Running a hotel? Wondering what to do about beating the competition or tips for sustainability? Do you have safety concerns or questions about preventative maintenance?
If you are running a hotel that’s been in business for sometime and are worried about the new guys in town, consider refreshing your look and amenities. See what your competition is offering, and go above and beyond if possible. Going green is a great way to lure in new clientele and tackle some of those upgrades. Switching out lightbulbs and using recycled paper are easy places to start. Changing out your standard toilets for low flow, and upgrading to energy efficient appliances is a bold way to go green. A message of sustainability will make an impression on guests and your bottom line.
When it comes to hotel safety, pools may be your number one area of concern. Make sure all drains are regulated properly and that handrails are installed correctly. Also, pools must be compliant with ADA regulations. Along with safety comes preventative maintenance. This involves checking on the obvious things like plumbing, small appliances and lightbulbs as well as the less obvious things like HVAC. Preventative maintenance addresses little fixes before they become big problems.
