It is very evident that most of the world businesses have been shut down or affected in a way or another by the coronavirus pandemic, and one of the businesses that are most affected is the hotel businesses. Many hotel CEOs have shared their grievances on how the pandemic has adversely affected their business. Hotels are basically for people traveling and people who want to have a place to stay while they have a good time, but because of the coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown that was imposed, and the guidelines, many hotels are going out of business, because as it stands, only a few people need their services. A survey has it that about 71% of hotels won’t survive another six months without further government covid reliefs. Yes, that is how bad the situation of the hotel business has dropped to ever since the pandemic. The American Hotel & Lodging Association also reported on the 28th of May, 2020 that nearly six out of ten open hotel rooms are empty across the nation without even talking about some hotels that have been permanently shut down. However, as it stands now, there is a vaccine for the coronavirus, and the lockdowns have been lifted in some countries ; many hotels will open back and business would start proper, however, it wouldn’t be as it was before the pandemic.
So, here are some of the things you should anticipate from hotels after the coronavirus pandemic.
- Price: One of the first things that you should be on the lookout for is the prices the hotels will be charging after the coronavirus pandemic. Some of us will think that because the hotels have been out of business for so long, the hotel business would hike their prices, but we should know that it is because of the same shortage of customers that their prices would be the normal affordable price. This is simply because they need more customers and good reviews, and what more can you do to get more customers than to give and provide enticing offers? Also as the pandemic is drifting away, you can get reviews on hotels at UK.collected.reviews where you will be granted access to opinions of previous customers of popular and reputable hotels such as; Crieff Hydro Hotel & Resort reviews and other hotels. This would help you to decide which one you’d like to go to after spending about a whole year stuck in your homes.
- Adjustments: Just like most business sectors, the hospitability (hotel) industry will also come up with better strategies that would not only get them more customers, but it would also make their customers feel safe. There are some set of new corona-virus safety guidelines that have been released by the American Hotel and Lodging Association which would help in elevating the values of the hotel business, especially in the cleaning practices and the operating protocols in their bid to curb the spread of the virus.
Knowing all these, if you want to book a hotel room for whatever purpose you have in mind, you shouldn’t have any fear in booking a room or two because as it stands, the prices are most likely not to be hiked, however, you shouldn’t expect discounts, and your safety will be the hotel’s top priority. Conclusively, the hotel business after the pandemic will be more like it had always been, but better and safer.
