Technology Trends Hotels Can Expect for 2018

by

Technology trends are constantly changing, and if hotels want to keep up with the times, they need to stay on top of these trends. You can choose to stay stagnant and continue doing what you're doing, but you would risk the loss of new customers who come to expect certain things from their hotels. So, what are the technology trends for hotels in 2018?Ease of Use on SmartphonesMany major companies offer ease of use for people who prefer to do almost everything from their phone, rather than a desktop or laptop computer. Because people are growing used to this treatment, they expect it in their hotels as well. Smartphone apps are one of the most popular ways for customers to book or access their rooms, and to check-in when they arrive. Not only are these apps easier for guests to use, which makes them more likely to choose your hotel over your competitors, but it makes sense financially as well. An app is not overly expensive to build and maintain and can cut back on costs in certain areas where the app will take over.It also makes it faster and easier for guests to check in during the busiest times of the year, especially over major holidays. This will help your staff to be faster and more efficient, as well as less stressed and happier with their work.Smart HotelsOne of the largest trends of the past few years that will continue into 2018 and beyond are smart homes, smart cars, and now smart hotels. Guests expect their stay at your hotel to be quick and efficient without waiting in lines or dealing with too many people. To do this, many of the major hotels are imputing smart hotel technology. According to an article from Ambius, this includes:• Keyless room entry (through your hotel's app) • Personalized entertainment selections (all your guest's favorite TV shows) • Robotic butlers • Personalized guest room climate control and lightingYou can also include check-in and check-out options on your hotel's app, easier room service options (calls are no longer needed, just use the app), you can even implement a hotel store that is run through your app, in case your guests run out of (or forget) something important like a toothbrush or deodorant.This will add ease for your guests and, because people like things to be easy in a world that is complicated enough, it may increase the amount of new and returning guests throughout the year when these guests are more relaxed and recommend your hotel to others.Personalized Guest ProfilesTake advantage of the many guest management software's out there to personalize your guest's experience and cause them to want to return to your hotel again and again. When a guest books a room, you can give them the option to fill out a profile of their likes and dislikes as it relates to their stay in your hotel. For example:• Favorite food or beverage • Desired room temperature • Favorite color • Favorite snack • Favorite TV showsYou could then use that information to make sure that those favorite items are already in the guest's room when they arrive. This personal touch will make your guest feel more at home and is a guaranteed way to impress them. They will tell their friends, family, and coworkers how you anticipated their needs and desires, and you'll get even more guests in future.By going above and beyond what other hotels are doing, staying on top of trends, and putting your guests first, you can become the go-to hotel for your guests and everyone in their sphere of influence.

The five senses: how to offer guests a better sleep experience

by
Lucas Keizer
4 months ago

Around the world, hoteliers are applying many different strategies to combat noise pollution and offer their guests a good night's sleep. This ranges from window, floor and wall insulation to installing white noise machines and having sleep brigades patrol the corridors. But scientific research is showing that to guarantee your guests a sound sleep it is not enough to provide a quiet room: it involves addressing all the five senses. Hotel guests are ever more demanding and hotels look to distinguish themselves by offering an enhanced service. In a world where sleep is increasingly a rare commodity -30% of all people have trouble sleeping-, hoteliers who can provide their clients with an better sleep experience may just have the edge. Several luxury hotel chains have already started experimenting with new solutions to improve sleep. At Four Seasons Hotels, heat-absorbing mattresses are provided and guests can control room temperature and music. Hilton Hotels and Resorts use a special canopy bed which regulates heat and moisture flow. And at Sleep Inn Hotels, rooms come with soft lighting and sleek design. Yet any solution may still fall short of providing what guests really need if it addresses sleep first and foremost as a technical problem. Scientific research into sleep and insomnia treatment shows that all the five senses need to be taken into consideration in order to ensure a good night's sleep: Touch means a cool room, the right mattress firmness and cool fabrics; Sight denotes a sufficiently dark room and relaxing colour scheme; Hearing points to a quiet room and the use of masking noises; Smell indicates the need for allergy-free rooms and the use of aromas; Taste refers to the fact that fat-rich food, caffeine and alcohol interfere with sleep, while light foods such as eggs and turkey (which contain tryptophan) may help induce sleep. Combining all these factors into a more comprehensive approach may provide a lasting answer to sleep problems in hotels. An example of this is the five senses sleep program developed by the Quietroom Foundation in close cooperation with the Dutch Knowledge Centre Sound Insulation (KGI) and Somnio, a scientific institute specialising in sleep therapy and insomnia treatment. The program translates Somnio's findings into a set of practical solutions, which offer hoteliers the chance to create a complete and satisfying sleep experience for their guests. So what are the most important ingredients of a successful sleep program and how can hoteliers apply these? Make sure that rooms are sufficiently sound-insulated, i.e. walls, floors, windows, doors, technical installations and corridors. Provide guests with a choice of ambient sound/white noise; Create a pleasant room decor with muted and balanced colour schemes for wall paper, carpeting, curtains and bed linen. Provide blackout liners on curtains and draperies; Have rooms fitted with adjustable lighting and a choice of lamps as well as adjustable room temperature; Provide comfortable beds and give your guests a choice of mattresses and/or mattress toppers, as well as a choice of bed linen (cotton/synthetic); Have a pillow menu available in rooms offering special pillows for snoring, headache, stress, etc.; Have air purifying installations installed in rooms, provide a choice of relaxing aromas and essential oils, e.g. aromatic cotton balls, bed linen sprays, etc., as well as a choice of music; Provide additional (paid) services, e.g. healthy food, exercise programs, yoga, and massage. It's a well-known fact that good sleep benefits people's concentration, mood, memory and general health. By consistently applying the five senses sleep program, hoteliers can contribute significantly to their guests' well-being and overall satisfaction.
