With fall around the corner and summer travel wrapping up, it’s a great time to consider improvements or upgrades that can be made outside the guestroom of your property. Including video walls, audio, connectivity, outdoor furniture, commercial appliances, and much more, there are a variety of products that can be upgraded to improve the guest experience, increase revenue, or save costs for you.
One big way to add a wow-factor to your hotel public space is to install a video wall. You can create stunning displays to impress the guests or use them to advertise new features and places around your property or local areas. If this is something you had quoted in the past, there are now multiple out-of-the-box, all-in-one solutions from companies like Absen and LG, along with several others. In addition to an easier install process, dvLED costs have come down considerably. With these two factors, it’s a great time to revisit them – or consider for the first time. If you don’t have the space for a video wall, a single new digital signage panel with an easier to use content management system is another option for advertising or interesting digital displays.
With many people who travel in groups, they like to spend time together in the public space. With appealing, eye-catching outdoor furniture, you can create a fun environment for them to spend time together and create memories, leading them to talk highly of your property about their trip. Besides creating nice areas to gather, you can take these spaces further with outdoor TVs and great audio, so your guests can enjoy a big event together, as well.
One last thing to consider is the appliances in the back of house, and even the front of house. New merchandisers with colorful LEDs and features can create displays to showcase products in the lobby or restaurant areas. The BOH appliances should be looked at, as well, if they haven’t been upgraded in a while. Having newer commercial appliances which meet NSF standards, control temperature, and are energy efficient will help you meet codes, control energy costs, and prevent untimely breakdowns in a busy situation.
All of these items are carried and in-stock at Exertis Almo, so I encourage you to reach out to your representative to learn more about how we can help you improve spaces outside of the guestroom.
