Contrary to common misconception, a renovation isn’t done only to repair and old or damaged property. In the hospitality industry, hotel renovation is an investment to enhance customer experience, improve your brand image, and increase revenue in the process.
Build a grab-and-go café
If your property has no onsite restaurant, then providing a facility for your guests to grab convenient food on the go is a great idea. Guests who are in a hurry can just get a sandwich or pick up of cup of joe on their way out of your hotel. The result? Satisfied customers and increased income from the coffee bar.
Renovate the bathrooms
If your hotel’s bathrooms already look old and outdated, it’s time to give it a refreshing makeover. Replace the tiles, sinks, fixtures, and mirror with ones that have modern style. If yours is a luxury hotel and the baths don’t have a bathtub, it’ll be great to invest in hot tubs with jets for a more relaxing spa-like experience. Your guests will never complain!
Add some furniture
Do you have empty space on any open area in your hotel? Fill it out by adding several furniture pieces to create functional and stylish mini-lounges where your guests can hang out and socialize with family and friends.
Create a cozy hang-out space in the lobby
Rather than go to the local café, your guests can just sip coffee and relax in a third space you create in the lobby. To entice people, provide Wi-Fi connection and computer terminal with working printer. This way, your hotel also provides convenience to guests who are on a business trip or have business matters to attend to.
Why would you spend time and money for costly renovations for your hotel? Because you want the best experience possible for your guests. Once you see the returns on your investments, your hotel renovations will definitely be worth it.
