What is the key to a hotel’s success? Excellent hotel management.

The location, decor and luxury level of a property are factors in success, for example, but surprisingly they aren’t the decisive factors.

Not everyone can afford a perfectly located, luxury hotel. Not all guests pay strict attention to the decor and design of a hotel.

But everyone pays attention to how smooth and welcoming their experience was. Everybody remembers how they were treated. People won’t forget the general feel of a hotel.

Those are all aspects of hotel management.

Both categories are useful and can be applied in different settings.

Investing money up front, perhaps in some sort of product that can be sold, is also an excellent source of income for a hotel.

We’ve compiled a quick list of some often overlooked revenue ideas for hotels from both categories. Ways to save revenue (thus increasing it over time), or to immediately increase revenue.

The hospitality industry is an industry consistently at the forefront of the trends, and since the latest green practices tend to become “trendy,” hotels must try and be ahead of the trends, set the trends, and at the very least – follow them.

The green practices of five years ago are commonplace now – i.e. the friendly card in the bathroom explaining the option to reuse towels. If that’s the sort of green level your hotel is on, there may be some work to do.
