Although a year away, Super Bowl 50 is coming quickly. Are your Bay Area hotel renovations complete? What would the reviews of your hotel say if posted today?
Many Bay Area Hotels Renovated, But Not All
Numerous Bay Area hotels underwent renovations in recent years to meet the needs of increased business travelers in the high-tech market, and even more hotel renovations began with the announcement that the San Francisco 49ers’ new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara would host the historical Super Bowl event in 2016.
But some Bay Area hotels still need work to prepare for the flood of people expected that first week in February. Only about a month ago, a traveler posted a review at TripAdvisor.com with the headline “Typical, Outdated Bay Area Hotel in Need of Renovation.” The reviewer pointed out that “the furniture has seen better days (with some of the chairs and tables having nicks and scratches in them) …” The hotel’s general manager politely explained the hotel is currently renovating, and renovations include the addition of new furniture. That hotel will likely be refreshed and ready in time, but what about others?
Several Bay Area hotels also received poor reviews recently that included comments such as the “room had old and very little furniture,” “the door had a huge gap that let in all of the noise,” and “bed bugs, mice, Oh my!”
While you can find thousands of Bay Area hotel rooms worthy of 5-star reviews, these comments show several area hotels still need renovation work. Considering the room squeeze the expected 1 million people attending Super Bowl 50 events will place on the Bay Area, every hotel should and could be ready.
If your hotel recently received a review like this one: “This hotel needs a lot of love and it could be something special – but it is clearly not special now,” and you are not in the process of renovating, get busy! There is still time to bring in new furniture, fixtures and equipment and give your hotel the love it needs before Super Bowl 50 arrives. Your guests will appreciate it, reviews will reflect that, and your business will benefit.
