While remodelling is an expected part of keeping pace with constantly changing decor trends, star-rating requirements, tech advancements and guest expectations, a strong stigma persists around the process. Unlike refurbishing, which might include new linens and a fresh coat of paint, a major renovation is a serious, sledgehammer-worthy undertaking and hoteliers need to consider how the process will affect the guest experience.
Diligent planning, precise time management and ultimate attention to detail are all required of the project team. What ifs are expensive. A dream renovation could turn to disaster very easily for any Owner, Developer or Contractor because of unexpected conditions.
