It’s that time of year when family and friends come visit and stay for a few nights. Make sure they feel right at home by providing some five-star amenities right in their guest room. Watch the video above and use these tips to create your own luxury guest room.
- Create a toiletries basket
Do you have a hotel toiletry sample collection? Perfect. Now just grab a basket and add a shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, razor, toothpaste, mouthwash, q-tips, and cotton balls.
- Have towels handy
Make sure clean bath, wash cloths and hand towels are within easy reach in the bathroom.
- Keep it comfy
Cover the guest bed with clean, quality linens. Also, have extra pillows and blankets in a closet or in a basket.
- Share your WiFi password
Print out or neatly handwrite a note with the WiFi username and password.
- Add a coffee bar
Place a serving tray on a dresser, then add a 4-cup coffee maker, coffee filter, coffee, two cups, cream, sugar and stirrers.
- Easy plugin access
Add a power strip by the bed for an easy, visible place to plug in all their devices.
- Create a welcome basket
Prevent “hangry” or bored guests by placing a basket by the bed and adding single-serve snacks, water bottles, hard candy, paper, a pen and magazines.
- Have hooks available
Add a couple hooks to the back of a door or wall for towels or coats.
- Offer a robe
Have a clean white robe hanging in the closet with a note. This is the most expensive tip, but a very thoughtful gesture.
- Hang a mirror
This is especially important if guests don’t have their own bath. A full length mirror is best, but you could also just hang a decorative framed mirror above a dresser.
