Furniture: your choice should not be a matter of chance

Making your hotel even more attractive requires creative thinking to find the right furniture that will combine comfort, quality and aesthetics while adapting to the story telling of your hotel. Furniture is the best tool to improve the image of your hotel. Find in this article, some advices to choose it well.

The decoration, an element that confirms your identity

Defining the style of a hotel is the object of a long reflection preceded by the drawing of inspiration. Indeed, inspiration can come from anywhere, at any time, and in any circumstances. So don’t hesitate to check out the most fashionable establishments. Also, visit trade shows that focus on the latest furnishing trends. An easy way to spot trends is to look at Pinterest.

Every detail is important! You can consider matching your furniture to the major theme of your hotel: classic, traditional, romantic… Play with materials, shapes and colors to create your own atmosphere.

Your entrance sets the tone for everything that follows, so don’t neglect it. Set the tone of your interior directly with your exterior design choices.

Less is more: embrace the minimalist spirit

The minimalist style reached its peak in the 1960s. A trend in aesthetics and interior design that aims to reduce materials to a minimum. To bring this minimalist touch to your hotel, avoid flashy colors and opt for neutral tones such as gray, beige, white or midnight blue.

In addition, your real estate should be uncluttered and discreet. Minimalism is above all a style that blends objects with their surroundings. Avoid all heaviness and extravagance and leave room for discretion in your storage.

Concerning your materials, prefer raw materials such as glass or lacquered wood. However you can add more character by playing with textures.

Confort and biofeeling

Beyond aesthetics, your furniture must contain a form of comfort, ease of maintenance, and practicality… To be avoided: a too imposing furniture in restricted spaces; your decoration must not slow down your staff in its movement.

Think of arranging your café and restaurant in a cosy way, so that customers can relax and take time for themselves.

Biofeeling is a movement that believes that shapes and environments have a direct impact on emotions. So, to keep your guests calm and collected, design rooms with geometrically defined lines, soft chairs, and a warm atmosphere.

What about you? Where do you get your inspiration to furnish your home? Do you do it yourself or do you call a professional?

The impact of artificial intelligence on customer service

AI is the set of computer systems capable of performing tasks that usually require human intelligence, such as visual perception, voice recognition and translation. According to a 2017 McKinsey Global Institute report, in the hospitality industry, 50% of tasks will be automated by 2055. Digital is therefore increasingly present, allowing hoteliers to better know their customers and target what is important to them.

A marketing


In order to personalize and improve interactions with their customers, several companies have opted for this type of marketing.

Indeed, following the phenomenon of “machine learning”, the collection and processing of data are evolving according to the evolution of algorithms and applications in the digital tourism sector.

Thus, content personalization and specific recommendations are proposed.



Several services will be modernized and become faster and more efficient thanks to AI. Indeed, personalized recommendations for activities near their hotel will be made based on the traveler’s ID, virtual reality already allows for an immersive tour of the hotel. Moreover, no need to waste time changing prices, pricing will be adjusted in real time. Finally, applications facilitating social interaction within the hotel as well as robotic room service will soon be available.

Check-in, Check-out

and E-Welcome

Generating more profit to deliver a better experience to customers, E-Welcome allows to anticipate the reception of the customer and to propose internal or external services. This creates a privileged relationship between the hotel and its prospects.

The E-welcome is also present through the digitalization of the welcome booklet. Thus, by creating your StyQR digital welcome booklet, a QR code will be delivered to you, your customers will be able to scan it, and then access all the information necessary for their stay (wifi code, digicodes, good address…)

In addition, tasks such as check-in are being digitized. Applications are being developed for facial recognition to simplify hotel check-in. Finally, the smartphone makes customer relations much easier, as it can be used as a variant of a payment method or even as an electronic key.

Indeed, more than 80% of hotel staff find that robots help them in their work and allow them to be more efficient. At the Hilton McLean, in Virginia, there is Connie, a robot concierge who interacts with customers.

An initiative that could delegate tasks such as reception or carrying suitcases… to machines.
