If you want your cleaning staff to be happy, your textiles to last as long as possible, and your hotel to leave as small of a carbon footprint as possible, then you need to provide a little training for your hotel guests. Here are a few tips to help your guests leave the room the right way.
- Used towels – Sometimes you may have one guest stay in a room that is intended for more people. Therefore, there may be a number of towels in the bathroom. To limit the amount of washing you have to do, make sure guests know to put used towels on the floor. Make sure guests know that they can use a towel several days in a row, just like they do at home, before putting it on the floor for the staff to wash.
- Bed sheets – Again, if you have a room with multiple beds, they may not both be used. Encouraging guests to strip their own bedsheets and leave them in a pile on the floor can confirm what bed they used, especially if you get a type-A guest who insists on making the bed every morning.
- Set the temperature – If you have a temperature for the room to be set to when rooms are unoccupied, let your guests know, and recommend they set the thermostat before checking out. It can save you a ton of money if all of those rooms that sit empty between checkout and cleaning are not running the heat or air (having a CIRQ+ in each room can also help in this regard).
