30 Times The Creativity Of These Hotels Blew Visitors’ Mind

If you stay at hotels often, you know that most of them seem to offer the same old thing – a mildly friendly reception, a decent bed, and a warm shower. Today, however, we’d like to focus on a few of the best hotels that decided to up their game and take customer service to the next level.

Some of the most imaginative hotels (in terms of design and amenities) are being developed around the world. From underwater hotels to treetop hideaways, new properties are pushing the boundaries of what a typical hotel experience should feel like.

Check the list we’ve compiled of amazingly innovative hotel designs and services below, and if you’ve stayed in one just as filled with creative ideas recently, add your photos at the end!

#1 This Hotels Pet Policy

No matter how much hotels innovate, there are still some “basic” requirements that all properties should meet to make their experiences both welcoming and comforting to guests.

The travel industry is dominated by customer service, and hotel businesses live and die by the satisfaction of their guests. As customer demands grow, so does the complexity of delivering an experience they’ll be happy with.

Much is discussed in regards to guest experience in today’s travel world, but often the guest experience and hotelier experience are inextricably linked. Both inspire and feed each other through demand, expectation, and satisfaction. In contemporary society, hotels are facing complex distribution, pricing, and guest contentment challenges – and that’s before COVID-19 hit!

It seems them fighting to balance their own business needs with the increasing and dynamic nature of travel technology, and the savvy, resourceful attitudes of travellers. As a result, hotels need to be led by traveller behaviour. The majority rules. Early adopters are typically well-educated, have high incomes, and are willing to take risks. Hotels are realising they need to be in many places at once, with constant visibility being a cornerstone of booking success.

When it comes to pleasing guests, ‘personalisation’ is as buzzed as a word can get, but for good reason; there’s no excuse not to be taking a more focused approach to customer interaction. However, optimising the guest experience and ensuring guest expectations are met is a constantly evolving challenge for hoteliers. With a veritable banquet of options at their fingertips, travellers are demanding more than ever before. It makes life harder for hotels, but also gives them a greater opportunity to deliver an experience guests will never forget.

Did you know that improving their customer service could collectively save U.S. companies $62 billion annually? The best hotels know that good hotel customer service is ideal for increasing revenue, but it’s also very helpful for brand development and customer retention.

But what does “the best customer service experience in a hotel” really mean?

33% of Americans say they’ll consider switching companies after just a single instance of poor customer service. And while the definition of excellent customer service varies by industry, the best customer service hotel can be defined by the following characteristics:

  • Detail. True attention to detail can’t be found in a manual. It can, however, be inspired by great working conditions and a genuine desire to help people.
  • Personalization. Birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions are great opportunities to personalize a guest’s experience. But there are plenty of ways to customize their visit every day, you just have to look for them.
  • Creativity. Customers have expectations for what most hotels will and won’t do. Identify them. Then make it a habit to go above and beyond in interesting and delightful ways.

What can you learn from some examples of hotels with the best customer service?

1. Holiday Emerald Hotel

Location: Hanoi, Vietnam

Best Hotel Customer Service Tip: Hire the right personalities.

Guests of the Holiday Emerald are amazed at how genuinely kind their staff is. From thoughtful greetings upon entering the lobby to personally following up on special requests like restaurant recommendations, the staff at Holiday Emerald feel more like friends than employees.

2. Lani’s Suites Deluxe

Location: Puerto Del Carmen, Spain

Best Hotel Customer Service Tip: Surprise your guests with presents and appreciation.

For example, when recent guests of Lani’s were overheard discussing their upcoming anniversary as hotel patrons (their 100th night in a Lani brand hotel), the staff at the hotel came through big time. They put balloons, champagne, chocolates, and presents in their room on the day. And the owner comped their dinner at the hotel restaurant. This extreme act of appreciation made their guests feel valued and has surely solidified their status as customers for life.

3. Pax Guest House

Location: Dingle, Ireland

Best Hotel Customer Service Tip: Go out of your way.

The customers at Pax rave about the delicious breakfast almost as much as the customer service. A couple past guests mentioned how the hotel went out of its way to provide a shuttle ride to the bus station just for them. And another gushed about the host, John, personally delivering their morning chocolates and Irish Creme. These little touches and extras will always be noticed and appreciated by your guests!

#14 The Room Numbers At My Hotel Are Shadows

There’s no doubting that COVID-19 has changed customer service forever. The way that hospitality businesses operate and deliver experiences will undergo a raft of edits and adaptations to form a new normal in the long term. But changes have to happen now, and quickly. Failure will result in a business that isn’t operating at all.

On top of complying to any government and industry instated requirements, hotels will need to look closely at what travellers might be coming to their area, what they’re looking for, and what services can be provided to them.

Take into account:

  • Flexible booking policies
  • Cleanliness and hygiene
  • Shared spaces (lobby, bar, restaurant, pool etc)
  • Contactless check-in, room entry, room service etc
  • Wellness services and amenities
  • Surge in adventure/active holidays
  • Local health facilities

Travel Syndrome- Expectations Vs Reality of Vacation Destinations

It happens a lot when we see a picture of a certain place as a tourist we get to look at the best pictures. But soon as we go there the expectations tend to disappoint us. Crowded places, trashes everywhere, overall not the enjoyable experience we wish to have.
However, The syndrome of romanticizing places has come due to a very range of marketing of tourism. We tend to go to the places we find super romantic so we can be fulfilled and content with our trip.
Rather than that this also shows how misleading photography can be. A lot of people may be left disappointed when they meet the harsh reality of these places.

For example, everyone I bet would be expecting a very nice to the heart of the ancient trip to Egypt but instead, they would be waiting in long lines with very hot sunny weather above their head. Or visiting the great wall of china, a moment of wandering meditation up to grandeur wall but in reality, you have to squeeze to pass through all those people.”

But hey! Don’t be hopeless sometimes these places can be less crowded and stiff if you look at the “flux map” during the seasons. Is better to target the times when fewer tourist may visit the certain place.
And always be prepared for some letdown just in case your expectations were too high. Otherwise, just try to enjoy the best out of a place.
