Hotel Supplies talks towels…

In the late, great Douglas Adam’s cult book, The HItchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, the towel was identified as ‘About the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have’.  This noteworthy quote prompted the introduction of a National Towel day when to mark the importance of the towel, everyone is encouraged to carry one (it’s the 25th May if you’re interested).

At Hotel Supplies, we sell tons of guest friendly towels.

We recognise the fact that to hoteliers, towel supply, towel collection, towel folding and towel laundering is a big part of the hotel’s day-to-day operation. The value of a towel is definitely generally underestimated as they are often the most used items in the hotel bathroom or cloakroom.

The majority of hotel guest towels are 100% cotton or a cotton, polyester blend.

          

At Hotel Supplies, all our towels and face cloths are 100% cotton because they’re more absorbent and much softer than blended fabrics – perfect for the most exacting or sensitive skinned. Every towel has a listed fabric weight which is generally measured in grams per square metre or gsm. The gsm measure refers to how dense and thick the towel is and consequently indicates how quickly it dries off. Lighter, lower gsm towels are often used in hotel spa or leisure facilities and the thicker towels make luxurious bathroom towels.

The hotel towels in the Hotel Supplies collection range from 400gsm Leisure and Spa towels to our luxurious 600gsm Madison Hotel Towels.

Our great quality, standard Chelsea towels are a cosy 500gsm  – perfect for your hotel use as they are economical, easy to wash and come in a range of sizes.

          

As sorting towels out can be a bit of a headache for hoteliers, some of our towels have handy details to help with this.  For example, our Chelsea Towels have a different number of chevron bands, depending on their size so a hotel housekeeping team can quickly spot which towel type it is. Our leisure hotel towels have blue stripes – partly as a design detail but also because it makes it much easier to quickly separate them from the general hotel bathroom towels.

It’s a well known fact that light fingered hotel guests have been known to squirrel away the odd hotel towel or two. (A washable electronic tag has even been launched to sew into towels to combat theft). If towel pilfering is a problem for you, why not make those towels a bit more promotional and add your hotel branding? Low cost, it can be a good way of re-iterating that the towels are hotel property but they’ll also remind your hotel guests about your hotel if they do take the towels away. It might even turn your hotel towels into desirable enough momentos for you to sell in your hotel shop.

We offer a special personalisation service on our Madison Hotel Towel Range. Just get in touch to find out more.

Here are some other things you might not know about the humble towel…

  1. Charles Dickens was the first to use the word ’towel’ as a verb. Shakespeare never mentioned a towel in any of his plays.
  2. The term ’throw in the towel’, was first coined in 1915 in relation to boxing. Before that, the phrase ‘throw in the sponge was used’.
  3. Bath towels were invented in the city of Bursa in Turkey in the 14th Century.
  4. Hand towels (the paper variety) were invented in 1907 by Arthur Scott of Philadelphia.
  5. In her 1897 book, ‘Travels in West Africa, Mary Henrietta Kingsly famously questions : “What is life without a towel?”

Whether you’re looking for thick, snuggly premium bath towels, lighter weight leisure towels for spas or poolside, or you just want a simple, practical and economical white Egyptian cotton towel for your hotel bathrooms, just head to the Hotel Supplies website and check out our cosy towel collection. If you can’t spot exactly what you’re after – just get in touch and we’ll do our very best to help you out.

How to help your guests prepare for a night out

Hotel bathroom

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:

Hotel Toiletries

Anyah hotel toiletriesWe 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.

Hairdryer

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.Hotel hairdryers

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.

Bathroom Mirror

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!Hotel bathroom mirrors

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.

Hotel ironing board and ironA 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.

Emergency Kits

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.Hotel Supplies black box amenities

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.
