Boutique Hotel Must-Haves
In our tech-driven age, it is important that boutique hotels in Mexico have items that guests expect of hotels.
- Quality Wi-Fi is a must. Business travelers need access to work, and many guests use social media to post about their stay.
- Boutique hotels that have local cuisine nearby should offer a unique food experience. Food and drinks that leave a lasting impression should be available.
- Comfortable beds, clean rooms, and excellent furniture are a must. Guests won’t be able to enjoy their experience if they are waking up sore.
- Easy options for booking and check-in will keep your front desk flowing smoothly.
Focus on Smooth Systems
Focus on how your hotel runs. Having an effective proprietary technology like P&L-centric software gives hoteliers the tools needed to manage their bottom lines. An efficient front desk keeps the whole hotel running smoothly in busy seasons. An efficient front desk uses software to manage check-ins, check-outs, bookings, and accounting. With the front desk managing housekeeper as well, it is important to make sure the staff is equipped with the tools to manage the chaos calmly and with speed so that nothing slips through the cracks to give managers headaches later on. The ability to stand out from competitors depends on the full scope of your business running smoothly.
Your system must be able to:
- Take bookings on your website
- Advertise your rooms on a variety of channels while avoiding the mishap of a double-booking
- Track where your online sales are coming from to gain insight into where to focus your advertising
- Keep an eye on competitor bookings and prices Manage the housekeeping tasks
- Manage the property from anywhere
The more personalized features you offer that match your hotel’s brand identity craft a unique experience for your guest. This should all be tied together by everything that your hotel does. The service that you offer and how they are offered must directly tie in with how you want your hotel to be seen, and they should all be summed up into your value proposition. These amenities and hotel identity become your hotel’s competitive advantage. Once you’ve defined your competitive sets, which is the list of potential competitors you are competing for bookings against, knowing your value proposition will help you maintain your competitive pricing strategy
