Hotels come in all shapes and sizes, and each one has its own unique set of needs to run successfully. As we transition into reopening, each hotel will have different requirements for setting up safety guidelines. When it comes to properly protecting your guests and employees, there are many different ways to go about it. Read on to learn which face masks are right for your hotel and how you should properly implement them into your opening.
For a Boutique Hotel
In a smaller boutique hotel or bed & breakfast, you interact much more closely with your guests. Taking extra precautions to help them feel safe in close environments is highly important. In these cases, reusable masks are highly recommended – particularly ones that fit your face well to prevent the transfer of germs. As a boutique hotel owner, you likely have a hand in every facet of the business – being constantly on the go is part of the responsibility. These Hanes 3-Ply Masks provide a comfortable feel and customized face coverage to help everyone on your team move from one duty to the next.
For a Business or Airport Hotel
By nature, business and airport hotels are built for more short-term stays, and guests typically cycle through relatively quickly. Because of this, they must be held to a higher standard of cleanliness. Reusable BioSmart masks would be the smart choice for this type of business, as their patented, bleach-activated technology helps the mask actively kill 99.9% of germs and bacteria. Employees wearing these masks are better protected than they would be with a standard reusable mask – a fact that keeps your employees safe and your guests with peace of mind. In environments like these, we would also recommend face shields for any customer-facing employees such as a concierge or bellhop. Face shields with glasses or headband support are our top choices.
For a Resort Hotel
Resort hotels are designed to hold many guests and typically encourage relaxation and interaction in public areas. It is important in these situations to provide the proper accommodations in all locations. Giving guests a disposable mask as they enter public areas such as the lobby, pools, or entertainment spaces will encourage safe practice among guests and set the tone that you are taking reopening standards seriously.
No matter your hotel structure, following safety guidelines is necessary to ensure a successful reopening.
