If you’re in the hotel/hospitality industry, you know that it’s all about offering your guests comfort and pampering. From the moment they first see your establishment, everything they encounter will create an impression – the exterior, the lobby, the room, the amenities. If you want your guests to have a great experience – one that will lead to a return visit – you have to invest in quality.
But even as you understand the importance of maintaining high standards, you still have to keep an eye on the bottom line. That means being smart about where and how to spend. Ensuring that everything that goes into your hotel will wear well and last long is just smart budgeting.
Spend a little up-front to save yourself from a bigger cost later? It just makes sense.
Your guests’ sleep experience is central to their impression of your hotel. You’ve already made sure that your rooms feature comfortable mattresses, pillows and blankets. But there’s one more item that should be an essential part of any hotel room.
And that’s mattress pads for every bed.
First of all, a mattress pad provides an extra layer of cushioning, adding to your guests’ comfort. But more than this, it offers protection. Mattress pads can help protect against allergens. They repel stains. They keep mattresses odor-free. They even prevent wear and tear on the mattress itself, especially the stitching along the seams. Replacing mattresses is expensive. It just makes sense to protect them, so they can last longer.
What should you look for when choosing mattress pads? Mattress pads come in a variety of styles: flat, fitted and anchor band. Some use polyester; some use a combination of polyester on the sides and cotton on top; others provide a 100% cotton quilted topper for greater luxury.
Good quality mattress pads should be extremely durable, and should wash well without losing elasticity or softness. You can even choose environmentally-friendly pads made from recycled materials, or one with temperature-sensitive memory foam.
Whichever style you choose, be sure to select your mattress pads from a reliable source, one that you trust.
As a hospitality professional, you know that creating the best impression for your guests is all about paying attention to details. Details matter, and using the right mattress pads is a win-win situation, providing extra comfort and peace of mind for your guests, while protecting your investment.
