We’re more than halfway through 2019, and it’s time to take a look at what guests are clamoring for at hotels. Here are some of the top hotel trends right now.
- Boutique hotels that offer local charm – While business people stick to a standard hotel experience, the new generation of traveler is looking for new experiences. That means catering to local experience, and it is helping boutique and independent hotels to make their mark.
- Farm to table or local cuisine – This is a hot trend in restaurants in general, and it certainly holds true at hotel restaurants. If you can source your food locally or even have your own garden, that’s a huge selling point for the modern tourist who wants to know where their meal is coming from.
- In-room tech – From wireless charging and Bluetooth speakers to being able to adjust the lights and thermostat with a smartphone app, hotel guests are definitely on board with the technological advances being offered by hotels. You may still need some room cards for older customers, but most will be willing to unlock their door with a wave of their phone. We’d like to introduce you to one such advancement in hotel room tech that can appeal to guests and save you money.
