When you think of famous hotels names such as Hotel Ritz, Waldorf Astoria and worlds tallest hotel the Burj al Arab in Dubai spring to mind. But what makes a hotel famous and more than that, what makes a hotel successful?
Just some of the main reasons why a particular hotel becomes famous could be due to its location and its design. This is particularly evident with newer hotels like the Burj al Arab in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Whilst the name of the hotel fremantle might not be instantly recognizable the fact that the hotel is built on an artificial island and is shaped like a giant boats sail makes it arguably the worlds most distinctive looking hotel. And being 321 metres high certainly adds to its world famous status.
And therefore size could well be important if the MGM Grand in Las Vegas is anything to go by. With in excess of 6000 rooms it goes to show that good things don’t just come in small packages.
So if location, location, location really is vital and size really does count then another reason why a hotel becomes world famous could well be because of its historic value. In fact, who had heard of the Watergate complex in Washington DC until events of 1967 and the subsequent political scandal involving Richard Nixon?
The truth is hotels and successful businesses of all types often share one similar trait and this is they are great at communication. For hotels this is particularly important has the running of a hotel is an extremely time consuming and difficult job. Hotel communication is therefore vital to ensure hotel staff, suppliers and visitors are kept secure and safe in a clean and friendly environment.
Hotel health and safety and hotel communication has been made easier in recent years through the use of modern 2 way radio and hotel radios available from leading manufacturers like HYT, Motorola and Kenwood mean that hotel safety and hotel communications is quicker and easier than ever before.
Successful hotels are successful because people use them time and time again and recommend them to others. Successful hotels do this because their staff and suppliers almost blend into the background of a hotel leaving their visitors to enjoy their facilities and surroundings in peace of quiet.
From chambermaids and bell boys, hotel radios are a great way for staff throughout a hotel to stay in touch over a wide area and with no call charges. Hotel communication also benefits kitchen staff, waiters and waitresses as well as receptionists, maintenance staff and indeed anyone working in the hotel or complex.
In a time when businesses throughout the world are struggling, trying to gain a competitive advantage is vital and for hotels, getting their hotel communications right allows them to do this.
Not all hotels can be as famous as the taj mahal but all hotels can improve their hotel safety and hotel communication for less money than they may think.
