Finally, the most awaited time of the year is almost here!
I can almost hear the bells jingling in the air and the smell the freshly baked cookies on the kitchen counters.
The thought of Santa's in their red and white delight the inner child within me and an overwhelming urge to decorate trees reminds me it's that time of the year!
It's almost the glorious Christmas!
Christmas times hold a special place of reverence in a hoteliers life. So many people make travel plans for Christmas...so many business opportunities for the hoteliers!
Here's how you as a hotelier, can create a phenomenal Christmas experience for your guests:
1. Start with the marketing
We know you have been campaigning diligently already to invite guests for the Christmas. Most probably a lot of your rooms are already booked for Christmas.
But if you want to drive the maximum hotel room occupancy this winter, show people that you are set to entertain.
Decorate your hotel website and social media accounts with Christmas decorations. Have Christmas special giveaways and contests.
It is all about adding the festive warmth in the winter airs.
2. Offer deals and packages.
Everyone loves a holiday deal! So give out complete holiday experience packages! Join hands with your local Christmas parks and plays!
Don't forget to include some activities for the kids of the family. If you can provide an exciting holiday escape for the entire family in one package, people will be more likely to book with you.
3. Emails and Social media.
Emails can be used to nudge your old guests and inspire them to book with you. A hotel management system can help you a great deal with this task. You can send personalized emails to all your guests by using the guest history stored in your PMS.
Spread the news about your offers. Promote them on social media and on your websites. Integrate your hotel website with a Booking Engine so that people can book directly with you.
4. Celebrate the spirit of Christmas.
The charm of Christmas is in its celebration. Prepare well for the celebrations. Stock on the Christmas delicacies like cookies mulled wines and turkeys! If you aren't a property which provides food with accommodations, it is always a great idea to link up with a restaurant to promote the festival and boost your business during these holidays.
Make your guests feel at the top of the world at your hotel, basking and glowing in the Christmas spirit.
