Opinion: Five strategies for creating safer and healthier hotel experiences

Whether you own a hotel or are considering starting up one, the safety of your guests should always be your top priority, says outsourcing expert Alan Ridgell

Hotels are seen as more than just a temporary place; they are also regarded as a haven for those who stay there. As a result, you must ensure that your guests have the best possible experience while staying at your hotel.

Your guests chose you because they trust you with the safety and security of their lives and belongings. It would not be a good reflection on you if your customer were dissatisfied with your service. If a guest has just arrived from another country and is staying at your hotel, they expect you to provide the same level of security that they get at home.

This article, on the other hand, focuses on five strategies you can use to provide safer and healthier experiences for your guests.

  1. Prioritize cleanliness: A healthy environment is clean. To keep your guests healthy, ensure that your sanitation team is operational. Your hotel’s surroundings should always be kept clean. Floors should be cleaned regularly, and surfaces should be wiped to remove dust. Make the cleaning process visible to your visitors. This will assure them that your hotel is committed to cleanliness. It is also a way of showing your guests that you are concerned about their safety. In addition, you should provide sanitation for your visitors. You want to make sure that their hands are always sanitized. Sanitizers should be provided to your guests before they enter the hotel and while they are settling into their rooms. You don’t want your guests bringing illnesses with them.
  2. Optimize your Facility for better health: You should improve your facility to be healthier for your visitors. Your hotel should always provide a safe environment for your visitors. Hotel appliances, such as air conditioners, should be serviced so that they blow healthy hair. Healthy hair cannot be blown by an air conditioner that has not been cleaned or serviced in a long time. As a result, you must ensure that it remains clean. Your kitchen and bathroom faucets should be filtered with a RO water filtration system. Although your guests may not drink from the kitchen faucet, you should be prepared for the unexpected because children are unpredictable. By filtering the toilet and kitchen faucets, you can make the water safe to drink for everyone.
  3. Create an avenue for exercising: Some hotel guests do not exercise regularly; they only exercise when staying in a hotel. You don’t want to deprive them of this opportunity. You should provide a way for your guests to stay fit. People who have home gyms or work out every day want to continue working out while staying at your hotel. Creating a gym and yoga rooms allows them to continue their daily ritual. Adding a fitness center to your hotel can also attract customers. Some guests would rather stay in a hotel that has exercise facilities than one that does not. As a result, gyms and swimming pools are essential in your hotel.
  4. Food options: Different people have different dietary preferences. While some people prefer beef, others prefer vegetables. As a result, you must ensure that your hotel provides a variety of food for various people. If you want to cater to your guests, you must serve food that they can eat. Meals for pescatarians, vegetarians, vegans, and all other food preferences should be available at your hotel. Ensuring this not only demonstrates that you care about your guests’ health but also that you are a top-rated hotel that serves a variety of cuisines.
  5. Give your guests quality sleep: Your guests will need a good night’s sleep after flying for hours from one country to another. To ensure your guests sleep, complement your soft bed with comfortable pillows. Some guests dislike sleeping on hard beds. You could have various bed options and ask your guests before offering them a room. Getting enough sleep can help a person relax after a stressful day. As a health and wellness expert, all you have to do is make sure your guests are well rested. Your duvet, bedspread, and other sleeping garments must be comfortable. All of this contributes to your guest getting a good night’s sleep.

If you want your hotel to stand out, you must invest in your guests’ health and wellness. People want to stay in a hotel where they can be sure their health is safe. As a result, your hotel must provide guests with a safe and healthy environment.
