimic the spectrum of light that’s given in natural daylight such as Seasonal Affective Disorder bulbs (SAD).

3. Expanse with Mirrors!


Adding mirrors to the room will help simulate the effect of a window or reflection of rays entering the room. As well as bounce around the light colours in the room to expand the space and depth.

  1. Hidden lighting

Hiding the light in the room creates the feeling of an open and exposed space, the same way light creeps into an open window. 

This can be used with lower ground lighting, hidden lamps or tucked away in walls.

5. Artwork


As well as it’s obvious purpose of mimicking a window in the room, the freedom of using a variety artistic canvases will help break up the wall and ceiling to add texture and variety. Therefore the artwork you choose could reflect the fields of Babylon and your hotel residents shouldn’t complain at all.
