CURATED HOTEL SUPPLIES - VACATION RENTAL TESTED - 🇺🇸 USA STORE

We Asked The Experts

 

We asked a number of hotel managers. What is it you look for while buying linens? 
Overwhelming response was:

 

 

Must have clean, crisp, fresh and bright white look.

WHY – Guests demand prestine clean. White means you are accountable, guests appreciate this. White can be bleached if need be. Colours suggest your hiding stains and too soft equates to warn out, old, and used.

 

Supplier must be easily accessible for ease of replenishment.

WHY- Relying on a consistent supply and supplier saves a bundle in time and management.

 

Design must be simple and consistently available.

WHY – Elaborate design will lock you into one manufacturer or brand. Maintaining inventory consistency equates to efficiency.

 

Price point must be reasonable.

WHY – Spend too much and you are less inclined to generously replenish.

 

Items must be separately available. (Hoteliers don’t buy in sets)

WHY – Pillowcases, top sheets, and fitted sheets experience varied lifespans.

 

Quick drying for efficient turnovers. (single ply sheets)

WHY – Quick turnover is king. Heavy cotton sheets, or plush bath mats for example take eons to dry.

 

No shrinkage. (Poly blend not 100% cotton)

WHY – Shrinking or piling can render the product unusable.

 

Durable enough to withstand commercial laundering. Poly blend adds strength.  

WHY – Must stand up to the rigors of routine laundering, guest wear and tear.
