Hotel Trends 2019: What You Need to Know

Posted on: December 18th, 2018 by Pontarelli Chicago Limousine Service No Comments


In today’s world, hotel guests have higher expectations than ever. Perhaps this is because of the increasing number of hotels and the stiff competition between them, or it may be because today’s society is more outspoken. Staying at the hotel is no longer just about having a comfortable bed to sleep in; hotel guests today enjoy personalized and unique experiences and, as such, our Chicago limo service has decided to put together a list of some of the most popular hotel trends we can expect to experience in 2019.
Before we look at the trends, we recommend employing the services of a concierge car service such as our Chicago airport shuttle service for all your ground transportation needs in the coming year. Traveling is exciting, but the most stressful aspect of it has to be driving and navigating unfamiliar towns and cities. With a concierge car service like ours, however, you don’t have to worry about this. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy a smooth luxurious ride in a deluxe vehicle as a professionally trained chauffeur transfers you to any destination of your choosing. Now, here are a few hotel trends to expect in 2019.

Everything is going smart, so it was only a matter of time before smart technology was implemented in hotel rooms. We already enjoy mobile bookings and payments, but in the coming year we can expect to see the emergence of mobile keys, saving of in-room preferences such as lighting for different times of the day, texting reception as opposed to calling, etc. This trend is designed to personalize each guests experience, truly making their stay feel like home away from home.

Multi-Function Spaces
As it stands, hotel venues are usually designed for very specific purposes. However, in the coming year we can expect to see a lot more flexibility, where venues will be able to accommodate various types of functions from weddings to conferences by creatively using roll-up walls.

Local Transportation
Most high-end hotels normally have shuttles that transfer their guests to and from the airport, but once they are at the hotel the guests normally have to find their own way around the town/city. However, local transportation companies are increasingly becoming open to the idea of partnering with hotels in providing supplementary transportation for guests during their stay. Such a measure will increase the guests’ convenience and will undoubtedly encourage repeat visits to the hotels.

The world is finally realizing just how much strain we have put on our planet and all industries of our economy are looking to adopt environmentally sustainable practices, and the hotel industry has not been left behind. In 2019, we can expect to see more hotels being constructed from recycled building materials, using linen recycling, and installing solar energy. We can also expect to see efforts geared at reducing carbon footprints and the increased use of LED lightning in order to reduce the consumption of energy.
