If you don’t renovate your hotel, your guests will fade away. It is as simple as that. The hotel’s renovation depends on the wear of the building and the budget. Whether you run a 5-star hotel in the center of the city or a small one in the suburbs, your hotel needs renovation.

Types of Hotel Renovation

Minor Renovations: 

These renovations involve repairs, repainting, and replacing drapes, carpets, furniture, wall coverings, and other minor fixtures requiring attention. Minor renovations are relatively inexpensive when compared to significant renovations. However, they are less frequent and are mainly done to keep the hotel looking the best.

Major Renovations:

Significant renovations are carried out to increase or decrease the hotel space. These renovations come with the most significant changes, including changing the physical hotel layout. Hotels may prefer to remove the walls to increase the area. Some hotels make partitions in a room for the guests’ convenience. Furthermore, the floors, roofs, and other elements like doors and windows may need frequent renovation. At times minor renovations like lighting, furniture, and bedding are included and done along with significant renovations. Below listed are a few significant renovations:

Make sure to minimize the guest’s inconvenience while renovating the hotel.

Undoubtedly, It is the responsibility of the management to be transparent about the ongoing renovation. Also, to avoid negative reviews, intimate the guests upon arrival. Work in sections, like one floor at a time, so that you have others to accommodate them. If you have no choice but to adapt them near the construction, try offering them discounts and compensate. Be sure to schedule quiet hours. Significantly, the off-season is the best time to begin renovations.

Finally, after the renovation, keep the excitement alive to flaunt it. It is not only for looking best but also for marketing purposes. So that the renovation can be beneficial. Here are some tips:
