Signs Increase Hotel Front Desk Efficiency

February 21, 2019 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

A hotel’s front desk team is often the first point of contact with guests and can make a lasting impression upon them. One of their main job duties is to pass along information as well as check guests in and out. But there are some things that don’t always fit into a “welcome to our hotel, we hope you enjoy your stay” conversation. That’s where hotel signs can play a vital role in a hotels efficiency and also make for a more pleasant stay for guests.

Hotel signage helps guests navigate their new surroundings on their own and can pass along important messages. This can help mitigate repetitive questions and allow the front desk to focus on making each guests’ visit more memorable.

Just about every hotel requires a variety of signs to suit many different purposes. Signs can be used to make guests feel at home, well-informed and even safe. Signs can be used to convey many messages, general warnings or information. Signs help hotels conform to regulations as well as fulfill obligations. And, importantly, signs are an efficient way to convey information without having to say it every time a new guest visits your hotel.

“Many of our clients call asking for input on signage” said Mark Zisek, Front Desk Supply’s Director of Commercial Operations. He continued, “You’d be surprised how important a Do Not Disturb, Conserve Water or Restaurant table toppers can be. Hotels rely upon these signs to communicate with guests and for guests to communicate with them. Guests who checked late in after a long travel day certainly appreciate the ability to put a Do Not Disturb sign on the door and catch up with much needed rest.”
This month’s special will help keep your guests and staff informed: Front Desk Supply is offering $35 off any new sign you order (or $10 off a generic Do Not Disturb Sign order). Signs can be standing, hanging or folded. They offer a variety of signs, including:

  •     Do Not Disturb
  •     Conserve Water (towels, linens, etc)
  •     Room Service menus that hang on door.
  •     Table toppers

Signs are available in paper or plastic and for a one-time fee can even create your own unique shape. Debating which is best for your hotel? Here’s some advantages of both paper and plastic:

Paper Advantages:

  •     Inexpensive
  •     Basic offering is full color, versus paying for colors with plastic
  •     Good for hanging: room service menus for door, DnD signs
  •     Good for tent signs: on bed – “Enjoy your Stay”
  •     Easy to recycle

Plastic Advantages:

  •     Long lasting
  •     Good for Do not Disturb: hanging
  •     Good for any sign (hanging/tent) in the bathroom due to steam, water, etc.

Zisek continued, “Whether you prefer the sturdiness and longevity of plastic signage for your hotel, or you prefer the cost advantages of paper and being able to print in color for no additional fee, we are able to help you with your specific signage needs. Our experienced customer service team can help you design a sign that fits your needs and helps you communicate vital information to your guests.”

More on Do Not Disturb Signs
Front Desk Supply provides a variety of Privacy, Do Not Disturb signs and “request service” signs. They have Do Not Disturb signs that insert into the door locks (often for magnetic key cards), Do Not Disturb signs that that sit in a vinyl holder attached to the door, as well as Do Not Disturb signs that hang from the door (both magnetic key card and RFID key card use).
