Sweden, Malmo, Malmo. April 02, 2020

Bookboost stands with the hospitality industry to provide the assistance it can at this time making its Web Messenger and Unified Inbox available for free.

Hotels have and continue to take great pressure in guest communication with staff managing a huge number of guest enquiries relating to bookings, cancellations, postponements, local travel restrictions and what the property is doing in response to Covid-19, especially for current guests.

Bookboost knows this will continue for a few more months as guests seek clarification and confidence in their bookings, and hotels look for demand to return.

Hotels can use Bookboost to provide relevant up-to-date information on their website to answer frequently asked questions automatically and through Facebook and email using automated responses and preset answers. As well as have use of the single inbox to ensure ongoing customer service at this difficult time - it includes an automated website chatbot and dashboard to access and respond to all messages.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
