Whether it is a full-scale renovation or just some simple updates to the outdated features in your hotel, sooner or later, your hotel will need to be remodeled. This is an essential part of making sure your hotel stays competitive with others in the area, as well as to ensure the satisfaction of your guests. The key is to know when your hotel is overdue to be renovated or remodeled and choose updates that will increase your revenue.
Here at Ascension General Contractors, we have a few things we think you should know about before remodeling your hotel to make the most of your investment.
Do An In-Depth Review
Remodeling your hotel is a big project to undertake, so it is imperative that you are as thorough as possible from the beginning. You probably already have a few updates in mind, but be sure that you look at the project from the traveler’s eyes. Determine the must-haves vs. the things you’d like to have. Think of the traveler’s experience overall. What things can be improved both aesthetically and functionally to improve guest satisfaction? These are the things you will want to share with your designer or architect to help with the plan moving forward.
Be Smart with the Design
Most likely, remodeling your hotel is not something that happens frequently. Choosing styles that are classic and neutral can help make sure that the design of your hotel won’t go out of date before the next time you are able to make updates. Again, the goal is to ensure guest satisfaction, so choose something that will make your guests comfortable. It is also important to note that when you are remodeling your hotel, you have a perfect opportunity to add features to help you stand out from your competition. This can lead to additional revenue opportunities by including special facilities and elements.
Establish A Schedule to Minimize Disruption
Depending on what updates your remodeling project includes, you will need to establish a schedule accordingly. Be sure to inform guests of any expected disturbance. Choosing a contractor that will follow all safety protocols properly will help to ensure guest safety and that construction sites are not accessible to guests. It is a good idea to add a quiet time to the schedule. For the noisier parts of the project, consider having your contractor work on a schedule where those updates can be done at check-in or check-out times. Additionally, be prepared to give special consideration to any guests who need rooms away from the busier area under construction.
