Top Hospitality Trends for the Year

The top hospitality trends for the year 2007 ……………….

Spa Facilities
The hottest trend going in hotels is the spa, the more luxurious the spa the happier the guest. Be it guests staying just the night, or for meeting, or just for the weekend, they all want to hit the spa, even if only for an hour at the end of the day.

Big Spender’s Big Demands
Luxury is back, guests are demanding luxury, first-class amenities and added value in return for their money. Flat screen televisions, luxurious bath soaps, superior bed and bath linens, spa service, expectations are at their peek.

Breakfast is Back
The breakfast is fast regaining its popularity. Comfort food, eggs cooked to order, and healthy options with low in fat and high in protein and nutrition. French toast and waffles are a growing trend. New takes on breakfast basics, such as the Lemon Soufflé Pancakes, are becoming more and more popular
Quiet, please. This is said to be a very dominant factor when selecting a hotel or resort. There is a partiality for quiet or soundproofed rooms, along with noise reduction windows and walls.

Leisure Travel to Grow
Leisure Travel is expected to grow despite economic challenges in year ahead. Short getaways of four nights or less remain the most popular vacations and represent over half of all vacations taken by leisure travelers.

The Business Traveler
The newest traveler and spender on the block is the business traveler. With the economy on the rise and big salaries the economical business traveler has started spending big for amenities like individual service, great restaurants and bars, luxurious spas and specialization in g high-end conferences.

Big Corporate Spending
Going on advance bookings for corporate conferences from 20% to 50% over the start of the year, spending on company meetings is definitely on the rise Corporations are spending more and more to gather people together to launch, strengthen and accelerate initiatives. They are also providing their staff and customers full service hospitality environments for work and leisure

Competition Clause
The "Competition clause" is now demanded more often in contracts, precluding the presence of competitors anywhere on the hotel property while a company's executives are present. As competition within industries is fierce and industrial espionage is a big concern.

WiFi
WiFiis no longer a luxury or a convenience, it is now apparently as a necessity, it is not only expected, but is supposed to be free of charge. It’s expected that a guest can log on and access email or the office from anywhere in the hotel.

Online BookingThis is a major trend, the majority 66% of travelers go solely to the Internet when planning a future vacation, while 57% report making reservations online.

Designer Website
Your website will be the first thing the guest will see, as mentioned that the majority of travelers go to the Internet to look and book the hotel. So be sure that it has both quality and is has online booking facilities.

Conclusion

It seems that high end spending by both the public and corporate is back with a vengeance. Hotels and resorts that emphasize individual service, great restaurants and bars, high quality amenities, luxurious spas and settings and accommodations and specialization in accommodating high-end conferences are the demand of the day.
