When travelers talk of hotel amenities, they’re often referring to such property accoutrements as an infinity-edge pool, luxurious spa facility, or even exclusive concierge extras. But, as those of us on the service side of hospitality know, one of the most important elements of a pleasant guest stay is the essential amenities of the guest bath.

Yes, there are the all-important bath and body collections – guests definitely arrive with a defined set of expectations. But, consider the items that are only noticed when they are not in place. For example, a tabletop mirror that helps guests get ready for a day of business or an evening of pleasure. If it’s not there, it’s likely that you’ll hear about it.

It’s these types of amenities, or accessories, that our product experts make sure you remember. And, as your trusted guides, we offer suitable options from trusted brands like Sunbeam. In fact, the Sunbeam Lighted Tabletop Mirror  is all about style and convenience. It includes a nine-minute auto off feature, 1x and 3x magnification, and Halo perimeter lighting that provides enhanced visibility. It’s also easy to clean and won’t pit or tarnish.

Of course, Sunbeam also offers top-notch hair dryer options for the guest bath. Its Folding Retractable Handheld Hair Dryer  is compact, powerful and retractable. At 1875 watts, it comes with a concentrator and offers three heat and speed settings, a cool-shot button for styling, and a three-year limited warranty.

Then there’s the Sunbeam 1875W Folding Handheld Hair Dryer, which provides styling power with two heat and speed options and a cool-shot button. Its compact design with folding handle includes a convenient six-foot power cord.

It’s true. In just 20 minutes, the number of microbes on a surface can double. That’s why it’s important to have a coordinated and consistent plan of attack.

Traditional sanitization and disinfection products may clean and/or disinfect, but they don’t necessarily keep working after initial contact. This leaves surfaces vulnerable to re-contamination in a matter of seconds after the application is applied.

Well, P&G Professional has taken action to deliver a powerful solution. By partnering with Microban®– the global leader in antimicrobial, odor control, and surface modification technologies – P&G has introduced three new sanitization/disinfection products to address the re-contamination of surfaces.

P&G Professional believes that investing in a cleaning and sanitization program is a pillar of delivering a great guest experience. It partners with professionals who aim to make every experience count.

Microban 24-hour sanitizers deliver new benefits that include:

  • After the product is initially sprayed, has needed contact time, and is wiped away, a residual semi-permanent polymer is left behind to protect the surface from 99.9% of organisms.
  • Microban technology works long beyond the initial contact – it protects the surface from organism growth for up to 24 hours.  In fact, it is the ONLY professional use product that can make this claim.

What makes Microban apart from traditional disinfectants?

Microban 24 provides continuous antibacterial sanitizing for up to 24 hours. It is the ONLY product for professional use that makes this claim!

Available now

The new Microban® ready-to-use lineup consists of three items to clean, disinfect/sanitize, and deodorize:

All three products have a light citrus scent and sanitize in as little as 10 seconds, killing 99.9% of organisms and keeping surfaces sanitized between cleanings for up to 24 hours.

With Microban, you have the ability to clean, disinfect, and protect against key organisms. Please click here for more information on task areas and usage.

Spring is here – have you checked the condition of your guest room ironing board covers and pads? If not, it’s time to add this to your spring and seasonal cleaning checklists.

Since guests use ironing boards for more than just ironing – as an extra table, working or eating space – it’s not surprising to find dirt, spills and food residue on them, in addition to the general wear and tear that comes from being used in a busy hospitality environment. Let’s face it – guests want to look their best, and they don’t want to put their clean clothes on a dirty cover.

We recommend changing ironing board covers every three months or seasonally to provide the most positive guest room experience.

Registry® replacement covers offer value and quality

Look to Registry, our personal brand, for replacement covers and pads to suit your property needs. Available in a wide variety of styles and colors, each features:

  • One-piece construction that’s scorch- and stain-resistant
  • Durable fiber padding
  • A smooth, snug fit with choice of drawcord or elastic binding

Shop all Registry replacement covers now and save thru April 1.

With increasing competition, rising labor costs and pressure on capital expenditures, hotels are expected to provide a better guest experience with the same or fewer resources. And, as expectations rise, guests are looking toward the experience of others to help inform their choice of where to stay – in fact, 77.9% of consumers think online reviews are extremely or very important for deciding where to stay.1

On a more granular level, a recent survey of hotel decision makers revealed cleanliness was rated higher than any other factor likely to influence guest experience. 2 One way to meet your guests’ expectations of cleanliness, despite all of the labor and cost pressures, is by increasing the productivity of your core cleaning tasks – starting with vacuuming.

Cut the cord and clean 5x faster

Your team can clean up to five times faster with the Hoover Commercial HUSHTONE Cordless Upright.3 Unlike traditional corded uprights, the HUSHTONE Cordless Upright powered by M-PWR 40V technology helps increase productivity while minimizing risk of exposed cords, which is especially important considering falls, slips, and trips accounted for 32% of non-fatal workplace injuries involving days away from work in hotels.4

When you consider that 57% of hotel executives surveyed noticed a decrease in bookings after a negative online guest review,2 it’s vital that every property put its best face forward. With its cordless collection, Hoover offers you a solution designed to discreetly enhance the way you clean – and, in turn, improve the way your property presents to others.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), asthma affects more than 24 million people in the U.S., including more than 6 million children. In fact, allergies are the sixth leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S., and more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each year. Common allergens include dust mites, pollen, pets/pet dander, mold and smoke.

A higher standard

Keeping these numbers in mind, smart hotel owners must do everything they can to minimize exposure to allergens and keep sensitive guests safe. Sanitaire’s certified asthma & allergy friendly EON ALLERGEN Upright Vacuum can help. Such a certification standard is targeted to vacuum cleaners that are scientifically proven to reduce exposure to asthma and allergy triggers. The certification standard utilizes an algorithm of proprietary and recognized scientific techniques to assess vacuum cleaners for their ability to reduce allergenic and irritant materials. To receive the certification, products must pass rigorous lab tests proving they help reduce exposure to allergens and irritants.

Peace of mind for you and your guests

By attaining this certification, Sanitaire offers a smart choice for your property, with the same low cost of ownership as the EON QuietClean®. Not only is the EON ALLERGEN AAFA certified with a sealed HEPA system, it also delivers an exceptional clean like the EON QuietClean. Both have earned the CRI Gold Seal of Approval, the highest level of certification, and they are LEED qualified at just 68 dBA for 24/7 do not disturb performance.

Create a healthier environment with the Sanitaire EON ALLERGEN Upright Vacuum.

You know hotel housekeeping can be quite a challenge. You also know care and consistency around housekeeping is what builds a property’s reputation in the eyes of guests. When housekeeping gets overlooked, hotels typically feel a bottom-line impact. Like any other operational task that’s vital to the everyday success of a business, effective housekeeping demands proper planning and the right equipment.

From maintaining the pristine appearance of guest rooms to making sure pool and exercise areas have an endless supply of towels, every housekeeping team should be guided by a clear strategy. One industry expert emphasizes the importance of ongoing training. “Housekeeping is really all about the basics and really knowing those basics well,” said Rick Takach, CEO and chairman of hotel management company Vesta Hospitality. “As long as your team is very well-trained, that’s your best way to make sure things are running smoothly and you’re getting your rooms done as quick as possible.”

Just as important are the tools of the trade. For more than three decades, Royal Basket Trucks has produced carts, trucks, and containers that support the critical work of housekeeping. Today, Royal Basket offers a full line of products for collecting, sorting, and transporting in a variety of environments.

To experience the difference of Royal Basket, choose from a variety of colors, sizes, and divided sections for optimal organization and increased efficiency. Royal Basket also offers non-marking casters to spare specialty floors from damage. Every cart is built to order, made in Wisconsin, and ships on a short timeline.
