These days, travelers aren’t simply looking for a place to lay their heads at night. Instead, they’re looking for a unique experience paired with a hotel that captures the flavor of the city they’re visiting. Those expectations, and others, are shaping current trends in hotel design.
Today, many hotels feature innovative indoor-outdoor spaces, integrating themselves into the city, or taking advantage of the natural beauty of their surroundings. While many smart hotels offer their guests high-tech experiences, other modern establishments incorporate ‘green’ practices into everything from water-saving shower heads to saltwater pools.
No longer are lobbies just for checking in and out. They’ve become social hubs with spacious living areas, live music, restaurants and bars. Now, hotels’ unique features create photo-worthy experiences guests are quick to snap and share, garnering excellent publicity for your establishment.
Even as the experience of staying in a hotel has changed, driving changes in hotel design, many of the logistical challenges of operating a hotel remain the same.
Pulling it together with the right procurement and logistics partner
Acquiring and administering the large quantities of facilities materials and front-of-house supplies a hotel needs to make it successfully to opening day can be daunting. Then, the hotel must meet the wants and needs of guests on an ongoing basis. For independent and boutique hotels, it can be especially challenging to manage all those details and still ensure a first-class guest experience. Selecting and purchasing supplies, organizing warehousing, and ensuring on-time delivery can be costly and overwhelming, especially if your hotel doesn’t have the corporate resources to manage those material logistics.
