Any tips for small hotels amidst the pandemic?
I hope all of you are well. I know it's been quite stressful dealing with the coronavirus and that the tourism industry has absolutely taken a hit from this. We run a small hotel with 16 rooms. To be honest, I'm a bit embarrassed to say that we are still grasping on how to respond to this as this is completely new to us. For now, we are practicing a skeletal system with our staff and are disinfecting every 30 minutes.
With regard to our guest, we have decided not to accept new guests for the time being for the safety of both our current guests and staff, as we are worried with the increasing number of cases in our country. However, we are also equally worried in terms of long-term revenue. We don't know until when we can keep up with not accepting new guests as we also have staff we need to pay, etc.
Any tips on what you've done so far with your properties? They'll be much appreciated!
