The off-season is the ideal time for hotel owners to renovate their facilities and be up to par for the next high season. Please keep the following suggested tips in mind when deciding how to stretch your renovation budget.
Assess your online reviews on websites such as TripAdvisor and Google. Often, poor reviews from customers are due to outdated, uncomfortable, and/or worn-down furniture. Having the right furniture that fits your guests’ needs will play a major role in their satisfaction.
How can you deliver the best possible furniture for your guests and keep expenditures within a tight budget? The answer is simple: quality, pre-owned furniture. Look for furniture pieces from 4 & 5-star hotels being sold by reputable hotel furniture liquidators with good references and strong shipping experience.
Keep in mind that hotel liquidators focus on selling their inventory before it reaches their warehouses to minimize storage costs, so the best room packages will often sell out quickly. Act with a sense of urgency in your decision making when you see a room package that is a good fit with your needs.
You can also restore individual pieces in your hotel rooms that will have a large impact on your guests with only a minor expense. Furniture restoration can save you money and give new life to tired looking furniture. Restoration is also an eco-friendly option that will appeal to today’s hotel guests who are environmentally-conscious.
Furniture restoration companies can efficiently and cost effectively remove blemishes, scratches, chips and stains from case goods. Their efforts can revive and extend the life of your existing furniture, saving you cash that can then be used in other areas of your hotel.
To be as efficient as possible, look for hotel furniture liquidators that also offer furniture restoration services. That way the change out of some pieces of furniture and the restoration of other pieces can be done simultaneously to reduce the number of days your rooms are out of service.
