A few years ago, I was at a conference for innkeepers, camped out at my booth showing some of InnStyle’s products.
A colleague of mine – a former innkeeper who had become an industry consultant – stopped by the booth to ask if I could give her some pillow samples to show during her seminar.
Of course I was happy to oblige, and to act as a sort of teacher to a few of her aspiring innkeeper “students” who wanted to learn about our pillows and other products.
It was a pleasure to meet these upcoming innkeepers, allow them to try out our products – by touching and even laying on the pillows – and to explain some of the choices they had when it came to buying new pillows.
And I learned something as well that day at the conference: My former innkeeper colleague suggested I create a pillow menu for our website.
This was a trend already at work in the hotel industry, although it hadn’t yet reached bed and breakfasts. We saw the pillow menu as another benefit to guests, just like amenities such as fabulous breakfasts, concierge service and cocktail hours.
After all, if there’s one thing all guests want, it’s a good night’s sleep. And a big part of getting a good rest is having the right pillow. And as Kris Connell of Real Simple magazine puts it: “It’s more than just comfort, it’s also part of your general health.”
With our pillow menu, you’ll find a range of options to ensure your guests will have a peaceful sleeping experience no matter their needs.
You can choose from soft, medium, firm and foam pillows, as well as specially shaped pillows to help with side support. Our full-length body pillows are designed to help everyone from those suffering from joint pain, patients recovering from surgery to expectant mothers. There’s even a sleep wedge designed to help guests who suffer from acid reflux.
We also carry a Memory Foam four-in-one pillow that supports the head, neck, knees and back.
A pillow menu helps innkeepers who want to give their guests a wide variety of pillow choices before they check in, which in turn helps the innkeepers recognize which pillows to purchase.
With a pillow menu, you can give your guests all the comforts of home and more! Their choice of pillow can be waiting for them when they arrive at your inn. And if they really like the pillow they used, you can offer them the chance to purchase the same model from InnStyle. We’ll ship it directly to them.
