No one would want to be associated with anything filthy. Clean facilities and surroundings definitely score high on people’s discriminating tastes. Especially if you are a traveler, you probably have billeted in hotels that aren’t regularly cleaned. A tip: for outdoor furniture that are not in use, it would be good to use furniture cover to secure them. Much like you would use a golf cart cover to secure a golf cart when not in use.
Home away from home
People, particularly the traveling kind, want a place where they can feel at home. They may be constantly looking for different environments and enjoying it, but the feel of laying their backs on a place they can label home come night time surely adds to the feel. A good hotel should make a foreigner feel safe and comfortable all the time.
Part of this “home away from home” mantra are staff that always have a ready smile and welcoming attitude. Great are the staff that are warm and accommodating and are always willing to help a person for whatever his economic stature is.
