Encouraging great guest reviews is critical for everyone in the hospitality industry – providing a quality bathrobe can make the difference.
No matter the time of year, bathrobes can add tremendous value. As an innkeeper, a good-quality and comfortable bathrobe can have a lasting, memorable impact on your guests. Wouldn’t it be desirable to hear your guests give a glowing review on how soft and plush the bathrobes felt while they were wearing them around the bedroom, pool, or spa? When determining the proper bathrobe to best fit your needs, there are some common factors that may help you decide what is best.
Benefits of Having a Bathrobe
Bathrobes help to keep people warm after finishing a bath or shower whether it is in a hotel, spa, or airbnb. Many bathrobes are made of cotton which may come in a terry cloth or waffle weave. The cotton is known for absorbing water well. Bathrobes can also keep guests from getting cold when walking around the inn especially if it is during the morning or evening.
Instead of having guests get chilly while preparing for their day in the morning, they can wear one of the bathrobes to help get started. They can also wear them when socializing around the pool or spa. Robes work well in areas that are steamy or misty because they absorb well. This way, a customer can enjoy a nice, relaxing day and not have to worry about feeling like they are in damp clothing. With that in mind, a good quality robe can be the difference between a good and great experience for your guests.
Types of Bathrobes
Terry Robe– Highly absorbent. It is the loops, or pile, which enlarge the surface area of the robe and increase the absorbency to give it more softness.
Velour Robe– Absorbent and stretchy. These are usually made out of cotton or polyester. They are designed to make ordinary robes feel more luxurious.
Waffle Robe– Absorbent and light. It has a checkered design, and it’s reputation as a lightweight robe makes it a popular choice for spas and pools. It works well in warm climates.
Shawl Collar- Wide collar that typically extends from the neckline and past the chest usually until it meets near the waist.
Kimono– Robe with wide sleeves that doesn’t have a collar.
Hooded- Hood sewn towards the top of the robe to help provide warmth and protection from wet conditions like steam or mist.
