2 Affordable Ways To Make Your Hotel Feel More Luxurious To Guests

If you own or manage a hotel that has a tight budget, then you are likely always looking for ways to improve the experiences of your guests without spending a lot of money. While you may not be able to afford to put a pricey luxury hot-tub in every guest room or spend a fortune on top-of-the-line furniture, follow these three simple tips for improving guest experiences without breaking your budget. 

1. Invest in Quality Bedding

Many of your guests may be staying at your hotel just to get a good night's rest while spending much of the day and night out enjoying the area or in business meetings. One aspect of your hotel they are sure to remember is the whether the bed was comfortable enough for them to get a good night's sleep. 

Whether you can afford to place high-quality mattresses on every bed frame or not, you can make beds feel more comfortable by making a much smaller investment in good bedding. Even older mattresses can feel super-comfortable again when they are topped with micro-foam mattress toppers or any type of plush topper you can afford. 

Also consider spending just a few extra bucks on better pillows, such as as faux-down feather ones that are much more affordable than real feather pillows while also feeling just as luxurious. 

Add soft pillowcases and silky sheets, and you can make your beds feel luxurious without investing in high-priced, luxury mattresses and frames. 

2. Provide Quality Toiletries with Attractive Labels

While some of your guests do bring their own toiletries, many do not and rely on your hotel to provide shampoo, conditioner, and soap. Spend a few extra dollars and quality formulas with great scents, and your guests will remember. 

Make these toiletries attractive by contacting a private label manufacturer to help make labels that state the following: 

  1. The formula quality. Even guests that don't use your toiletries will appreciate that you chose quality formulas, so don't be afraid to brag!  
  2. An ingredient list. Guests with allergies will appreciate you putting in the effort to place an ingredient list on every toiletry. 
  3. Your hotel name. Don't think of guests taking toiletries home that they don't use as a loss. It is great advertisement of your hotel name that you should take advantage of. 

Remember that guests only staying at your hotel to rest their heads and take quick showers will remember how comfortable your bed was and how their shower and grooming sessions were in the bathroom. Investing just a little cash to improve these two aspects of your guests' experiences can pay off greatly when guests not only return over and over, but they tell their friends and co-workers how much they loved your hotel.
