Boutique Hotels Adopting Technology to Lure Guests

By: Bjorn Olav Jonsson

Boutique hotels owners understand that the first thing guests will ask for is the latest technology and latest electronic gadgets to use. They will look for everything from hi-definition plasma television to high-speed internet accessing connection. These hotels readily provide these facilities to their guests' and this is a point where they get ahead from other form of hotels in this industry.

Throughout the world, technology is the fastest developing thing and boutique hotels also realize this fact that if they get equipped with the latest and the best technology, they can definitely make their guests live longer in their hotels with more comfort and more ease. The other thing is that as technology is getting more and more advanced it is also getting cheaper and cheaper. So, guests generally don't get impressed by 42 inch flat screen television with integrated CD players as they can afford these things at homes also. What they expect from a boutique hotel is something better than home or we can say, they would love to be in boutique hotel if this advanced technology further improves the already improved quality of the services. This is really very important as this will perk up their experience and indirectly the notoriety of the hotel.

Right from sixties to 2007, we have seen many highly advanced hotels [in terms of technology] in Hollywood films but, the fact is that this is not the type of hotels guests wants. What they look for is comfort, style, design, grandeur of a boutique hotel and royal feeling of staying in a boutique hotel. The newest thing added to this list is convenience and effortlessness, which only technology can provide. Boutique hotels have realized this necessity of its consumers and have initiated to use every ultra-modern facility to facilitate their guests and to make them more like a king.

There are many technologies that can be used by a boutique hotel to make guests feel at home. Infact, the mantra is, leave every technology for guests to use and then see; they will be happier and feel more comfortable. Technology used in flexible kitchens allows guests to have breakfast at their own desired time and another technology permits them to set up their room in the best way for them. With the help of technology you can program your media system with the song you want to listen while you wake up in the morning. With the support of technology, you can control the temperature of your room's airconditioner while and you can get the right temperature when you go back. You can use touch screen check-in system rather than taking pains for your room keys.

These and some other technologies can make your guest feel more controlled by him rather than by hotel staff and this is exactly what the modern-day consumer wants. Boutique hotels are very swiftly adopting this concept of 'using technology to serve' as they know this concept is only for their benefit and will only increase their popularity among the guest.
