Hotel Owners, Make the Right First Impression with Our Front of House Hospitality Equipment

21375228_mThink first impressions don’t count?  Remember all those first dates that never turned into second dates until you decided that showing up on your bicycle and asking your date to drive maybe wasn’t such a good idea?  First impressions also make a huge impact in the business world as well.  If you are in the hospitality business, then we’ve got a nice assortment of front of house items to make sure your hotel guests start their stay with great first impression.  Let’s take a look at some of this popular front of house hospitality equipment.

One way to make a first impression and serve a valuable purpose is to use stylish, attractive and high-quality hotel signage.  At RJ Cox, we offer a wide-variety of hotel signage to help direct your guests around your hotel, inform them on on-site events and to display your on-site restaurant menus.  Our signboards and signage offerings include decorative display stands, double-sided outdoor poster frames, internal/external display cases, ceiling mount poster snap frames and more which will help you make a great first impression and leave a lasting one as well.

Once your guests check-in, the last thing they want to do is stand around the lobby waiting for a trolley to get their luggage to their room. And the last thing you want is a pack of angry, exhausted, loud, complaining hotel guests with tired, not-so-well-behaved children in your lobby around greeting your other guests as they arrive.  To help speed up the process of moving your visitors along to their rooms, make sure you have an army of well-maintained, functional, clean and attractive trolley carts.  Our Australian-made birdcage trolley luggage carts are the perfect fit for the job.

Nothing says first-class hotel like piles of rubbish and hundreds of cigarette butts greeting your visitors at every entrance to your hotel.  Is that not the kind of first or lasting impression your business would like to make?  In that case, it is time to take a look at our cigarette ashtray disposal offerings.

To provide visitors to your hotel a way to dispose of both their cigarette butts and rubbish, RJ Cox offers a variety of ashtray bins.  To truly make a great first impression, we would suggest one of our brushed stainless bins with polished ashray tops.  These feature a galvanised liner for easy emptying and come with rubber on the bottom to protect floor surfaces.  Choose from three sizes and shapes including our most-popular 10-litre lobby ashtray bin, a smaller medium round ashtray bin and a uniquely-shaped 18-litre corner ashtray bin.

Remember, first impressions count and a bad first impression can easily turn what could be a repeat customer into a never-to-return again customer.  If you manage or own a hotel, make sure you have the highest-quality, attractive front of house hospitality equipment from RJ Cox.
