As the Christmas season approaches, hotel and spa managers are busy planning an exceptional experience for their guests
A warm welcome endures when guests discover those special items which become talking points during their stay and are photographed to be shared on social media, reviews and with family and friends. The Christmas season may be short but happy memories and a wish to return last much longer.
When it comes to a sentimental treasure guests can take home with them, a bathrobe elegantly embroidered with both their name and the hotel logo is hard to beat. Luxury textiles specialists BC SoftWear has introduced an offering that’s set to make holiday services unforgettable: personalised, embroidered bathrobes. The embroidered bathrobe signifies an emblem of your brand’s commitment to excellence, creating a lasting impression that resonates far beyond their stay. This bespoke service also offers a practical edge, making it more than a lavish gesture. By providing guests with these take-home bathrobes, hotels effectively streamline their operations by easing the laundry burden during the busiest weeks of the year. In turn, this allows housekeeping to prioritise other festive touches that matter.
Young guests can also enjoy their own mini embroidered robes, making them feel every bit as special as the adults. It’s little details like this that etch your establishment into family memories. The simple joy of wearing a robe designed just for them can make a Christmas stay memorable and encourage guests to make your hotel a regular part of their celebrations. While the allure of personalised robes is undeniable, timing is essential. Given the bespoke nature of this service, BC SoftWear advise hotels aiming to enchant their guests with this special touch to place their orders several weeks in advance.
