Aura

There is a lot to be said about how a hotel or resort is rated. Perception has it that the higher the rating the nicer the hotel or resort is in terms of luxury and costs. Hotel resort star ratings are generally provided to would-be visitors on a quality scale of 1-5, with 5 being the best. The issue with hotel star ratings is that they can be used as a guideline when choosing or booking one. The real rating comes after these would-be visitors have actually stayed at the hotel or resort as this is where the reality of the stay takes place. How your hotel will be remembered and referenced will be the aura that takes place during their stay and long after when they leave. Hotels Reviews Speak Loud and Clear – In many cases they are the decision makers for those who are looking for a place to stay.

 

Hotel Reviews – The Language of the Guest

So how important are Reviews to the Reputation of the Hotel or Resort? According to Tripadvisor, 93% of the people find reviews very important when determining which Hotel or Resort they want to stay at. 53% of the people surveyed would not book a Hotel without having a guest opinion about it. Hence, user generated content, as reviews or feedback, grew to a major decision factor for customers. So, positive feedback from satisfied guests sharing their experiences with your Hotel or Resort is very precious. Negative reviews – in contrast – should be diminished and used to improve the quality of the Hotel or Resort. For this reason, it is becoming more and more important for you as an hotelier to build up a professional Hotel or Resort Reputation Management that keeps tracking your reputation all over the web. The very success of your Hotel or Resort is dependent on it.

Since the introduction of the web site phenomenon, Hotels and Resorts are mostly viewed and booked on-line from would-be guests from every corner of the world looking, reading and deciding what hotel or resort they wish to stay at.

 

Green and Clean Matters

Being eco-savvy is no longer a trend. It has become a lifestyle, dictating consumer attitudes and spending habits, even decisions when it comes to traveling. According to a recent survey, guest satisfaction is substantially higher among guests who report being aware of their hotel or resort’s green programs and seven out of 10 consumers prefer to patronize a business that demonstrates a commitment to the environment.

With some experts believing that green cleaning will soon take over the market and become the norm, hotel managers must strongly consider implementing eco-friendly maintenance measures. The benefits of green cleaning your hotel—including attracting new guests, increasing guest satisfaction and promoting employee health and safety—are immeasurable.

How Do I Make Sure My Hotel Room is Clean?

Your hotel room is your home away from home, with a few exceptions — hundreds of strangers from every corner of the world have slept there, and the hotel staff may not have the same standards of cleanliness that you do at home. It’s nice to have someone fold up your towels and make your bed while you’re out exploring the world, but in terms of sanitization, a neatly made bed does not equal a germ-free room.

  Guest Room Cleanliness  

Studies have shown that germs frequently lurk in places like light switches, television remotes and telephone keypads, even in hotel rooms that otherwise appear clean — disturbing evidence of what might be waiting when you wheel your suitcase into a suite.

There are no international standards for hotel cleanliness. Price, location or a brand name will not guarantee completely sanitary digs. So until some international “clean commission” starts sending out fastidious officials to size up squalid toilets in hotels around the world, your best bet is to find out what your fellow travelers are saying. Most travel and hotel review sites have cleanliness as a category for evaluation. Our favorite is TripAdvisor, which offers user ratings of thousands of hotels, restaurants and businesses around the world; you can also find hotel reviews on major booking engines such as Travelocity, Hotels.com and Orbitz.

 

Electrolyzed Water – Dubbed “The Miracle Liquid”

It’s a kitchen degreaser. It’s a bathroom disinfectant. It kills the worst pathogens on this planet >99.9% and its one of the best wound care healing agents that minimizes scar tissue. Oh, and you can drink it and it’s made from all natural ingredients.

Do More with No Extra Costs

What makes it so unbelievable is the ability to produce unlimited fresh solution every day with no increase in costs except for a little salt and water costs that passes through the system to make it all happen. The best part is to be able to make it right on-site and on-demand using one of our Envirolyte® Generating Systems for only pennies a gallon. Now that you may think is impressive. Well not so fast … the Envirolyte® Generating Systems not only makes disinfectant (Anolyte) but also makes a great degreaser, sanitizer and Laundry Agent (Catholyte) … now that is impressive!

Sounds too good to be true … well it is true and electrolyzed water is for real. It has received EPA, FDA and Health Canada approvals. And it’s starting to replace the toxic chemicals we have been using at home and in the industry each and every day.

Electrolyzed Water is a simple mixture of table salt (sodium chloride) and tap water whose ions have been scrambled with an electric current. Used as a sanitizer for decades in Russia and Japan, it’s slowly winning acceptance in North America. A New York poultry processor uses it to kill salmonella on chicken carcasses. A Minnesota grocery clerks sprays sticky conveyors in the checkout lanes. In Michigan, jailers mop with electrolyzed water to keep potentially lethal cleaners out of the hands of inmates. In London Ontario, Canada, London Canada Green Taxi has stickered every one of their cabs both inside and out with our EnviroNize windows stickers letting their patrons know that their cabs have been ENVIRONIZED!

 

Electrolyzed Water – Enters the Hospitality Industry

Electrolyzed Water has now entered the hospitality industry and for a good many reasons but don’t take our word for it. Listen to what others have to say since they have installed this system which makes this “miracle liquid” called electrolyzed water;

In Santa Monica, the once-skeptical Sheraton housekeeping staff has ditched skin-chapping bleach and pungent ammonia for spray bottles filled with electrolyzed water to clean toilets and sinks.

“I didn’t believe in it at first because it didn’t have foam or any scent,” said housekeeper Flor Corona. “But I can tell you it works. My rooms are clean.”

Management likes it too. The mixture costs just pennies a gallon. It cuts down on employee injuries from chemicals. It reduces shipping costs and waste because hotel staffers prepare the solution on site. And it’s helping tout its environmental credentials to hotel guests.  

Awareness

Promote your green cleaning practices—Awareness of green programs has a strong impact on overall hotel guest satisfaction. According to a report from J.D. Powers and Associates, satisfaction is significantly higher among guests who report being aware of their hotel’s green programs compared with guests who are unaware of them. Make sure your green programs are clearly featured on your website, in signage throughout the hotel and guestrooms, at the front desk, and in subscriber e-mails or mailers.

Disinfection and Sanitation

Diseases and infections have always been a major concern to the every industry and the hospitality industry being the most vulnerable as it provides accommodations for thousands of people from all over the world. Every day guests arrive, many from other countries where known health concerns exist. Their luggage is checked, unpacked without any thought of what they may be carrying in terms on harmful infectious pathogens of which your hotel could become the next breeding ground.

Like Hospitals that have seen their fair share recently of being in the public eye with negative publicity as a result of breakouts of c. difficile and MRSA, Hotels and Resorts are not exempt from being plagued by similar infectious pathogens.

 

Proactive Protection of Pathogens™

Fortunately, microbial contamination can be prevented and controlled using proper management practices and modern health products. Envirolyte® technology offers a comprehensive eco-friendly and cost effective program that starts with eliminating the use of chemicals and continues through the hotel providing disinfecting anolyte solutions for the housekeeping staff to clean and disinfect rooms, elevators, and all places in between, the kitchen, the restaurant and ending at the pool and spa.

The catholyte solution which is made from the system as well will be a welcome addition to the laundry department of the hotel replacing any laundry phosphates being used with a chemical free detergent solution. The final words will be left up to the hotels marketing department to bring awareness to their guests and to the management through our Green Room Certified Program to bolster their reasons why an electrolyzed water system makes sense and was a great investment! Providing a clean and germ free environment is a prerequisite for good health and customer relations as the hotel or resorts reputation is dependent on how their guests rate their stay when they leave!
