Gone are the days when a television was considered a luxury in hotel rooms. A television is mandatory in good hotels but guests have already moved beyond that. According to surveys, holiday-makers and tourists now look for entertainment beyond the television when traveling.
Business travelers too no longer want to stay in their rooms watching television. Most hotels have now begun hosting cultural shows and inviting celebrities to perform exclusively at hotel events. Some hotels even maintain a night club or bar for 24×7 entertainment of guests. Most hotels have in-house performers to take care of daily musical shows or performances like instrumental performances at dinner-time. Entertainment is the buzz in the hospitality industry along with comfort and security.
- Even if the hotel cannot offer something for entertainment throughout the day, some arrangements should be made for performances at dinner-time. Musical shows with singers, instrumentalists and comedians are always a big hit with guests.
- It is essential to have musicians like guitarists, pianists etc. on the rolls of the hotel to perform on a routine basis.
- Tie-up with entertainment and event management companies to host events at least once a month.
