As part of the travel experience, be it a holiday or business trip, hotel guests will often be heading out for the evening. Whether for a wedding evening do, romantic date or wild night on the town, guests will want to look their best. Any quality hotel establishment should make the getting ready process as easy and stress-free as possible.
Inevitably, there will always be the ultra prepared guest who brings a wheelbarrow of tools for getting ready – hair tongs, ironing board, enough cosmetics to make over the entire hotel – but there will also be the wildly unprepared guests. Cater for all scenarios and ensure your guests have everything they need to brush up and head out dressed in their glad rags. Here are a selection of our top tips for providing a seamless getting ready experience:
We often mention the importance of quality hotel toiletries and we cannot stress enough the significance of the small details. Provide luxurious brands that will make your guest feel valued and pampered. Opt for sleek packaging to reinforce a sense of opulence and choose invigorating scents that will leave your guests feeling boosted and refreshed.
With a growing awareness of environmental issues, consumers are more tuned in to the source of the products they use. We would recommend an eco-friendly collection, such as the Anyah range, which is approved by the EU eco-label mark of quality for its packaging. Furthermore, avoid any products that utilise preserving ingredients like parabens and formaldehyde or even animal based ingredients. Guests will appreciate the natural feel and their skin will thank them for it.
Generally expected in hotel rooms nowadays, hairdryers are an essential hotel accessory to provide. Go a step further and opt for a high powered hairdryer, such as the Valera Swiss Turbo. It will mean that your guests can style their hair in half the usual time and will appreciate the extra time they reap for putting some finishing touches to their evening look.
Here at Hotel Supplies we offer a range of hairdryers. From budget, compact options to luxurious, high-end alternatives, there is something to suit all establishments. Choose between our Northmace & Hendon hairdryers or the Valera range and decide between a simplistic white colour or more extravagant steel gold.
Of course most hotel bathrooms will be equipped with a sizeable bathroom mirror. However, for an important finishing touch, ensure you are also supplying a smaller vanity mirror for shaving or applying makeup. No one can achieve that perfect eyeliner flick from a distance in a large mirror!
Whether free-standing or wall-mounted, your vanity mirror should not only be practical but look good, seamlessly blending in with the rest of the bathroom. Ensure there is a magnifying side so your guests can complete any of the finer details of their grooming with precision and ease.
Irons and Ironing Boards
There is nothing worse than unpacking your shirt or dress only to find your packing skills weren’t quite up to standard when you see a noticeable set of creases adorning your outfit. As your only outfit option, you need an iron and fast. Imagine the relief when you see one hiding away in your hotel room, ready for you to use and just waiting to save the day.
A functioning iron and ironing board can mean the difference between a relaxing, enjoyable getting ready experience and a frenzied one. Ironing centres can be bulky products so ensure you opt for a space saving solution but never compromise on safety. Functionality and practicality are key here.
Toothpaste, nail trimmers and cottons pads: all notoriously easy to forget when travelling but nevertheless important, especially when preparing for an evening out. Be sure to have a backup for your guests so you can save the day. Cover the essentials with a vanity kit, dental kit, shaving kit, nail kit and sewing kit.
Here at Hotel Supplies, we provide a range of hotel guest amenities, featuring all the necessary emergency kits. These include our Black Box range, Luxury Boxed range and White Box range. Packaged in contemporary boxes, these guest amenities are both highly practical and uniquely stylish.
Ultimately you need to be putting yourself in the shoes of your hotel guests and thinking about how you can make their life as easy as possible. Getting ready for an event or night out should be fun and relaxing. Provide the necessary tools and your guests will enjoy a seamless evening and they’ll have you to thank for it.
