What do your guestroom linens say about your hotel? Clean, high-quality sheets, pillows and covers contribute to a guest’s comfort and satisfaction, making hotel supply movement a priority for your housekeeping staff.
Choosing hotel linens involves different considerations than furnishing a bed in a private home. Here are tips to select hotel bedding that enhances the guests’ experience and brings them back in the future.
Best Fabrics for Hotel Sheets
While trendy materials such as bamboo may come and go, cotton is still the gold standard for luxury bedding. Cotton is soft and cool but durable and easy to care for. Pure cotton is preferable, but properties with limited ironing facilities may opt for a polyester-cotton blend that is more wrinkle-resistant.
Lyocell fiber regenerated from wood cellulose, marketed under the brand name Tencel, has become another popular fabric in the hospitality industry. Tencel reduces bacteria build-up and eliminates dust mites so it’s a great choice where allergies might be a problem.
White or Colors?
White’s pristine appearance has made it the classic choice for hotels, where the perception of cleanliness can make or break reputations. Some hotels have been using bed scarves and matching pillow covers to add pops of accent color.
More recently, hotels have been integrating color into duvet covers, which also helps prevent stains. In addition, properties sometimes run into a chronic problem of bedscarves “disappearing,” a situation that’s less likely to occur with duvet covers.
