The Challenge The Godfrey Hotel & Cabanas Tampa sought to improve the flow and efficiency of its housekeeping team. The property boasts a multitude of room types, but lacked a way to accurately measure estimated clean times per room. Plus, housekeepers often had a hard time navigating the hotel’s intricate layout — leading to wasted time and lost productivity. In addition, the hotel was still tracking maintenance requests manually, which meant longer wait times for important fixes.
Why it matters: By incorporating Optii's Housekeeping Solutions, The Godfrey Hotel & Cabanas Tampa's housekeeping and maintenance team was able to increase productivity and efficiency when it came to responding to guest requests.
  • Optii's Housekeeping Solution optimizes labor and cleaning sequences for planning efficiency and faster turnaround times. It employs predictive, intelligent AI to optimize room attendant routes in real-time to deliver cleaning efficiency and an excellent guest experience and centralizes operations for full visibility and improved team performance. By optimizing it to the way The Godfrey Hotel & Cabanas Tampa's team operates, they were able to increase their productivity.

Top 3 Core Objectives: The Godfrey Hotel & Cabanas Tampa sought to improve the flow and efficiency of its housekeeping and maintenance team.
  • Improve The Flow: By mapping out routes for room attendants using PMS data points and AI, Optii has reduced operational friction, enabling the housekeeping team to run more efficiently.

  • Improve Efficiency: Optii also predicts cleaning times by guest and provides a daily ‘look up’ showing how long each room type took to clean. This allows for more accurate planning.

  • Improve Maintenance Requests: Optii helps the team track maintenance requests in real time. Issues are recorded electronically, rather than manually. The hotel now acts and responds much faster to fix problems and deliver an exceptional and problem-free guest experience.
