CytexOne Hospitality Solutions Make Hotels Smarter and More Eco-Friendly
The sharing economy has transformed the way we move around a city, accomplish household chores, and where we stay when we’re away from home, thanks to services like Uber, TaskRabbit, and Airbnb. Since its founding in 2008, Airbnb has severed over 30 million guests and its valuation, while privately held, exceeds that of hotel chains like Hyatt. According to HVS Consulting & Valuation, hotels lose an estimated $450 million in direct revenue each year to Airbnb. Hotel chains are taking notice and investing significant resources in order to deliver a consistent experience, something Airbnb can’t quite promise. Upgrading technology, in particular hotel shading control, will transform the way guests see your New York City property. Read on to learn more about CytexOne’s recommendations for creating a distinctive guest experience.
Maximize Guest Comfort with Shading Control
From check-in until check-out, hoteliers have many opportunities to create unique lighting scenes throughout various spaces that offer beauty, comfort, and a more personalized experience for each guest. Does your lobby, the face of your hotel, always make a great first impression? By integrating the shades and the lighting, hotel staff can easily adjust and monitor both in order to create a more welcoming ambiance, cut down on sun glare, and provide guests a more eco-friendly stay by harvesting natural light.
Shading control within guest rooms and suites offer hoteliers the biggest opportunity to set their hotel apart from the pack and provide a one-of-a-kind stay that travelers will be talking long after they arrive home. Automated control of a room’s drapes offers guests privacy while preserving the view from the penthouse suite. Additionally, by integrating the HVAC system, lights, and shades you provide increased comfort while reducing energy use. Impress even the most seasoned of travelers by giving them the ability to control nearly any aspect of the room with a single touch using a tablet, keypad, or remote. No more wake-up calls will be needed. Each room can be set to respond to guest preferences by turning on lights, opening shades, and playing music at a specific time.
Effortless Access to Amenities
With guest comfortably settled in their rooms, it’s time to revamp the way you provide them with information related to hotel services. Because the offered amenities often change, it’s important that hotel staff have a seamless way to keep guests up-to-date. By using HD displays, staff can easily promote special offers using appealing visuals. Guests can interact with a touch screen and summon hotel staff who can assist in fulfilling their every need. Additionally, in-room touch screens enable self-service, allowing guests to order room service, book a spa appointment, or schedule tee times.
